Atlanta Falcons

NFL Team Atlanta FalconsAfter a narrow 16-13 triumph over Tampa Bay, the Falcons now own a 4-3 season record. NFL Quarterback Desmond Ridder has been impressive with 1,630 passing yards, but his record also includes 6 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. On the ground, Bijan Robinson leads with 404 rushing yards. Still, Tyler Allgeier isn’t far behind, having achieved 301 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns. The Falcons’ receiving unit is spearheaded by Drake London, with Jonnu Smith and Kyle Pitts contributing significantly. On the defensive side, Jessie Bates III and Kaden Elliss are key players, with Bates III nearing his 20th career interception.

However, history shows the Falcons have faced challenges on the road. After a win, they’ve experienced seven consecutive road defeats. Interestingly, in their last eight Week 8 games, underdogs have consistently covered the spread. When looking at standout players, Cordarrelle Patterson and Desmond Ridder have notable performances under specific conditions, showcasing their potential impact on the game.


Tennessee Titans

NFL Team Tennessee TitansFacing back-to-back defeats and coming off a 24-16 setback against Baltimore, the Titans are eager to bounce back. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has 1,128 passing yards this season. The rushing attack is led by Derrick Henry, with 425 yards and 3 TDs to his name. In the air, DeAndre Hopkins dominates the receiving charts for the Titans, with several others making notable contributions. Defensively, Azeez Al-Shaair has been a tackling machine, and Denico Autry stands out with his sack count.

For the Titans, October has been a promising month, especially as underdogs. Historically, they’ve had a good run covering the spread at Nissan Stadium. Key players like Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry, and DeAndre Hopkins have recorded commendable stats in specific game scenarios, hinting at their potential influence on the upcoming match. Ryan Stonehouse’s punting ability deserves a mention as he’s second in average yards per punt this season.



Anticipating this match, offense might be a concern for both teams. Despite the Falcons’ recent victory, they’ve had difficulties scoring during away games. The Titans, too, have their struggles, with Tannehill’s performance as quarterback raising questions. This encounter might not be a high-scoring one; it could be a race to reach 20 points. Betting-wise, the under 36.5 points on BUSR’s NFLFutures seems like a promising option. If you like to bet on a team, the Falcons seem likely to cover the spread.
