The Chargers are 6.5-point favorites and the over-under for total points scored is 45 in the latest Chargers vs. Titans odds. Before you make any Chargers vs. Titans picks, check out what SportsLine expert R.J. White has to say.
White was SportsLine’s most profitable NFL analyst last season and returned $100 bettors a profit of nearly $2,000. The renowned NFL prognosticator has cashed big in the prestigious Las Vegas SuperContest two of the past three years and now turned his eye toward Sunday’s game. White has a strong history of success in handicapping these teams, which includes an impressive 13-7 mark on spread picks for or against the Titans during the past two seasons. Anyone who has followed him is way, way up.Titans vs Chargers
In Week 4, White advised SportsLine members that the Titans were in a value position as a 3.5-point home underdog against the Eagles. He recommended fading public sentiment on Philadelphia, and his prediction paid off when Titans rallied for a 26-23 overtime victory.
Now, he has scrutinized Chargers vs. Titans from every possible angle to reveal a strong point-spread pick that he’s sharing only at SportsLine.
White knows both clubs should be motivated to give an inspired performance because the outcome will have an impact on their respective division races. The Chargers were heavy favorites in what was expected to be a down year for the AFC West. Instead, they are looking to keep pace with the surging Chiefs, who beat them in Week 1 in Los Angeles. Their other loss came to the Rams, who are now the 2019 Super Bowl favorites.
But Los Angeles has looked strong in winning its past three and appears to be improving on a weekly basis. The Chargers have defeated the Raiders and Browns in their past two games by a combined score of 64-24. Melvin Gordon rushed for 132 yards and three touchdowns last week in 38-14 victory at Cleveland. The defense had perhaps its best outing of the season, getting to Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield for five sacks while also intercepting two passes.
Even so, the Chargers will need a similar effort to cover the spread against a Titans club that is looking to restore some momentum of their own.
Following a season-opening loss to the Dolphins, Tennessee responded with three consecutive impressive victories, including a 9-6 victory at Jacksonville as a 10-point underdog. The Titans hit a stumbling block with a 13-12 loss at Buffalo and had their worst performance of the season last week in a shutout loss to Baltimore. Still, they are 6-2 against the spread when coming off a loss and 9-3 ATS in their past 12 against opponents with winning records.
We can tell you White is leaning toward the Over, but he has scrutinized this matchup from every angle, crunched the stats, and found a crucial X-factor that causes one side of the spread to hit hard. It’s available only at SportsLine.
