NFL Week 5 Tuesday Night Betting Picks
Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Tiants
Tuesday 13th October, Nissan Stadium, 7.00pm (ET)
The Bills have started the season in hot form and after four weeks, they are one of the few remaining undefeated teams in the National Football League alongside Pittsburgh, Green Bay, Seattle and their opponents on Tuesday night, the Titans.
The Bills relied on their defense to help them record 10 wins for the first time since 1999 last season but their offense has been much improved this season. Through four games, they average 30.8 points per game, good for the fifth most in the league. Starting quarterback Josh Allen has been in MVP calibre form, racking up 331.5 passing yards per game and a 12-1 Touchdown-Interception ratio.
Devin Singletary has been solid but hasn’t set the world alight in the Buffalo running game so far this season, averaging just 53.3 rushing yards per game. However, we expect him to have a bigger game this week against a Titans side that has allowed 166.0 rushing yards per game this season, the second most of any team in the league.
The Titans have had an extremely disjointed season to date, having their Week 4 game against the Steelers postponed before having this game against the Bills pushed back to Tuesday due to positive COVID-19 tests. They haven’t played a game since their one point win over teh Vikings all the way back on the 28th of September, so they will certainly come into this game well rested.
The Titans have overcome the Broncos, Jaguars and Vikings in the opening three weeks but they’ll get their toughest test of the season so far against the 4-0 Bills. The Tuesday night clash will begin a tough three week stretch that is followed up with games against the Texans and Steelers.
While the Titans have struggled to stop the run this season, on the contrary, the Bills have struggled to stop the pass. Through four games, they have allowed 280.3 passing yards per game, the fourth most of any team. Back Ryan Tannehill to have a strong game, especially with over two weeks off to prepare.
Like the look of the over here. Last season, we couldn’t imagine that a total between these two sides would be anywhere near 53.5, but both teams seem to be playing more offense this season and less defense. The four Bills games this season have a total average of 55.75 points while the Titans last two games have both cleared the 60 point mark.
