The Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders meet Sunday in week 14 NFL action at RingCentral Coliseum.
The Tennessee Titans look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Tennessee Titans have split their last six road games. Ryan Tannehill is completing 72.7 percent of his passes for 1,602 yards, 12 touchdowns and four interceptions. Tannehill and Marcus Mariota have combined for 19 touchdowns and six interceptions. A.J. Brown and Corey Davis have combined for 1,052 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Adam Humphries has 37 receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 125.4 yards per contest, and Derrick Henry leads the way with 1,140 yards and 11 touchdowns. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 19.5 points and 362.1 yards per game. Rashaan Evans leads the Tennessee Titans with 87 tackles, Harold Landry III has nine sacks and Kevin Byard has four interceptions.
The Oakland Raiders need a win here to get a game above a .500 record and stay in the playoff race. The Oakland Raiders have won their last three home games. Derek Carr is completing 70.6 percent of his passes for 2,843 yards, 16 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Carr has one or less touchdown passes in 11 of his last 18 games. Darren Waller and Tyrell Williams have combined for 1,296 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Hunter Renfrow has 36 receptions. The Oakland Raiders ground game is averaging 122.7 yards per contest, and Josh Jacobs leads the way with 1,061 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Oakland is allowing 27 points and 361.8 yards per game. Tahir Whitehead leads the Oakland Raiders with 81 tackles, Maxx Crosby has 7.5 sacks and Erik Harris has three interceptions.
The Titans are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite, 24-50-5 ATS in their last 79 vs. AFC and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Raiders are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a home underdog, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up loss and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games. The over is 6-0 in Titans last 6 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Raiders last 7 games as an underdog. The Titans are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings. The favorite is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 meetings. The road team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
We've made a lot of money on the Tennessee Titans this season and they're quietly one of the hotter teams in the league. The question is how long can Tannehill and company keep this up? We've seen him show flashes and win games in Miami, and there's a point where it comes to an end and the real Tannehill appears. The Oakland Raiders haven't looked good the last two weeks, but they're back at home where they've won three straight and their playoff hopes are on the line here. This feels like a good spot to back the underdog Raiders with everybody jumping off the train.
