Welcome to the first edition of the AtoZ Sports Titans gambling previews. Oh boy, do we have a doozy of a game for our first one.
If you think the Titans are tough to predict, let me introduce to their NFC equivalent – the Atlanta Falcons. Much like Tennessee, Atlanta is as unpredictable as NFL teams come.
Both teams come into week four with 1-2 records straight up and against the spread. A lot of gamblers are avoiding the spread in this game, but the over/under along with a prop bet could both prove to be profitable.
Both teams have hit the under in two of their three games this season. The Falcons offense is consistently overestimated by sportsbooks which leads to their games getting higher total numbers than they probably should. To add to that, Titans fans have had an up close look at Tennessee’s offensive woes which also makes the under feel like a must-hit bet.
The total is set at 46 at most books.
The Titans secondary could also make you some money this weekend. At most books, you can take a prop bet for whether or not a quarterback throws an interception in a specific game.
Matt Ryan is throwing interceptions at an extremely high rate this season. Over three games, Ryan has already thrown six interceptions. Six! To put that into perspective, he only threw seven interceptions all of last season.
Matt Ryan: proud owner of SIX interceptions in 2019.

The Titans secondary is also third in the league in interceptions (in large part thanks to Baker Mayfield in week one). All in all, it seems like Matt Ryan is bound to throw an interception in this game.
There you have it, the first edition of our Titans gambling preview.
The defenses will certainly reign supreme in this game. Let them make you some money.
