The Tennessee Titans continue their pursuit of first-place in the AFC South this weekend, but will need to overcome the favored Atlanta Falcons.
The Tennessee Titans are still within striking distance of the AFC South lead after defeating the Carolina Panthers last Sunday. This weekend, though, the Titans hit the road to face the Atlanta Falcons.
According to Odds Shark, the Falcons opened as 6-1/2 point favorites over the Titans. The line has since moved up to seven points by two other odds makers while one reduced it to six points. Either way, odds makers are seeing plenty of action on the Falcons ahead of this weekend's matchup.
Both teams enter this contest at 5-4. The Falcons have been hurt by a leaky secondary, but the running game has been strong. Atlanta has the No. 4 rush defense in the league, which could hurt Titans running back Chris Johnson, who rushed for over 100 yards for just the second time this season last week.
The over/under for this game stands at 44 or 44-1/2 points and it appears to be spot-on, given the performances of both teams this season. Combined the two average just over 44 points per game for the year.
