Tennessee will go on the road after playing three consecutive home games, as it looks to bounce back from a 26-17 defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs as 2.5-point underdogs Sunday, while going OVER the betting total for a second consecutive contest. The Titans sent out quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick last week—completing 21 of 41 passes for 247 yards. The team sits behind the Indianapolis Colts and ahead of the Houston Texans in the AFC South standings, which is important to consider when making your NFL expert picks. Tennessee is 0-2 SUATS as underdogs of 10 or more points since the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 2-0 in that situation.
The Titans have dropped three straight road games against NFC opponents, which includes getting outscored 85-14 at Minnesota and Green Bay in two such games a season ago. Tennessee ranks 19th in the NFL with a 3.7 yards per carry, which is an interesting statistic given that fact that it ranks fourth with 31.4 rushing attempts a contest. Running back Chris Johnson is one of the key players in this matchup, while he rushed for 134 yards and two touchdowns in Seattle in 2010.
Seattle is 4-1 SUATS through five games this season, as it looks to recover from a 34-28 defeat to the Indianapolis Colts as three-point road favorites, while going OVER the betting total for a third consecutive affair. The Seahawks did win the statistical battle by 106 yards in that affair, while it has won the ground battle in four consecutive weeks. The franchise has won 10 consecutive games at CenturyLink Field, with its last such loss coming on Dec. 24, 2011. Seattle is 12-5 SU and 11-6 ATS as favorites the last two-plus seasons.
The Seahawks are allowing 4.0 yards per carry and 109.0 a game on the ground, which is important to consider when looking over the pro football odds page. Seattle gained 218 yards on the ground last week—marking the first loss in its last eight games after rushing for 200 or more.
Sports bettors will likely back the total, as the OVER is 9-4 in their last 13 games.
