Both the Colts and the Titans faced major question marks at quarterback heading into the regular season – and both have to be happy with how their situations have panned out as they prepare to square off Sunday in Nashville.

The Titans got 248 passing yards and three scores from embattled QB Marcus Mariota in a 43-13 thrashing of Cleveland last week, while Colts counterpart Jacoby Brissett looked solid in a 30-24 OT loss to the Chargers.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Oddsmakers have these teams on even terms, making the Titans a three-point favourite by virtue of having home-field advantage. And that could loom large in bettors’ eyes, with the favourite having covered in each of the previous five meetings between the teams. But more often than not, the Colts have had that honour – and they have a massive edge in the recent head-to-head, with 12 covers in the previous 15 encounters.

The total for the latest edition of the Colts-Titans rivalry is on the low end at 44.5, up slightly from an opening of 44. And there is a strong trend here, with the teams going above the number in each of their previous four meetings at Nissan Stadium; each of those games produced 50 or more points, most recently last year’s 33-17 Colts victory. The Titans are also riding a four-game consecutive over streak on their home turf.

Indianapolis Colts

While Brissett asserted himself well in his first start of the season (190 passing yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs), the real talk of the town was Marlon Mack. The veteran running back erupted for 174 rushing yards – the most of any player in Week 1 – and added a touchdown. T.Y. Hilton was also a star, hauling in eight passes for 87 yards and two scores; unfortunately for the Colts, no other player managed more than four catches or 35 receiving yards.

Tennessee Titans

Just about everything went right for Tennessee in its season opener against the Browns; Mariota looked every bit like a guy who plans to keep his starting job ahead of offseason acquisition Ryan Tannehill, while running back Derrick Henry piled up 159 total yards and two scores in the rout. Perhaps most impressively, the Titans’ defence hounded Cleveland QB Baker Mayfield, racking up five sacks and three timely interceptions.
