It took a while to get here, but the Titans are finally getting back on the field for a special edition of Tuesday Night Football. With the Bills initially scheduled to face the Chiefs in two days, we won’t get a Thursday game this week, but rather a MNF doubleheader. But in the meantime, we do get an extra night of football. It’s an interesting spot for both teams, particularly Tennessee. Here’s what jumps out to me on DraftKings Sportsbook.
Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans
The Titans are somehow undefeated this season, but it’s a pretty tough 3-0 team to get behind in this spot. Prior to their outbreak, they’d been squeaking out games, winning by two in Denver, three against the Jags at home and one over the Vikings — which translates to 0-3 ATS. While time off generally does teams well, the Titans haven’t been able to practice because of their situation — unless you count a couple of unauthorized gatherings that likely helped spread the virus and put them in this mess. Ryan Tannehill will likely be without both Corey Davis and Adam Humphries because of the virus, and we won’t know until close to kickoff exactly who’s still missing from this team. There could be a lot more bodies unable to go. The 4-0 Bills got an extra couple of days to prep for this game, and have been on the field practicing, per usual. Buffalo is a solid 3-1 ATS thus far. Road teams are 42-33-1 ATS so far this season, so the Bills going on the road is meaningless here. Another plus matchup for Josh Allen should mean Tannehill and a limited offense trying to keep up against a solid Buffalo defense.
Smith was a bright spot in Tennessee’s offense in the early going, averaging 60.3 yards per game on 20 total targets. It’s the perfect situation for Smith to put up another big game, with the Titans down some pass-catchers, and in an elite TE matchup. Corey Davis and Adam Humphries are both unlikely to play after being placed on the COVID-19 list, and while A.J. Brown is expected to return from a knee injury, he hasn’t played since back in Week 1. The lack of bodies at WR should help funnel targets towards Smith, which the Bills have struggled to defend. Though four games, Buffalo is allowing an insane 7.8 receptions for 89.8 yards per game to the TE position. Look for Jonnu to take advantage.
