Lions Titans Betting Tips – Megatron, Lions Look To Get Back On Track At Tennessee This Sunday

Posted by Tony Bryant on 9/19/2012 6:41:23 PM

The Detroit Lions are coming off a tough 27-19 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football. A trip to the Music City could help them get back to singing a sweet tune. The Lions will face a Tennessee Titans’ team that has the worst point differential in the NFL through two games, with the chance to get back on track and improve to 2-1. The Titans have allowed an average of 36 points through consecutive losses to the New England Patriots and San Diego Chargers, a sports betting average that Matt Stafford and company will look to hit this Sunday.

The Titans haven’t been able to get anything positive going on either side of the ball through two games, particularly on the ground where quarterback Jake Locker leads the team with 32 rushing yards ahead of Chris Johnson’s 21. Johnson’s struggles have been among the biggest storylines through the first two weeks, something that will need to change for Tennessee to have any chance this week.

The Lions’ defensive front-four will work to make sure that Johnson doesn’t get going, and they now have two reels of game film to look through and dissect how the Patriots and Chargers shut him down. Detroit’s defense has been far from dominant itself with an average of 25 points against through two games, and while that number isn’t terrible this team will only go as far as the offense takes it. The Lions managed to put up 19 points against one of the best defenses in the NFL at San Francisco last week, but have the potential to double that total if Stafford and Calvin Johnson can get on track early on in this contest.

Without a reliable rushing attack the Titans have been far too easy to key in on, even with Kenny Britt joining Nate Washington and tight end Jared Cook in a solid receiving core. Tennessee will need to pound the rock and continue to try and find ways to get Johnson going, as he remains their biggest threat even when he is not producing. The Titans haven’t gotten much from their defense either as both New England and San Diego have gotten off to quick starts in the first two games. The Tennessee defense needs to generate more pressure up front in order to make up for holes in its secondary, but until that happens the defense will continue to get shredded.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Considering the talent the Lions have on offense and how bad Tennessee has been through its first two games, it really is surprising to see the online sportsbook number so low. Detroit will look to gets its offense going early in order to prevent Johnson and the Titans’ run game from getting a chance to get going, and if the defense doesn’t step up this game could get out of hand in a hurry.
