Let’s take a closer look at these two teams and we’ll start with the underdog Tennessee Titans.
The Titans are 4-4 overall and 4-4 ATS. The Tennessee Titans started the season off 3-1 before losing three games in a row, but their losing streak ended against the Dallas Cowboys to bring their record to .500, but they still have a long way to go in order to get back into playoff contention. Tennessee is 5-3 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS after a win, 2-1 ATS at home and 5-1 ATS as an underdog.

New England Patriots
The Patriots are 7-2 overall and 6-3 ATS. After a slow start to the season at 1-2, the Patriots have won six games in a row and look like the favorite to win the AFC again this season. New England is 6-3 ATS overall, 4-2 ATS after a win, 2-2 ATS on the road and 6-3 ATS as a favorite.
Tom Brady leads the team in passing with 2,494 yards for 17 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Sony Michel leads the team in rushing with 422 yards and 4 touchdowns. James White leads the team in receiving with 61 receptions for 531 yards and 6 touchdowns.

Patriots get the road cover
The New England Patriots are once again the class of the AFC while the Tennessee Titans are only a .500 team. Tennessee is coming off a win on the road against Dallas, but Dallas doesn’t have an offense like the Patriots or a coach like New England either. I look for the Patriots to steamroll the Titans on the road and pick up an easy win and cover. Make sure to bet this match-up on BetDSI.
