- The Tennessee Titans are somewhere between 2.5- and 3.5-point underdogs against the Indianapolis Colts.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Tennessee Titans are fresh off of a ruthless beatdown of the Kansas City Chiefs, so why are they underdogs against the Indianapolis Colts?
Many sportsbooks opened on Monday with the Titans favored slightly (-1 or -1.5) against the Colts.
Tennessee Titans Vs. Indianapolis Colts Spread Odds
- Tennessee Titans +2.5 (-110)
- Indianapolis Colts -2.5 (-110)
Now, almost every sportsbook seems to have reached a consensus - the Titans are no longer favored, and are instead road underdogs against an Indianapolis Colts team that has a stellar 5-2 record against the spread.
In fact, Titans +2.5 is not even the most anti-Titans line out there - multiple NFL sportsbooks have the game at Titans +3.5.
However, the Titans have been surprising the sportsbooks this year - they also have a 5-2 record against the spread.
Titans Vs. Colts Betting Information
The Titans and the Colts have already played once this season, with the Titans winning comfortably at home, 25-16.
Since that time, however, the Colts have been remarkably competitive, playing a close game against the Baltimore Ravens, handily defeating the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans, and upsetting the San Francisco 49ers, who were favored by four points.
They covered the spread in all four of those games, and are looking to extend their ATS win streak to five by covering this one against the Titans.
The Titans have finally started to look like the team they were expected to be, after injuries to Julio Jones and A.J. Brown derailed what could have been a hot start. They entered the season as the favorites to win this division, and they remain so, with -550 odds to win the AFC South.
Brown had his best game of the season in Week 7 against the Chiefs, putting up 133 receiving yards. He had his second-best game of the season the week before, against the Buffalo Bills, logging 91 receiving yards.
Jones has been spotty, with limited usage in the passing game as Derrick Henry and Brown siphon off many offensive possessions. He hasn’t seen more than five targets since Week 2, and he’s only exceeded three receptions once this season.
Jones, however, will be out on Sunday, but this news broke when the Titans were already +3.5 on some sportsbooks, and does not seem to explain the drop
Titans Vs. Colts Head To Head Betting
The favorite has covered the spread in eight out of the last 10 times these two teams have faced off against each other. The Titans have rarely been that favorite - they’re 6-14 against the spread in their last 20 games against the Colts.
Interestingly, they’re 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games against the Colts in Indianapolis, so there doesn’t seem to be a significant home/road impact on whether the Titans cover the spread.
