Titans game today: Titans vs. Steelers injury report, spread, over/under, schedule, live stream, TV channel
By Peter Panacy
The Titans visit the Steelers in Week 15, and Titan Sized brings you the latest betting odds, spread and injury updates, along with how you can tune in.
The top of the AFC playoff picture is getting awfully heated down the final stretch of the 2021 regular season, and if the Tennessee Titans want to get back in contention for the No. 1 seed and a first-round postseason bye, going on the road and beating the scuffling Pittsburgh Steelers has to be the No. 1 priority for head coach Mike Vrabel and Co.
Tennessee, currently slated at the No. 3 seed, is half a game behind the 10-4 top-seeded Kansas City Chiefs, who won their Week 15 matchup over the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday Night Football, yet Vrabel’s win over KC earlier this season could be a vital tiebreaker.
All that matters now, though, is pulling off a much-needed win over Pittsburgh.
The Steelers, losers of their Week 14 bout on Thursday Night Football, may benefit from home-field advantage and the mini bye week. But Tennessee is starting to get healthy again and can look to take advantage of the many deficiencies Pittsburgh has this late in the year.
Titans injury report vs. Steelers Week 15
The following players showed up on Tennessee’s Week 15 injury report versus the Steelers:
- FB Tory Carter (ankle)
- DB Dane Cruikshank (illness)
- CB Jackrabbit Jenkins (ankle)
- LB David Long, Jr. (hamstring)
- DL Larrell Murchison (knee)
- G Rodger Saffold III (shoulder)
- DT Teair Tart (ankle)
- LB Derick Roberson (illness)
EDGE Harold Landry being back surely helps the defense, as he recorded his 11th sack of the season in last week’s shutout win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
And it was good to see wide receiver Julio Jones back in the fray, too.
Titans vs. Steelers odds, spread, over/under & betting pick Week 15
Tennessee might have weathered the storm from before the bye week, a time when the injuries were picking up. Yet Pittsburgh, now in the 11th seed and currently out of the postseason picture, has to play some desperation football to get back into the hunt.
Perhaps that’s why the oddsmakers over at WynnBET list Week 15 as a pick-em game with no favorite, although home teams are almost always given three points on the betting line, meaning this would be a three-point Titans advantage if played at a neutral site.
That mini bye week from playing on Thursday night in Week 14 does aid the Steelers, though.
Both Pittsburgh and Tennessee’s moneyline is -110, while the over/under is 42.5.
The low-scoring probability of this game, combined with the Steelers having both home-field advantage and the additional few days of preparation lead us to predict an unfortunate Tennessee loss with Pittsburgh winning 24-21.
