Eagles Titans Betting – Titans Wear Down Eagles In Tough Game

Sports betting players know that football is a physical sport, and they’re going to get a first-hand lesson on Sunday in Tennessee, when the Titans host Philadelphia in a battle of two of the NFL’s toughest teams. The Philadelphia Eagles are going into this game short-handed, and the Titans will try to take advantage of that with a physical running game, and hitting the Eagles at every opportunity.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Sunday, October 24th, 1:00 PM ET
  • Where: LP Field, Nashville, TN
  • Pick: Tennessee Titans
  • What’s On The Line

    The Eagles (4-2) went to Atlanta and throttled the Falcons 31-17, but with that game, another quarterback controversy threatens to hit Philadelphia, if not this week, very soon. The Titans (4-2) rolled to a 30-3 romp at Jacksonville in the Monday nighter, completely dominating the Jaguars on both sides of the ball. Both teams are off to starts that some thought were above them, and there’s a lot at stake for both in what should be a physical game.

    Offensive Matchups: Eagles Titans Betting

    Kevin Kolb was almost perfect in the Atlanta Falcons game, going 23-of-29 for 326 yards, three touchdowns and a pick, and the Eagles knew he could do it; Kolb had a couple of 300-yard games last season. It was just a matter of whether Andy Reid would open up the playbook, and did he ever. The job is apparently Michael Vick’s when he comes back from injury, but he took it from Kolb when he was hurt, so do we trust Reid? Also, the Eagles will be without DeSean Jackson because of a concussion, and we don’t know when he’ll be back.

    Vince Young was hurt in the Monday nighter, but Kerry Collins came on and did a decent job, albeit against a Jacksonville Jaguars defense that is terrible. Chris Johnson is still the star of the offense, and he had 111 yards and a score against the Jaguars. The Titans are similar to the Eagles in that their game plan changes with the quarterback. Collins, like Kolb, brings a different skill set to the table than Young, like Vick, so you’re going to have to see how Young’s knee holds up this week in practice.

    Betting Edge: Eagles

    Defensive Matchups: Eagles Titans Betting

    The Eagles’ NFL betting chances against the Falcons were helped dramatically by a 21-0 lead, which pushed Atlanta into catch-mode, and the Eagles could blitz to their heart’s content. They sacked Matt Ryan three times, pressured him many more, and forced a couple of turnovers in the win, and they’re now 11th in the league on that side of the ball. End Trent Cole had a couple of sacks, and if the Tennessee Titans are going to keep their quarterback upright, stopping him is priority No.1.

    The Titans are 16th in the league on that side of the ball, but made to look very good by the Jaguars via terrible play-calling and execution. They forced four turnovers, allowed 249 yards, and they stopped the Jaguars on 10 of their 13 third-down chances. However, the Eagles pose a different set of problems with their speed and big-play ability, and the Titans won’t be able to be as aggressive as they were against the Jaguars.

    Betting Edge: Draw

    Notable Injuries: Eagles Titans Betting

    Vick (ribs) is likely out again, while Jackson (concussion) should also miss this game and more. Running back LeSean McCoy (ribs) is also banged up, but he should still play for the Eagles in this game. Left tackle Jason Peters (knee) and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (elbow) aren’t likely to feature, either.

    Receiver Justin Gage (hamstring) will sit another week, while cornerback Jason McCourty (forearm) is close to recovery, but not fully ready for the Titans.

    Betting Edge: Titans

    Outlook and Pick: Eagles Titans Betting

    There is no NFL betting line for this game yet as linesmakers are likely waiting for the injury report to come out in midweek, as the Eagles have a lot of important players who will probably end up on the list. They proved last week that they could get by without the likes of Vick and Jackson, but can they do it two weeks in a row, and against a Tennessee defense that is very good? We’re going with the Titans to use Johnson to run the ball, control the clock, and keep guys like Jeremy Maclin off the field. Wait for the online betting spread if you’d like, but take the Titans straight up.

    Stan’s Pick: Tennessee Titans
