Titans seek first home win
The Tennessee Titans look to avoid an 0-6 start at home this season when they host the Oakland Raiders at 1PM ET.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Raiders are the slight favorite on the road, as they are getting odds of -1 point against the Titans. The over/under total has been set at 44 points. These two meet today at 1PM ET on CBS.
The Titans have two wins this season but none have been at home, as they are 0-5 in home games despite being 2-3 against the spread in those five contests. The big reason for Tennessee’s struggles come from its offense. They have been held to 13 points or less in their last six losses. The Titans rank 30th in scoring (18.2 ppg) and total offense (321 ypg). Marcus Mariota is slowly moving along in his rookie year, throwing for 2,026 yards with 13 touchdowns and six interceptions.
Oakland was a team that looked like it could get in the playoff mix just a few weeks ago, but three straight losses have dropped the Raiders to 4-6 on the year. They are 5-5 against the spread this season and 3-2 ATS on the road. Oakland’s defense has been its issue, as they give up 25.9 points and 405.2 yards per game. They also rank 30th in the NFL in passing defense, allowing 290.5 yards per game through the air. Something is set to give today between a bad Tennessee offense and a bad Oakland defense.
