Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Ravens are 2.5-point favorites to beat the Titans. The total, meanwhile, sits at 41.5 points. As of this writing, 55% of the public betting tickets are on the Ravens to cover the point spread.
Responding to questions about Alex Collins' workload, Ravens coach John Harbaugh said "a fresh running back is a good thing." "We need to spread the load," Harbaugh said. Collins played just 27-of-87 snaps in the Ravens' dispiriting loss to the Browns. His 31 snap percentage was his lowest of the season. Harbaugh might be keeping Collins fresh, but he's doing so at the cost of Buck Allen averaging 2.82 yards per carry and 6.2 yards per catch. Those are wasted plays in the National Football League.
Titans LT Taylor Lewan (foot) returned to practice on Thursday. He went for an MRI earlier this week after suffering the injury in Sunday's loss to Buffalo and must have gotten good news. Barring a setback, Lewan should be ready for Week 6 against Baltimore.
NFL Betting Trends
The over is 9-3 in the Ravens’ last 12 games versus an opponent that owns a winning record.
The under is 7-2 in the Titans’ last nine games versus AFC opponents.
There’s not much to like about this Tennessee offense. The Titans rank 29th in scoring, averaging just 17.4 points per game. They’re also 29th in total yards, 29th in passing yards, and 17th in rushing. The good news, at least for under bettors? Tennessee is also surrendering just 17.2 points per game, which ranks fourth in the NFL. Both of these teams play good defense and as the Ravens showed last week in Cleveland, they can stink up the place offensively as well.
NFL Week 6 Prediction: Ravens/Titans under 41.5
