TNF - AFC SOUTH SHOWDOWN
Thursday, Nov. 12
Indianapolis at Tennessee -2.5 50.5 8:20 p.m.
Good TNF match up for control of the AFC South….
Both teams are trending down from what they’ve been good at all season.
Indy’s defense has underperformed the last four weeks allowing over 20 points to their opponents and managing only two wins. However, the Colts are still, along with the Big Horns, the only teams surrendering less than 300 YPG and under 5 YPP.
Titans faithful are wringing their hands because the human 18-Wheeler, AKA RB Derek Henry, has averaged less than 90 yards a game in the last three weeks. To be fair, two of those games were against Chicago and the Steelers, and both field excellent defenses.
TNF…Short week…Closely matched teams and coaches…
The QB advantage and the Titans porous defense make a close call easy…
Take Phillip Rivers—T.Y. Hilton returns this week. Rivers also knows his time is running out; if he wants a ring his Horseshoes better be more consistent, and dominant, starting tonight.
Take the 2.5 and Indy to win and Cover…Play the Over…
