The Titans have failed to cover five of their last seven meetings against Oakland, but they're also on a four-game spread win streak on the road.

And while Oakland is on a 3-8 against-the-spread (ATS) slide when laying points, it's played under in eight of its last nine at home.

 

Point Spread: Raiders opened as 1.5-point favorites; the total was 41.5. (Line updates and matchup report)

Odds Shark Computer Prediction: 20.7-15.8 Titans

 

Why the Titans Can Cover the Spread

Tennessee has lost two straight home games by the slimmest of margins, games some may argue it should have won.

It's hard to decipher which one of those losses stung more—the one that gave Jacksonville its first win of the season or the one against first-place Indianapolis.

Paybacks are on the brain and a nice little four-game, road ATS win streak won't hurt the confidence of Titans backers.

 

Why the Raiders Can Cover the Spread

Oakland snapped a two-game losing streak by going into Houston and knocking off the Texans last week.

And after splitting a pair of home games, they'll want to show off for the home crowd in a winnable game with two road games on deck.

 

Smart Pick

The Raiders are the right side here.

Just a couple weeks ago, the Titans would be laying points on the road, but the oddsmakers are telling you who the right side is by making Oakland a slight favorite.

The Raiders head to Dallas and Jersey to play the Jets the next two weeks, so they would like to get this one.

 

Trends:

  • Titans are 2-5 ATS past seven games vs Raiders
  • Titans are 4-0 ATS past four road games
  • UNDER is 8-1 past nine Oakland home games
  • Raiders are 3-8 ATS past 11 games as favorites
