Tips For Betting On Titans Seahawks - Quarterbacks Take Center Stage In Titans-Seahawks

Posted by Tony Bryant on 8/7/2012 6:26:18 PM

The Tennessee Titans will receive a friendly reception when they visit the Pacific Northwest for their preseason opener. That's a strange thing to say, but it's a true thing to say as well.

Why Tennessee Will Win

Each of the two primary quarterbacks for the Tennessee Titans will be highly scrutinized and cheered this weekend… in a road game. Yes, that's a situational curveball for NFL preseason games and for those making the odds at various betting sites. This kind of reality is surprising, akin to a stunning plot twist in an online poker game. However, it's worth noting in a larger competitive context.

Matt Hasselbeck used to be the quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, so when he takes the field in Seattle as the quarterback for the Tennessee Titans, he's going to be applauded. Hasselbeck is the only man to quarterback the Seattle franchise to the Super Bowl. He did a lot for the organization and will be remembered warmly by the people of Seattle. He will have incentive to play well on Saturday night, even though he'll get only two series at most. Yet, that fact opens the door to the other quarterback who will acquire the spotlight for the visitors.

Jake Locker was the starting quarterback at the University of Washington for four years. Locker grew up in the greater Seattle metropolitan area and was wildly popular for most of his collegiate football career. Locker showed a lot of athleticism and natural gifts last season in his maiden NFL voyage. Locker will want to play his very best in this game not only to give Seattle fans a show, but to challenge Hasselbeck for the starting quarterback spot and tell his teammates that he's ready to perform at a higher level in 2012. This culture of competition is exactly the kind of thing that leads to a victory in a preseason game. Tennessee's prime players will want to put their best foot forward; that's a powerful reason to go with the Titans.

Why Seattle Will Win

When NFL betting gurus look at the Seahawks, they'll see a team that has clearly improved in comparison to last year. The Seahawks got better at quarterback with the pickup of Matt Flynn from the Green Bay Packers. Flynn is not a sure-fire bet to be a great quarterback, but he should rate as an improvement over the always-erratic Tarvaris Jackson. Moreover, Flynn's lack of in-game repetitions should give the Seahawks' coaching staff every reason to give him at least 20 minutes of play on Saturday. Flynn needs work, and that's precisely what could work in Seattle's favor. The Seahawks have a fast, youthful defense that should give Tennessee some problems. They can certainly win this game if Locker does not play well.

Who Will Win

It’s possible that Flynn could star while Locker suffers, but the probabilities suggest that with Flynn learning a new system, it is Locker who will play better than any other quarterback on the field. That means Tennessee will win.
