The Titans look to stay hot against their AFC South rivals, the Colts in Week 8. Titan Sized breaks down the latest injury news, betting odds and how to watch.
In some ways, it’s a good thing the Tennessee Titans have an AFC South divisional rivalry game with the Indianapolis Colts to back up a three-game win streak that included statement wins over the conference-contending Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs the last two weeks.
If it weren’t for a divisional opponent, Week 8 could end up being one of those trap let-down games that could potentially put a dent in Tennessee’s hot streak.
Now at 5-2, head coach Mike Vrabel’s squad could put another key game in between itself and the 3-4 Colts, who are effectively the only other team within the AFC South who could potentially threaten a division crown this season.
And because it matters, Indy’s defense is surrendering just 4.2 yards per rush this season, which is 12th best in the league, making for an X-factor matchup against running back Derrick Henry something to watch during this showdown.
Titans injury report vs. Colts Week 8
The following players showed up on Tennessee’s Week 8 injury report:
- FB Khari Blasingame (knee)
- EDGE Bud Dupree (knee)
- DB Amani Hooker (groin)
- DB Chris Jackson (foot)
- WR Julio Jones (hamstring)
- WR Chester Rogers (groin)
- DT Teair Tart (groin)
- WR Josh Reynolds (illness)
- RB Darrynton Evans (knee)
- EDGE Harold Landry III (hamstring)
Jones potentially being absent could be a bit of a setback, given the fact Indianapolis is awfully shorthanded within its secondary, dealing with banged-up cornerbacks Rock Ya-Sin and Xavier Rhodes while also being without safety Julian Blackmon for the rest of the year because of an Achilles tear.
Titans vs. Colts odds, spread, over/under & betting pick Week 8
Perhaps the oddsmakers over at WynnBET are viewing this as a bit of a trap game for Tennessee anyway, listing the Colts as three-point favorites for their home contest. Usually, home teams are awarded three points for odds anyway, which prompts the idea this would be a pick-em game if played at a neutral site.
Interesting on that note.
Tennessee’s moneyline is +125, while Indy’s is -160. The over/under for this AFC South bout is 51.0.
The Colts may have a quality run defense, but a questionable secondary is perfect fodder for quarterback Ryan Tannehill to pick apart, prompting a gameday prediction that gives the road team the win, 27-21.
