Titans vs. Commanders Betting Angles

Titans Commanders Spread: Why Tennessee Can Cover

The Titans have been playing better the last two weeks – winning and covering their last two games, and winning outright last week in Indianapolis. Derrick Henry has averaged 99.5 yards in the two wins the last two weeks, meaning less will be on the plate of Ryan Tannehill.

The other big reason for Titans optimism is Carson Wentz, who has thrown 5 interceptions in 4 games and leads the 27th best Pass offense in the league, per DVOA and PFF grades.

Titans Commanders Spread: Why Washington Can Cover

The Titans defense isn’t great – 21st overall, 26th against the pass, per DVOA. If Wentz can avoid being turnover happy, he could put up some scores against a bad defense.

The Commanders Defense has been very good at getting off the field on 3rd Down, with a 4th in the league rate. If they can get stops on 3rd Down, the Titans might not be able to score.

Why The Over Can Hit

Wentz’s inability to control the ball does bring into play a defensive touchdown or a short field. The total is one of the lowest of the week, making it easier to go over.

If Henry can rip off a big run or two, or Wentz can connect on a risky deep throw, which he enjoys, then this game could speed up. If the Commanders fall behind, they have shown in Week 2 an ability for Wentz to carve up a prevent Defense, which could help hit the number.

Why The Under Can Hit

The Titans are going to run the ball a lot, which is going to make an under seem better if they can successfully get Henry going. If he can get started, the clock is going to run a lot throughout the game, hurting the number of plays.

The other thing is, Wentz’s turnover prone game could also hurt the Commanders, if he throws them out of drives that would have ended in points. The Commanders are the most sacked team in football, which could kill drives at key times.

Titans – Commanders Player Matchups

Derrick Henry Rushing Yards: O/U / ()

When Henry gets going, Tennessee tends to play better. Without much in terms of talent on the outside, Tannehill needs Henry to run the ball well to draw defenders down. Tennessee will run a lot in this game, especially if they get ahead.

Carson Wentz Interceptions: O/U / ()

Wentz is always a liability to throw two interceptions in a game, especially if he’s playing from behind. If the Titans can get an early lead, Wentz will have to get into chucking mode – which can help his team, or more often, his opposition.

Final Thoughts

Carson Wentz is, plainly, not good at football. This line could easily get to -3 for the Titans, especially if the market gets skittish about Wentz.

Washington’s offense is a disaster – near the bottom in most offensive metrics, with a bad Quarterback. Wentz hasn’t worked out for the Commanders like they hoped he would, and Washington is now stuck with him.

Is Tennessee anything spectacular? Not really, but they’re 14th in Offensive DVOA and 12th in Offense by PFF, which should be enough. 9th in Yards/Pass against the 28th ranked defens

e in Washington should mean Tannehill has a good opportunity to move the ball. Washington’s 1-3 and on a three-game losing streak for a reason. Wentz is not a winning QB, and Tennessee is playing better.
