Tennessee vs. Jacksonville Monday Night NFL Football PIcks & Vegas Betting Odds: The Tennessee Titans (3-2) are undefeated on the road this NFL picks season and the Vegas odds makers have installed them as-3(-110) point NFL predictions favorites on the road against the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2) in this week six Monday Night Football picks match-up on the NFL schedule.
These two AFC South opponents are familiar with each other and have played on even terms throughout their NFL picks history, with Tennessee holding an edge in NFL predictions victories, 11-7, since 2001.
Tennessee has had an up-and-down NFL picks season, winning one week, losing the next. As usual, the Titans are a strong running team behind Chris Johnson’s 485 yards and 6 TDs, but Javon Ringer and Vince Young have also proved dangerous running options too. The passing game, though mainly avoiding turnovers, has struggled to find traction so far this NFL predictions season. Nate Washington leads all pass-catchers with 215 yards while Young has struggled at times with his accuracy but has thrown 6 touchdown passes. Defensively this NFL picks season, the Titans have gotten after the quarterback with 22 sacks, with defensive ends Jason Babin and David Ball accounted for half the team’s total. They have had difficulty, at times, defending the pass this NFL predictions season but this week’s Monday Night Football picks matchup should feature very little throwing.
With the Titans possess the sixth best running attack this NFL predictions season, the Jaguars are fourth in the NFL. Maurice Jones-Drew, with 406 yards rushing, leads the running game with scrambling support from quarterback David Garrard. Surprisingly, Garrard has also thrown 9 TD passes, 5 to tight end Mercedes Lewis, who must be accounted for by Tennessee’s safeties or linebackers in tonight's Monday Night Football picks contest. While Mike Sims-Walker is off to a slow start, Mike Thomas has emerged as the leading receiver this NFL predictions season. On defense, the Jags can’t seem to rush the passer or defend the pass and that has been a problem in their losses.
These two teams mirror each other, strong running game, scrambling quarterbacks, physical defenses that give-up too many passing plays. This Monday Night football picks contest should be close, as the Las Vegas spread suggests, with the Jags pulling-off the NFL picks upset and covering the Vegas spread set by NFL odds makers at home.
