You have to shake your head when you see the NFL wagering online odds on this game.
The Tennessee Titans are 5-2 this season while the San Diego Chargers are 2-5. Guess who is favored? Yep, it is the Chargers and by four points. Are you going to take a shot with Tennessee with your NFL bet at SBG?
The Titans have a bye next week and they are 9-6 before the bye with Jeff Fisher as their head coach. The Titans have not beaten the Chargers since 1992 so perhaps that is one reason why San Diego is favored. The Chargers have won seven straight games in the series. The Titans have not won on the road against the Chargers since 1990.
Vince Young Could Return
The Titans should have quarterback Vince Young back this week. They survived with Kerry Collins but it was their defense that won the game for them last week against the Eagles. The Titans got four turnovers and a great performance from Kenny Britt to beat the Eagles 37-19. Collins did throw for 276 yards in the game.
Chargers Finding Ways to Lose
Can San Diego find another way to lose? They lost last week against New England as kicker Kris Brown hit the goal post on a field goal that would have tied the game. The Chargers are now 2-5 this season even though they have the NFL’s top offense and defense. Let me tell you that number again. The Chargers have the best offense and defense in the league but they are just 2-5. They have yielded just 244.3 yards per game and they have gained an average of 422.7 yards per game. Quarterback Philip Rivers leads the NFL with a total of 2,344 passing yards. But San Diego is still coached by Norv Turner and that is all you need to know.
