Titans Look For Redemption In Week 5 Against The Jacksonville Jaguars

Posted on October 8, 2021

The Jacksonville Jaguars (0-4) are on the prowl in Week 5, looking to steal a victory from the Tennessee Titans (2-2), who suffered a loss last week against the New York Jets.

Regardless, sportsbooks still expect the Titans to return from TIAA Bank Field victorious.

Titans vs. Jaguars betting odds

After Tennessee’s tough Week 4 loss to the Jets, a previously winless football team with a new coach and rookie quarterback, the outcome of this week’s matchup is anyone’s guess.

The Titans remain first in the AFC South, and Tennessee operators predict this might be the perfect opportunity for the team to refocus its efforts.

 

The Jaguars are ranked fourth in the AFC South and have lost all four of their first games this season. Moreover, the Bengals were the only team Jacksonville didn’t lose to by 10 points or more.

In addition to the tough losses, the Jaguars are undergoing some turmoil with Head Coach Urban Meyer, which has led to distractions within the team this past week.

Moneyline

Tennessee enters its matchup with Jacksonville as the more likely victor according to Tennessee online sportsbooks, which situate the Titans moneyline at odds.

Even though they have the home-field advantage, the Jaguars are this week’s underdog with odds of winning.

Being in the same division, the duo has faced off against each other twice a year since first meeting in 1995. The only exception to this was in 2005, when they battled only once.

In those 53 games against each other, the Titans take the lead with a 32-21 win record.

Tennessee has been victorious in the previous three faceoffs, with the Jaguars last winning in September 2019.

Spread

Sunday’s spread sits at in favor of the Titans.

Tennessee has won by a mere three points in two of its past six matchups against Jacksonville. The rest of those games, however, have each ended with spreads of anywhere from 13 to 22 points.

Over/Under

Sportsbooks set the game’s over/under at points.

Tennessee’s first four games this season have totaled an average of 51.5 points per game. Jacksonville’s four games have seen slightly less action, averaging roughly 47 points per game.

Besides the lines set at sportsbooks, those looking to bet on the Tennessee Titans this weekend will also need to consider injuries before placing a wager.

Tennessee’s injured players

Tennessee faces another seemingly manageable game this week, though the team’s recent luck with injuries certainly doesn’t help.

The Titans are struggling with one heck of a battered team, and according to this week’s injury report, players hardly look to be recovering.

One exception to this is wide receiver A.J. Brown , who returned to practice on Wednesday and received a limited participation designation. Brown missed each of last week’s practices along with last week’s game against the Jets.

With its No. 1 WR in tow this week, the team will be fit with a more capable offensive lineup. Fellow wide receiver Julio Jones, however, has yet to participate in one of this week’s practices.

Bettors can tune in beginning at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, Oct. 10 to see whether the Titans will manage to extend Jacksonville’s winless record.
