Titans vs. Colts Pick
In the most anticipated matchup of Week 13, the Indianapolis Colts will host the Tennessee Titans at 1:00PM ET on Sunday.
The Titans won their fifth straight game by rallying in dramatic fashion to beat the Cardinals 20-17 as a 3.5-point favorite in Week 12. The combined score fell under the posted total of 44.5 as Vince Young threw for 387 yards with a touchdown for Tennessee. Chris Johnson rushed for 154 yards with a touchdown in the win.
The Colts beat the Texans 35-27 as a 4-point favorite in Week 12 to stay undefeated on the season. The combined score went over the posted total of 48 points as Peyton Manning threw for 244 yards and three touchdowns. Dallas Clark also chipped in nine catches for 63 yards and a touchdown.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Colts 7-point favorites over the Titans in Week 13. The over/under total for this game is set at 47 points.
Even though the Colts are 11-0 and the Titans are just 5-6, the point spread has been set too high in this game. This contest should live up to the hype and therefore, remain tight all four quarters.
Tennessee is 4-1 against the spread in its last five games and 5-2 against the number in its last seven games when playing Indianapolis. For as good as they’ve been all season, the Colts are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games at home.
The Titans have been red-hot since Jeff Fisher made the switch from Kerry Collins to Young, who has matured as a passer over the past five weeks. The Colts are banged up defensively, so Young and Johnson should have some success moving the ball. Also, Tennessee’s defense has played much better since the start of the season and with their backs against the wall yet again, the Titans are going to fight to the death.
Our free pick prediction for this game is the Titans +7 and the under 47. The total has gone under in seven of Tennessee’s last eight games when playing on the road against Indianapolis and we think this contest will be more low-scoring than people think.
Our NFL Week 13 Free Pick for this matchup is: TENNESSEE TITANS +7 and UNDER 47.
343 Tennessee Titans +7 Over 47
344 Indianapolis Colts –7 Under 47
Houston is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games when playing on the road against Jacksonville
