Titans – Colts Odds TNF Week 10[metabet_core_game_tile query=”nfl/titans” site_id=”actionrush”]
The Colts are +2 against the Titans right now, but there are some books with the Titans at -1.5. This game is pretty much a toss-up at this point with Indy at +115 and Tennessee at -125 on the moneyline. The total is set to 48.5
The Titans are the home team in this game — which obviously means less in 2020 — but they are seeing a slight bump over the Colts for this reason. Keep an eye on this line. It’s gone as low as -1 and as high as -3 throughout the week.
Game Preview & Betting Angles
Here we go. This is the first time that the Titans and Colts will meet all season and the winner will have the inside track at winning the AFC South. The Colts are 5-3 and can pull into a virtual tie with the Titans with a win on Thursday. They would need to beat Tennessee again in two weeks in order to secure the tiebreaker in the event that both teams finish with the same record.
Thankfully, both teams are going to be relatively healthy for Thursday night’s game. Jadeveon Clowney has been a full participant for Titans in practice this week as has T.Y. Hilton for the Colts. That is rarely the case in these Thursday Night Football games.
Titans Game Notes
The Titans’ success starts and ends with Derrick Henry. The All-Pro running back is leading the NFL in carries and is averaging over 100 yards per game. Henry runs inside the tackles, he can bounce it outside, block the pass rush, and even catch some balls out of the backfield. Simply put, the man can do it all.
Henry will be motivated to put his best foot forward on Thursday after a lackluster performance against the Chicago Bears in Week 9. He was held to just 68 yards on 3.24 yards per carry and couldn’t find the endzone. This isn’t the norm for Henry. In Week 6 against the Houston Texans, he racked up 264 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns.
Colts Game Notes
If the Colts are going to have any chance of beating the Titans, they’ll need to neutralize Henry. Fortunately for Colts backers, that is this defense’s bread and butter. Indianapolis is third in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game (83.6), third in points allowed (20.0), and first in total yards allowed (290.0).
This will be a game of strength vs. strength.
On the other side, the Colts are trusting the offense to Philip Rivers. The veteran quarterback doesn’t have the arm that he used to, but he’s still capable of guiding an offense to success. After all, their defense is good enough to keep them in most games. When Rivers takes care of the football, Indianapolis usually wins. The Colts are 1-3 when Rivers throws an interception and 4-0 when he does not.
In terms of betting trends, the Colts are right down the middle. They are 4-4 against the spread and 4-4 on over-unders this season. The Titans, on the other hand, are 3-5 against the spread and 5-2-1 on over-unders.

Betting Picks & Score Prediction
Thursday Night Football games are always tough to forecast, so we’re going to put our faith in Derrick Henry. We expect to see the All-Pro bounce back and give his team a commanding lead in the AFC South. If he can post big numbers and beat the Colts’ staunch run defense, the Titans will come away with a big win.
Take the Titans laying the points. This could be a stepping stone for Tennessee in their quest for a Super Bowl title.
