The AFC South has suddenly become one of the most exciting divisions in football. Three teams have exciting young quarterbacks and one, the Tennessee Titans, still have Derrick Henry. This week against the Indianapolis Colts, the run-game will be key for both sides.
The only problem is that both defenses are equipped to stop the run-game. This could be a low-scoring slugfest and my three prop bets for this week reflect that.

Titans vs. Colts best prop bets
- Nick Folk OVER 1.5 total field goals
- Derrick Henry OVER 18.5 rushing attempts
- Anthony Richardson UNDER 47.5 rushing yards
Nick Folk OVER 1.5 total field goals
Nearly 40% of the Tennessee offensive production comes from the running-game which is a very high number. The Titans are effective at running the ball, but it’ll be tough sledding against the Colts. Indy is ninth in the NFL allowing just 3.8 yards per rush. That will make it tough for the Titans to fully capitalize on their drives.
The Titans are also fifth in field goals made this season, so the team is more than comfortable taking three points.
Derrick Henry OVER 18.5 rushing attempts
The Colts may be good at stopping the run, but that won’t stop the Titans from trying. Last week, Henry went for 122 yards on 22 carries and this season the Titans average 26.0 rushing attempts per game. The Indy defense has actually faced the third most rushing attempts.
Anthony Richardson UNDER 47.5 rushing yards
Richarson is a dual-threat quarterback, but he would still rather be a passer than a runner. That was clear at Florida last season and is still true in Indy. Richardson is second on the team in rushing attempts and rushing yards, but he only averages 43.7 rushing yards per game and is now facing the No. 1 defense in yards per rush. The Titans only allow 2.9 yards per carry, so I'll fade Richardson in this market.
