The Tennessee Titans will be aiming to rebound from a crushing 38-13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1 when they travel to Seattle to battle the surging Seahawks on Sunday afternoon as 5.5-point road underdogs. Seattle opened the schedule in decisive fashion, knocking off the Indianapolis Colts 28-16 as 3-point road chalk, and has suffered just one regular season defeat on home turf since the start of the 2020 campaign.

The point spread for this Week 2 clash at Lumen Field has steadily moved in Seattle’s favour since the Seahawks opened as 3.5-point chalk. But while over 80% bets have laid on the OVER, the total has managed to remain steady since opening at 52.5.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Sunday’s matchup marks the Titans’ first visit to Seattle since October 2013. Tennessee escaped with a 33-27 win as 2-point home chalk in their last meeting four years ago at Nissan Stadium. However, the Titans have traditionally struggled when facing the Seahawks on the road, posting just one win in eight visits since 1977, a 17-13 victory as 6-point underdogs 11 years ago. Despite that dismal record, the Titans have generated steady returns at the sportsbooks when facing Seattle, covering the spread in five of their past six matchups, including a current 3-0 run against the spread on the road.

Points have come at a premium for the Titans in recent visits to Seattle. Tennessee has averaged just 14.5 points per game in its past four road clashes with the Seahawks. That has contributed to a steady 6-2 run for the UNDER in totals betting when these two teams meet.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans opened their schedule amid high expectations after marching to the top of the AFC South standings last season for the first time since 2008. The team fell flat in their Week 1 date with the visiting Cardinals, spotting Arizona a 24-6 halftime lead on their way to a 38-13 loss. Overall, the Titans have now posted straight up wins in just six of 13 overall contests since opening last season on a torrid 5-0 run.

Of particular fans to loyal Titans sports bettors are the tepid performances last week from quarterback Ryan Tannehill and rusher Derrick Henry. After getting sidelined by COVID-19 during the preseason, Tannehill failed to produce instant chemistry with new receiver Julio Jones, connecting on just 21 of 35 pass attempts on the day, with Jones amassing just 29 receiving yards. Henry also failed to break out, tallying just 58 rushing yards on 17 carries.

Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks opened their season on a much more positive note. Tyler Lockett needed just four catches to rack up 100 receiving yards and two scores, while rusher Chris Carson scampered for a game-high 91 yards. Of course, quarterback Russell Wilson proved to be the key catalyst while tossing for four touchdowns to seal the victory for the Seahawks, who have now won seven of eight overall in regular season action, and surrendered just 12.5 points per game during a 3-1 straight up run on home turf. Look for the Seahawks to extend the Titans’ woes this weekend by winning and covering.
