NFL bet heavily favors the Tennessee Titans on Sunday as they host the St. Louis Rams.
The Titans were red-hot until last week when they lost for those that bet on football to the Indianapolis Colts. They will try and bounce back this week against a poor St. Louis team.
NFL bet odds have Tennessee as almost a two touchdown favorite in this game. It would not seem like the Rams have much of a shot in this NFL bet contest. Their only offensive weapon is running back Steven Jackson who had 112 yards rushing in last week’s loss to Chicago. "I don’t want us to get used to losing; that’s the most important thing right now," Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said, "I want us to be disappointed, not discouraged." The Rams simply don’t have much that can scare other teams. Quarterback Kyle Boller threw for only 113 yards last week and was sacked three times. The St. Louis defense has been decent and that makes covering the bet on football spread possible. While the Rams lost to the Bears they did cover the NFL bet lines.
Tennessee had their winning streak stopped last week in an NFL bet loss to the unbeaten Indianapolis Colts. The Titans played well at times but couldn’t score in the red zone and it cost them the game as they lost by 10 points to the Colts. Running back Chris Johnson went over 100 yards for the seventh straight NFL bet game but it was not enough. "We just didn’t finish in the red zone," quarterback Vince Young said.
While many that bet on football will look to the Titans in this game, it should be noted that the Rams are 4-1 vs. the NFL bet odds in their last 5 road games. St. Louis plays defense well enough that they are capable of staying within the NFL bet number. People still won’t want to take the Rams though when making an NFL bet since St. Louis can’t score.
Tennessee has been pretty good vs. losing teams of late as they are 9-3 against the NFL bet pointspread in their last 12 games vs. a team with a losing record.
Five of the last six St. Louis games have gone under the bet on football total. Five of the last seven Tennessee games in December have gone under for those making an NFL bet.
