Cooper Kupp Over 7.5 Receptions (-105)
There hasn’t been a better wide receiver than Kupp this season. He leads the NFL in receiving yards with 924, over 100 more yards than Deebo Samuel in second place. Kupp has caught 63 of his 90 targets (70 percent) this season, both currently second in the NFL. More importantly, Kupp has averaged 7.9 receptions per game this season, catching seven or more in all but one game. Tonight he faces a Titans team that has allowed the most receptions to wide receivers, giving up 16.5 per game this season. They have given up 17 or more receptions to wide receivers in three straight games. As Matthew Stafford’s favorite weapon, Kupp will hit the over on this prop bet early in the fourth quarter.
Ryan Tannehill Under 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-115)
When he has faced the Indianapolis Colts this season, Tannehill has been near unstoppable. In those two games, Tannehill had six passing touchdowns and a 10 percent touchdown rate. By comparison, Tannehill has thrown only four touchdowns in the other six games this season, with a two percent touchdown rate in those games. Unfortunately for Tannehill, the Rams have given up the second-fewest passing touchdowns this season. They have held quarterbacks to only 1.1 passing touchdowns per game this season, giving up two or more in only three games. Furthermore, the Rams have allowed a total of three passing touchdowns over the past three weeks. While the Titans won’t have Derrick Henry for this game, don’t expect Tannehill to pick up the scoring slack.
Robert Woods to Score an Anytime Touchdown (+105)
While the veteran receiver got off to a slow start this season, Woods has picked up his play lately. After scoring only one touchdown in the first three games this season, Woods has scored four touchdowns over the past five games. More importantly, he has scored three touchdowns over the past three weeks, including two last week. Not only is Woods a threat to score in the passing game, but on the ground as well. Meanwhile, the Titans have given up the most touchdowns to wide receivers entering Week 9, giving up 1.5 per game. They have given up two or more touchdowns to wide receivers in over half their games this season. Expect the veteran to keep up his recent play and find the end zone at least tonight.
A.J. Brown Over 5.5 Receptions (-145)
Earlier this season, Brown dealt with a hamstring issue that severely impacted his play. However, once fully healthy, Brown has played lights out. Over the past three weeks, Brown has averaged 8.3 receptions per game. He had at least seven receptions in each of those games, including a career-high 10 last week. While the Rams have a talented defense on paper, they have struggled against wide receivers this season. They have allowed the fifth-most receptions to wide receivers this season, giving up 15 receptions per game. Furthermore, the Rams have given up 18 or more receptions to wide receivers in almost half their games this season. With Henry out of the lineup for tonight’s game, expect the Titans to call Brown’s number early and often.
Tyler Higbee Under 37.5 Receiving Yards (-110)
After finishing with a season-high 68 receiving yards in Week 1, Higbee has been very inconsistent. He has averaged 34.1 receiving yards per game this season, but only 29.3 receiving yards per game since Week 1. Higbee had under 37 receiving yards in over half the games this season, including four of the past five contests. Meanwhile, the Titans have held tight ends to the fewest receiving yards this season, giving up only 27.5 per game to the position. They have held tight ends under 27 receiving yards in all but two games this season. In Week 7, the Titans held Future Hall of Famer Travis Kelce to only 65 receiving yards on seven receptions. They will have no trouble keeping Higbee under 37.5 receiving yards in this game.
