Online Sportsbook Odds for Week 6 Monday Night Football
After a wild weekend of sportsbook betting action, US sportsbook betting players are ready for some Monday night football. Yesterday, we saw the Saints pummel the Lions 52-38, we saw Aaron Rodgers go down with a broken collarbone, and we saw the New York Giants edge out their first win of the season by upsetting the Denver Broncos. Now, NFL betting fans are ready to find out who is the better team between the Indianapolis Colts and the Tennessee Titans.
The Colts ride into this Week 6 contest sporting a 2-3 record that ranks the franchise last in the AFC South. Technically, the Colts are tied with the Titans for a 3rd place ranking in the South and whoever loses this contest will earn the title of being the worst team in the division. Indianapolis is coming off a 26-23 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. But the Niners aren’t that great of a football team and seeing the Colts struggle to win that contest raises questions about how this team will fare this evening. Throw in the fact that Indy has to compete without starting quarterback Andrew Luck, and you might just have a recipe for disaster.
Looking over the Colts’ numbers, it’s clear that this team does not have the necessary parts to compete in the NFL. The Colts’ offense currently ranks 22nd in scoring, 27th in total offense, 25th in passing and 20th in rushing. It’s clear that not a single aspect of Indianapolis’ offense is elite and the exact same thing can be said about their defense. Indy is dead last in points allowed, 30th in total defense, 30th in passing, and 15th in rushing. With those kinds of numbers it’s hard to imagine the Jacoby Brissett led Colts pulling off the upset this Monday night.
Like the Colts, the Titans are also 2-3. Tennessee’s 3 losses of the season have come against the Oakland Raiders, the Houston Texans, and the Miami Dolphins. The Raiders and Texans are what many US sportsbook betting players consider to be playoff bound teams but the Dolphins are far from that form. Similarly, Tennessee has beaten the Jaguars and the Seahawks this season, so you the Titans can ball. Undoubtedly, these wins have prompted online sportsbooks to peg the Titans as the odds on favorites ahead of Monday night’s game.
The Titans are coming off a 16-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins in a game where they had to compete without starting quarterback Marcus Mariota. Mariota is officially listed as questionable ahead of this Monday night match, but that isn’t stopping NFL bookmakers from heavily coming out in favor of the Titans. If Mariota doesn’t make the start, online NFL betting players will find out just which team has the better backup quarterback.
Unlike the Colts who have essentially nothing to look for this season, the Titans have the ability to compete in the division. Granted, Tennessee is 14th in scoring in the NFL, 24th in total offense and 27th in passing. However, the Titans are 7th in rushing so there’s no question that they can enjoy success on the ground this evening.
