Betting on the Tennessee Titans (3-4)
It’s disappointing to be a Titans fan these days. Most folks thought that Tennessee’s offense is going to take flight with the team hiring rising star offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur, but so far, the Titans’ attack remains spotty and generally grounded. The Titans are just 30th in the league with 15.1 points per game and 30th in total offense with just 280.9 total yards per contest. Before a Week 8 bye, the Titans suffered their third loss in a row, falling prey to the Los Angeles Chargers on the road, 20-19, back in Week 7. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota had 237 yards and a touchdown with an interception while completing 24 of 32 passes. A big culprit to blame for Tennessee’s offensive malaise is the team’s turnover-prone ways on that side of the field. The Titans, especially of late. The Titans are averaging 1.1 giveaways per game, but that has shot up to 1.3 over their last three contests. Meanwhile, running backs Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry will look to dent Dallas’ run defense that just got embarrassed by a senior citizen last Week 7, when Adrian Peterson went 99 rushing yards on 24 carries against it.
The under is 2-0 in the Titans’ last two road games.
Betting on the Dallas Cowboys (3-4)
The Cowboys have something to feel excited about coming off a Week 8 bye. Although the team lost the last time they took the field – a 20-17 defeat at the hands of the Washington Redskins on the road in Week 7 – the Cowboys have a shiny new offensive weapon to parade this coming Monday. Aware that their offense needs a jolt, the Cowboys made a bold move following their loss to Washington by acquiring wide receiver Amari Cooper from the Oakland Raiders in exchange for a 2019 first-round pick. Cooper is going to change the dynamics of Dallas’ offense that didn’t have a definitive No.1 wide receiver prior to his arrival. With Cooper, Dallas gets a receiver who’s had two 1,000-yard seasons and two Pro Bowl appearances. The Cowboys are currently averaging just 183.1 passing yards per game, but that should experience an uptick because of Cooper’s presence. In addition, Cooper is going to help loosen up opposing defenses’ focus on running back Ezekiel Elliot. The Cowboys are currently fourth in the league with 136.9 rushing yards per game.
The Cowboys are 2-1 in their last three home games.
Dallas takes down the Titans at home, 27-21.
