Seattle beat the Colts on the road in their season opener with a 28-16 win. Tennessee was crushed by Arizona in a 38-13 loss.
You have to expect the Titans to have a better offensive showing with their trio of high-end weapons, but will they be able to outscore Wilson and the Seahawks?
Last year, the Titans were 7-9 against the spread (ATS) and had a W/L record of 11-5. They were 3-5 ATS on the road.
Tennessee should be worried after getting completely shut down by the Cardinals. Arizona was not expected to have a top tier defense, but that’s what it looked like in Week 1. That’s impressive going up against the offensive talent on the Titans team.
According to Football Insiders’ DVOA (Defense-adjusted Value Over Average), the team ranked 14th in the league in 2020. This is a measurement of successful plays considering both total yards and yards towards a first down, with extra “points” awarded for big plays.
There is an offensive and defensive component to the stat. The Titans were 4th on offense and 29th on defense.
Defense is not Tennessee’s strength, so if their offense is struggling, they have little chance of winning games. Playing on the road against Seattle and trying to figure out the part of their game that should be a strength is not a recipe for success.
Last year, the Seahawks were 8-8 against the spread (ATS) and had a W/L record of 12-4. They were 6-3 ATS at home.
Seattle looked great against a Colts defense that was supposed to be solid. Wilson was picking the secondary apart on the way to a relatively easy victory. He was 18-23 with 254 yards and 4 TDs.
In 2020, Seattle ranked 5th overall in DVOA (6th in offensive, 16th in defensive). It’s hard to tell if the Seahawks defense was that much improved or if the Colts just struggled offensively.
The Seattle secondary handled the Colts receivers well, but they’ll have a tougher challenge against the Titans’ offensive firepower (if they can get it together for Week 2).
Everything points to the Seahawks taking care of business here at home in Week 2. This might be an overreaction, but it seems as though there are many paths to victory for Seattle. They had a solid rushing attack as well as passing last game, so it’s not just Wilson doing everything himself.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Seattle Seahawks -5.5
The Seahawks are the bet in this matchup. Seattle’s defense looked improved, and their offense was good as usual. The Titans struggled on both offense and defense. Heading into Seattle out of sync is cause for concern for Tennessee.
Seattle should be the popular bet here which generally isn’t a good strategy, but this looks to be a good spot for the home team. Teams coming off an ATS and SU win in Week 1, then playing at home in Week 2 have a ridiculously good ATS record.
