Betting on the Tennessee Titans
The Titans remain the leaders of the AFC South, but their three consecutive losses have made it tougher than expected with the Jaguars just two games behind.
Tennessee’s defense, their key throughout the season, has collapsed and in the last two games they have allowed more than 35 points to their opponents. While they are second in total passing yards (3,688) and passing touchdowns (25) conceded, they tie with the Patriots regarding the fewest rushing touchdowns allowed (six).
The Titans need to improve on this subject, considering that they are one of the weakest offenses in the circuit: they record the fourth-fewest passing yards with 2,284 and only 14 passing TDs, and their 4.3 yards per rush is a very low average for an offense that has Derrick Henry as its running back.
Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers remain on track for the postseason and while the Patriots occupy the final wild card spot in the AFC, the Los Angeles team has the same record as New England and the Jets.
On the offensive side, the offense lives and breathes for what Justin Herbert does as a leader. The Chargers are third in passing yards with 3,548, plus 21 TDs and just seven interceptions. The issue arises when they run the ball, as they have only nine touchdowns and the second-lowest average of 3.7 yards per rush in the league.
For their part, the defense has had to deal with several important injuries and they are the fifth team with the most points conceded with 326. They also average the third-highest yards per play at 6.0 and the 21 passing TDs allowed is the fifth-highest figure in the circuit. Regarding the ground game, their performance is also subpar, as they share with the Giants the highest average of rushing yards allowed with 5.4.
These two defenses are not at their best, but Sunday’s game is extremely important for both teams and is a good opportunity for the Titans to return to their good performances and for the Chargers to improve their numbers against a rather poor offense.
The Over has occurred in five of the last seven meetings between the two in Los Angeles, but this year in Tennessee the Under has occurred in eight of 13 meetings, while the Chargers have seen the Under on seven occasions.
Prediction: Under (TEN 20 – LA 24).
