Matchup: Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars
Spread: Titans minus-3
Public consensus pick: 56 percent picked Titans
SuperContestants: 163-74 in favor of Titans
Public perception: This will probably be the least-bet game of the week (challenged only by games that have been off the board). Neither team is attractive to the public, as they both can look very competitive one week but also have a tendency to get blown out in ugly ways.
Wiseguys' view: The sharps like these kinds of teams better, as long as they can decipher when they're going to come with one of their good performances. Facing each other isn't as attractive as playing as potentially live 'dogs.
Tuley's Take: I've done well with the Jaguars, but I think they will have a letdown after nearly knocking off the Texans. Plus, I think the Titans should carry some momentum from their 37-3 rout of the Dolphins before their bye week. The pick: Pass (pool play: Titans, as they were my "Chalk Pick of the Week" on my original draft).
