The Tennessee Titans travel to New Jersey on Sunday, Oct. 3 for a Week 4 matchup against the New York Jets.
Sportsbooks view this as the perfect opportunity for the Titans to continue their winning streak.
Titans first in AFC South
Tennessee enters this NFL Week 4 matchup with a 2-1 record. After losing their season opener to the Arizona Cardinals, Tennessee went on to win two back-to-back-games. The first was a 33-30 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in overtime.
Most recently, the Titans are coming off a 25-16 home win against their division rivals, the Indianapolis Colts.
While QB Ryan Tannehill continued to struggle with throwing interceptions, running back Derrick Henry carried the team for 113 yards over 28 carries as well as 31 yards over three receptions.
Titans players wounded in battle
Not everyone came out of the Titans’ last matchup unscathed, however. The win proved to be a costly one for the team overall.
Wide receiver A.J. Brown was hit with a hamstring injury early on in the game and remains questionable against the Jets.
Fellow WR Julio Jones also sat on the sidelines for the majority of Sunday’s second half. His status for Week 4 also remains unclear as he undergoes treatment for a leg injury.
Additionally, and most seriously, rookie outside linebacker Rashad Weaver suffered a broken fibula during the game. His timetable for return is currently unknown.
New York Jets try to get back on their feet
After suffering a 26-0 shutout last week against the Denver Broncos, the Jets carry their winless season into Week 4.
New head coach Robert Saleh continues to rebuild the team, with rookie QB Zach Wilson manning the helm. Wilson has led the Jets to a total of 20 points and thrown seven total interceptions during the three losses.
The Jets will likely also have to face the Titans without the help of wide receiver Elijah Moore, who suffered a head injury in the last game.
Titans vs. Jets betting odds
For those looking to bet on the Titans, this week’s game lines list them as heavy favorites, though bettors can still find value in a variety of markets.
Each team has had their struggles this year, both turning the ball over seven times in three games. When it comes to performance, the Titans take the clear lead. Tennessee averages 382.7 yards per game this year, while the Jets trail behind with 250 yards per game.
Against a team that traditionally struggles both on the offense and defense, Tennessee fans should see some big numbers out of Derrick Henry, especially if the WR duo of Jones and Brown is absent.
Sportsbooks have Tennessee as the heavy favorite when it comes to the moneyline, sitting at odds heading into the game.
In turn, New York is situated as the underdog with odds of a win.
At -110 odds, spread wagers can offer bettors a much better potential return on investment than a straight moneyline wager. Week 4’s game could very well be another instance where this rings true.
Not only have the Jets yet to win this season, but they have also yet to win against the spread.
The Titans are given a point lead in this matchup.
Sunday’s matchup has the potential to generate the lowest point total of any Titans game so far this season.
The over/under is currently set at points.
Looking at Tennessee’s three games thus far, two have raked in over 46 points. Their first three games averaged 51.7 points per game.
The Jets, on the other hand, have yet to play a game that’s seen more than 46 points this season, averaging 43.2 points per game.
