- The Tennessee Titans are 1.5-point favorites with -125 odds on the moneyline against the Indianapolis Colts.
- The Colts come back as a +105 betting underdog in their second meeting against Tennessee.
INDIANAPOLIS – The Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts will take part in an AFC South matchup on Sunday as the top teams in the division.
Game Lines Show Closer Outcome Than Expected
The Tennessee Titans are on a roll at the moment with back-to-back wins over the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills and are just narrowly favored over the Indianapolis Colts on football betting sites.
Titans vs Colts Spread Odds
- Tennessee Titans -1.5 -105
- Indianapolis Colts +1.5 -115
Not only is the game line closer than most people would expect, but the sportsbooks themselves are indicating the underdog might win outright. The Titans have a -0.5 advantage on each quarter’s spread but are underdogs to cover the line in every quarter.
A team not favored to win a single quarter being the favorite in the game is weird, but maybe telling on how the game will play out. Those betting on the NFL should note that back in July the Colts were favored by 3.5 points.
Even as recently as Monday, Indianapolis was favored in this meeting.
Sportsbooks likely started to get too much liability on Tennessee and were forced to make them the favorites, but there’s a lot of indications that the belief of the book is that Indianapolis will win.
Titans vs Colts Moneyline Odds
- Tennessee Titans -125
- Indianapolis Colts +105
Can Bettors Confidently Bet On Titans?
The Titans already beat the Colts once this season by a score of 25-16, but did so on their home turf. In their first meeting, Derrick Henry had 144 all-purpose yards and stopping him from repeating that performance will likely be Indianapolis’ top concern.
The Colts defense is middle of the pack in terms of rushing defense with an average of 111.0 rushing yards allowed per game. Carson Wentz will likely need to shoulder the load for the Colts as the Titans’ pass defense is the weakness of the team, allowing the ninth-most passing yards per game (273.6).
At the end of the day, there’s nothing that strongly points in either direction in terms of matchups, but even ESPN’s Football Power Index gives Indianapolis a 53.5% chance of winning the game.
CBS will have coverage of the game on Sunday starting at 1 p.m. EST.
