Betting on the Tennessee Titans (-1.5)

Tennessee had a forgettable Sunday, as the Titans lost to the Colts, 24-17. That said, Marcus Mariota still looked like a bonafide superstar in the making, passing for 290 yards and two touchdowns without an interception on 25 of 38 completions.

The Titans probably would’ve come away the victors if it weren’t for a bad offensive line that allowed the Colts take down Mariota five times for a loss of 36 yards. DeMarco Murray, meanwhile, rushed for 70 yards but took 21 carries to do that. Chicago might have a sound defense, but it just surrendered 329 yards to the Giants last Sunday with 102 coming on the ground.

Considering that the Titans are third in the league in rushing yards, expect Murray and company to exploit holes on Chicago’s defense that allowed Rashad Jennings torch it for 85 yards and a TD on 21 carries.

The over is 7-2 in the Titans’ last nine games overall.

Betting on the Chicago Bears (+1.5)

The Bears return to Soldier Field after being away for two weeks, time spent losing back to back games to the Tampa Bay Bucs and the New York Giants, respectively.

It’s been a season of struggle for Chicago, but that can’t be said of its defense. After all, the Bears are 10th in total defense, 12th against the pass, and 12th too against the run. And upon seeing Mariota get sacked five times last week, Chicago’s pass rush must be licking its chops at the prospect of repeatedly putting the Titans QB on the ground. The Bears are 10th in the league with 24.0 sacks, though they failed to register one in the loss 22-16 loss to the Giants in Week 11.

The Bears don’t have Alshon Jeffery (suspended), leaving the team without one of its reliable playmakers for the Tennessee game. That should give the likes of Zach Miller and Cameron Meredith as the top options downfield again for Jay Cutler, who passed for 252 yards and a touchdown with an interception on 17 of 30 completions.

The Bears are 2-1 ATS in their last three home games.

Writer’s Prediction

Tennessee (-1.5) wins, 23-21.
