Titans-Chiefs Spread

The Titans-Chiefs spread was mostly steady at -5 in favor of Kansas City, however, the line was trending somewhat towards -4.5 at a handful of online sportsbooks.  Around 65 percent of the spread action was on KC.  Interestingly enough, around 70 percent of the money line action was going the Titans way as a large number of gamblers believed Tennessee could beat Kansas City outright in this game.  Note that Tennessee had lost 6 straight heading into last week’s victory over Houston, so this one has us a little dumbfounded. The Titans are only 3-7 Against The Spread in their last 10 games following a Straight Up win.  Nearly everyone betting the total was on the 42.5 OVER.

Kansas City has an easy entry into the post season by simply beating Tennessee this week.  They would win their division after opening the season as a pretty big underdog to do so.  Remarkably, the Titans (6-8) are still mathematically in the Playoffs equation.  They will need to win their final two games while Indianapolis and Jacksonville would each need to lose their final two games.

Matt Cassel returned from injury to throw for 184 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Rams last weekend.

"For a guy to come back after having an organ removed from his body, playing the next week, yeah it's definitely extraordinary," said running back Thomas Jones, who had 62 yards and a touchdown. "I'm proud of him, really proud of him."

In recent meetings, 2008 and 2007, the Titans crushed Kansas City.  This, however, is a different Chiefs team.

Some important betting trends for the Titans-Chiefs game include the following:

The Titans are 11-4 Against The Spread in their last 15 games as an underdog of 3.5-10.0.

The Titans are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 vs. AFC.  The Chiefs though are just 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. AFC.

The Titans are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and are 3-11 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.  The Chiefs, however, have not necessarily performed well against teams with losing records either.  They are just 4-9 ATS in home games when it comes to this particular trend. 

The Chiefs are 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 games as a favorite.

The Chiefs are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games in December.

Kansas City is just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win.
