Expert Pick #1 – Tennessee Titans +2.5 @-110
Both teams have been enjoying good runs lately, and they hope to secure a win in this clash. The Titans go to this clash from a massive win over the Chiefs, they covered the number five times in the last six matches, and that trend might continue. Therefore, I’ll back the visitors ATS as my first pick.
Expert Pick #2 – Under 50.5 @-105
Although both sides have been involved in high-scoring matches lately, I’m leaning to the Under in this clash. The Colts had a shorter break to prepare for this clash, and we might see a tighter match on Sunday afternoon. Give me the Under as the second bet.
Expert Pick #3 – The Colts Under 25.5 @+100
I’m taking a bit higher odds here, expecting the visitors to hold the Indianapolis offense. The Titans were excellent in defense last weekend, and they might repeat a similar display. I don’t believe the Colts will score more than 25 points, and I’ll take that as my third pick.
