NFL Betting Preview: Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans – Sunday, January 9, 2022

by Spooky Express | January 5, 2022 |

The conclusion is upon us for Week 18 of the NFL regular season. This year, every game has built up to this moment for teams to solidify their position in the postseason. A crucial matchup at the top of the AFC will be taking place when the Tennessee Titans visit the Houston Texans.

The Titans find themselves with a chance to lock up the top seed in the AFC and secure home-field advantage with a win against the Texans. A loss could knock them out of the top spot in the AFC and lose the first-round bye as well as home-field advantage. 

On the other hand, Houston does not have any real incentive to play for other than their team pride. Still, the pressure is on for Tennessee to perform in this game and prove themselves worthy of the top overall seed in the AFC.

We have all the coverage for this game and more, so let’s break down the matchup and help you determine your best bets.

Tennessee Titans Betting Preview: Fighting for the one seed in the AFC

When Derrick Henry went down with a fracture earlier this year, nobody thought the Titans would remain as a serious contender. They have found a way to prove every doubter wrong and control every aspect of their destiny for this season.

The scariest part for the rest of the league is that Derrick Henry may be returning to their lineup sooner than we think, and they have hardly even used their biggest off-season acquisition in Julio Jones.

This team is scary and has the makings of everything they need to make a run in the postseason that will be worthy of their potential top seed.

Houston Texans Betting Preview: In a better position than you think

While the Texans have not had anything to play for in quite some time, they certainly are in a much better position than you may realize. Not only do they have several draft picks that will come to fruition, but they also had a solid draft this past year that was headlined by Davis Mills.

Mills has served as the starter for more than a couple of weeks. He looks like he has the tools to be a solid starter at the minimum.

The future could be bright for Texans’ fans with the upcoming draft picks, along with their young roster.
