The Indianapolis Colts will travel to Nashville to play the Tennessee Titans in Week 10. This is an AFC South rivalry series that has become highly anticipated as the season has gone on, with the Colts and Titans in a tight race for the division lead.

The line has opened up as a near pick 'em, with the Titans currently getting a point at home on FanDuel Sportsbook. This is disrespectful towards Tennessee, who has been the more dominant team in 2020 and are coming off a big victory.

The Titans started 5-0 after reaching the AFC Championship game in 2019. They have defeated teams like the Buffalo Bills and Chicago Bears, with narrow losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals. The Colts also beat the Bears, but they haven't won against an above-.500 team otherwise, and the Baltimore Ravens seemed to expose them in Week 9.

From a statistical standpoint, these teams have relatively opposite strengths and weaknesses. Tennessee has moved the ball well most games, behind Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill, with the seventh most average points in the NFL this season at 29.0 per game. Their defense has been inconsistent, however, with Jadeveon Clowney now out indefinitely.

Indy has been tremendous on defense, backed by DeForest Buckner and Darius Leonard, but Philip Rivers and this offense have been hit or miss. One could argue this defense padded its stats against bad teams, however, and the Ravens and Cleveland Browns are proof of that. If Tennessee can move the ball like they usually do, they should win by more than a point at home.
