The Indianapolis Colts failed their first regular-season test since Andrew Luck’s retirement. They will give it a go again, this time during the Tennessee Titans’ season debut at home this coming Sunday. The Titans are riding a wave of momentum after humiliating the Browns last week.

Betting on the Indianapolis Colts (0-1)
It’s not easy to blame an old man, but the Colts, whether they admit it or not, would have won Week 1’s matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers on the road if it weren’t for 46-year-old Adam Vinatieri’s missed field goals and a botched extra-point kick. The Colts ended up losing that game in overtime, 30-24, but they should still like what they saw from quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who’s taken over the now-retired Andrew Luck. Brissett completed 20 of 27 passes for 190 passing yards and two touchdowns while running back Marlon Mack went off for 174 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries. Meanwhile, wide receiver T.Y. Hilton showed terrific rapport with Brissett, recording 87 receiving yards and two touchdowns on eight catches and nine targets. Hilton may see even more opportunities with wide receiver Devin Funchess hitting th injured reserved list after suffering a broken collarbone. Deon Cain and tight ends Jack Doyle and Eric Ebron are also bound to potentially receive more attention from Brissett.
The under is 7-3 in the Colts’ last 10 games.
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (1-0)
The Titans left Ohio last Sunday with big smiles across their faces, thanks to their shocking 43-13 road win over the Cleveland Browns. The Titans came to Cleveland as 5.5-point underdogs, but covered that spread in an incredibly easy fashion. Quarterback Marcus Mariota went 14 for 24 for 248 passing yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions. Tight end Delanie Walker looked very thrilled to his return to football after missing almost all of 2018 due to a season-ending injury. Walker destroyed the Browns’ defense for 55 receiving yards and two touchdowns on five receptions. Running back Derrick Henry had 84 rushing yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. It was the Titans’ defense that impressed the most, though, and they will look to crippled the Colts’ attack with it. Tennessee got into Baker Mayfield numerous times, sucking away the confidence of the Browns’ brash QB by recording five sacks which resulted in a loss of 41 yards for Cleveland. The Titans also intercepted Mayfield three times. The Colts have a sturdy offensive line, but Cameron Wake, who had 2.5 sacks against Cleveland, is going to be a problem for Indianapolis.
The Titans are 6-4 against the spread (ATS) in their 10 home games.
The Titans win, 26-23.
