NFL Week 10 Picks: Tennessee Titans vs. Miami Dolphins
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 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.

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
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.
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.
