NFL Betting Preview Titans vs. Rams

In Week nine of NFL action, the Tennessee Titans (6-2) head to Los Angeles for a prime-time matchup against the Rams at SoFi Stadium. The Titans lead the AFC South after defeating the Colts in overtime 34-31. Similarly, the Rams still hold onto first in the NFC West after downing the Texans 38–22. 

Both teams are coming off wins, and all eyes will be on this matchup Sunday night for what could be a Super Bowl preview. Let’s size up both teams and see how they stack up against each other. 

Tennessee Titans Betting Preview: Titans to Play Without Henry

The Titans have rattled off four straight wins and find themselves in first place in their division. Be that as it may, the Titans got hit hard with the news that their best player Derrick Henry will be out indefinitely with an ankle injury. This is devastating news as Henry leads the team and the league in rushing. 

The offense runs through Henry, and it will be interesting to see how the Titans navigate without him. Last time out, the offense struggled to get going early, falling behind 14-0. However, Ryan Tannehill and A.J. Brown carved the Colts’ secondary, connecting ten times for 155 yards and a long 57-yard touchdown. 

The defense hasn’t been as stellar as the offense allowing 24.4 points per game, but they are starting to play better as a unit. The secondary needs the most work, with the defense conceding 267.4 yards per game. Although the Titans failed to bring a ton of pressure on Carson Wentz, they got a huge interception from Elijah Molden, who returned it for six. The defense has 11 takeaways, including seven interceptions, and needs more of that against a high-powered Rams offense. 

Los Angeles Rams Betting Preview: Rams Add All-Pro Von Miller 

Sean McVay has the Rams rolling on both sides of the ball and are the biggest threat in the NFC. LA comes into this matchup red hot, having won their last four games and outscoring their outscoring their opponents by 61 points. 

The offense is one of the best units in the league, with Matthew Stafford leading the charge. Against the Texans, Stafford tossed three touchdowns and 305 passing yards while throwing 3+ touchdowns in his last three games. Cooper Kupp has been arguably the best receiver in the league, ranking first in touchdowns (10) and yards (924). Darrell Henderson adds another huge dynamic at running back, recording his fifth touchdown of the year. 

On the defensive side of the ball, the Rams own one of the stiffest defenses in the league. The defensive unit leads the entire league in sacks (25) despite only blitzing on 23% of their plays. To make matters worse for opponents, they added all-pro linebacker Von Miller at the trade deadline. Moreover, the defense is only giving up 21 points a game and should be harassing Ryan Tannehill all night.

This is a no-brainer for me. The Rams are on a roll and are the much better team. The Titans got struck with the injury bug hard, and I don’t think they can recover fast enough.

The Rams offense should run through Tennessee and they are a weak secondary. The offense has put up 104 points over their last three games, and this should be another high-scoring affair. I think the crowd will be all over Tennessee, and they won’t have a chance. Rams blowout Titans.
