Titans vs Colts Odds, Prediction
The latest Titans vs. Colts odds for NFL Week 13 have Indianapolis installed as 1-point favorites on the spread with a game total of 41.5 to 42.5 depending on the sportsbook. I'm passing on the spread and total for this matchup, however, as I'm target a Gardner Minshew player prop for my NFL pick.
The Colts (6-5) enter this matchup on a three-game winning streak and tied for second in the AFC South with the Texans. Will Levis and the Titans (4-7) look to stay perfect at home (excluding their "home" loss in London) and keep their playoff hopes alive. They find themselves in the basement of the AFC South, but there is plenty of time to crawl out and make their way into the playoff conversation.
Indianapolis triumphed in the first meeting between these teams in Week 5 by the score of 23-16. Will Tennessee exact revenge on home turf? Find out in my NFL Week 13 betting preview, which includes my Titans vs. Colts prediction.

Titans vs Colts Pick
Zack Moss owned the Titans the last time these teams met as Jonathon Taylor’s return wasn’t enough to keep Moss from tallying 165 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 23 attempts. Taylor won’t be active for this matchup so Moss’ previous success could play a huge role in this game.
The Colts' offensive line is not one to mess with; they have the fifth-highest run block unit in the NFL, according to PFF. If the Colts go up early, they will have no problem eating up the clock.

The Titans’ game plan also revolves around the run game. They just have much more success when Derrick Henry touches the ball often. Case in point: they have yet to lose a game where Henry gets at least 20 touches.
Tennessee's plan of attack hasn’t strayed from previous years: gain chunks, eat the clock and hopefully be in the lead when the clock hits 0:00.
Both offenses lack explosiveness as they rank 17th and 20th for passes that go at least 20 yards. Gardner Minshew is averaging just over 6.5 yards per pass attempt, while Will Levis is averaging just under seven. Neither quarterback has shown an ability to light up the passing game, and I don’t expect much to change on Sunday.
The Colts are up against a less-than-stellar Titans offense. Not only are they young, but they have yet to show that they can put up big numbers consistently. Tennessee has scored at least 20 points only three times this season.
Indianapolis won’t have to rely on a prolific pass game to come out on top. With Moss’ previous success against Tennessee and Minshew’s mediocrity, the Indy game plan should be simple: run the ball early and run the ball often.
Pick: Gardner Minshew Under 32.5 Pass Attempts (-105; BetMGM).
