The Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans meet on Thursday Night Football in week 10 NFL action at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
The Indianapolis Colts look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last four games. The Indianapolis Colts have split their last four road games. Philip Rivers is completing 67.9 percent of his passes for 2,087 yards, 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Rivers has one or less touchdown passes in six of his last eight games. Zach Pascal and Mo Alie-Cox have combined for 571 receiving yards and four touchdowns while TY Hilton has 13 receptions. The Indianapolis Colts ground game is averaging 102.4 yards per contest, and Jonathan Taylor leads the way with 416 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Indianapolis is allowing 20 points and 290 yards per game. Darius Leonard leads the Indianapolis Colts with 51 tackles, Denico Autry has five sacks and TJ Carrie has two interceptions.
The Tennessee Titans look to build on their 6-2 record while keeping their lead in the AFC South. The Tennessee Titans have won four of their last five home games. Ryan Tannehill is completing 65.7 percent of his passes for 1,981 yards, 19 touchdowns and three interceptions. Tannehill has two or more touchdown passes in five straight games. AJ Brown and Corey Davis have combined for 826 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Jonnu Smith has 24 receptions.

Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 25.1 points and 394.1 yards per game.

The Colts are 12-4-1 ATS in their last 17 Thursday games, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. AFC South and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. AFC. The Titans are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. AFC. The over is 4-1 in Colts last 5 road games. The over is 15-5-1 in Titans last 21 games overall. The Colts are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings in Tennessee and 13-4 ATS in their last 17 meetings.
The Indianapolis Colts have arguably the best defense in the NFL, but the offense can really struggle at times and Rivers hasn't been the difference maker he was with the Chargers. The Tennessee Titans have played their best football of the season at home where they're 4-1 SU and they have more balance to their team overall. The Titans are also 3-1 this season when Henry doesn't top 100 rushing yards, so while he's the engine to this team, Tennessee doesn't need to rely 100 percent on him to win games. The Colts have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Titans, but I just don't trust them, especially on the road. The Titans should cruise in this contest.
I'll eat the small number with the home team.
