Tips For Betting On Texans Titans – Texans Attempt To Consolidate Their Place In The AFC

Posted by Tony Bryant on 11/28/2012 6:57:59 PM

The Houston Texans are getting nearer and nearer to the goal they want so much: home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs. A win over Tennessee would go a long way toward gaining it.

Why HoustonWill Win

The online sports betting legal communityis very much aware of the fact that the Houston Texans played almost 10 full quarters of football in a five-day stretch, from Nov. 18 through Nov. 22. The Texans won in the final three minutes of overtime against both the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Detroit Lions. It's true that the Texans' defense was noticeably shaky in both games, but the most important thing to remember about Houston's performances is that they were victorious ones. For all the limitations and frailties and slip-ups and deficiencies that were in evidence over the course of that five-day span, Houston still won a pair of games and remained the best team in the AFC.

This is a team that fully knows how to win. It is a team that is pacing itself through a full season, having made the second round of the playoffs a year ago. Houston is continuing to breathe confidence. It continues to find composure in crunch-time situations. The Texans are an unshakable team. They might not play well at times, but they are thoroughly and constantly resolute. It takes a very strong and determined effort to beat a team that is this rugged and resilient. You can't beat Houston on points and with a split decision in a 15-round heavyweight bout. You have to land a knockout punch at some point. That's what the Green Bay Packers did to Houston earlier in the season… before Green Bay's best players got injured in recent weeks.

Is Tennessee the kind of opponent that is likely to threaten Houston? Not really. The Titans lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars this past weekend and have rarely if ever shown that they can play at a higher level for 60 minutes. Weak at quarterback and other skill positions, the Titans just don't figure to be able to match Houston's weaponry on Sunday.

Why Tennessee Will Win

When football betting pundits look at the Titans' path to victory in this tilt, they're going to point out that Houston – despite having a few extra days to prepare after its Thursday game against Detroit – will be psychologically worn down and mentally whipped in this contest. The strain of playing two 72-minute games (in terms of scoreboard clock time; that's 4.8 quarters in each contest) is going to catch up with a team… just not perhaps immediately. Houston won at Detroit on Thanksgiving Day, just four days after winning in overtime at Jacksonville. Surely, the accumulated workload taken on by the Texans will give Tennessee its chance to pull off the upset.

Who Will Win

It’s certainly possible that Tennessee will win, but the Titans just haven't pulled through in pressure situations. Houston, on the other hand, has been the picture of reliability. Pick the Texans here.
