Tennessee at Houston

1.5 units on Game Total UNDER 45.5 -110 (risk 1.5 to return 2.86) RESULT: LOSS
Houston has clinched the AFC South, and Tennessee clinches a playoff spot with a win or a tie plus a Pittsburgh loss, or a Pittsburgh loss plus an Indianapolis loss or tie. The Texans have gone UNDER in six of their last eight games, including their 23-20 win at Tampa Bay last week. They intercepted Jameis Winston four times and won despite a subpar performance by Deshaun Watson, who completed 19 of 32 for 184 yards and an interception, and he was sacked five times. These teams are playing each other for the second time in three weeks, and Houston won the first meeting, 24-21, as it went UNDER by five points. Also, three of the last four meetings have stayed UNDER. The UNDER is 7-1 in the Texans' last eight games versus AFC South teams, and they are 8-3 UNDER their last 11 home games. Also, the UNDER is 35-17-1 in Houston's last 53 December games. Houston wide receivers Will Fuller (groin) and DeAndre Hopkins (illness) are questionable, and Watson has been limited with a back injury. Play the UNDER.
