Why Bet The Tennessee Titans To Beat The Chiefs

The Tennessee Titans are in the playoff hunt going 7-6 SU and 5-8 ATS this season. They are coming off a solid 13-10 win over the Denver Broncos last week. They average 24.7 points per game (11th) and give up 23.5 points per game (20th).

The Titans average 227.8 passing yards per game (25th). QB Marcus Mariota (3086 yards, 25 TDs & 8 INTs) had the worst game of his career in a win last week. Mariota completed only six of 20 passes for 88 yards against the Broncos.

"This is how it’s going to be sometimes," said Mariota. "We had to grind it out a little more on offense, make plays when we needed to and guys did. Again, hats off to the defense, they deserve a lot of credit for this victory, and it just says a lot about this team."

WR Rishard Matthews (49 rec, 695 yards, 7 TD) and TE Delanie Walker (51 rec, 687 yards, 6 TD) are expecting to see more ball going their way this versus the Chiefs than against the Broncos top defense. Tennessee averages 144.5 rushing yards per game (3rd). The offense was carried last week by RB DeMarco Murray (250 car, 1135 yards, 9 TD). He ran for 92 yards and one touchdown on 21 carries last week.

Tennessee has the 22nd-ranked total defense in the NFL. The Titans allow 275.0 passing yards per game (31st) and 86.6 rushing yards per game (3rd). Avery Williamson has 90 tackles, and Brian Orakpo has 10.0 sacks.

Why Bet The Kansas City Chiefs To Beat The Titans

The Kansas City Chiefs are rolling with a 10-3 SU record and 7-6 ATS. They have won their last three games, including a 21-13 victory over the Oakland Raiders last week. They average 23.1 points per game (14th) and 19.6 points per game (8th).

Kansas City averages 236.4 passing yards per game (18th). QB Alex Smith (2831 yards, 12 TDs & 5 INTs) completed 17 of 26 passes for 264 for one touchdown and one interception last week. TE Travis Kelce (70 rec, 916 yards, 3 TDs) remains the number one weapon in the passing offense with speedy newcomer WR Tyreek Hill (56 rec, 547 yards, 6 TDs) adding a new dimension to this team. The Chiefs average 96.2 rushing yards per game (25th). RB Spencer Ware (183 car, 790 yards, 3 TDs) has recorded only one 100-yards game this season.

The Chiefs have the 27th-ranked total defense in the NFL. Kansas City allows 251.0 passing yards per game (18th) and 122.9 rushing yards per game (27th). Derrick Johnson has 90 tackles, but he’s out of the season with an Achilles injury. Dee Ford leads the team with 10.0 sacks.

  • Tennessee is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games

Titans Vs Chiefs Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Chiefs are one of the best teams in the AFC — and a legitimate contender to knock off the Patriots for a Super Bowl berth. Temps at Arrowhead by kick-off are projected to be 11 degrees. That sounds like a formula for disaster for a young quarterback who grew up in Hawaii and an overachieveing team.

The public is backing KC. The sharps are siding with the Titans, snatching all of the +6 lines that were available in Vegas and offshore. It’s more split now.

My final score prediction is Tennessee 27, Kansas City 30.
