Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
New York Jets vs Tennessee Titans
The New York Jets will travel to Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee, to battle the Tennessee Titans on Sunday afternoon at 4:05 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. The Jets lost their fifth straight game by suffering the 27-13 home loss to the New England Patriots as the home team played a decent first half by going in at the half tied with the Patriots 10 – 10; However, the Patriots came out in the second half and sealed the victory due to a Sony Michel touchdown run along with a touchdown pass from Tom Brady.
The Tennessee Titans also suffered a loss in their last outing as they endured a 34-17 road lost to the Houston Texans as Marcus Mariota threw for a tad over 300 yards for the game, however, the Texans were allowed to rush for well over 200 yards in the matchup while dominating time of possession in the meantime. The home team is 4-1 against the spread in the last 5 meetings amongst these two teams.
New York Jets's Latest Performance :
The Jets have lost five straight games with their last being a 27-13 home loss to the New England Patriots. Much like the Titans, the Jets offense have really struggled during their current skid. In fact, the offense has not scored over 18 points in their last five games while their defense is giving up 29 points per outing during this time. The Jets are ranked 29th in total yards in the league with 302 per game as Sam Darnold is now out with a foot injury while his replacement, Josh McCown, is questionable for this game with a thumb injury.
Nonetheless, the rushing attack is also non-existent these days as they were only able to obtain 74 yards in this area versus the Patriots with Isaiah Crowell who only rushed six times for 30 yards. As stated, the Jets have struggled on both sides of the ball and will likely have an opportunity in which two improve upon their stats as they will be facing a team that has struggled just as much, if not more, then they have this season.
Tennessee Titans's Latest Performance :
The Tennessee Titans continue to be up and down on the year as they have a tendency pick up a string of victories while following this up with a string of defeats. After a two-game winning streak to where the Titans averaged 31 points per game while their defense was allowing only 12 points, the Titans have now lost two straight to where the offense is now averaging 14 points per game while the defense is allowing 36 points. In their last outing, they allowed the Houston Texans to run all over their defense to the tune of 281 yards led by Lamar Miller with 162 yards and a touchdown.
On the other hand, The Titans could only muster 105 yards on the ground for the night as Derrick Henry finished the game with eight rushes for 30 yards total. Mariota, as stated, threw for 303 yards of the night along with two touchdown passes; However, the quarterback was sacked a total of six times for the night and continuously found himself in pressure situations throughout the game. In all, Tennessee looks to somehow get back on track versus a New York Jets team that also enters the game on a severe losing streak

Tennessee is 6 – 5 ATS while the OU is 4 – 7
In-Depth Analysis of each team:
This game will be an interesting one in that you have two teams that have really stunk up the field the past few weeks. On one hand, you have a New York Jets squad that is dealing with critical injuries at a pivotal time in the season while the Titans are simply not playing consistent enough on both sides of the ball in which two win on a weekly basis. With that being the case, look for the focus to be there for both teams in what I expect to be a low-scoring yet very competitive contest amongst two teams desperate for a win.
Against The Spread Selection: Pick: Tennessee Titans -7.5
My reason for the pick :
With the Jets quarterback situation being in limbo, I will most certainly pick the Tennessee Titans and the points in this matchup Of course, the Jets were crap with Donald in the lineup and with Josh Rosen taking the keys last week and now being questionable with a thumb injury for this match up, as stated, look for the Jets offense to struggle yet again versus a Tennessee Titans offensive attack that is certainly looking to get its running game back on track.
Totals Selection: Pick: Under 40.5
My reason for the prediction :
I will back the under in this contest due to the fact that both offenses continue to struggle mightily for the season. Combine this with the fact that both defenses are very much better than their offensive counterparts, look for this game to be controlled by the defensive units as they will have solid nights versus awful offenses throughout.
