Titans vs. Raiders: What are the odds?

The Titans are favored? The Titans are favored!

NFL: Preseason-Tennessee Titans at Oakland Raiders Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

I cannot remember the last time the Titans were favored in a game. It was probably when the Jaguars came to Nissan Stadium last season. Well the Titans are currently a 1 point favorite at home this week (1.5 in some places) against the Oakland Raiders. This is pretty surprising considering most people had the Raiders contending for the AFC West just 2 weeks ago.

The over/under in this game currently sits at 47. I said last week that the Lions were going to put up a ton of points against the Titans. That didn’t happen. Maybe this defense is better than I am giving it credit for. They have only given up 1 touchdown through 2 weeks.

This will be another good test for Dick LeBeau’s group. Derek Carr has thrown for 618 yards through 2 games. They have good receivers in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree that will be a tough match-up for the Titans corners.

So give me your thoughts on this line and the over/under.
