One thing that every team in the league can count on is that they are, at one point or another, going to need to deal with injuries. The hope is always that when those injuries do arrive that they do not have a massive impact on the fortunes of a team. Losing a couple of linebackers hurts, but losing a starting QB or one of the best players on your team hits a little differently. Ask the New York Jets how they feel about that right now. You might also want to add the Cleveland Browns to that discussion, which is something we will get into in more detail in a moment. This weekend, we will see the Tennessee Titans hit the road to square off against the Browns in Week 3. The bookies have this as a close one, with the Browns in as favorites at home by 3 ½. With the point total set at 39 ½. With that in mind, don’t miss the NFL betting analysis for Titans vs Browns.

Why bet on the Tennessee Titans
The Titans have been involved in a pair of close games thus far, going 1-1 through the opening 2 weeks of the season. They started out by losing to the Saints by a single point, and then they followed that up by beating the Chargers last weekend by a score of 27-24. This is actually very similar to how things went for Tennessee last season, too, with 6 of their last 10 games overall decided by 5 points or fewer, so they are certainly used to being caught up in tight games. The win last week has to be seen as a positive, though, as it ended a run of 8 straight losses, which includes going 1-5 SU in their last 6 games on the road. They have had success against Cleveland, winning 13 of the last 20 meetings. They are a very poor 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games against teams from the AFC North, with 9 of their last 11 versus the AFC overall going UNDER.

Why bet on the Cleveland Browns
As we mentioned at the top of this piece, the Cleveland Browns took a double hit in their Monday night game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Not only did they lose to their divisional rivals, but they also lost Nick Chubb for the season with a truly horrific knee injury. It is going to be interesting to see how they deal with both of those losses in a short week, but there are still some things to like about the Browns heading into this matchup. The Browns have been money when going against teams from the AFC, winning each of the last 6 meetings with those teams. They have also been a decent bet against the spread in the month of September, covering in 6 of their last 9. The UNDER has hit in 7 of the last 9 overall for the Browns.

Expert Pick and Series Prediction
Neither of these teams have looked particularly good on the offensive side of the football through the opening 2 weeks, and when you combine that with the trends, we get what looks to be a very solid UNDER bet.
