  • Ryan Tannehill will start for the Titans in today's game against the Chargers.
  • While nobody truly knows whether Tannehill is an upgrade over Marcus Mariota, bettors have made their opinions clear.

The Tennessee Titans have had enough. After the team scored a combined 24 points over its last four games, including a bagel in last week’s matchup with the Broncos, head coach Mike Vrabel made a move at quarterback.

Ryan Tannehill will replace Marcus Mariota under center for today’s Chargers vs. Titans game, and bettors have had an interesting opinion regarding the change.

By analyzing movement of both the spread and over/under, as well as The Action Network’s public betting data, we can surmise just how the market’s sharpest bettors view this move for Tennessee.

Chargers vs. Titans Odds Movement, Sharp Report

As The Action Network’s Mark Gallant detailed in the Week 7 NFL Sharp Report, professionals have driven this point spread from a pick’em to Titans -2.5, indicating that wiseguys are bullish on Tannehill.

However, there could certainly be other factors at play behind the opinions of sharps regarding why they like Tennessee in this matchup.

Earlier this morning, smart money also hit the total, driving it up to 42.5, the highest it has been all week.

This provides even more insight, as not only are the pros moving the spread toward the Titans, they’ve also been pushing the over/under up as well — suggesting that not only is Tennessee the right side of this matchup, but Tannehill under center should result in a higher-scoring game.
