ATS PICK: Tennessee

Of course there’s a chance that Houston figured it out.
The coaching change from Bill O’Brien to Romeo Crennel opened up the offense, the passing game finally clicked better, and the team got its first win of the season five games in.
It was against Jacksonville, but it was a win.
Tennessee played Tuesday night, it didn’t practice much the week before, and now it might be just a bit … off.
It certainly wasn’t in the 42-16 win over Buffalo, playing as sharp a game as anyone had all season long, especially considering the circumstances.
But again, Houston beat Jacksonville.
The 3.5 is way low considering this is an unappreciated 4-0 Tennessee team playing with extreme confidence. It managed to hold down the Buffalo running game, it didn’t allow much with the passing attack, and it generated three takeaways. Now, the D is second in the NFL forcing nine turnovers.
The Texans don’t force takeaways – the two against the Jaguars were the first they’ve come up with all year – and Tennessee has only given it up once.
You should like the 4-0 team, you should like it at home, and you should like it only giving up 3.5.
