If there's anyone in the world qualified to talk about playing running back for the Tennessee Titans, it's Eddie George.

The franchise's all-time leading rusher, with 10,009 yards, George also lent his talents to FanDuel Sportsbook for their official launch in the state of Tennessee.

To celebrate, FanDuel is offering a special odds boost for Tennessee customers in Week 9. The bet, which can be found at this link, is whether or not Derrick Henry can rush for 100 yards against the Chicago Bears.

Formerly priced with +100 odds, FanDuel Sportsbook has boosted it up to +130 for Tennessee customers.

But can Henry hit the century mark for the fifth time this season? George thinks so.

I think he can — you look at the statistics, [the Bears] are giving up 120 yards per game on the ground, it's their pass rush that's really deadly. I'm taking that bet all day long. I might double down on it.

Of course, it's no wonder that George is so high on Henry. He revealed in an interview with The Duel that Henry is the back that reminds him most of himself in the NFL today.

"I don't have any 99-yard runs, so maybe I can't speak to the speed, but in terms of the size and tenacity," George explained, "it's Derrick Henry."

That's about the highest praise you can ask for from a guy who had 36 100-yard games of his own at the NFL level.

And if you're looking to get a bet in on Thursday Night Football while you wait for the Titans' game on Sunday? George likes the Packers to win.

Sports betting is officially live in Tennessee, and FanDuel has you covered with all the NFL odds you need.
