PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, the Chiefs are receiving 56% of the betting tickets and 65% of the money is also on Kansas City to cover the spread.

INJURY REPORT: DeMarco Murray (knee) is out for the Titans while DaQuan Jones (biceps) is out for the year. For the Chiefs, Bennie Logan (knee) is probable but the team will be without safety Eric Berry, pass-rusher Dee Ford and center Mitch Morse. Jarvis Jenkins (knee) and Albert Wilson (hamstring) are both questionable.

OUR PREDICTION: This is a great spot for bettors to take the under because the Titans are struggling offensively and the Chiefs have started to play much better defensively over their last four games. Tennessee has been solid defensively of late as well, holding opponents to 15 points per game over its last three games.

The under is a perfect 4-0 in the Titans’ last four playoff games, is 4-1 in their last five games coming off an ATS win, and is 4-1 in the Chiefs’ last five home playoff games.
