The Tennessee Titans are set to face the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. Fresh off stunning the New England Patriots, the Titans will travel to Baltimore to play against the AFC's No. 1 seed and Super Bowl-favorite Baltimore Ravens.

The Titans are 10-point underdogs and most experts are taking the Ravens. However, for those looking for an alternate way to wager on the Sunday's game, here are four prop bets to consider.

1. Ryan Tannehill under 220.5 passing yards (-112)

We all saw how Derrick Henry tore through the Patriots' run defense last week. Meanwhile, Ryan Tannehill had just 15 pass attempts in their 20-13 win. It's hard to imagine that Tennessee's gameplan will be much different against the Ravens, who rank No. 19 in rush defense DVOA. Considering that the Ravens' secondary is ranked No. 4 in DVOA, it will be that much tougher for Tannehill to go over 220.5 passing yards in this game.

2. Derrick Henry over 100.5 rushing and receiving yards (-112)

Derrick Henry has gone over a combined 100 yards rushing and receiving in six of his last seven games. Even if the Titans fall behind early, they are still probably going to rely on Henry on offense, just as they did against the Patriots. While the Ravens are going to try to do anything they can to stop him, no one in the NFL has found a way to contain Henry in the second half of the season.

3. Nick Boyle over 13.5 receiving yards (+108)

Nick Boyle is far from the best-known player on the Ravens' offense, but he's played 69.5% of snaps and is a critical part of their unique system. The Titans were the sixth-worst team by fantasy points allowed to tight ends this season, allowing 11.5 yards per catch in the process. Boyle isn't a target machine, but he stands a good chance to chip in for more than 13 receiving yards.

4. AJ Brown under 60.5 receiving yards (-118)

AJ Brown hardly had a look in the Titans' win over the Patriots, catching just 1 pass for 4 yards with just 1 target. Brown is talented and went over 1,000 yards this season, but there's just not much room for him in the Titans' strategy for this weekend. Brown excels at getting downfield to catch deep balls, but the Ravens boast one of the best groups of safeties and cornerbacks in the NFL with Earl Thomas, Marlon Humphrey, and Brandon Carr. Getting to 60 yards could be a struggle for Brown on Saturday.
