What are the best bets to make on Week 3’s matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts?
The Tennessee Titans haven’t quite righted the ship yet. However after a disastrous beginning to their season in Week 1 versus the Arizona Cardinals, a win versus the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2 feels phenomenal, and no one cares how that win came.
A 1-1 record after two weeks means the Tennessee Titans sit alone atop the AFC South, and a win versus the Indianapolis Colts does two things for this football team. The Colts would fall to 0-3 on the season, and the head-to-head loss versus this Tennessee squad, in essence, would be as close as the Titans would be able to come to winning twice by only appearing in a single game.
That gives new meaning to the term ‘win-win’. Here are the best bets for Tennessee heading into Week 3.
Best Tennessee Titans bets for Week 3
Bet No. 1
- Anytime TD Scorer & Team To Win (Derrick Henry and Tennessee Titans) +460
The Tennessee Titans found something that worked during the second half of Week 2’s game versus the Seattle Seahawks. If the offense gets the ball into the hands of Derrick Henry, the best running back on Planet Earth, good things tend to happen.
While theories about preserving Derrick Henry are understandable, the double-edged sword here is it’s hard to support any game plan that doesn’t get him the ball as often as possible. The King touched the ball 41 times in Week 2. Expect the Titans to keep the ball in his hands to control the clock versus a Colts team that knows how to score seeing as how Tennessee’s defense can’t be trusted.
If the Titans find their way into the red zone, a heavy dose of Derrick Henry is to be expected. Tennessee will ride that game plan to victory.
Bet No. 2
- A.J. Brown Anytime TD Scorer -110
Following a four-catch performance that earned him his first touchdown grab of this young 2021-2022 NFL season and being one of the lone reasons to be happy about this Tennessee Titans team in Week 1, A.J. Brown was kidnapped and held for ransom in Week 2.
That’s the story we’re sticking with. There’s no way that guy that showed up in Seattle for the Titans’ second game was the A.J. Brown that we’ve gotten to know over the course of the 2019 and 2020 NFL seasons.
The good news is, from what we hear, A.J. has been located and brought home. One might imagine that he’s looking for redemption, and a Colts team that forgets to play defense sometimes looks like a nice squad that he can get some target practice against.
With that being said, wagering a few dollars on the possibility of Brown getting into the end zone at some point of this one sounds like a pretty good idea if you’re interested.
