Titans Texans Betting Tips – Texans Stay On Top in AFC South
Tennessee Titans @ Houston Texans – Sunday September 30, 2012 1:00PM EST
The Detroit Lions made one of the biggest mistakes most betting websites have ever seen when head coach Jim Schwartz did not kick the field goal to tie the game in overtime. Instead of re-tying the game and turning it into sudden death, the Lions went for it five yards from the goal line on fourth and one and did not get there. But was it a victory for the Titans or a loss for the Lions? The Titans’ defense did make the final stop to win the game, but it was one of the few stops that the Titans’ defense was able to make all day long.
For two years now, many football betting experts have been predicting that the Houston Texans are ready for a breakout year. It looks like that time has finally come as the Texans sit on top of the AFC South with a perfect 3-0 record. The Houston Texans are talented on both sides of the ball and in every aspect of the game. When a team plays Houston, it needs to have everything in order and be ready for a battle. While the Tennessee Titans have shown that it is a game team, it may not have enough game to counteract the Houston Texans.
Why the Titans Will Win
The Detroit Lions are supposed to have one of the up and coming defenses in the NFL. But quarterback Jake Locker and the Tennessee offense was able to put up 41 points on the Detroit defense. The online sportsbook experts know that the Texans have a much more potent defense than Detroit, but the Titans have shown that it can put up points when it needs to. The only real chance the Titans have at winning this game is to get Houston into a shootout. But even that could be risky if Tennessee cannot run the ball.
Why the Texans Will Win
There is a long list of reasons why the Houston Texans will win this game, but at the top of that list is the word balance. The Titans cannot focus on stopping the Houston offense and then exploit a weak Houston defense because Houston does not have a weak defense. There is no one area that a team can look at on this Houston team and exploit a weakness to win a game. Houston has one the best running games in football and a passing game that will give any defense fits. This just looks like a long day for the Tennessee Titans.
The Bottom Line
The Texans will eventually lose a game this season, it just won’t be in week four. Houston is the kind of complete team that gives head coaches nightmares. With Tennessee having issues on the offensive line and in the defensive secondary, this should be a win for the Houston Texans.
Pick: Houston Texans
