Titans vs Bills odds, spread, preview: NFL week 2 predictions

Titans vs Bills match preview and latest NFL week 2 odds

So, it looks like all hell broke loose after the Titans were defeated on a missed field goal attempt at home in week 1. The Giants went home victorious, and everyone forgot that Tennessee was the first seed in AFC one season ago. The game versus the Giants wasn’t all bad and had that field goal by Bullock gone in, the line could have been different now.

Tennessee led 13-0 at the half and allowed NY to climb back and snag the win. What’s worse is that the Giants gained 399 yards in that game and 238 of them came on the ground. It just doesn’t speak highly of that Titans rush defense but there are a few bright spots for Tennessee worth mentioning below.

The Bills look like the best team in the NFL right now. This is also reflected in the Titans vs Bills spread this week. The NFL week 2 odds are typically interesting to observe but the 10-point handicap here is impressive. What’s more impressive is that in week 1 of the NFL season, Buffalo held the LA Rams to only 10 points after Sean McVay had all summer to prepare for an offensive outing.

Players to watch in the Tennessee vs Buffalo matchup

Here are the players we think might play a key role in this game. If you like the info, feel free to bet on the top NFL player props that we give away each week.

Tennessee Titans

Ryan Tannehill: After losing his top two targets in the offseason, Tannehill still managed to throw for 266 yards, 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. Will be interesting to see if he can ride this trend.

Buffalo Bills

Von Miller: The pass rusher had a good game against his ex-team in week 1. He is in no way a game changer right now but he still commands attention. Will the ‘’no blitz’’ scheme keep working for the Bills?

Titans vs Bills picks predictions

Our best NFL bets of the week for the Tennessee vs Bills game

We are giving away two picks for the game at hand and rest assured that our experts put in the necessary effort in each one of them.

The pick on the Titans vs Bills spread: Tennessee +10.0 @ -110

The best bet we got on this game is on the underdog. 10 points are just too big of a spread to pass up. We are encouraged by the fact that the Titans allowed only one sack last week. It is true that the Bills had seven even without blitzing once but the o-line for the Titans is graded way higher than the one of the Rams.

To cover the spread, the Titans will need to have more success running the ball which diminishes the pass rushing capabilities of the Bills D-line. In week 1, Tennessee rushed only for 93 yards, 82 of which were Derrick Henry’s. The Bills allowed only 52 yards on the ground, but it has to be pointed out that the Rams trailed heavily in the game and had to throw a lot.

Teams that are an underdog in week 2 coming after a defeat in week 1 cover the spread 61% of the time. We are in such a situation here.

The play on the over/under in the Titans vs Bills match: Under 47.5 @ -110

It is true that the totals went down a little bit over the course of the week. If you can get 48.0 anywhere, bet it without hesitation. At 47.5, we still like it.

It looks like Josh Allen is still prone to turnovers having thrown 2 interceptions in week 1. If the Titans can force some mistakes, they may reduce the Bills’ scoring potential significantly. Not to mention that Allen’s 89% completion percentage from last week is not sustainable in any way.

Additionally, this NFL prediction is somewhat corelated to our pick on the spread. When betting on such big spreads, you want the score to be low so that those +10.0 points have more significance.
