When the Tennessee Titans and Miami Dolphins take the field on Sunday, there will be two new faces suiting up for both teams. The latest NFL football sports betting odds as posted by online sportsbook BetPhoenix have the Titans listed as one point favorites.

The Titans take the field with a new and explosive player on the offensive side of the ball. After winning the waiver claim, the Titans nabbed often disgruntled wide receiver Randy Moss off to join the team. This will be the third team this season for Moss, who started the year with the Patriots and then was recently released by the Minnesota Vikings. The Titans hope that Moss can be a deep threat and stretch out the field for running back Chris Johnson.

The Titans are not the only team to make a change on offense as the Dolphins also made a move during the week. Chad Henne will be relieved of the starting quarterback duties and replaced with veteran journeyman Chad Pennington. Henne has struggled on the season, throwing 10 interceptions against just eight touchdowns. This will be the first game for Pennington since injuring his shoulder in 2009.

The Dolphins got some good news on the injury front when safety Chris Clemons and tight end Anthony Fasano returned to practice.

The Dolphins are 9-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last 11 games as an underdog and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games after allowing more than 350 total yards in their previous game. The Titans are 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game and just 1-4 ATS in their last five games as a road favorite.

The change will be a good thing for the Dolphins as they need a spark on offense. The team trusts Pennington and what he brings to the game and will use that motivation to win this Sunday against the Titans.

Dolphins +1
