Stephen Nover's NFL Total of the Week
Houston vs. Tennessee,
12/15/2019 13:00 EDT,
Score: 24 - 21
Total: -110/+50½ Over
Go to the head of the line if you knew Tennessee is the hottest Over team in the NFL. The Over has cashed in each of the Titans' last seven games.
Look for another high-scoring matchup with the Titans hosting the Texans.
DeShaun Watson is an elite quarterback spearheading a top-10 offense. Watson will be facing a Titans secondary that is dealing with a cluster injury problem. The Titans could be minus three of their top four cornerbacks along with safety Kenny Vaccaro, who is in concussion protocol.
Sparked by Ryan Tannehill, who is playing his finest ball, the Titans are averaging 31.4 points during the last eight weeks. That's the second-highest point-per-game ranking in the NFL during this span. Houston has allowed opponents to score on 52.8 percent of their possessions during its last four games, which is the highest rate in the league.
Tannehill's strong play has made Derrick Henry even more of a running threat. Henry has rushed for triple-digit yards each of the last four games The Texans' pass rush and rush defense has struggled since JJ Watt was lost for the season.
