“When someone says that it isn’t about the money, it is about the money.”

This quote is from H.L. Mencken, a satirical author from the late 1800s, and he has a myriad of relatable quotes that pertain to various social topics.

So, what does this have to do with Titans vs. Commanders?

Well, when you tell people you’re watching this game, they’re inevitably going to believe you are betting it. To which you may divert and say, “Oh no, I just love football.” I would then direct you back to that quote. There’s no one outside of Nashville or the capitol watching this game, unless it’s about the money. 

That’s why I am here, to serve as your tour guide into the uncharted territory that is this game. So lace up those boots, grab your furry hat, and let’s dive in.

The Titans are checking in at 2-2 on the season, with losses to the Bills and Giants and wins over the Colts and Raiders.

Tennessee has had success in scoring early and often, averaging nearly 19 points in the first half this season. Pair this with the fact that the Titans have scored a touchdown on every one of their opening drives, and you are looking at a team that pours it on quickly.

While Tennessee has shown they can explode early, its scoring tends to take a steep decline, with only seven second-half points this season. All seven of those points came in the third quarter of their Week 1 loss to New York. That means the Titans have played seven straight second-half quarters without scoring a point, but they’ve somehow won two of their last three games. 

The Commanders, on the other hand, have not had much success during any half of football. Their offense has seen some early troubles, only producing 36 points between their first two home games this season. Pick any offensive stat, and the Commanders are likely near the bottom of the league for it.

However, Washington’s defense is not completely hopeless. That unit does well in preventing third-down conversions, and it’s only allowing a touchdown 50% of the time the opposition enters the red zone.

Betting Picks

The Titans have made it clear they do not mess around early in the game. When they’re able to follow their pregame script, they march down the field with seemingly no opposition.

This all changes after halftime for Tennessee. Three scoreless second halves this season is a trend that I can not ignore.

As unappealing as it may seem, I will be putting my full trust in Carson Wentz & Co. late in this game.

Pick: Commanders 2H ML (+100) | Bet to -110
