  • Over 78.5 -115
  • Under 78.5 -115

Jonathan Taylor has been nothing short of elite this season as the second-leading rusher in the NFL. However, in his last game against the Titans, he failed to go Over 78.5 yards.

The Titans run defense is one of the best in the league as they allow teams to average 103.3 yards per game.

The Titans have allowed just one opposing running back to go Over the 78.5 mark this season and that was James Robinson who went for 149 rushing yards. Robinson hit the Over mark by attacking the left side.

Robinson saw 10 of 18 carries go to the left and had six of them go for 5+ yards. His longest run of the day also went to the left at 58 yards.

One thing to note is that the Colts starting left guard, Quenton Nelson, was hurt early on during their Week 3 matchup against the Titans. Nelson made his return to action in Week 7 and Taylor was able to break free for 107 rushing yards.

With Nelson now back on the front lines and Taylor clearly benefiting from it, he could be in line for a nice performance as well.

  • Over 103.5 -115
  • Under 103.5 -115

Derrick Henry has proven his dominance this season with five of his seven games seeing over 110 rushing yards. In his Week 3 matchup against the Colts, Henry crushed the Over with 113 rushing yards.

The Colts run defense has been average this season as they have allowed teams to average 111 rushing yards per game this season. Also, aside from Henry, they have allowed just one other running back to rush for over 100 yards which came at the hands of San Francisco 49ers running back, Elijah Mitchell, who went for 107.

In Henry’s last game against the Colts, he also attacked the left side of the field as his five longest runs of the game all came while running to the left.

Elijah Mitchell saw a similar game plan where 10 of his 18 carries either started from the left hash mark or shifted to the left side of the field. Mitchell had three runs of 12+ yards come from the left.

It is also worth noting that the Titans will be without Julio Jones which could add more touches to Henry’s plate helping him hit the Over on his NFL odds.
