Tennessee has dropped back-to-back games since winning its season opener, including a 33-7 blowout loss to the Cincinnati Bengals as 6.5-point road underdogs last week, while going UNDER the betting total in all three affairs. The Titans desperately need signal-caller Jake Locker to perform at a higher level, which is important to consider when making your pro football picks, as his passer rating of 70.8 is one of the league’s worst through three weeks. Tennessee is 5-9 SU and 6-8 ATS as underdogs of 3.5 to 9.5 points the last two-plus seasons, with no clear edge in terms of the betting total (7-7 Over/Under).
The Titans have some options behind Locker, including backup Charlie Whitehurt and sixth-round draft pick Zach Mettenberger. Tennessee certainly needs its tight ends to play in this AFC South matchup, especially Delanie Walker, who has a team-high 17 catches for 233 yards and two touchdowns. Locker will be making just his second career start in this series—throwing for 262 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions in a 27-23 road defeat in 2012.
Indianapolis snapped its two-game losing streak to open the 2014 campaign by picking up a 44-17 blowout victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars as six-point road favorites, while going OVER the betting total for the third consecutive contest. Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has surpassed 240 passing yards in just one of his four career efforts against the Titans, which can’t be ignored when looking over the pro football odds page, but the franchise has put together a five-game win streak in this series. Indianapolis is 6-1 SUATS as favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 points the last two-plus seasons.
The Colts have proven victorious in 10 of their last 11 games against the Titans, while they’ve captured six in a row when playing in Indianapolis in this rivalry. Indianapolis is getting some balance offensively with Ahmad Bradshaw and Trent Richardson running the football, as the two have combined for a fantastic 271 rushing yards in the last two games.
Sports bettors will likely back the Colts due to their 7-0 SUATS mark at home with a total of 45.5 to 49 points since 2012.
