Titans versus Commanders Betting Odds - Week 5 of the 2022 Season

Titans versus Commanders Betting Odds – Week 5 of the 2022 Season

Over the years, we have seen teams get off to a slow start, with history showing that it becomes that much tougher to make the playoffs when getting off to a losing start. The extra game added to the regular season, as well as the additional playoff spot in each conference, has made things a little more forgiving, but there are still some teams who are close to hitting the panic button after the opening month of the new season. The Tennessee Titans have done a nice job of digging out of an early hole, but the Washington Commanders are in real danger of losing touch with the division leaders after a 1-3 start. This is a big game for both teams, as both could still very much use a win. It is the Titans who are in as a 2 ½ point road favorite, with the point total for this one set at 42 ½. Let’s see how both the Titans and the Commanders fair against each other so you can bet against their NFL Betting Lines.

Why bet on the Tennessee Titans

It was something of a disastrous start to the season for the Titans, who went out and lost their opening 2 games. They have since turned that around and come into Week 5 having won 2 in a row. Outside of their hammering at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in Week 2, the Titans have been involved in very close games, which may help explain why the bookies have the point spread at just 2 ½ in favor of Tennessee on Sunday. The Titans have been a good bet in non-conference games, winning 4 of their last 5. Perhaps the better wager here, though, is against the spread, with the Titans covering in each of their last 5 visits to Washington. Overall, versus the Commanders, the Titans have covered in 7 of the last 10 meetings. In October games, Tennessee has seen the OVER hit in 8 of their last 11.

Why bet on the Washington Commanders

The Commanders have basically had the opposite start to the season than the Titans. Washington opened up the season with a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, but it has been all downhill since then, as they have now lost 3 in a row. Offense has gone out the window, with Washington managing just 18 points total in their last 2 games. While they have had some success against the spread when playing teams from the South, they have not done well against Tennessee, failing to cover in the last 5 home meetings. Similarly, the UNDER has been trending for the Commanders, but that flips to the OVER whenever they go against the Titans. This is very much a must win game for Washington, but the stats appear to show that they might be in for a little more misery.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Titans are coming into this game with the momentum on their side, which is why I like them to go out and get the win, covering the spread in the process. I also think that we will see the point total creep OVER in this game.
