NFL Odds + NFL Picks: Tennessee Titans Best NFL Prop Bets

NFL Prop Bet: Ryan Tannehill UNDER 250.5 Passing Yards

Well, last week certainly could’ve been better for the Titans, as they returned from a Week 7 bye only to receive a Week 8 beatdown by the Bengals. However, it was still a fantastic prop day as Derrick Henry busted above the 104.5 rushing yard threshold for 112 rushing yards and the easy win. It feels almost like cheating recommending the over on his rushing prop on the DraftKings sportsbook again, so let’s look elsewhere for today’s pick (although hammering the over on just 94.5 rushing yards seems like something you should be doing).

And there’s no better way to double-down on my King Henry rushing expectations than by shorting the quarterback who’s passing production should suffer as a result. That would be with one Ryan Tannehill, who has actually put together a second-consecutive stellar season in a Titans uniform. Averaging 260.4 passing yards per game and a solid 17:3 TD/INT ratio, an outcome of over 250 passing yards is certainly within the realm of possible. But against an exceptional Bears defensive unit that excels at creating pressure in the passing game and holds the opposition to a measly 241.9 passing yards per game, today’s game script feels substantially more Henry-centric.

Furthermore, the main reason I’m on the under here is a downward trend in passing opportunity. Tannehill has only thrown more than 30 attempts once in his past five games, and has exceeded 250 yards in only two of his previous seven. It’s not that Tannehill isn’t performing; he doesn’t have to with Henry being the focal point of the offense. Let’s not overthink this one: over on Henry’s 94.5 rushing yards, and even more so, under on Ryan Tannehill’s 250.5 passing yards.

NFL Prop Bet: Bears/Titans UNDER 47.5

If you’re experienced in daily fantasy sports but new to sports betting, there are some parallels that can be drawn. For instance, if you anticipate a certain game script, it would behoove you to follow that game script with all picks and props to ensure you don’t negatively correlate bets against one another.

With that in mind, I’m anticipating the Titans to lean heavily on Derrick Henry to right the ship after back-to-back losses, perhaps even more than usual. While Henry can certainly break off for major chunks of yardage and speed this game up, I don’t see the Bears matching pace. In fact, I don’t see the Bears putting up much offensive production at all. If you click on the ‘See Matchups’ column for this game, key stats from both teams are presented. And boy, do the Bears stats look brutal:

So let’s do some math: 20.1 points per game (awful) plus 20.8 points against per game (not awful) averages out to nearly a full touchdown below expectation on this 47.5 total. I love putting a unit on the under here as a result of an inept Bears offense against the rush-heavy Titans. Oh, and be sure to make this bet on the BetMGM app, as locking in that half point could prove crucial at such a key number.
