Things got heated the last time the Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens faced off and we’ll get a rematch between the two teams on Sunday in the Wild Card Round. Tennessee is set to host Baltimore at 1:05 p.m. ET.

So where are sports bettors going as we get closer to game time? Let’s take a look. All odds and info were provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.

Point Spread

The Ravens are favored by 3 points but the Titans command 55 percent of the handle and 51 percent of the total bets on point spread wagers.

Is the public right?

The money is split pretty evenly here but the public seems to be leaning in the right direction. Baltimore is an impressive 10-6 against the spread but has failed to cover the last two times it faced Tennessee. The Ravens have been less one-dimensional in recent weeks but remain one of the worst passing teams in the NFL.

Over/Under

The point total is installed at 54.5 and 67 percent of the handle is on the over. The public has placed 63 percent of the total bets on the over.

Is the public right?

Tennessee scored the fourth-most points in the NFL while Baltimore comes in at seventh. Both teams rank inside the top three in rushing yards and scores so it makes sense that this matchup has the highest point total in Sunday’s trio of Wild Card games.

Moneyline

Baltimore is -177 on the moneyline but isn’t getting most of the backing from bettors. The public has placed 59 percent of the handle and total bets on the Titans (+155).

Is the public right?

The Titans have won two straight against the Ravens and are underdogs by a narrow margin so it makes a lot of sense to bet on them to win a third straight matchup on their home turf. Tennessee has made a deep playoff run and wasn’t far off from reaching the Super Bowl last year while the Ravens haven’t won a playoff game yet in the Jackson era.
