Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs: Betting Previews
Betting on Tennessee Titans
The Titans have performed admirably against the spread this year. Additionally, they have found ways to win games over the past few weeks.
Their offense isn’t going to set the world on fire. But the defense keeps opponents in check, and the Titans score just enough points on a consistent basis to win games.
On the season, Tennessee ranks 24th in points per game, last in total yards per game, 31st in passing yards per game, and ninth in rushing yards per game.
The Titans don’t feature much in the way of a passing attack. However, Derek Henry and Co. lead a formidable rushing attack.
In the end, this is a team that has trouble finding the endzone on a consistent basis. But they do tend to push the chains and work their way into the red zone often.
Defensively, they are ninth in points against per game, 15th in total yards against per game, 24th in passing yards against per game, second in rushing yards against per game, 17th in sacks, and ninth in interceptions.
If the Titans upset the odds, it will be because of their defense. They will need to find a way to contain Kansas City’s strong offensive attack. Their defensive performance may ultimately tell the story on Sunday Night Football.
Betting on Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs have won three of their past five games overall. Kansas City has been able, albeit not exactly dominant.
For the Chiefs, they feature an almost opposite scheme to that of Tennessee’s, as their offense is incredible, but the defense has labored.
Offensively, Kansas City ranks first in points per game, second in total yards per game, second in passing yards per game, and 23rd in rushing yards per game.
Defensively, they are 23rd in points against per game, 26th in total yards against per game, 30th in passing yards against per game, third in rushing yards against per game, 13th in sacks, and 26th in interceptions.
The Chiefs tend to be especially dominant at home. They feed off the Kansas City home-crowd energy, and that will be the case on Sunday.
However, it won’t be easy for Patrick Mahomes and KC to fare well against the Titans and their impressive defense.
- WR Kyle Phillips was recently placed on the IR due to a hamstring injury
- LB Ola Adeniyi is on the IR due to a neck injury.
- TE Blake Bell has been on the IR since early September.
Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs: Picks & Predictions
The Chiefs are the favorites, without question. But does Tennessee have a chance of upsetting the odds?
Tennessee’s defense should be able to cause the Chiefs some problems. But Mahomes is excellent at making plays happen even with heavy pressure.
The Titans will rely on their rushing game on offense. They will need to find the end zone in order to have a chance on Sunday. If they struggle in the red zone, the Chiefs will cruise to a win.
I expect the Chiefs to ultimately win the game…but the Titans will make this a competitive contest. Tennessee’s defense is going to keep them in the game, which should ultimately lead to them covering the spread.
Go ahead and roll with the Tennessee Titans +12.5 to cover the spread on Sunday.
However, place your moneyline bet on the Kansas City Chiefs in what should be an exciting contest between Tennessee and KC.
