The NFL continues to show the UK what real football is as they send Tennessee and LA to London England for another edition of the league’s International Series.
After a 3-1 start to the season, the Tennessee Titans have dropped to a 3-3 slate, thanks to back-to-back losses to the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens in Weeks 5 and 6, respectively. They will look to avoid going below .500 for the first time this season when they travel across the pond for a showdown with the rejuvenated 4-2 Los Angeles Chargers, who are +800 to win the AFC title.

Betting on the Tennessee Titans (3-3)
The Titans laid a big fat egg in an embarrassing 21-10 home loss at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6. Obviously, Tennessee’s offense was ill in that game. The Titans were hoping prior to the season that their offense will take flight as they hired a new offensive coordinator in the up-and-coming Matt LaFleur, but whatever promise that personnel move gave Tennessee, it didn’t show up against Baltimore, as the team managed just 106 (!) total yards. The bigger problem could be their defense. The Titans let Baltimore to complete 12 of their its 17 third down attempts.
Tennessee is averaging 14.5 points and 262.7 total yards per game. On defense, they are third overall with 17.8 points per contest surrendered, so the Baltimore game could just be a case of the hiccups.
Tennessee is 3-2 ATS in its last five games.
Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers (4-2)
Unlike Tennessee, the Chargers had an easy time pounding the defense of their Week 6 opponents, as they blew the Cleveland Browns out on the road, 38-14. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers threw for just 207 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, but he did get ample help from running back Melvin Gordon. Gordon had a fantastic day in Cleveland, rushing for 132 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries. The former first-rounder could come up with another big game in Week 7, as he is about to face the Titans’ vulnerable run defense that ranks just 28th against the run with 123.2 rushing yards per game. Of course, the Chargers are more than just a team that heavily relies on its backfield.
The Chargers, who are 2-0 ATS in their last two games, are 13th in the league in passing yards with 275.2 per game and eighth in pass completions with a 68.72 percent success rate.
Los Angeles wins, 28-23.
