Sunday’s game takes place from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana and will air live on FOX.
The Titans are coming off a 40-17 loss to the Steelers last week to snap a four-game win streak. The Titans are now 6-4 on the season while posting a 7-3 mark with the over. Tennessee has hit the over in three straight games. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 25.3 points and 341.3 yards per game. Their run defense is locking teams up to just 89.2 yards per game. Offensively, the Titans are putting up 22.2 points and 342.6 yards per contest. Marcus Mariota has thrown for 2,089 yards and eight touchdowns, but also has 10 interceptions.

The Colts are coming off a 20-17 loss to the Steelers two weeks ago, before going on the bye. Indianapolis is now 3-7 on the season with a 6-4 mark with the over. The Colts have hit the under in three of their last four games. Indy is struggling on offense this season, averaging just 17.9 points and 325.9 yards per game. Jacoby Brissett has thrown for 2,172 yards and nine touchdowns to lead the offense while T.Y. Hilton has caught 36 passes for 725 yards and three scores. Brissett is questionable for this game due to going through the concussion protocol. Frank Gore is the leading rusher with 509 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Indy is allowing 28 points and 398.7 yards per game. Their past defense is giving up 287.4 yards per contest.
While these two had a high-scoring game in Tennessee earlier this year, the Colts are 8-2 with the under in their last 10 home games and 6-2 with the under against their last 8 against a winning road team. These two have also hit the under in 12 of their last 16 meetings in Indianapolis. I think the Colts have a better defensive effort at home on Sunday while continuing to struggle on offense.
