Titans Betting Preview
Tennessee just bounced back from that loss to the Colts two weeks ago to beat Baltimore last week 30-24 in overtime. The Titans, playing as six-point underdogs, scored the first seven points of the game but trailed 14-10 at the half. Tennessee then fell behind 21-10 early in the third quarter, rallied to lead 24-21 before allowing the Ravens to kick a field goal with 15 seconds left to force OT. But the Titans then won it with a defensive stop on the first possession of extra time and a 73-yard scoring drive capped off by a 29-yard touchdown bolt by Derrick Henry.
Tennessee out-gained Baltimore 423-306 and out-rushed the Ravens 173-129. So the Titans have actually only out-gained four of their ten opponents this season. But they’ve also out-rushed seven of 10 foes, including the last four.
After starting this season, 5-0, Tennessee is only 2-3 both SU and ATS since.

Free NFL Pick
Indianapolis is the better team here and deserves to be favored. However, the Colts probably won’t benefit from four opponents’ turnovers this week, like they did last week against Green Bay. Meanwhile, Tennessee is playing through a bit of turbulence over the last month or so, but the Titans play the right kind of football for this time of the season. Yes, the Colts out-played Tennessee two weeks ago, but divisional rivals often flip scripts on each other. We’re thinking this one will be close in the fourth quarter, so we’ll take Tennessee and the points. Need a boost to your bankroll?
