Baltimore at Tennessee

1.5 units on Tennessee -3.5 (-105) (risk 1.5 to return 2.93) RESULT: LOSS
The Tennessee Titans are an improved team, and at 4-3 they are certainly a team that has playoff aspirations. They are the healthiest team in the NFL right now with no players listed on the injury report. QB Marcus Mariota is much healthier after injuring his hamstring, and he should start using his legs as well as his arm going forward. The Titans offense will improve with his run dimension back, but under the radar is the return of the Titan's first round draft pick WR Corey Davis. Davis went down with an injury early in Week 2, but was targeted by Mariota 13 times prior to the injury. Baltimore is suffering from myriad of injuries, including Joe Flacco, who just got out of concussion protocol. Flacco has diminished as a QB over the past few seasons, and the numbers this year are not very appealing as he enters with a passer rating of 72.3 and has thrown more picks (eight), than TDs (six). His 5.4 yards per attempt are extremely low, and the worst of his career, and his career 68.4 passer rating vs. Tennessee does not bode well here either. Make the play on Tennessee.
