Betting with Bastl: Payback Time for the Titans?

In the last three games in Indianapolis dating back to the 2017 season, the Titans have walked away with two outright wins.

I love how the Titans responded in their game with the Ravens last week. Tennessee entered the game as underdogs on the road, against a playoff contender, and battled back to edge out an overtime outright win. Derrick Henry, as he usually is, was the factor in that game rushing for 133 yards on 28 carries. I expect him to be the factor in this contest as well.

The Titans are in a similar spot this week against the Colts. They are underdogs once again, on the road against a team that is playoff worthy, and owners the league’s number two defence.

Two weeks ago, in Music City, the Colts had their way with the Titans to the tune of 34-17. I suspect that will not be forgotten inside the Titans dressing room. In that loss, Henry still managed 103 yards rushing, but the story was Ryan Tannehill’s inability to get the ball down the field. Tannehill’s 147-yard effort in week 10 was his worst outing of the season.

NFL Week 12 Betting Two-Minute Drill

It’s a two-team battle for first place in the AFC South, and these two teams are the contenders. The Titans and Colts enter week 12 with identical 7-3 records, with the Titans 3-1 on the road and the Colts 4-1 at home.

In this head-to-head series, the road team has been dominating as of late with a 4-0 record against the spread.

The Titans have had their trouble with the Colts overall, with a 2-7 ATS record in Indianapolis. However, in the last three games in Indy dating back to the 2017 season, the Titans have walked away with two outright wins.

Bastl’s Bet: Titans +3.5

Overtime Predictions:

I wouldn’t want to be the Bears on Sunday night football. First off, they have lost four straight games, after starting the season 5-1. Head Coach Matt Nagy isn’t certain which Quarterback will start or be healthy enough to start. Finally, there’s the Aaron Rodgers factor. Rodgers was clearly ticked off at the team’s finish in an overtime loss last weekend in Indianapolis. Would you want to face Rodgers in a bad mood?

Short week for the Rams coming off a Monday night win in Tampa Bay. The Niners are hopeful that some of their key players are slowly on the mend as they enjoyed a bye week last week. However, this will not be the same 49ers roster that beat the Rams 24-16 back on October 24.

Bastl’s Bet: Packers -7.5, Rams -7
