Tennessee Titans vs Indianapolis Colts Odds

7-6TEAM RECORD0-13

The Titans were 8-3 ATS in 11 games against the Colts with Peyton Manning and they plan on extending that streak without him under center for Indy.

The UNDER has been the best bet when these AFC South foes clash, going 11-2 past 13 meetings. In fact, there have only been two OVERs since 1987 when these teams clash in Indy.

The Colts are now 2-10 ATS in their past 12 home games and the season can't end early enough. But there is motivation here to head off that dreaded 0-16 season and this is their best shot at doing it.
