The Titans turned in a 9-7 record to finish 2nd overall in the AFC South. Subsequently, the Titans needed to clinch a Wild Card berth in order to compete in this year’ postseason. And with the Titans losing 3 out of the final 4 games of the season, it’s safe to say that Tennessee locked this spot up thanks to their early and mid-season success. Nevertheless, it should be mentioned that the Titans’ Week 17 upset over the Jaguars helped get them in there. But all in all, the Titans didn’t enjoy tremendous success this regular season, unlike the Pats. Should players take a shot on the underdog in hopes of racking up some nice parlay and picks on this Tennessee Titans vs. New England Patriots pairing?
All things considered; no, bettors shouldn’t take the Titans this weekend. Tennessee may have shocked the Kansas City this past weekend, but this isn’t Andy Reid we’re talking about. Bill Belichick is going to have this team more ‘coached up’ than ever before. Additionally, the story that ESPN put out earlier this week purporting the possibility of a breakup in New England has only added wood to the fire that is Brady and Belichick’s competitiveness. In short, players can expect to see a focused New England this Saturday. One that will close the door on every opportunity Tennessee has of winning this game.

The Patriots, unsurprisingly, finished the regular season with a 13-3 record to claim the AFC East once more. Additionally, with that brilliant record, the Pats managed to claim the No. 1 seed in the AFC. In short, the road to the Super Bowl will run through Foxborough once again. That is, if the Pats manage to pull off the win this Sunday. So, judging by their stats, how big of a blowout will New England deliver this Sunday?
Considering the type of defensive performance Tennessee delivered during the regular season, it’s looking like it will be a massive blowout. Because the Titans ranked 25th overall against the pass, football betting players can expect Tom Brady to have a massive outing Saturday. After all, the Brady-led Pats ranked No. 2 overall through the air this season.
