New England Patriots vs. Tennessee Titans Odds, Pick & Point Spread: October 18th 2009
Coming off a loss to the Denver Broncos in a game they led 17-7 at half, look for the Patriots to come out hungry at home Sunday. They face a Tennessee Titans team that is now 0-5 on the season after their 31-9 loss to the Colts last week. Tennessee is in a world of hurt at quarterback, and on the defensive side of the football. The Titans are allowing 27.8 points/game and 288 passing yards/game. New England is primarily a passing team so Tom Brady and company should have their way with this Tennessee secondary just as Peyton Manning did last week. The Patriots are 3-0 at home this season with solid wins over the Bills, Falcons and Ravens. Tennessee is losing by an average of 10.0 points/game on the road this year, which included a 20-point loss at Jacksonville in their last road trip. New England is scoring 26.0 points/game at home this year and averaging 402 yards/game of total offense. 26 points will be more than enough to win by double-digits Sunday against this pathetic Titans’ offense that is scoring only 14.7 points/game away from home. The Patriots are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a home favorite of 3.5-10.0. Take New England and lay the points.
