The pre-season finale for a pair of 2018 playoff teams is upon us. The final question marks for Minnesota will be how many reps will Kirk Cousins see and who will hold the clipboard behind him? Meanwhile, for Tennessee this final exhibition tilt will be all about their defensive depth and new addition Kamalei Correa. The outside linebacker was picked up from Baltimore in exchange for a sixth-rounder on Tuesday.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Titans enter this game against a perennial Super Bowl contender favoured by -1. There’s a few reasons for this –  the Titans enter this tilt 4-0 ATS on grass in their last quatro and 5-1-1 ATS through their last seven.

While Minnesota has been decent this pre-season sitting at 2-1, they do have a bit of work ahead of them. They narrowly beat Seattle’s second-stringers last week 21-20 and lost to Jacksonville the week prior 14-10. Even so, oddsmakers had  the Vikes listed as 1-point underdogs on our NFL odds board before that line moved to Titans -1.

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings proudly named newcomer Kirk Cousins the most expensive QB in the game for a short period of time this summer. He inked a three-year deal worth $84 million dollars – all of which is guaranteed money.

Will he be worth the money? Probably. Maybe. We’ll see. Has he been worth the money thus far? Somewhat. It is just pre-season ball at the moment though.

With that said, while he does command a lot of the spotlight, the bigger question will be who will back him up – Trevor Siemian or Kyle Sloter? Both have made impressive cases and will get their final chance to strut their stuff in their pre-season finale on Thursday.

Tennessee Titans

With Jonathan Cyprien done for the year and rookie outside linebacking rookie Harold Landry in a walking boot after their Thursday nighter last week, questions closed in on head coach Mike Vrabel.

Luckily for him, all 32 teams heavily trimmed their rosters over the weekend, so a lot of available depth hit the market in droves. Watch for a lot of Titan hopefuls to hit the field on D and for newcomer Kamalei Correa to fight with his new playbook all night.
