The Tennessee Titans look to stay hot while building on a four-game winning streak. The Tennessee Titans have won four straight home games. Ryan Tannehill is completing 73.4 percent of his passes for 1,993 yards, 15 touchdowns and five interceptions. Tannehill and Marcus Mariota have combined for 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions. A.J. Brown and Corey Davis have combined for 1,239 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Adam Humphries has 37 receptions.

The Texans are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. AFC and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Titans are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite, 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 20-9 in Texans last 29 vs. AFC. The over is 7-0 in Titans last 7 games overall. The Texans are 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 meetings. The favorite is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 meetings. The home team is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
The Houston Texans are coming off a loss to the Denver Broncos where they were double-digit favorites at home, and now they look for their first road win since October 13. The Tennessee Titans have won six of their last seven games and have topped 30 points in each of their last four games. Tannehill is playing some of the best football of his career and Henry is piling up impressive numbers on the ground. The Tennessee Titans are a physical bunch that should bully the Texans in the trenches and shorten the game by chewing up the clock. I'll lay the field goal with the hotter team at home.
