The Tennessee Titans will look to extend their winning ways under quarterback Ryan Tannehill when they visit Jacoby Brissett and an Indianapolis Colts team that will be looking to get back on track after stumbling a bit over the last month of the season. With both of these AFC South division rivals owning identical records, let’s find out which team is the pick to get the win to boost their hopes of possibly winning the division and reaching the playoffs.

Why Bet On Tennessee?
Despite being on the road and nearly field goal underdogs, there are a handful of good reasons to back the Titans in this huge matchup. First of all, the Titans have won two straight and four of their last five games. More importantly, Tennessee opened up a can on Jacksonville last weekend en route to a commanding 42-20 blowout win while putting 35 points on the board the previous week against Kansas City.
While the Titans have lost three of four on the road, Tennessee is also the statistically better team on both sides of the ball. Last but not least, running back Derrick Henry is in the midst of a fine season as he ranks fourth in rushing yards (991) and fourth-most touchdowns scored (10).

Why Bet On Indianapolis?
The Colts have dropped three of their last four and are coming off a hard-fought 20-17 road loss against Houston last weekend. Still, there are some good reasons to back Ind in this week 13 divisional battle. The Colts have won four of six home games this season. Indy has also overcome some serious adversity after the sudden retirement of star quarterback Andrew Luck just prior to the start of the regular season. Then, there’s the fact that Indianapolis is ranked a stellar third in rushing and eighth against the run. Last, but not least, the Colts have won three straight over Tennessee including their narrow 19-17 road win in Week 2.
- Average Score For: 22.18
- Total Yards: 339.45

Titans vs Colts Expert Analysis and Prediction
While the Titans are looking great under Ryan Tannehill and Indianapolis is trying to find its footing after getting Brissett back under center a week ago, I like the Colts to show up in a big way in this contest in order to get the win and narrow ATS cover in a contest that looks like a knock-down, drag-out affair just waiting to happen.
The Colts are a perfect 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games against their AFC South division rivals and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in December. Conversely, Tennessee has gone an uninspiring 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up win of more than 14 points and a dismal 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road dates against Indianapolis. With the Favorite going 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings and the Colts definitely having a healthy sense of urgency, I like Indy in a field goal finish!
Pick: Indianapolis 24 Tennessee 21
