The Titans are favorites at the NFL Betting Odds for Week 10.

How to Bet Tennessee at Cleveland Week 7 NFL Spread & Game Preview

Written by on October 19, 2017

When a franchise gets into a year’s log rut, breaking out of it can be tough. It reaches a point where the people in the front office start to second guess every decision they make and the team is constantly against the NFL spread, while fans and players begin to forget what it’s like to win. It doesn’t take long for the rot to set in and seem like a permanent feature, and you need only look at the Cleveland Browns to see how tough it is to get out of. The Browns hit an all-time low with a 1-15 record last season, but after a good draft and offseason, the feeling was that they would start the upward climb this season. That has not been the case, though, as the Browns have started the season at 0-6, and once again look like a team that simply doesn’t know how to win. It wasn’t so long ago that the Tennessee Titans were in a position similar to that of Cleveland, but they started their climb last year with a solid season, and while they have not been great this year, they are still in a position to challenge for and win the AFC South. The Titans are a 5 ½ point favorite for this one, with the O/U set at 46 ½ points.

Why bet on the Tennessee Titans?

It has been an up and down season for the Titans through the first 6 games, with injuries playing a role in their inability to maintain any level of consistency. When you are in that sort of form, the hope is that you have a big game that sets the tone for the rest of the season. The Titans may have had that game on Monday night when they delivered a big, come from behind 36-22 win over the Indianapolis Colts. That win took the Titans to 3-3, allowing them to keep pace with the Texans and the Jaguars, both of whom are sporting the same record. If the Tennessee Titans are to continue moving forward this season, they need to tighten up defensively, as giving up close to 28 PPG will not get the job done. Tennessee has won in 4 of their last 6 visits to Cleveland, and have also gone 4-2 ATS in those games. The O/U is 7-2-1 in the last 10 games between these two teams.

Why bet on the Cleveland Browns?

There is really very little that you can say to encourage anyone to wager their hard earned money on the Cleveland Browns. This would certainly be the case if you are talking about a straight up bet, as the Browns are a staggering 1-11 SU in their last 12 at home. You expect teams to have some level of success in their own building, which makes the Browns record all the tougher to comprehend. Will Browns cover the NFL Spread for Week 7 with Hogan at center? You can’t even say that Cleveland has been particularly competitive this season, as they have only managed to cover the spread once in their 6 games. While it has been the UNDER that has hit in 10 of Cleveland’s last 14 games, that is a trend that has been bucked when playing the Titans, with 4 of their last 5 meetings going OVER the point total.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

Yes, it’s a short week for the Titans, but if you are forced to go that route, the easiest path would appear to be following up a Monday night game with a visit to Cleveland. I like the Titans to win and cover the NFL Spread, and I think the total will slip ever so slightly OVER. Score: Tennessee Titans 24 – Cleveland Browns 13
