Ride with Receivers
Tennessee at Philadelphia is one of the best games on the Week 13 slate. It’s not surprising the sportsbook lists the Eagles as spread and moneyline favorites, -4½ and -225, respectively.
Titans vs Eagles Props
- Miles Sanders Total Rushing Yards, O/U 61½
- Treylon Burks Total Receiving Yards, O/U 45½
- A.J. Brown Total Receiving Yards, O/U 75½
Sanders Total Rushing Yards, O/U 61½
With the Eagles’ run game coming off a 363-rush-yards effort against the Packers, Miles Sanders had a 96-yard outing (average of over seven yards per carry). However, it’ll be tough sledding on the ground against the Titans, who rank third in stopping backs.
Tennessee hangs its hat on toughness, starting with coach Mike Vrabel. The Titans know they’re facing the league’s best offensive line, and will be ready. Philadelphia will likely throw more often against a stingy run defense. Sanders fails to hit his projected rushing yards total.

Burks Total Receiving Yards, O/U 46½
Tennessee’s passing game isn’t stellar, 29th in yards per game. The loss of star wideout A.J. Brown-who will be this week’s opponent-has hurt Tennessee. Tennessee selected Treylon Burks in this past draft, hoping he could be quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s next target.
A slow start, but since returning mid-November after injury, Burks is hitting his stride. Over the last two games, the former Arkansas product has reeled in two catches of over 50 yards, averaging 16½ yards per catch. Philly surrendered 110 yards to the Green Bay Packers’ deep threat, Christian Watson, in Week 12. Thus, after back-to-back games with at least 70 yards, Burks will keep it going.
A.J. Brown Total Receiving Yards, O/U 75½
Playing “on paper,” Brown is in store for a huge Sunday afternoon. Tennessee may be formidable against the run, but 31st (next-to-last) against the pass. Take last week, when the Titans watched Cincinnati compile 270 passing yards. Tennessee struggled to defend Cincinnati’s top wideout Tee Higgins, who had 114 yards.
Let’s not forget about the revenge factor at work. Brown will be facing the team that traded him, and that matters. There will be extra motivation in this one.
