The battle for the top of the AFC South standings heats up on Sunday as the Tennessee Titans visit the Indianapolis Colts. Tennessee has seized sole possession of first place while posting three straight wins, capped by last week’s 27-3 demolition of the Kansas City Chiefs. The Colts have managed to keep pace with the Titans during a 3-1 run that comes on the heels of a woeful 0-3 start. Indianapolis has regularly rewarded sports bettors during their current surge, covering the spread in each of their past four contests.

The Titans travel to Lucas Oil Stadium pegged as slender 1-point underdogs on the NFL odds board. However, that marks a dramatic improvement for Tennessee, which has attracted 85 per cent of bets laid since opening as a 2.5-point underdog. There has also been plenty of movement on the total, which has steadily climbed to 51 since opening at just 49.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Sunday’s matchup marks the second meeting of the season between these divisional rivals. Tennessee romped to a 25-16 victory as 6-point home chalk back in Week 3, marking their third win in four dates with the Colts. The Titans have been particularly dominant in recent visits to Indianapolis, posting lopsided wins in their past two, capped by a crushing 45-26 rout as 3-point underdogs in November of last year. While the OVER holds the edge when these teams meet, going 5-2 in their past seven clashes, low scoring has remained a theme, with the total topping 50 just twice in their past eight matchups. Road teams have also enjoyed steady success, posting wins in five of the past six clashes.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans have emerged as giant slayers during their rise to the top of the AFC South standings. Prior to last week’s rout of the Chiefs, Tennessee also handed the high-powered Buffalo Bills a stunning 34-31 defeat and has now averaged almost 33 points per game during a 3-0 run. Once again, it is rusher Derrick Henry sparking the Titans’ attack, scampering for 124.1 yards per game and 10 scoring runs, both league bests. However, it was a ferocious defensive effort that made the difference against Kansas City, which compiled just 52 total yards while watching the Titans power to a 27-0 halftime lead.

Indianapolis Colts

After enduring a brutal 0-3 start, the Colts have turned things around with decisive wins in three of four outings, capped by a 30-18 victory in San Francisco last weekend on Sunday Night Football. Quarterback Carson Wentz has fulfilled the promise during the team’s recent surge. Wentz has connected on multiple scoring passes in four straight outings, and added a scoring run in last weekend’s win over the 49ers. The Colts have also enormously benefited from Jonathan Taylor’s breakthrough performance. The second-year running back has rushed for an average of 102 yards and tallied five total scoring runs over the past four games. However, Taylor has been limited in practice this week while nursing a rib injury, adding to a long list of injury concerns that have sidelined receiver TY Hilton, safety Julian Blackmon, and cornerbacks Xavier Rhodes and BoPete Keyes.
