The Titans upset the defending Super Bowl LIII champions New England Patriots in the Wild Card round 20-13. According to the best online sportsbooks, Tennessee were 4.5 road underdogs. Thus, they advanced to the Divisional round. The win over the Patriots was the Titans’ first at Gillette Stadium. As well as their first in Foxboro since 1993, when the franchise was based out of Houston as the Houston Oilers.

“Titans coach Mike Vrabel said on a conference call with Baltimore-area reporters that backup quarterback Marcus Mariota, the No. 2 pick in the 2015 draft, would serve as his scout-team signal-caller this week. In practice, Mariota will aim to give Tennessee’s defense an understanding of how Jackson and the Ravens’ offense might look Saturday,” reports Penn Live.com.
Betting Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens became the only NFL team to score at least 20 points in each of their games this season. Come Week 15, Baltimore had scored more points (430) in a single season than any other Ravens team in the history of the franchise. Also that week, they clinched their second consecutive AFC North title with a 42-21 win over the Jets.
A Week 16 win over the Cleveland Browns meant Ravens clinched the AFC #1 seed. Therefore gaining home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. As well as broke 500 total points, both for the first time in franchise history. The Ravens finished the regular season with 3,296 rushing yards, the most by any team in NFL history in a season. The 2019 Ravens became the first team in league history to gain at least 200 passing yards. And 200 rushing yards per game in the same season. The Ravens outscored opponents by 249 points, the highest point differential in the regular season.
According to betting sites, the under is 6-0 in the Ravens’ last six playoff home games. Baltimore is 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. And 4-0 ATS in their last four games after a straight up win.
As we can gather, these Ravens are a well-oiled machine. But could time off slow their momentum? Not according to starting QB Lamar Jackson. “Every playoff game is like the Super Bowl,” he said. “It’s do or die, it’s win or go home. I’m good. The team’s good. I’m just trying to win it all.” Jackson started last year’s postseason loss slow. He went just 2-of-8 for 17 yards in the first half against the Chargers. His takeaway from that game is you “can’t start too late. You have to attack fast.”
