Eagles win in Wentz’ return
The Eagles picked up a 20-16 win at home over the Indianapolis Colts in the first game back for QB Carson Wentz. Philly is now 2-1 on the season with a 1-2 record against the spread and 2-1 mark with the under. The Eagles have hit the under in four of their last five, dating back to the preseason.
Philadelphia has remained strong on defense this year, allowing just 18.3 points and 334 yards per game. Their run defense is allowing just 61.7 yards per contest. On offense, the Eagles are putting up 19.7 points and 359 yards per game. Wentz threw for 255 yards and a touchdown in his debut last week, but was sacked five times. The team has been without Jay Ajayi in the backfield, but he is expected to suit up this week despite a lingering back injury.
Titans grind out win
After a loss at Miami to open the season, the Titans have picked up a pair of 3-point wins over the Texans and Jaguars over the last two weeks. Tennessee is 2-1 against the spread as well and 2-1 with the under. The Titans have hit the under in four of their last five, including preseason games.
Tennessee has been holding up on defense, allowing just 16.7 points and 350 yards per game. The concern for the Titans is on offense, as it is putting up just 16.3 points and 295 yards per game thus far. Marcus Mariota didn’t start last game, but was forced in due to injuries. He is still dealing with a nerve issue in his elbow and hand. He will have to play with Blaine Gabbert still out with a concussion. Mariota has thrown for just 203 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. Dion Lewis is the leading rusher with 143 yards and a score.
NFL Betting Trends
The Eagles have hit the under in nine of their last 13 games in September, but have hit the over in 20 of their last 28 road games.
The Titans are 17-2-1 with the over in their last 20 Week 4 games and they have hit the over in four straight after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game.
This is shaping up to be another ugly game for the Titans and Eagles. Wentz is still getting accustomed to playing again with his repaired knee and facing a physical defense. Mariota is definitely not 100 percent and facing a very aggressive defense. At home, I expect the Tennessee defense to rise to the occasion and keep this game close and competitive. That means it is likely to be low scoring.
NFL Prediction: Eagles/Titans Under 41
