Week 5 Titans vs. Ravens NFL Predictions

NFL Week Five Gambling – Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens (2-1 SU, 3-0 ATS), looking to rebound from their first loss of the season, will return home to host the undefeated Tennessee Titans (4-0 SU & ATS) in an NFL game that is scheduled to kick off at 1 PM ET at M&T Bank Stadium (artificial turf) in Baltimore.

Sunday, October 5

BetUS NFL Betting Odds: TENNESSEE -3, Total 34

NOTABLE STAT: Baltimore is allowing 3.1 yards per rushing attempt

KEY NFL FOOTBALL BETTING TREND: Titans are 12-5 ATS in last 17 road games

In the BetUS NFL football betting odds, the Titans are listed as a three-point road favorite, with a posted total of 34 points.

Here are some NFL football betting trends as they relate to this matchup (reflecting numbers going into the 2008 season):

* TENN has covered five of its last six games
* TENN has won seven of its last eight games SU
* TENN has played five of its last seven games UNDER the total
* TENN has covered 12 of its last 17 road games
* TENN has won nine of its last 13 road games SU
* TENN has played four of its last five road games UNDER the total
* BALT has covered four of its last five games
* BALT has covered six of its last 20 games
* BALT has lost 10 of its last 13 games SU
* BALT has played eight of its last 10 games OVER the total
* BALT has covered four of its last five home games
* BALT has won 17 of its last 23 home games SU
* BALT has played five of its last six home games OVER the total

Also…

* BALT has covered eight of the last 12 meetings
* BALT has won six of the last eight meetings SU
* Five of the last six meetings have gone UNDER the total
* Six of the last seven meetings in Nashville have gone UNDER the total

The Baltimore defense isn’t giving much ground, as the Ravens have surrendered 237 yards or less in each of their first three games. And the Ravens have been double-tough against opposing running attacks (3.1 ypc), although admittedly these were three struggling offenses. Tennessee offers perhaps a bigger challenge than Baltimore has encountered this season, with swift rookie Chris Johnson (337 yards) and LenDale White (161 yards, 5 TD’s) making for a pretty strong 1-2 punch.

But the Ravens have a formidable tandem of their own, as Le’Ron McClain (4.1 ypc) has been moving his 260-pound body around just fine when Willis McGahee’s been hobbled. And Joe Flacco, while not spectacular thus far (56%, 1 TD), has not had the big blow-up in a game. Flacco’s been finding the range a little more, giving indications that even after Troy Smith bounces back from tonsillitis, the rookie will retain the starting job.

Meanwhile, it’s the veteran on the other side, as Kerry Collins continues to turn in serviceable performances and give Tennessee a level of confidence in the passing game that perhaps it did not have behind Vince Young. Coach Jeff Fisher has made it clear that Collins would not be unseated as long as this team kept winning, and the 4-0 start is the first in the team’s history.

I think the differences here are that Flacco is going to have a “rookie” game sooner or later, and that could well come against the likes of VanDen Bosch, Haynesworth and a secondary with eight interceptions, and Collins is enough of a calm veteran now to handle Baltimore pressure. Tennessee isn’t bad traveling, are they (12-5 ATS last 17)? We’ll lay the three points with the Titans, the favorite in the BetUS NFL football betting odds.

Our PLAY: TENNESSEE -3 **
