I love the Titans’ chances to upset Indianapolis in Week 4, and there are a few reasons you should be optimistic as well. One of the first is you have a free $1,000 bet from BetMGM to use this week, which makes this upset pick even easier to make.

We won’t need those free bets, though – we’re going to win. Here’s why Tennessee will upset Indy this Sunday:

3 Reasons the Titans Will Upset the Colts

King Henry is Back On His Throne

It took a few weeks for Derrick Henry to get rolling, but rest assured, the King is BACK.

Henry finished with over 140 total yards and a TD against the Raiders, and he should be in line for another big game against the Colts’ depleted defensive front. If Henry can out-duel Jonathan Taylor, the Titans will be in great shape.

The Colts Aren’t Good

Beating the Chiefs is an impressive feat, but Indianapolis managed to accomplish that goal while simultaneously getting outplayed the entire game. The Colts benefitted from a series of uncharacteristic mistakes from Kansas City, and still had fewer total yards (259 to 315) and a much worse yards per play mark (3.8 to 5.2).

At this point, Derek Carr is better than Matt Ryan. Davante Adams is certainly better than Michael Pittman, too. Tennessee’s defense fared well against Las Vegas and it’ll fare well once again in Indianapolis.

Betting Trends

The Titans are darn good as underdogs. They’re 9-4 outright in their last 13 as ‘dogs, and Mike Vrabel is an expert at rallying his roster to exceed expectations.

Indianapolis, on the other hand, is 0-3-1 in its last four games as a favorite. The Colts are a pathetic 4-8 against the spread in their last dozen games as home favorites. I’m expecting a let-down after a big win in their home opener over Kansas City.

If you’re with me and love the value on Tennessee as underdogs, just be sure to claim your $1,000 free bet from BetMGM before it’s too late. That $1,000 risk-free bet would profit $1,450 if the Titans win, so sign up for BetMGM now to secure your share.
