The Tennessee Titans and A.J. Brown currently sit atop of the AFC South with a 3-2 record, but that’s not saying all that much. The AFC South consists of the Colts, Texans, and Jaguars, three teams that aren’t impressing anyone this season. However, their division-leading status will be put to the test this week in a significant way when they host a team that many are predicting to win the Super Bowl – the Buffalo Bills.
Buffalo is bringing its high-flying, white-hot offense to town, and if the Titans aren’t ready to go from the opening snap, things could get out of hand in a hurry. The NFL betting lines currently have the Bills as a -5 road favorite. So let’s take a closer look at what we can expect from this game in Week 6.
A.J. Brown and the Tennessee Titans
A 3-2 record and leading a division is nothing to sneeze at, regardless of the teams in the division. The Titans have been banged up this season, with both star receivers A.J. Brown and Julio Jones missing time with hamstring injuries. Lucky for them, they have a running back named Derrick Henry, who has been his usual dominating self this year.
While Brown only has ten receptions on 25 targets this year (second-lowest of qualified NFL receivers), Henry has beast-moded his way to 765 yards from scrimmage, tops in the league among running backs.
Despite the injuries, the Titans have still managed to score points. After a dud in Week 1 when they lost 38-13 to the Cardinals, Tennessee has responded by averaging almost 30 points per game (29.75) in the last four contests.
Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills
The Bills have been unstoppable after stumbling out of the gates with a home-opening loss to the Steelers. Buffalo is a scary-looking team that has outscored its opponents 156-41 in the last four games, averaging a whopping 39 points per game.
Josh Allen has a shiny new toy in emerging tight end Dawson Knox, who has five touchdowns in his last four games. The Bills’ defense is stout and already has two shutouts on the year. They also made Patrick Mahomes look average last week (which is hard to do) when they cruised to a 38-20 victory.
Bills at Titans: Week 6 Prop Bets
Both teams piling up the points in recent weeks makes for an attractive prop bet pool. Of course, we know that Buffalo will score, but it will be interesting to see how long the Titans can keep up. Here are a few intriguing game prop bets to consider:
Will both teams score 20 or more points?
The yes on this is currently paying -185, while the no is at +140. I think points will come freely and easily in this game, so I expect the yes to hit. Even if Buffalo dominates, there should be enough garbage time for Tennessee to squeeze out 20.
Will both teams score 40 or more points?
The yes on this is paying +1600, with the no at -10000. Look no further than last week’s Chargers and Browns game to see two teams that produced over 40 points. This bet could be fun if you’re feeling adventurous.
Which team will score the first touchdown?
The Bills are currently at -160, while the Titans sit at +120. This year, the Bills have scored the first TD in all five of their games, so that -160 is looking pretty enticing. Meanwhile, the Titans have scored the opening TD in just two out of five games.
Fireworks Are Expected
With wide receiver A.J. Brown seemingly back at full health, the Titans should get a boost in this one. The question is whether they’ll be able to match Buffalo’s potent offense. Either way, it should be a fun game with a lot of points scored.
