Get ready for some exciting betting opportunities as the NFL’s Week 11 starts out with a TNF cross-conference matchup featuring the Tennessee Titans and the Green Bay Packers, two teams coming off Week 10 wins with the Titans getting back their starting QB Ryan Tannehill after an ankle injury while Packers QB Aaron Rodgers returns his team from the dead.
Tennessee has covered the spread in each of their last seven games so that alone might be a good reason to expect them to do that here, except Green Bay has shown some serious life and QB Rodgers is starting to click with his young receivers including rookie Christian Watson who had three TDs off four catches last week while RB Aaron Jones averaged 5.8 yards per carry.
What the Titans have is the second most productive RB in the league in Derrick Henry who has already generated 923 yards on the ground off 202 carries for 9 TDs so far averaging 4.6 yards per carry on the season, a 6’ 3” 247 pound force of nature that the Packers’ 26th ranked run defense is going to have to at least neutralize because stopping him is often out of the question.
If you are new to sports betting and are looking for a fun bet to make when you are not tied to either one of the two teams playing, the points total bet is perfect since it involves guessing whether the final score of the game will go over or under what the oddsmakers predict, in this case of the Titans versus the Packers that would be 42 points total.
Keep in mind that ten of Green Bay’s last 12 games after coming off overtime have gone over the total points line, but also take a look at what both of these offenses typically generate on the scoreboard, with the Titans averaging 18.4 points per game and the Packers averaging 18.5 points per game, that total of 36.9 under what this bet allows, a good sign to wager that way.
Before you break open that betting kitty, also take a look at what these two defenses typically allow, with Tennessee DC Shane Bowen’s group allowing opponents to score 18.7 points per game while Green Bay DC Joe Barry’s defense allows the teams they play to score 21.6 points per game, that total of 40.3 points still under what the oddsmakers are predicting for this game.
When it comes to an outright win here, it is the NFL so either team can have their way, but Tennessee fans will be quick to point out that the Titans have won six of their last seven games, so anyone who believes they can carry that momentum forward and beat this Packers team that seems to be just a shadow of its old self, bet a $100 on the money line and win back $125 if you’re right.
On the other side of the field are the Green Bay Packers fans who have been patient during Green Bay’s slow start to the season and for those who have faith that future Hall of Fame QB Aaron Rodgers is ready to go on a win streak with his young WR crew can bet $145 on the money line and if Green Bay does win here that would pay out $100 plus your original wager.
Be sure to check for any major injuries to key playmakers since that could have an effect on who could win here, for example eight Titans defensive players are listed as questionable including LB Bud Dupree (hip) and DE Jeffrey Simmons (ankle) whereas Green Bay has three players who will be game time decisions (all on defense) including LB Krys Barnes (concussion).
