NFL Odds And Lines Week 7: Texans Vs. Titans

The Tennessee Titans are favored to beat the Houston Texans after getting some bye week rest

The Houston Texans probably felt pretty lucky going into this season. Finally, a year without Peyton Manning before Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson get old. Unfortunately, Arian Foster's injury to start the season made things a little tough, and now they're having to deal with an injury to Johnson as well. Things haven't gone well in the last two weeks for the Texans without their star wideout, as they've lost to both the Oakland Raiders and Baltimore Ravens in successive weeks.

Now, they travel away to face the 3-2 Tennessee Titans. While the Titans lost their last game convincingly on the road to Pittsburgh, they're coming off a bye week and should be rested after taking a nice little physical beating at Heinz Field. That rest and the injury to Johnson has caused those who set odds to make Tennessee a three-point favorite. That line hasn't moved at all since the odds came out.

If you like to go against the wisdom of the oddsmakers (or just take free points), Houston might not be a bad bet. They're one of the best rushing teams in the league even with Foster banged up for part of this year, thanks to Ben Tate, and that's always helpful when trying to beat good teams on the road.
