Giants vs Titans Prediction: Spread

Last season, New York was a below .500 team against the spread, finishing just 6-11-0. In the 2021-2022 season, the New York Giants played 8 games in which they were more than a 6.5 point underdog, going 2-6-0 ATS. In these games, the Giants had a negative average scoring differential of -15.38 points.

Last season, the Tennessee Titans covered the spread in over half of their games, putting together an ATS record of 10-7-0. In the 2021-2022 season, Tennessee played 3 games in which they were favored by more than this week’s point spread of -6.5, going 1-2-0 ATS. In these games, Tennessee had a positive average scoring differential of 4.67 points.

Heading into the game, the Tennessee Titans are the heavy favorite to pick up the win. Even with the large spread, look for Tennessee to cover at home. A key reason that the Titans will go on to cover the spread is that the offense has an excellent matchup vs a New York defense that ranked 23rd in points allowed per game (24.5).

Even though last year’s team finished with a below-average scoring offense, look for them to come up with enough points to cover the spread. In particular, the Titans should continue last year’s success in the passing game, as the team ranked 8th in completion percentage at 67.1%.
