As a consequence of drafting Heisman Trophy quarterback Marcus Mariota Tennessee was touted for greatness. Mariota has had a checkered pro career that has ended up with his current backup role. Ryan Tannehill took over for Mariota after his own star-crossed career with the Dolphins. And a Tennessee franchise that was written off for dead now has renewed life. Head coach Mike Vrabel has seen his once very hot seat cool off. However, on Sunday the Titans have a tough NFL bets matchup at an improved but inconsistent Raiders team. Tennessee has had its share of struggles at Oakland.

Tennessee Titans vs. Oakland Raiders Overview
Tennessee has an online wagering mark of 7-5 straight up, 6-5-1 against the spread, with seven overs. Last week the Titans won and covered at Indianapolis 31-17. It was the third win in four games for Tennessee. Overall the Titans rank 15th in the NFL for scoring offense and eighth for points allowed. Head coach Mike Vrabel is feeling and looking much better after a poor start. Elevating Tannehill to the quarterback has made the difference.
Counter to that is Oakland’s record of 6-6 straight up, 6-6 on the board with 6-6 on totals. Kansas City throttled the Raiders last week 40-9. NFL metrics have Oakland ranked 23rd for scoring offense and 28th for points allowed. Of great concern is that the Raiders have been blown out in two straight losses.
