Lions vs Titans Free Pick
Lions at Titans (TEN -10.5, 51.5)
The Titans got back on their feet after a few tough losses and the Lions are still more competitive now without Matt Patricia. The Titans are neck and neck in the South and need to keep up with Indy and this is a good matchup for them. Derrick Henry should feast against a Detroit defense that allows over 124 rushing yards and nearly 30 points a game. Tennessee’s defense isn’t much better allowing 25 points a game. The Titans are just 3-4 ATS at home this season.
Forget the spread, forget covering - I’m throwing that out the window for this game. The obvious bet here is going to be the OVER. These are two teams very capable of scoring points with two defenses that rank 21st or worse in total points allowed. Expect the Titans to run ground and pound here, Detroit is the 24th rush defense and Henry is averaging over 117 yards per game which is best in the league. What I think happens here is the Titans explode out of the gates and Matt Stafford gets creative against a pass defense that ranks 29th in the NFL. Both teams could easily get to 30 points a piece in this one.
Predictions: Lions 29 Titans 38
