Titans @ Ravens
The Ravens are -10 favorites, and the public is backing them with 56% of bets going towards Baltimore.
Baltimore compiled a 10-5-1 record ATS in the regular season and was 4-1 over the final five games of the regular season. The Titans accumulated an 8-7-1 record ATS.
Tennesse de-throned the all-mighty New England Patriots last week, winning 20-13 to bounce the defending champions from the playoffs. Tennesee finished the regular season with a 10-6 record and was guided to the playoffs by quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Tannehill provided the team with a spark after taking over for Marcus Mariota as the team’s starter. Tannehill racked up 2,742 passing yards, and 22 touchdowns in 12 games played.
Aside from Tannehill, the Titans have two dynamic skill players in running back Derrick Henry and wide receiver A.J. Brown.
Henry was the NFL’s leading rusher in 2019, registering 1,540 yards to elevate the Titans run game to the third-best unit in the NFL. Brown led NFL rookies in receiving yards with 1,051 and is a deep threat that can stretch the field.
That said, the Ravens defense has been excellent this season, allowing an average of 300.6 total yards and 17.6 points per game. The Titans’ offense is in the middle-of-the-pack around the league, but the team relies on their defense to keep them in games.
Tennesse’s defense was sharp in the regular season, surrendering 20.7 points per game on average. Additionally, the Titans had a +6 turnover differential, which was within the top half of the league.
The Titans defense will need to have their best performance of the season versus Baltimore’s league-leading offense.
The Ravens, led by quarterback Lamar Jackson, averaged 33.2 points per game in the regular season. Baltimore was the only team to average 30+ points a game.
The over/under opened at 48.5 but has dropped to 47.5. According to the Action Network, 54% of bets are going towards the under.
