Steelers vs. Titans Week 6 Odds
NASHVILLE, TN (The Spread) – The Steelers and Titans kick off Week 6 in the NFL with a Thursday night matchup at 8:20PM ET. Let’s check out the odds.
PITTSBURGH: The Steelers go back on track last week with a 16-14 come-from-behind victory over the Eagles. Pittsburgh is now 2-2 overall but has failed to cover in three of its first four games thus far. Ben Roethlisberger leads the team with 1,111 passing yards and Heath Miller has a team-high four touchdowns. The Steelers are 0-2 on the road this year, failing to cover in losses against Denver and Oakland.
TENNESSEE: The Titans fell to 1-4 on the year with a 30-7 blowout loss to the Vikings last Sunday. Tennessee has failed to cover the spread in four of its first five games, with its only cover coming in a 44-41 victory over the Lions at home in Week 3. Jake Locker leads the team with 781 passing yards but he’s out for the second straight week, meaning Matt Hasselbeck will once again take the snaps for Tennessee. Chris Johnson is off to a brutal start, rushing for just 210 yards while Nate Washington has a team-high 257 passing yards. It’s been a disastrous start for a team that was supposed to at least compile a .500 season this year.
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Steelers are 6-point favorites over the Titans, while the over/under total is currently sitting at 43.5 points. The Steelers enter this game with a straight up record of 2-2 and are 0-2 on the road, while the Titans are 1-4 overall and 1-1 at home.
TRENDS: The underdog is 6-2 against the spread in the last eight meetings between these two teams, while the Steelers are just 1-4 ATS in their last five games versus a team with a losing record, 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall, and 0-6 ATS in their last six road games. The Titans are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games versus AFC opponents and 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine games overall, but are 4-0 ATS in their last four Thursday games.
