Game Preview and Betting Angles
The Titans might be the home team, but oddsmakers have the Ravens pegged as the favorite in this one. It makes sense considering the fact that the Ravens are on a five-game winning streak. The Titans have won three of their last four, but they looked shaky against the Houston Texans in Week 17. Let’s take a deeper dive into this matchup.
The Titans go big on offense. They rank third in the NFL in total offense (396.4 yards per game), second in rushing offense (168.1 yards per game), and fourth in scoring (30.7 points per game).
Of course, they are led by Derrick Henry who joined the 2,000-yard club after rushing for 250 yards in Week 17. Henry led the NFL with 2,027 rushing yards, 17 rushing touchdowns, and 126.7 rush yards per game. This is the second consecutive year that Henry led the NFL in all three categories. If the Ravens are going to have any chance of beating the Titans, they are going to need to shut down Henry first and foremost.
Defensively, the Titans took a step back this year. They are 24th in the NFL in scoring defense (27.4 points per game) and 28th in total offense (398.3 yards per game).
However, they make up for some of their defensive struggles by generating turnovers and taking care of the football. They finished the year first in turnover differential (+11). Quarterback Ryan Tannehill isn’t always going to take the top off the defense, but he doesn’t give away opportunities.
The gameplan is simple for Tennessee. Pound the rock with Henry and capitalize on turnovers.
There’s only one team in the NFL that rushes the ball better than Tennessee — the Baltimore Ravens — but they do things a little differently than Tennessee. The Ravens are led by quarterback Lamar Jackson on the ground and they are averaging almost 200 yards per game on the ground. In fact, they gain more on the ground than they do through the air.
For the second consecutive season, Jackson led the NFL in rush yards per carry (6.3) and rushed for over 1,000 yards. J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards benefit from defenses loading up to stop Jackson. Dobbins and Edwards rushed for 805 and 723 yards this season, respectively.
On defense, the Ravens are among the best in the NFL. They rank seventh in total defense (329.8 yards per game), eighth in rushing defense (108.8 yards per game), and second in scoring (18.9 points per game).
Although the Titans are tops in the NFL in turnover differential, the Ravens are sporting a positive number too. They are +4 on the season and have recovered 12 fumbles so far this year.
We expect to see a ton of rushes from both these teams this weekend.

Prediction: Titans Pull Off The Upset Again
Last year’s Titans win over the Ravens in the playoffs came as a complete shock. This year, if they were to beat Baltimore, it won’t be as big of a surprise, but it’s still going to be an upset. Look for Henry to control the game on the ground and capitalize on turnovers by the Ravens. This should be a high-scoring game despite the fact that both teams love to rush the ball. Take the Titans moneyline.
