Ryan Tannehill has been a spark for the Tennessee Titans, but can he lead his team to another win when they face the Carolina Panthers on the road? The Panthers are coming off a severe beatdown at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers and could use a pick-me-up win to restore their moxie. The Titans and the Panthers are +8000 and +12500 to win Super Bowl 54, respectively.

Betting on the Tennessee Titans (4-4)
With how Ryan Tannehill is playing since getting named as the starter, Marcus Mariota may not get back his old role at least for the foreseeable future. Tannehill passed for 193 yards and three touchdowns with zero turnovers on 21-of-33 completions in Tennessee’s 27-23 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home last Sunday. Tannehill has passed for 505 yards and five touchdowns against an interception over the last two games. Credit for the win also goes to the Titans’ defense, which forced three turnovers. The Titans are averaging 1.6 takeaways per game, and those extra possessions created by the defense need to be spent efficiently by Tannehill and the Titans. Tennessee is also fourth in the NFL with just 16.9 points allowed per game. Running back Derrick Henry can look forward to a solid output against Carolina, which is only 27th in the league against the run.
The Titans are 2-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last two games overall.
Betting on the Carolina Panthers (4-3)
We get it. Christian McCaffrey is beast. But he can’t do it all for the Panthers. McCaffrey rushed for 117 yards and a touchdown and added 38 receiving yards on four catches and five targets in Week 8 for the Panthers, and Carolina still lost to the San Francisco 49ers in a massacre, 51-13, on the road. Kyle Allen could not do anything against the Niners’ defense, which picked him three times and sacked seven times. It would be a big lift for the Panthers if wide receiver Curtis Samuels live up to his preseason hype. He only had 46 receiving yards against San Francisco, catching four passes out of 11 targets. In any case, Allen needs a stronger pass protection. On the flipside, the Panthers’ pass rush is expected to be a problem for the Titans, as Carolina is second in the entire league with 30 sacks. That doesn’t bode well for Tennessee’s offensive line, which has allowed 34 sacks on the season – -second most overall.
The Panthers are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games as the home team.
The Panthers win, 22-19.
