It’s been an impressive start to the NFL season considering the lack of positive COVID-19 tests surrounding both players and team personnel.
However, according to an NFL statement released Tuesday morning, the Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings are suspending in-person activities after eight people within the Titans organization tested positive for COVID-19.
Minnesota played Tennessee on Sunday, which is why the Vikings are also avoiding in-person contact.
ESPN’s Dianna Russini is reporting that the Titans will not be allowed back into their facilities until Saturday, meaning all preparation will have to be done remotely. That’s certainly not ideal from a performance standpoint.
The Vikings, meanwhile, won’t return to their facility until their results are in as reported by ESPN’s Dan Graziano.
The betting market has clearly taken notice of the Titans’ outbreak. In the immediate aftermath of the news, some sportsbooks took down odds for their Week 4 matchup against the Steelers altogether, while moved the line toward Pittsburgh.

While it’s been reported that three of the Titans’ eight positive tests are players, we don’t yet know who those players are, so the over/under for Sunday’s game has yet to move.
At the time of writing, 84% of all early spread bets have come in on Pittsburgh and don’t expect that to change until we learn more about Tennessee’s COVID situation.
