New England at Tennessee
Saturday 08/17 07:00 PM Eastern
1 unit on Game Total UNDER 41 +100 (risk 1 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The defending champion New England has a ton of defensive depth again. They showcased it last week by holding the Lions to three points and 93 total yards. Detroit had just 21 yards passing and was 2-of-11 on third down. And there's no reason to risk the health of 42-year-old Tom Brady, so rookie QB Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer will get the most time. Tennessee's defense was much-improved under the new coaching staff in 2018, ranking eighth in yards allowed, third in points surrendered. Last week they held Philadelphia to 10 points and 227 total yards. The offense is a run-first attack, finishing #29 in the NFL in passing yards, #27 in points. Running the football chews up yards and the clock, keeping scoring opportunities down. In their last five preseason games, the Titans have averaged just 13.2 points per contest. Play this one to finish UNDER.
