- Tennessee demolished the Kansas City Chiefs 27-3 last week marking back-to-back weeks beating teams from last season’s AFC Championship Game
- See the best player props for Week 8’s clash below
Ryan Tannehill and the Tennessee Titans (5-2) take on Carson Wentz and the Indianapolis Colts (3-4) this Sunday. Kick-off from Lucas Oil Stadium is scheduled for 1:00 pm ET on CBS. Spero Dedes and Jay Feely will be on the call for this pivotal AFC South battle.
These two teams have already met once this season with the Titans taking that game 25-16 in Tennessee. Both quarterbacks were held to under 200 yards passing in that game but Derrick Henry couldn’t be stopped on the ground, running for 113 yards in the victory. It should be noted that AJ Brown was not active that day for the Titans.
The Colts are 1.5-point favorites in this game which is one of the more curious lines of the week. The total is right at 51 at the moment which seems to be a likely closing place. As always, there are a ton of player props to go over which we will look into now.

Odds as of Oct. 30 at DraftKings
Carson Wentz Can Still Play
It seems like every time I see something written about Carson Wentz, it’s always an attempt to call him washed. Sure he hasn’t been great this season or last season or the season before. Plus, it’s hard to defend a guy that seems to make massive mistakes in big moments.
He makes the criticism too easy really.
Carson Wentz just pulled a Carson Wentz

But, before we totally write him off, we have to remember that this is sports betting. We don’t need Wentz to be great. We just need him to cover a number. That’s it.
The number that sticks out most to me is Wentz’s touchdown prop. At 1.5 -105, it seems like a pretty easy bar to clear. Wentz has thrown at least two touchdowns in each of his last four starts. One of which was during a monsoon last week against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Titans defense has been good this season, but they allow touchdowns just like everyone else. In fact, only 11 teams have allowed opposing quarterbacks to throw more touchdowns (12) this season. This is a great number at a great price so it’s definitely worth a wager.

Alie-Cox has done nothing but score over the last four weeks. Well, one week he didn’t score but on another he scored twice. Four touchdowns in four weeks for the Virginia Commonwealth product and he’s still priced at +250. The Titans are not exactly a pushover but remember from last section, they’ve allowed opposing quarterbacks to throw 12 touchdowns against them already this season.
Why can’t Mo Alie-Cox-Cox catch one Sunday?
