Baltimore Ravens DFS Spin
Mark Andrews caught 4-of-7 targets for 27 yards in the Ravens' Week 17 win against the Bengals. Andrews was second on the team in targets on a day that saw Lamar Jackson throw the ball just 18 times in an easy win. Most Baltimore starters, including Andrews, were rested in the fourth quarter. The athletic tight end enjoyed a 24 percent target share this season, and heads into the postseason as Jackson's most dependable target.
Tennessee Titans DFS Spin
Ryan Tannehill completed 18-of-27 passes for 216 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' 41-38, Week 17 win over the Texans, adding seven carries for 38 yards and two additional scores. With the nail-biting win — fill-in K Sam Sloman banked in the 37-yard game winner with no time remaining — the Titans clinched the No. 4 seed and a home game. It will be a 2019-20 Divisional Round rematch with the piping-hot Ravens. Tannehill enters the playoffs with a host of new career highs, including his most passing scores (32) and fewest interceptions (seven) for a 16-game season. 2020 was also the first time since 2015 Tannehill started all 16 contests. Next week is going to be a slugfest, and on paper profiles as one of the most exciting matchups of the entire postseason.
Ravens vs. Titans Betting Prediction
The Ravens are just 3-7-1 against the spread in their last 11 meetings with the Titans and have failed to cover in nine of their last 13 games after allowing less than 150 yards passing in their previous contest. The Titans, meanwhile, are 4-1 against the spread in their last five Wild Card games, which includes their upset victory last year in New England versus the Patriots. With this game figuring to be close, having the hook on the field goal is paramount if you take the Titans.
