The Philadelphia Eagles will aim for their second straight win when they take on the Tennessee Titans Sunday afternoon from Nissan Stadium. The Eagles recorded a 20-16 home win against the Colts last week, and the Titans stunned the Jaguars with a 9-6 road win in their week three action. This marks the first meeting between these teams since the 2014 season in a game the Eagles won 43-24.

Wentz Leads Eagles to Win in Return

The Philadelphia Eagles have relied on their defense in both wins this season which included a 20-16 home win against the Colts last week. Carson Wentz made his long-awaited return and he was solid, racking up 255 passing yards with one TD against one INT. The 25-year old QB registered a dominating 33:7 TD to INT ratio in 13 games last season, and it will be interesting to see if he can duplicate last year’s success. Eagles #1 RB Jay Ajayi is questionable for this contest with a back injury, and the Eagles still managed to collect 152 rushing yards in his absence last week. Corey Clement, who has 112 rushing yards on the year, will see a bulk of the carries if Ajayi can’t play in this one. Zach Ertz was solid last week, recording 73 receiving yards, and the 6-foot-5 tight end leads Philadelphia with 215 receiving yards on the year. The Eagles offense has yet to find their groove, although they still feature the 11th ranked running game in the NFL.

The Philadelphia defense was terrific last week, limiting the Colts to only 209 total yards including only 164 passing yards from Andrew Luck. The Eagles’ stifling rush defense will be busy against a Titans team that will run the ball frequently. The Eagles are currently averaging 19.7 points per game, ranking them down at 24th overall. The Philadelphia defense has been their greatest strength early this year, and they are limiting opponents to 18.3 points, pegging them ninth in the NFL.

Titans Dazzle on Defense in Win Against Jaguars

The Tennessee Titans head into this matchup on a winning note after recording a 9-6 road win against Jacksonville last week to improve to 2-1. Quarterback Marcus Mariota didn’t put up big numbers, notching 100 passing yards with zero TD’s. The 24-year old QB played with an injured hand last week that kept him out of the lineup in week two, and he has registered 203 passing yards with an 0:2 TD to INT ratio in two games played. He entered the game after Blaine Gabbert suffered a concussion in the first half. Derrick Henry managed a team-high 57 rushing yards last week. The 24-year old RB has split the duties with Dion Lewis, and the duo have combined for 282 rushing yards on the year. Corey Davis led the Titans with 34 receiving yards against the Jaguars, and he is up to a team-best 151 receiving yards. The Titans offense hasn’t been flashy in any way, and they own the 29th ranked passing game in the NFL.

The Tennessee defense was brilliant against the Jaguars, limiting them to 232 total yards and only 145 passing yards. Their pass defense has been outstanding, and they will be up against a potent Eagles passing game this week. The Titans have now won two straight behind terrific defensive play after falling to Miami in their season opener. They are scoring an average of 16.3 points, ranking them down at 30th in the NFL. The Titans are holding opponents to an average of 16.7 points, good for fourth in the NFL.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I am taking the Eagles in this contest. The Titans have received little production from their passing game which ranks 29th in the NFL, and they rely on their running game to generate a good portion of their offense. This is an ideal matchup for the Eagles as they currently feature a rush defense that is holding opponents to an average of only 61.7 rushing yards, good for first in the entire NFL. Furthermore, the Eagles were still able to rush for 152 yards last week in Jay Ajayi’s absence, and the Titans rush defense ranks down at 23rd in the NFL. I also expect an even better performance from Carson Wentz in this one after shaking off some rust last week.

Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles -3

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The under is a solid play in this matchup. This matchup consists of two strong defensive teams, and I expect a low scoring battle. The Titans have scored 20 or fewer points in all three games, and their running game will have a tough time against the Eagles’ strong rush defense, plus the under is 7-1 in their last eight home games against a team with a winning road record. Furthermore, the Eagles have yet to click offensively, and both Alshon Jeffery and Jay Ajayi are questionable, plus the under is 4-0 in their last four games following an ATS loss.

Prediction: Under 42

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

I am taking the under on the Titans team total. The Eagles’ defense just held Andrew Luck and the Colts to 16 points last week, and they limited Matt Ryan and the Falcons to 12 points in week one. The Titans are only averaging 1.3 touchdowns per game in three games, and Mariota is playing with an elbow injury.

Prediction: Titans Team Total: Under 17.5

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

I am taking Tennessee on the halftime line. The Eagles have started slow in the first half this season, averaging only 6.7 points. They come alive in the second half where they are averaging 13 points. In addition, the Eagles have allowed an average of 11 points in the first half in three games.

Prediction: Tennessee Titans +2.5

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

The under on the halftime line is also an attractive option. The Titans have played outstanding defense in the opening half, holding opponents to only 5.7 points. They limited the Jaguars to only a field goal in the first half last week. In addition, Tennessee is only averaging 6.7 points in the first half. Overall, I expect a low-scoring game from start to finish.

Prediction: Under 20.5

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

The Titans to score first is worth a look. Tennessee is averaging a solid 6.7 points in the first quarter, ranking them ninth in the NFL, while the Eagles are having trouble scoring early, averaging 2.3 points in the opening quarter. In addition, the Titans have yet to allow a single point in the first quarter this season.

Prediction: Team to Score First: Tennessee Titans +100
