NFL Week 10 Picks: Tennessee Titans vs. Miami Dolphins

1 of 5

    NFL fans need to be careful in making the Miami Dolphins one of their against-the-spread (ATS) picks on Sunday, as they get set to host the Tennessee Titans inside Sun Life Stadium, with the opening kickoff scheduled for 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS.

    The Dolphins are currently 6.5-point home favorites in the Week 10 NFL betting odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at 44.5 in the marketplace.  

    Let's take a closer look at this AFC matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a pro football prediction along the way.

Tennessee Titans

2 of 5

    Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson may be averaging 115.2 rushing yards per game over his last six contests, but he'll have a hard time reaching the century mark in Miami on Sunday.

    The Miami Dolphins haven't allowed a single rusher to gain 100 or more yards against them in 22 consecutive games.

Miami Dolphins

3 of 5

    I'm not sure if Miami Dolphins rookie Ryan Tannehill is ready to lay this type of number, as he enters this AFC matchup with a 78.2 passer rating.

    Sports bettors will also find that the Dolphins are a money-burning 22-51-1 ATS in their last 74 home games. 

Las Vegas Perspective

4 of 5

    I reached out to Jimmy Vaccaro earlier this week about this high-profile affair. He serves as the public relations director for William Hill U.S., and here's what he had to say: 

    Miami wins this one in front of 30,000 die-hard fans to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. It's a B- matchup, but Miami's simply the better of the two right now.

Prediction

5 of 5

    I'm going to recommend that readers back the Tennessee Titans in this contest, as the Miami Dolphins are 0-10 ATS in their last 10 tries as home favorites of six or more points.
