Titans vs Chiefs Predictions

POINT SPREAD: Tennessee Titans +12.5 (-110) at BetMGM

The NFL’s Week 9 Sunday Night Football matchup pits two AFC divisional leaders against each other when the Tennessee Titans battle the Kansas City Chiefs, the run-heavy Titans led by playmaking RB Derrick Henry traveling to Arrowhead Stadium to face the Chiefs’ run defense that is effective this season and ranked third in the league, the perfect mid-season matchup to bet on.

Momentum and health are valuable in the NFL and the Kansas City Chiefs should be plenty healthy after a Week 8 bye and they most likely still have their Week 7 win over the San Francisco 49ers, 44-23, still fresh in their helmets as HC Andy Reid continues his dazzling run of game planning for his future Hall of Fame QB Patrick Mahomes who leads the NFL with 20 passing TDs.

The Titans' offense is ranked last in the league right now, but they have covered the spread in each of their last five games, and in this bet, the oddsmakers lend them close to two touchdowns, so we think the game should at least be that close given Tennessee HC Mike Vrabel’s group has won five games in a row despite a banged up roster taking the field.

POINTS TOTAL: Over 46 (-110) at FanDuel

The oddsmakers are predicting the Titans and Chiefs will combine for 46 total points in this one, so the bet here is whether they will go over or under that number, and that’s a guess that a bit of research can help a bettor make, so here we take a look at how many points each offense typically generates and how many points their defenses usually allow.

The Chiefs are a heavy passing team led by QB Mahomes whose targets – WRs Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Mecole Hardman, JuJu Smith-Schuster, and TE Travis Kelce – and they score the most points per game in the NFL with 31.9, and the Titans are a run-first team starring RB Henry and they average 18.9 points per game, that total of 50.8 well over what the bet allows here.

On the other side of the ball, Tennessee is stingier than Kansas City, the Titans’ defense allowing opponents to score 19.7 points per game while the Chiefs’ defense allows the teams it plays to post 24.6 points, that total of 44.3 just under what the oddsmakers are predicting, this bet also affected by the chilly November Missouri weather that could make passing the ball and scoring more difficult.

MONEY LINE: Kansas City Chiefs (-560) at Unibet

The money line bet requires your team to win outright with no extra points from the oddsmakers, and when you consider that the Chiefs have won each of their last 14 games as heavy favorites (meaning -7.0 points or greater), they will most likely win in Week 9, but it will cost you a $50 bet just to win back $100 plus your original investment so it is risky if the Titans do come to play.

Fans of the Titans who think the major underdogs will shock the world and beat the Chiefs outright will have to bet $100 to win back $450 plus their initial bet if Tennessee somehow sneaks in a win, a distinct possibility when fielding RB Henry who can have a huge game that embarrasses the other team, but that would require the rest of the team to be healthy.

Always a smart idea to check the injury list of both teams before placing a bet since a lack of playmakers and leaders could greatly affect the outcome of a game, and right now the Titans have nine players listed as questionable to play including QB Ryan Tannehill and RB Derrick Henry whereas the Chiefs are mostly healthy thanks to the recent bye they just used for rest and rehab.
