Titans vs. Browns Total Pick
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Tennessee is favored on the road, as the Titans are getting odds of -5.5 points against the Browns. The over/under total is listed at 45.5 points. These two have split their last 10 meetings in this series and they have hit the over in five straight encounters. The public betting in this one has Tennessee getting 72 percent of the wagers. Sunday’s games takes place from FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio and will air live on CBS.
Cleveland is coming off a 33-17 loss at Houston last week to fall to 0-6 on the season. The Browns are 4-2 with the under and 3-0 with the under at home. Cleveland has been a mess on offense this year, averaging just 15.7 points and 324.7 yards per game. After benching DeShone Kizer, he is back to being the starting QB. He has thrown for 851 yards with three touchdowns, but also has nine interceptions and has been sacked 12 times. Isaiah Crowell is the leading rusher with 252 yards while Duke Johnson Jr. has 26 catches for 269 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, the Browns are allowing 26.2 points per game, but giving up just 325 yards per contest. Their run defense is holding opponents to just 84.3 yards per game. Jason McCourty is leading the defense with three interceptions.
Tennessee is coming off a 36-22 win at home over the Colts last week to improve to 3-3 on the season. The Titans are 4-2 with the over this year and 2-1 with the over on the road. Tennessee has posted 24.3 points and 342 yards per game on offense this year. Marcus Mariota has thrown for 1,098 yards and four touchdowns with four interceptions. He also has run for 116 yards and three scores. Derrick Henry and DeMarco Murray have combined for 631 rushing yards and four touchdowns. Murray is questionable for Sunday due to a hamstring injury while Delanie Walker is also questionable with a calf injury. He is the second-leading receiver on the team. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 27.3 points and 346.7 yards per game. The unit has just nine sacks and nine turnovers this year.
Cleveland’s defense is actually pretty good. The scoring average is due to a number of defensive touchdowns the offense has allowed. Cleveland’s defense has stepped up at home and the Browns are 12-2 with the under in their last 14 home games and in nine of their last 12 after a loss. The Titans’ defense has struggled, but I don’t think they will have trouble slowing down Kizer.
