The Tennessee Titans (+3000 to win the AFC title) have been rejuvenated with the insertion of Ryan Tannehill into the starting lineup, but they can’t let up, as they need to win more games to keep the Houston Texans on their toes atop the AFC South. As for the Oakland Raiders (+8000), they are looking to get back in the win column to keep their dimming playoff hopes alive.
Betting Preview for the Tennessee Titans vs Oakland Raiders NFL Regular Season Week 14 Game on December 8, 2019
Where: RingCentral Coliseum, Oakland
When: Sunday, December 8, 2019, 4:25 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (7-5)
The Ryan Tannehill Experience is still going well for the Titans – except maybe for Marcus Mariota (remember him?). In their last outing, Tannehill went 17 for 22 for 182 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns with zero interceptions in a 31-17 toad win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 14. The Titans’ pass protection was never going to get a plus-grade though after letting Tannehill get sacked six times for a loss of 44 yards. That said, the Titans will face a weaker pass rush on Sunday, as Oakland is in the bottom half of the NFL this season in terms of sacks. Apart from Tannehill, the Titans will be relying on two of their most successful weapons of late: running back Derrick Henry and their defense. Henry was a one-man wrecking crew against the Colts, as he rushed for 149 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries. The Titans’ defense, on the other hand, smothered Indianapolis, which committed three turnovers and had one of its field-goal attempts blocked and returned for a touchdown by Tennessee. The Raiders are catching Tennessee at a bad time.
The Titans are 3-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last three games.
Betting on the Oakland Raiders (6-6)
If you think the Raiders are in trouble, knock on wood. The Raiders suffered a back-breaking 40-9 loss on the road to the Kansas City Chiefs last Sunday. A win would have tied the Raiders with the Raiders atop the AFC West. However, all is not lost for Oakland, which is putting up 19.8 points per game while giving up 27.0 per contest. Derek Carr was bottled up by the Chiefs, as he passed for 222 yards and a touchdown with a pair of interceptions on 20-of-30 completions. The Chiefs were not able to slow down Josh Jacobs, though, as he rushed for 104 yards on 17 carries or 6.1 yards per carry. The Raiders have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL and that should work to their advantage in Week 14. The Raiders have allowed the second-fewest quarterback takedowns on the season with just 18.
The under is 3-0 in the Raiders’ last three games.
The Raiders win, 23-21.
