Chargers vs Titans Betting Preview

Chargers vs Titans Predictions

The Chargers and Titans are both 0-1 after rough Week 1 outings. Of the two, the Chargers certainly had the worst of it, scoring 34 points but allowing 36 and a touchdown late to the Miami Dolphins. 

For the Titans, they lost 16-15, scoring all of their points on field goals. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill looked the worst we’ve seen.

Tannehill completed 16 34 passes for 198 yards (47.1%; 5.8 yards per attempt) for no touchdowns and three interceptions. He was horrific. 

On the flip side, the Chargers offense was excellent—the rushing attack combined for 36 carries, 234 yards, and three scores. Running backs Joshua Kelley and Austin Ekeler each had one, and quarterback Justin Herbert added one.

Unfortunately, the secondary couldn’t stop the Dolphins and wide receiver Tyreek Hill. Overall, the Chargers defense was atrocious. 

The Chargers might be without Ekeler here, which is a massive blow, but Kelley showed he can step in. The Titans also have some injuries to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and safety Amani Hooker.

Even with Ekeler out and as bad as the defense is, the Titans, with Tannehill under center, won’t be able to take advantage of that through the air. Their only hope here is to slow down this offense somehow while running back Derrick Henry runs wild. 

Not buying it.

Below are three best bets for this game that we found after reviewing the best NFL betting sites

Chargers vs Titans Picks & Predictions

Chargers -3 (-105)

We’re siding with the Chargers at -3 against the spread on the road. The Titans offense looks totally inept, and the potential absence or limited athleticism of Hopkins really diminishes the offense even more. Tannehill looked atrocious against the Saints, and while the Chargers defense should be easier on him, we have to consider the pass rush from Khalil Mack and Joey Bosa against Titans left tackle Andre Dillard and right tackle, Chris Hubbard. 

Against pressure in Week 1, Tannehill completed just four of 11 passes and threw two interceptions. The Chargers generated 17 pressures against the Dolphins.

Tannehill might be on his way to the bench after this week. 

Ryan Tannehill Under 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-145)

The Chargers secondary allowed well over 440 passing yards and multiple scores to quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, but just because they did that doesn’t mean every quarterback is going to carve them up.

They certainly need to improve, and in a hurry, but Tannehill, based on his Week 1 performance, isn’t going to threaten them.

We mentioned Hopkins on the injury report and his ability against pressure. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Tannehill have another goose egg in the touchdown department here. 

Keenan Allen Any Time Touchdown (+175)

In Week 1, Allen was held out of the endzone despite scoring 34 points, but he led the team in targets (9), receptions (6), and snaps while running a route (41). 

He’ll matchup with Roger McCreary, who had a solid Week 1 performance, allowing just two receptions for 17 yards, but Allen is a tough matchup for even the best slot cornerbacks. 

Look for Herbert to get Allen a score here.
