Best Bet of the Day
NFL: Tennessee Titans -2.5 over Denver Broncos
1:00 pm ET, CBS
The Titans will run Derrick Henry hard, challenging the defense to stop him, and the Broncos have allowed nearly 140 rushing yards per game over the last 3 weeks and we’ve seen them getting stomped by some of the better backs in the league. The Broncos’ rushing attack has been in trouble since Javonte Williams tore his ACL and they have barely cracked 100 yards per game on the ground over the past 3 weeks. Both teams have played some close games all year, but with a 2.5-point spread favoring the Titans, we have to favor the home team. Tennessee is 6-2 against the spread this season and has covered in the last 5.
Lauren Jbara and Jared Smith are your hosts today and they will be joined by Pickswise NFL props expert Bobby “Prop Holliday” Stanley to look at all today’s NFL line moves and the best props and teasers before revealing their Plays of the Day.
The Week 10 edition of Pickwise Playbook, our weekly NFL preview show, is also available — featuring former NFL star Tank Williams. So be sure to check that out, too!
You can also access the shows at any time through Spotify and Apple Podcasts (search for Let’s Bet It Presented By Pickswise).
Stat of the Day
The Packers have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 games as an underdog.
