Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Baltimore Ravens have stormed into the playoffs to find themselves facing a familiar foe. An enemy that has defeated them in the last two matchups, and who perhaps has their number. The Ravens have won five in a row and were 6-0 ATS to close out the regular season. However, the Titans are winners of five of their last seven, including a 30-24 OT win over the Ravens in Week 11.
Tennessee also stunned Baltimore 28-12 in last year’s Divisional Round, bouncing the favorite from the postseason. Both Titans victories had the same theme. RB Derrick Henry, the NFL’s rushing leader, ran all over the Ravens and bashed them into submission.
There is a psychological component to these losses, and I don’t believe that Baltimore has gotten past it yet. Ravens’ QB Lamar Jackson has only thrown north of 200 yards in one of his previous six starts, so don’t expect him to be gunslinging much on the Titans’ D.
Take the home dog with the head-to-head history on its side. Game of the week, right here. Titans 31, Ravens 30
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
We have good offensive teams here.
First, the Baltimore Ravens, who average 29.3 points per game (seventh best). Lamar Jackson threw for just 2,757 yards, but he ran for 1,005 yards and seven touchdowns.
J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards have been sensational from the backfield, while Mike Andrews remains as one of the best tight ends in the league.
The total has gone under in six of their last eight games against an opponent from the AFC South.
Derrick Henry finished the season with 2,027 rushing yards, and the Tennessee Titans finished fourth with 30.7 points per game.
Ryan Tannehill has become a reliable QB, while A.J. Brown has been sensational as their No. 1 receiver, nevertheless, Tannehill needs to spread the ball a little more in order to keep the opposing defense guessing.
The defense allows 27.4 points per game, they really need to get better, otherwise the offense would have to do all the work. The total has gone over in 11 of their last 14 games at home.
This is going to be a shootout; go over.
