The Titans enter play having won four of their past five games overall. Their most recent loss was two weeks ago in heartbreak fashion against the Kansas City Chiefs. They rebounded nicely with a strong performance against the Broncos in a win this past weekend.
Green Bay snapped a losing streak with an overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. The Packers still are not playing well overall, but perhaps that victory will give them a much-needed boost.
The Packers will look to take care of business against the Titans at home on Thursday.
Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 PM EST on Thursday, November 17th, at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI. Let’s take a look at the odds, trends, and predictions for this contest.

Betting Backdrops Per Team
Tennessee Titans Overview:
The Titans earned a 17-10 win on Sunday. Their defense has allowed exactly 10 points in each of their past three victories. Tennessee’s offense is capable of putting points on the board, but the defense has the ability to lead them to wins.
They should be in line for a strong effort against a Green Bay offense that has labored in 2022. With that being said, the Packers found some rhythm against Dallas this past weekend.
- The Tennessee Titans are 7-2 against the spread this year.
- The Titans are 4-1 against the spread on the road.
- Tennessee is 3-1 against the spread when playing as an underdog in 2022.
- They are 2-1 against the spread as an away underdog this season.
The Titans have been listed as underdogs in about half of their games this season. Despite being one of the better teams in the league, Tennessee tends to get overlooked by many. They don’t feature a strong passing attack like many elite teams do, and they rely on defense to win games.
But if it works, it works, and the Titans are 7-2 against the spread overall this season.
Offensively, they are 25th in points per game, last in total yards per game, 31st in passing yards per game, and ninth in rushing yards per game. Derrick Henry, who’s rushed for over 920 yards and added nine touchdowns, has been their saving grace on offense.
However, the passing game has been underwhelming, to say the least.
Defensively, the Titans are eighth in points against per game, 23rd in total yards against per game, 31st in passing yards against per game, second in rushing yards per game, fourth in sacks, and seventh in interceptions.
From a yards per game per perspective, the Titans have struggled against the pass. But Tennessee also is tremendous at getting to the quarterback and causing havoc. Their ability to garner sacks and force turnovers has been impressive.
And they have also been impressive against the run.
If they can consistently pressure Aaron Rodgers on Thursday while containing the Green Bay rushing attack, the Packers are going to be in for a long night offensively.

Green Bay Packers Overview:
The Packers won 31-28 over the Cowboys to snap a losing streak. It was a crucial win that kept their playoff chances alive. With that being said, Green Bay is still just 4-6 on the season and would benefit mightily from a lengthy winning streak.
However, it will prove to be quite the challenge to get the job done against the pesky Titans.
- The Green Bay Packers are 4-6 against the spread so far this season.
- Green Bay is 2-2 against the spread when playing at home.
- The Packers are 1-5 against the spread as a favorite in 2022.
- They are 1-2 against the spread as a home favorite this year.
The Packers’ 1-5 against the spread record when playing as a favorite sums up their season. Their lofty expectations have fallen by the wayside, and they will need to now play a gritty and inspired brand of football in order to end the year on a high note.
And that is exactly what they did against Dallas. But can the Packers keep it going against the Titans and their stingy defense?
Green Bay’s offense ranks 24th in points per game, 13th in total yards per game, 7th in passing yards per game, and 12th in rushing yards per game.
Defensively, they are 16th in points against per game, ninth in total yards against per game, third in passing yards against per game, 26th in rushing yards against per game, 21st in sacks, and 13th in interceptions.
The Packers’ defense does not receive as much credit as it probably should. But they have struggled in terms of containing opposing running games, and that happens to be what Tennessee specializes in.
If Green Bay can limit the Titans in the red zone and force them into relying on field goals, the Packers will have a chance to cover the spread while winning their second consecutive game.
The most intriguing element of the game for the Packers will be to watch Aaron Rodgers against the Titans’ secondary. As aforementioned, Tennessee has given up a decent amount of yards to opposing passing attacks, so that will be the key to winning on Thursday.
