Raiders vs Titans spread, odds, and preview of the game at hand
This week 3 matchup will be a very interesting one as we will have two teams that are both 0-2 facing off. The Tennesee Titans were completely overwhelmed by the Buffalo Bills in MNF in week 2. They lost 41-7 and generated only 187 yards of offense while giving up 414 to the Bills.
We can’t decide which loss was worse as the Raiders blew a 20-0 lead at halftime to only lose 29-23 in OT. Because of a second-half rally, the Cardinals outgained Las Vegas 413 to 324 yards.
This line opened at Pick ‘em but is now Raiders -2.0 @ -110. This means that on a neutral field, the Raiders would be favored by 4. It sounds a little bit too steep at this point.
Players to watch in the Raiders vs Titans match in week 3
Here are the key players we will be exploring in this game. Some special NFL week 3 odds for player props and the respective predictions can be found at our dedicated page.
Devante Adams: Adams will need to bounce back in this game in an effort to prove he is indeed a top 3 receiver in the league. After a terriffic game 1 with 141 receiving yards on 10 receptions, Devante Adams posted only 12 yards receiving in week 2. This is bad. He needs to turn it around.
Derrick Henry: The massive running back just hasn’t been great this season. He averages 3.1 yards per carry, and we are still expecting him to break a big run. He hasn’t had a carry that went over 20 yards yet. With a depleted receiving corps, the Titans will need King Henry to produce big time.

Raiders vs Titans spread betting: Titans will cover the +2 at home
We are going with the Tennessee Titans as a home underdog in this one. Yes, we know the team can’t generate a lot of offense, but you can definitely run on Las Vegas. Even with James Connor banged up, the Cardinals posted 143 yards on the ground against them. The Titans are yet to have more than 100 yards on the ground versus anyone this year and we think this is the game it will happen.
The current turnover ratio for the Titans is -3 and we think this won’t last long. Turnovers are typically something unpredictable and basing a handicap on them is not viable. This is why we think the -3 in turnovers is not something too dire. Furthermore, there’s a trend for you.
The Titans are 8-2-0 ATS after playing a game in which their turnover margin is -3 or worse.bet on nfl with wynnbet >
Ryan Tannehill over 207 passing yards @ -110
Our second NFL bet of the week on the Raiders vs Titans match is a player prop. We are reluctant to bet on Derrick Henry’s stats because they depend on the game script too much. Furthermore, Henry is yet to prove he will be really good this season.
With Tannehill, we expect a moderately good passing game, and this line proves it. It’s not too high at all and if Tennessee falls back early, we expect Tannehill to sling it. He managed to throw for 266 yards against New York in week 1 at home. We expect a similar performance this week too.bet on nfl with fanduel >
