Welcome to the tragedy angle. In one of the most lucrative angles in all of sports, a “tragedy spot” is the definition of putting the records, X’s and O’s handicapping, and all other things aside. Think back over the years and what sports have meant for cities and players going through a tragedy spot. The Houston Astros, Boston Red Sox, and countless players playing for something more than themselves have shown us that while dark, there is no greater motivator in the world.
Enter The Houston Texans tonight, in a tragedy spot.
October 2005, Giants owner Wellington Mara died. Giants won 36-0 the next game.
October 2011, Raiders owner Al Davis died. Raiders win SU at Houston as 4.5pt underdogs.
October 2018, Seahawks owner Paul Allen died. Seahawks won at Detroit as 3pt underdogs.
November 2018, Texans owner Bob McNair died. Texans -4 on MNF. Titans might be without DC Dean Pees again.
Houston should come out firing and motivated.
3. DeAndre Hopkins Over 92 Receiving Yards & 4. Over 29.5 Longest Reception
Targeting Malcolm Butler has been very profitable this season. Malcolm Butler is only playing due to his lucrative contract and name value, but the Tennessee Titans are showing us Bill Belichick may have been the smartest person in the room shelving Malcolm Butler for The Super Bowl as, for whatever reason, Butler is still on shadow-duty to opposing teams number one wide receiver. Let’s check out how that’s going over his last few games.
Butler Vs. TY Hilton: 9 receptions, 155 yards, 2 TD
Butler Vs. Josh Gordon: 4 receptions, 81 yards
Butler Vs. Amari Cooper: 4 receptions, 58 yards, 1TD
