NFL Betting – Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans Week 8 Battle to go Down to the Wire
Written by North Shore Sports, INC
AFC South rivals are set to collide at Bookmaker Sportsbook when the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans square off against the NFL betting lines in Week 8 action.
The Tennessee Titans (3-3, 2-4 ATS) will look to snap a two-game NFL betting losing streak in Week 8 when they host the Indianapolis Colts (0-7, 2-5 ATS) at LP Field on Sunday, October 30th, 2011; the live kick-off is set to go at 1:00 ET on CBS.
NFL Betting Lines
Indianapolis Colts (+9) -110
Tennessee Titans (-9) -110
And the hits just keep on coming for the Colts who hit a season low last week at New Orleans where the Saints dropped 62 points on them en route to the decisive 55 point home win and cover. The seven point output put forth by the Colts matched a season low in points scored from back in Week 1 when they lost to the division rival Texans in Houston. Since being competitive in a 24-17 NFL betting win at Tampa Bay (+10), Indianapolis has dropped three straight including the first two on their current three-game road trip.
Along with having an injury list a mile long headlined by the absence of QB Peyton Manning, the Colts rank out terribly on both sides of the ball. The 280 YPG gained by the QB Curtis Painter led offense is ranked 30th in the league, while their paltry 15.9 PPG average is good for 29th. On the defensive side of the ball, the Colts have been miserable giving up 32.1 PPG (#32) as well as 416 total YPG (#30). The fact that they’re (-5) in turnover margin only adds insult to injury.
The Titans got out to a decent start to their 2011-12 campaign winning three of four which included a 26-13 pummeling of the Baltimore Ravens as six-point underdogs in Week 2. They then went on to drop each of their next two games with a bye sandwiched in between. The 38-17 loss they incurred at Pittsburgh was the first of back-to-back blowouts for their opponents, as the division rival Houston Texans went into Nashville last week and handed the hosts a humiliating 41-7 defeat as three-point NFL betting line favorites.
QB Matt Hasselbeck has settled in nicely as the Titz field general throwing for just over 1500 yards to go along with 10 TD passes. With absolutely no semblance of a running game, look for him to look to the air against the Colts as the Titans possess the league’s 12th ranked passing attack (242.8 YPG) even without the services of WR Kenny Britt. Defensively, Tennessee is only giving up an average of 22.5 PPG (#16), but its lack of a pass rush (11 sacks) could come back to bite it in passing situations against Indianapolis’ front wall that has only allowed 12 total sacks.
NFL Betting Prediction – Both of these teams found themselves on the wrong end of woodshed beatings last week – The Colts on the road and the Titans at home. With that the case, both will surely want to make amends and put forth much better efforts in Week 8. Tennessee has failed in the chalk role each of the three times it was favored this season, and it hasn’t proved it should be favored over anyone by this margin just yet. With the Titans 1-4 their L/5 as a home chalk and 0-4 ATS their L/4 as a favorite in the 3.5-10 point range, look for Indy to step up on the final leg of their three-game road trip and earn their backers a solid cover!
