Against the Spread (ATS) Pick

The Ravens come into this game flying high, having won five games in a row and going 6-0 ATS in their final six games of the regular season.

Baltimore finished the year with the second-best scoring defense in the league and the offense hit its stride with Lamar Jackson getting back to what he does best: unlocking defenses with his scrambling.

That said, it's worth noting that four of their last five wins came against some pretty terrible teams in the Bengals, Giants, Jaguars and Cowboys. Plus, the Titans weren't too shabby down the stretch either in winning five of their final seven games, including a 30-24 overtime win over Baltimore in Week 11. 

The Titans dominated with their running game in that contest, picking up 173 yards on the ground, including 133 from the league's leading rusher, Derrick Henry. Baltimore has been vulnerable against the run, allowing 4.6 yards per carry, and they were also trampled in the Divisional Round last year when the Titans won 28-12 with Henry rumbling for 195 yards.

Catching 3.5 points with a home team against a squad they have ran all over in recent meetings? Give me the Titans and the points.

PREDICTION: Tennessee +3.5 (-110)

 

Over/Under Pick

The total for this game is set at a whopping 55, the highest Over/Under of the Wild Card round, but there's plenty of reasons to think that might be a tad too high.

After all, they combined 48 points in regulation when they met up in November and totaled just 40 points in that playoff duel last January. 

While the Titans defense has been brutal this season, they are much better at defending the run than the pass. Jackson might be dangerous with his feet but he's thrown for under 200 yards in five of his last six games. And his track record in the postseason hasn't been great, so don't expect Baltimore to be able to exploit the Titans secondary. 

As for the Ravens defense, while they haven't impressed against the run they are very tough against the pass and hold opponents to just 18.9 points per game. 

When you also consider that these are two of the most run-heavy teams in the league and like to chew up the clock, the Under looks like a strong bet. 

PREDICTION: Under 55 (-110)

Player Prop Pick

Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been very efficient over the last two seasons but if Tennessee wants to win this game, they will need their ground game to be the focus. 

Tannehill has 31 or fewer pass attempts in 10 of his last 11 games. He also threw the ball just 14 times against the Ravens in their playoff matchup last year. 

With the Ravens terrific cover corners, look for the Titans to limit Tannehill's passing and take the Under 33.5 on his pass attempts. 

PREDICTION: Ryan Tannehill Pass Attempts Under 33.5 (-112)

Ravens vs Titans Betting Card

  • Tennessee +3.5 (-110)
  • Under 55 (-110)
  • Ryan Tannehill Pass Attempts Under 33.5 (-112)
