Indianapolis at Tennessee
Monday 10/16 08:30 PM Eastern
1 unit on Indianapolis +7 (-110) (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
The Tennessee Titans offense has suffered in the absence of Marcus Mariotta. It appears he will be back on the field tonight. However, a big part of his game is his threat and ability to run, and that might not be in his arsenol tonight. A bigger problem for Tennessee is how their defense has been exposed despite holding the worst offense in the league, Miami, to 16 points. Seattle and Houston both generated over 400 yards in the previous two contests. Indianapolis QB Jacoby Brissett is starting to look more and more comfortble with the Indy offense, and the Colts have moved the ball much better of late. Mariotta is just 11-19-1 ATS in his 31 career starts, 4-8 ATS as a favorite, and has never won as a favorite of -4 or more points (0-4 ATS). Tennessee is just 7-20 ATS in conference games in their last 27 and have not taken advantage of opportunities vs. poor opponents as they are an ugly 2-13 ATS in their last 15 vs. a losing team. Make the play on Indianapolis.
