Tennessee Titans Vs. Los Angeles Chargers Betting Odds Breakdown

The Los Angeles Chargers and the Tennessee Titans will be meeting up in week 15 of the NFL season.

Los Angeles is coming into this game as the favorite at -2.5, and the over/under is sitting at 46.5 points.

Tennessee Titans Preview

Tennessee is coming off of a tough loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and it won’t be easy to bounce back against the Chargers.

Their game against Jacksonville was pretty ugly, but Derrick Henry was able to show why he is one of the top running backs in the entire NFL with 121 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries. He was probably the best part of this game for the Titans, and he could give Tennessee a chance to beat LA. However, it won’t be as easy because the Chargers’ run defense is pretty solid. Other than Derrick Henry, there wasn’t much to be impressed with. Especially their defense, which could not shut down Jacksonville.

The Jaguars aren’t the best offensive team in the NFL, so that just makes Tennessee’s performance that much worse. They were not able to stop Trevor Lawrence, who threw 30/42 with 368 yards and three touchdowns. The passing game of Jacksonville is what gave them the most problems, and it won’t get any easier against Justin Herbert. It’s very possible that something like this can happen again.

Los Angeles Chargers Preview

The Chargers got a close win over the Miami Dolphins their last time out, and they will be looking to keep it up against Tennessee.

Going into this game, LA should be looking to attack the pass defense of the Tennessee Titans. As said before, their pass defense was really bad, and Justin Herbert and the Chargers should be looking to keep exposing that weakness. Even in their last game, Herbert had a good game with 367 passing yards and one touchdown. If he can do that over the Dolphins, then he should have a good chance to do it against Tennessee.

Against Miami, LA shut down the offense of Miami. They were able to hold Tua Tagovailova to 10/28, along with 145 yards and one touchdown. That completion percentage is not good, and LA should be feeling good about themselves for being able to do that. They were able to stop Miami’s run game as well, but it will be much more difficult to do that against Derrick Henry. It’s hard to stop Derrick Henry, but if they can slow him down, they should have a good chance to win.

Winner Prediction: Los Angeles Chargers -2.5

It feels like Los Angeles is the better team going into this game, and you should expect them to show it. If they can slow down Derrick Henry, they should be able to get the win at home in week 15
