Indianapolis Colts Chances To Win vs Tennessee Titans

Despite losing five of the last six to the Tennessee Titans, the Colts are a favorite against the Titans.

I don't think being without Jonathan Taylor will be as impactful to the Colts as some believe. Indianapolis can beat the Titans as long as they find success in the passing game and limit Derrick Henry.

How The Colts Beat The Titans

The biggest goal for the Colts against the Titans will be finding a way to slow down Derrick Henry. In their first meeting earlier this season the Colts limited Henry to just 43 yards on 13 carries.

They'll also need a big game from the wide receiver group as a whole, but most importantly Josh Downs. Last week against the Bucs, Downs struggled to haul in targets, catching just 5 of 13.

How The Titans Beat The Colts

The Titans know the Colts well. With Will Levis now under center, the Colts won't be as familiar with what they've seen in the past.

In each of the last three games, Levis has thrown for under 200 yards. Indianapolis ranks 17th in the NFL regarding opponent pass yards per game. If The Titans want to pull off the upset, they'll likely need to do so through the air.

Colts vs Titans Prop Bets

Listed below are some props for this week's game worth looking into for both teams.

Colts vs Titans Player Props

šŸ“ Josh Downs Anytime TD Scorer+270 
šŸ“ Gardner Minshew O5.5 Rush Yds-105
āš”ļø Tyjae Spears 2+ TDs+3000
šŸ“ Michael Pittman O6.5 Recs-115
āš”ļø Nick Folk O6.5 Points+100
āœ… Last Verified:February 27, 2024

Josh Downs has not scored a touchdown since Week 7. With the Titans defense focusing on Michael Pittman Jr. and ranking 19th in pass yards allowed per game, I think we finally see Downs find the end zone again.

Gardner Minshew rushed for only 6 yards against the Bucs and has rushed for 5+ yards in three of the Colts' last five games. He's also had 3 or more rushing attempts in 4 of the last five games. With Tennessee ranking 10th in sack percentage, I think there's a solid chance we see him rushing out of the pocket more often.

Tyjae Spears is in a similar situation to Downs. The Colts' main focus will be on stopping Derrick Henry and DeAndre Hopkins. While Spears may not be used specifically on goal line attempts, he is a threat in both the rush and pass attack. He's second on the team in carries and rush yards, third in targets, and fifth in receiving yards. I think it's only a matter of time before he adds to his only touchdown on the season.

Pittman has logged 7+ catches in four of the last five games. He's also gone over that number in all but three games this season. With Jonathan Taylor out, I expect the passing game to be even more important against the Titans.

Titans kicker Nick Folk is averaging 7.5 points per game, but has only recorded 7+ points in one of the last five games. However, the Indianapolis defense is 17th in red-zone scoring percentage and 27th in points allowed per game.

šŸˆ Colts Points Band 21-30+145
šŸˆ Titans O2.5 TDs+140
šŸˆ Titans O9.5 1st Half Points-148
šŸˆ Both Teams to Lose Fumble+125
āœ… Last Verified:February 27, 2024

The Colts are averaging 24.5 points per game, while the Titans are allowing just 20.4 points per contest. With Indianapolis allowing 24.4 points per game, I think we see a close contest that could go either way ending at 24-27 or a similar final score.

The Titans are one of the worst teams in the league averaging just 9.3 firsts-half points per game. But against an Indianapolis defense that ranks 27th in points allowed, I think we see them go over that number.

Both teams are averaging more than 1 turnover a game and 1 take away a game. Indianapolis has fumbled 14 times and lost 8, while the Titans have fumbled 8 times and lost four. Both teams have forced more than 10 fumbles with Tennessee at 11 and the Colts at 17.

Some of the best games ever played between the Colts and Titans came during Peyton Manning's time in Indianapolis. However, despite his success during his career with the Colts, the Titans proved to be a major challenge early in his career.

  • 1999 AFC Divisional Round (Jan. 16, 2000) Peyton Manning played his first ever playoff game against the Titans. Things didn't go well for the Colts, who were an impressive 13-3 in only Manning's second year, losing 19-16. It would be the first of three consecutive losses to the Titans to start Manning's career.
  • Week 17, 2011-12: Titans vs Colts In Peyton Manning's final year with the Colts, the tide had shifted. Indianapolis faced off against the Titans with the division already secured. Despite the lack of playoff implications, both teams put on yet another classic. The Colts would win the game 23-20 thanks to an Adam Vinatieri field goal as time expired.
  • Week 13, 2006: Colts vs Titans To come away with a victory over the Colts, which they had not done since December 2002, the Titans would need a miracle. That's exactly what happened as Rob Bironas made the longest kick in franchise history from 60 yards out to beat the Colts 20-17.
