Titans vs. Colts 2013 picks and predictions: Experts favor Indianapolis

Despite a close game the first time they played, most NFL experts are picking the Colts to make it 2-0 vs. Tennessee this season.

The Titans jumped out to a 17-3 lead against the Colts two weeks ago, only to have Indianapolis erase the lead in the second half and come away with a 30-27 win. The two teams will meet again this week -- this time in Indianapolis -- and most NFL experts are predicting a similar result.

It's a meaningful game for both teams, with the Titans currently tied for the final wild card spot and Indianapolis playing for the AFC South and still in contention for a first-round bye. SB Nation's six NFL experts have a strong lean towards Indianapolis with five of the six picking the Colts to improve to 8-4.

A Colts win would all but lock up the division title. They would need to win just one of their final four games to wrap up the NFC South and that's only if the Titans win their final four games.

The eight NFL experts from CBS Sports were more divided on the game, although they also favored the Colts. Five of the eight picked Indianapolis, including John Breech who predicted a 27-24 Indianapolis win. He wasn't the only one who picked the game to be close. When factoring in Indianapolis as 4.5-point betting favorites, all eight experts picked Tennessee.
