NFL Picks: St Louis Rams vs Tennessee Titans NFL Betting Odds Week 14: Vince Young’s historic run came to an end last week against the undefeated Indianapolis Colts, 27-17. The good news is that today, the (5-7) Tennessee Titans [-13] will likely start another win streak, as they host the lowly (1-11) St Louis Rams [+13]. This game’s opening kickoff is slated for 4:10 PM ET (1:10 PM PT) and it will be broadcasted live from LP Field in HD on FOX.
The last time the Rams and the Titans got together, Marc Bulger threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns, as St Louis barely got passed Tennessee, 31-27 in 2005. According top NFL Odds makers at SBGGLOBAL.com, the OVER/UNDER for this Rams-Titans contest is set at a combined total of 41 points.
For the Rams, this could be a very long day for a defense that’s ranked among the worst against the run. With a guy like Chris Johnson flying out of the backfield and a defense that’s allows 146.2 rushing yards per game, things can get out of hand very quickly here today.
Not to mention the fact that the Rams are also among the worst in average points allowed (26.2) and total yards yielded (363.7). The only thing the Rams really have going for themselves right now can be described in two words: Stephen Jackson.
Last week, the NFL’s second leading rusher recorded his fifth 100-yard game in six weeks with his 112 yards on 28 carried. Nevertheless like I said, he’s the only thing going right for the Rams this year.
"We all know Steven's the featured guy here, so I don't think we're going to drive anybody out of what they do stopping the run," said coach Steve Spagnuolo. "But we'll find other ways to move the ball downfield."
For the Titans, last week’s loss sets them back in their goal to reach the postseason. However, they’re still in the race, currently trailing Jacksonville by two games in the AFC’s wild card standings.
"Realistically, most of it's out of our control," said coach Jeff Fisher, who is searching for his third straight winning season. "We need to win out, and they're aware of that. The only chance we've got is to win the next one."
