Against The Spread Selection: Pick: New England Patriots -6
My reason for the pick :
Look for the Titans defense to keep the home team in this game for a bit, however, the Patriots offense will take advantage of their opportunities throughout and will certainly take control of the game as some point. The fact is that there is no way that the Titans can keep up with this offense for the Pats. Of course, they will rely on their defense to keep them close, however, New England has been playing well on defense lately and will certainly look to get after Mariota all game long as they seem to have no rushing attack to speak of.
Totals Selection: Pick: Over 46.5
My reason for the prediction :
The over was the play the last time these teams met and with the offense for New England clicking once again, look for this trend to continue Sunday when these teams meet. Also, with Josh Gordon becoming more of a deep threat for the Pats, look for their scoring to increase in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, the Titans will score some points early in keeping the game competitive, they will not be able to sustain this pace throughout the game as the score will balloon thanks to the Patriots having another solid night on offense.
