I bet a large amount for on this game and took Tennessee. Houston has no reason to play this game because they are locked in as the #3 seed and can not improve or diminish this ranking. I will be surprised if Houston doesn't try to treat this as a bye week and sit as many starters as possible. Tennessee is playing for the right to get into the playoffs and that I believe is the reason they win this game. Got it at -3 even

HOU +3.5 (.5u) - The Titans are fighting for a spot in the postseason, but this does not look like a playoff-caliber squad. They haven’t claimed a victory over a team with a winning record since September. Neither offense is good. The Houston D is solid and the Titans D is passable.The better play may be the UNDER.  Although Houston does not need the win, they will have Wade Phillips back on the sidelines this week as well as Andre Johnson. SCORE: Titans 15-Texans 24.

Houston is not gonna want to go into the playoffs on a 3 game losing streak.  Houston wins this one.

Texans packed it in when they won the division. Those 2 losses? Carolina at home and the friggin' Colts?? C'mon man, this one's too easy. Tennessee has the early game, so they won't know if they're in or out, and you know Hasselbeck, he's leaving it all on the field. I'm sure Andre Johnson will be healing, not playing, throw in DelHomme to start the third quarter - along with his prerequisite 2 picks and a lost fumble, and Tennessee wins easily..............

Tough game to cap, i think however that the texans are gonna want some momentum going in to the postseason and may take the training wheels off of taylor yates and with andre johnson back in the lineup now is the time.

Could Tenn have another game that ends with a score of 23 - 17!  Unbelieveable.  I like over here.  I agree that Houston will show up here even with nothing to play for but the over is the safer bet.
