Colts vs Titans Betting Prediction

Indianapolis comes into this matchup on a three game winning streak, but they have beaten Tampa Bay, New England, and Carolina, who have been pretty easy opponents. Tennessee snapped their three game losing streak with a win over Carolina, but they have struggled in their last four games. The Titans play their best football at home, where they are 4-1, while Indianapolis is also 4-1 on the road. This Titans offense has not been very good in their last four games and I think we are in for a low scoring game here. Take the under in this one.
