The Tennessee Titans are almost locked to make the playoffs, and they could take a step closer to securing a spot in the postseason with a win this coming Sunday over the Detroit Lions. The Lions, however, can take advantage of Tennessee’s shaky defense to pull off an upset. Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the Detroit Lions vs Tennessee Titans Regular Season Week 15 Game on December 20, 2020
Where: Nissan Stadium, Nashville
When: Sunday, December 20, 2020, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Detroit Lions (+10.5)
Regular Season Record: 5-8
The first thing to ask about the Lions heading into Week 15 is whether quarterback Matthew Stafford will be healthy enough to play. Stafford was not able to finish last Sunday’s 31-24 home loss to the Green Bay Packers due to a rib injury. However, there is optimism that Stafford will be able to take the field and go up against the Titans’ vulnerable defense that is 29th in the NFL against the pass. The Titans are allowing 273.6 passing yards per game and are last in the league with just 14 sacks on the season. The Lions are also hoping that wide receiver Kenny Golladay will be able to finally return to action after missing multiple games due to a hip injury. A practice appearance this week could very well be a sign pointing to Golladay playing against the Titans.
The Lions are 4-2 against the spread in their last six road games.
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (-10.5)
Regular Season Record: 9-4
The Titans rebounded from their 41-35 home loss to the Cleveland Browns in Week 13 by pummeling the hapless Jacksonville Jaguars on the road last Sunday, 31-10. The Titans once again rode the shoulders of bruising running back Derrick Henry, as the former Alabama Crimson Tide star had 215 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries against the Jags’ wet paper bag defense. That’s the second time this season that he rushed for more than 200 yards, and it won’t be surprising to see him get his third in Week 15, especially since Detroit’s defense against the run is made up of only dried twigs. In fact, the Lions are 29th in the NFL with 132.8 rushing yards allowed per game and 17th with 4.4 rushing yards surrendered per carry.
The over is 7-2-1 in the Titans’ last 10 home games.
The Titans win, 38-30.
