Gotta like the Titans as slight road favorites tonight at -1.5 at MetroBet.us/Sugar as nearly all of the betting trends are pointing toward Mike Vrabel’s squad.
Both teams are 1-1 against the spread this year but Tennessee was far better last year, going 8-8. Jacksonville was just 5-9-2 ATS.
Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota isn’t putting the fear of God into anyone these days, but he has had recent success against Jacksonville. Mariota and the Titans swept the season series last season, and also swept the season series two years ago when Jacksonville made its march to the AFC title game.
Moneyline: Titans -125, Jaguars +104
Total: Over 39 -110, Under 39 -110

It’s never pretty with Mariota, but he has shown enough to be able to get Tennessee tough road wins. He hasn’t made many costly errors this season as he has zero interceptions thrown with four TD passes.
Tennessee stunned the NFL with a blowout win at Cleveland in Week 1, but then they fell 19-17 Sunday at home to a tough Colts squad. This seems to be par for the course for Vrabel teams as last year they often posted huge upset wins (they beat the Eagles and Patriots) only to lose the following week.
The Titans are a textbook zig-zag team, so expect them to show up Thursday in Northeast Florida.
The Jaguars, meanwhile, are in serious danger of falling to 0-3 this season. They did not have an easy first two games – losing at home to Kansas City 40-26 and on the road to Houston 13-12 – but there has also been plenty of drama to go along with the two Ls. Disgruntled cornerback Jalen Ramsey is likely to play for the Jags Thursday night, if he’s not traded beforehand, and will serve as a major distraction for Doug Marrone’s team.
The play: $10 on Titans -1.5
