Teams that are fighting for the playoffs are meeting across the board including in Miami as the Dolphins host the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee is a slight road favorite in NFL betting at the Sbg global sportsbook.
Debut of Randy Moss
Much of the attention in this game is going to be on the Tennessee Titans since it will mark the debut of Randy Moss with the team. It is expected that Moss will open up the running lanes for Chris Johnson and give quarterback Vince Young a deep threat. Going up against the Miami Dolphins is nothing new for Moss as he faced that team twice every year with the New England Patriots.
Titans 5-3 SU, 5-3 ATS
The Titans have been a good team this season against the NFL betting odds and they are very much in the race for the AFC South title. A win here against Miami would firmly entrench them as a solid playoff contender. A loss would put them back into the mix with a number of other teams in the AFC. The Titans have Chris Johnson and now they have Randy Moss so their offense could be improved. They already have a top 10 defense that is 9th in the league in fewest points allowed.
Dolphins 4-4 SU, 5-3 ATS
The Dolphins have played a brutal schedule. There are just no breaks for Miami. They lost against a superior Baltimore team last week and now they have to face a very good Tennessee team. If they can get a win here they would get to 5-4 and then get to play Chicago next week. There is no denying that this is a huge game for the Dolphins if they want to make the playoffs this season.
