Titans vs. Raiders: What are the odds?

New, comments
Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans take on a resurgent Oakland Raiders team this Sunday at Nissan Stadium.  The line opened at Titans +2.  This is going to be an interesting game that once again pits strength against strength.  Derek Carr has been playing really well, except for this past Sunday when he screwed me in DFS, but that's not what we are talking about here.  They have a solid set of skill position players in Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and Latavius Murray.

The Raiders are not very good on defense.  They are 29th is yards per game, 30th in passing yards per game, 23rd in rushing yards per game, and 27th in points allowed per game.  There are going to be opportunities for big plays for Marcus Mariota and the offense.  The Raiders are also bad against tight ends (ALL THE DELANIE WALKER!!!1).

Mike Mularkey has said that Kendall Wright should be back for this game.  Mariota has been good against bad defenses.  This looks like a prime opportunity for another 4 TD, 0 INT game for the rookie signal caller.
