Odds/Point Spread: Tennessee Titans -2, Total Odds: 37.5

The Tennessee Titans’ running game will suffer as a result of the injury to Haskins, who was scheduled to receive significant playing time while vying with Derrick Henry for the backup job. The Titans lost six of their last seven matches against the spread when playing the Vikings, and they are 1-6-1 ATS in their previous eight games.

 

The offensive line, which is thought to be a strong asset for this squad in 2023, provided their quarterbacks time to work steadily throughout the first game, even if the Minnesota defense had some issues in their first preseason game. The Vikings should score enough points on Saturday to defeat the Titans thanks to Mullens, who shone in the first week and is anticipated to start and see major playing time, and versatile rookie RB Chandler, who has some experience under his belt.
