Los Angeles Rams vs Tennessee Titans: NFL Betting Lines, Odds, Picks

Even without Derrick Henry, the Rams face a much more severe test than they have in the past three weeks. The Tennessee Titans are already in town, without their elite run, for Sunday night football in week nine.

For the fourth consecutive week, the Rams have preferred more than one touchdown after playing 1-2 ATS against the Giants, Lions and Texas. The Titans certainly represent an update, but expectations from one of the best teams in the NFL are high again.

The total in play is still 54, which is interesting considering that after Henry’s announcement earlier this week, the spread widened in Rams’ favor, but the total remained unchanged.

Tennessee’s running game was hit hard by Henry’s absence as the Titans came out in the week, finishing first in tries and second in yards. Henry’s confidence was not only in how good a player he was, as the Titans also dealt with injuries to wide-ranging receptions of A.J. Brown and Julio Jones. Both players will need to figure out how to get on the pitch and stay productive.

Some additional pressure is coming from quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who has played really badly this season when dealing with injuries to his wide goal. Tannehill has already made seven interceptions last year in just half of his games. Last season, he made 33 touchdown passes and more than 3,800 yards of passes. This season, he is far from such a pace.

To make matters worse, Tannehill took 24 sacks, which is also in line with last year’s number. The Rams’ defense played better than the statistics show because some pointless attack from the opposition was factored into the numbers, but both the Pirates and Cardinals averaged 6.2 yards per game. Even without Henry, the attack of the Titans is closer to these teams than the Texans or the Lions.

However, it should be another good day for quarterback Matthew Stafford and offense. The Rams lead the NFL in adjusted net yards per pass at 9.2. That’s 0.8 yards more than the Cowboys and 1.2 yards more than the third-placed Buccaneers. No team in the NFL has yet to assess the effectiveness of this pass attack. Stafford has only been sacked eight times and the Rams are second in touchdown passes and yards per catch.

Tennessee’s defense is much better than previous versions, but the last two weeks have helped a lot. In the first six games, the Titans have achieved only five losses, but in the last two – six. They held the Chiefs and Colts at 334 and 307 yards, respectively, surpassed only in their first game against the Colts in week three. Rams bring a much better and more effective offense to the game.

It’s over here. Many people will be surprised by the contribution of Jeremy McNichols, who replaced Henry, who has proven to be a very effective player on the battlefield. There should be a lot of shots in this game and the Rams’ defense will face better shots than they have in the past few weeks.

Choice: More than 54
