Titans finding ways to win

The Titans are riding a three-game win streak right now, all by three points, thanks to a 26-23 OT win over the Eagles last week. Tennessee is now 3-1 on the season, 3-1 against the spread and 2-2 with the over/under total.

Tennessee has managed to win games despite an offense averaging just 18.8 points and 324.8 yards per game. Marcus Mariota has been dealing with a nerve injury in his elbow and hand, but has led the Titans to the past two wins. He has thrown for 547 yard and two touchdowns, but also has three interceptions. The run game has been average, as Derrick Henry is leading the team with 163 yards on 54 carries. Corey Davis is having an improved sophomore season, catching 22 passes for 312 yards. Defensively, the Titans are allowing just 18.3 points per game despite giving up 378.8 yards per contest. Their run defense is allowing nearly 120 yards per game.

Bills shutout in Green Bay

Just a week after a big win over Minnesota, the Bills returned to form last week in Green Bay in a 22-0 loss. The Bills are now 1-3 on the season, 1-3 against the spread and 2-2 with the over/under total.

Buffalo has been a mess on offense this year, averaging just 12.5 points and 260.8 yards per game. Their rushing offense is putting up only 88.3 yards per contest. Rookie QB Josh Allen is actually the leading rusher with 116 yards as LeSean McCoy has just 85 yards this year and has been battling injuries. He is questionable this week because of a hand injury. Allen has thrown for 666 yards and two touchdowns, but has four interceptions and has been sacked 18 times. Defensively, the Bills are allowing 26.5 points and 372.8 yards per game.

NFL Betting Trends


The Titans have hit the over in seven of their last nine games in October, but have hit the under in six of their last eight conference games.


Buffalo has hit the under in four of its last five after a loss, but has hit the over in 17 of its last 22 home games.


I don’t expect the Bills to get shutout at home, but I do expect Buffalo to continue to struggle on offense this week. The Titans are good enough defensively to keep the Bills from breaking out. Buffalo should have a stronger effort this week on defense as well, with the Titans still not really establishing an identity on that side of the ball. Buffalo’s run defense is still pretty solid and Mariota isn’t healthy enough to really carve up opponents with his arm.

NFL Prediction: Titans/Bills Under 39.5
