New Orleans Saints vs Tennessee Titans Betting Preview: Henry-less Titans Should Hold Off Kamara-less Saints in Nashville

By | November 14, 2021

A few weeks ago, the Saints’ trip to Nashville would have been looked at as one of the top games in Week 10. But injuries have taken a lot of the shine off of the matchup, and it isn’t as much of an NFL betting draw as it would have been

The Titans have been able to find answers all season long. They surely have to come back down to earth after whipping the Rams in L.A. though, right?

The Saints have been better on the road than at home this season. That includes wins away from home against both Bays, Tampa and Green.

New Orleans Saints vs Tennessee Titans Best Bet

Tennessee Titans -2.5

The Saints have had one of the stingiest defenses in the league this season. That group is going to have to be even stronger in Nashville. The offense, which recently lost starting QB Jameis Winston for the season looks very limited this week thanks to the recent addition of RB Alvin Kamara to the injured list.

If ever there was a week to pull out all of the QB/RB/WR Taysom Hill tricks, this would be it. That low total is telling you that the markets are expecting the offense to struggle, and it is hard to argue with that opinion. The only real sign of encouragement is that the Saints have played their best games against the best teams on their schedule.

The final score last week showed that the Titans dominated the Rams last week, but did they? In their first game without RB Derrick Henry they had less rushing yards than their opponent, half as many passing yards, and less time of possession. They were an efficient 3 for 3 in the red zone and had four penalties to the Rams’ 12. They are back home this week and have another week under their belt to manage playing without Henry. The defense has holes, and they are catching a huge break not having to chase Kamara around the field.

This line is basically saying that with the state of the two teams only home field is the real advantage. That feels kind of right, and at the current number I like the home side to win the day. Even without Henry there is more certainty with the Titans, who never seem to get the respect they deserve because they are not flashy offensively. The Saints’ defense keeps this one in range, but the offense will let them down.

Prop Watch: Taysom Hill Anytime TD

Hill has been hurt a chunk of the year and famously did not win the starter’s job over Jameis Winston in the preseason. Nevertheless, it is the middle of the season now, they are on the road, and he is the best playmaker. Someway or another Saints coach Sean Payton has to generate some points. He finds a way to get his Swiss army knife into the end zone.
