Titans vs Colts Betting Odds - Vince Young's magical run ends at Indianapolis

NFL latest linesLooks like the Titans vs Colts betting odds mean something after all. When these two teams met earlier this season, the Kerry-Collins led Titans were a winless, hopeless punching bag for Peyton Manning and the Colts. Now, after Vince Young led the Titans to five straight victories, they’re a legit threat to Indy’s undefeated season. Can the Titans again do the unthinkable in NFL betting?


Titans vs Colts betting Odds: Colts -7 (Total: 47)
WHAT: NFL betting
WHEN: Sunday, December 6, 1:00 p.m. ET
WHERE: Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, IN
KEY STAT: Colts have won an NFL-record five straight games when trailing at the start of the fourth quarter
PICK: Colts -7



Titans vs Colts betting odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
Few stories have been more uplifting in sports betting than Vince Young’s this season. Labeled a bust, cast aside and reportedly battling serious depression, Young seemed like he’d never be relevant in the NFL again just a year ago. Then Titans owner Bud Adams forced Jeff Fisher to start Young after the team started 0-6. Young hasn’t looked back. Not only has he helped Tennessee become the first ever NFL team to win five straight after starting 0-6, he’s been far more than a caretaker. He’s become a key part of the offense. The big question, though, is if the Titans are hot enough to beat the unbeatable Colts, against whom no lead is safe.


Titans vs Colts betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
Brett Favre may be the frontrunner now but Peyton Manning isn’t far behind in the MVP race. His remarkable vision and accuracy help him pick apart defenses at crucial points in games and there’s no reason to believe he won’t do it again this week. The Titans’ NFL-leading rushing attack makes them a dangerous foe for Indy’s suspect run defense. Lightning-quick Chris Johnson has a shot at Eric Dickerson’s single-season rushing record of 2,105 yards. Young makes plays with his feet but is developing his pocket passing too; he threw for a career-high 387 yards in Week 12 against Arizona.

Tennessee’s offense has vastly improved since it first met Indy this season but the Colts remain one of the best three scoring forces in the NFL.

Betting Edge: Colts


Titans vs Colts betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Titans are working harder and getting healthier on “D” but haven’t faced an elite offense since New England massacred them 59-0 in Week 6. Since then, Tennessee has beaten Jacksonville, San Francisco, Buffalo, a Kurt Warnerless Arizona – only Houston counted as a good offensive team. The Titans still get burned in the passing game and Manning, who topped 300 passing yards against them in Week 5, should torch them again.

The Colts will undoubtedly give up major rushing yardage but Young won’t pass on them like he did against Arizona. The Colts have given up more passing yards than normal of late but three of their last four matchups came against Matt Schaub (twice) and Tom Brady. Playing at home, they have a slight defensive edge.

Betting Edge: Colts


Titans vs Colts betting odds for total: 47
The Colts’ offense, not their defense, is winning them games. They’re used to shootouts and should allow plenty of points thanks to Chris Johnson. I’d expect a barn burner.

Pick: Over 47


Titans vs Colts betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
Titans defensive tackle Jason Jones keeps missing games here and there due to a nagging shoulder injury and will likely be questionable again this week. From Dwight Freeney to Kelvin Hayden to Bob Sanders, the Colts have battled plenty of injuries this week. Freeney has the best chance to return and the Colts could use his speed off the end against the fleet-footed Young.

Betting Edge: Titans


Titans vs Colts betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
Both teams have so much momentum that it’s tough to bet against either of their NFL odds right now. The Titans, however, may be in over their heads against Peyton Manning. They’ll put their points up – Vince Young’s renaissance is legit – but I can’t see them dethroning the Colts in Indianapolis. Close, but no cigar. Pick Indy to cover.

DJ’S PICK: Colts -7
