Jeff Fisher will face his old club today as the Tennessee Titans square off against the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome. Kickoff in this afternoon inter-conference meeting between the Titans and Rams is set for 1:00pm ET; the game will be broadcast live on CBS. NFL Point Spreads from offshore bookmaker Sprortsbook.ag have Tennessee listed as a -3 against the spread favorite. Today's game total is presently set at 39.5 points.
Tennessee got off to a surprisingly fast start as it finished the first quarter of the season with a 3-1 record; however, it enters today's game with a 3-4 mark after suffering three consecutive losses before last weekend's bye.
The Titans can hang their hat on this, though: their three games skid came against the Chiefs, Seahawks, and 49ers, who are a combined 21-3 on the season.
St. Louis is a far less daunting assignment, even if it did turn in a spirited effort in Monday night's home loss to Seattle.
Many people will tout Jeff Fisher's ATS record as a dog, particularly against a less than overwhelming opponent like Tennessee, and it is a good one (88-57), but it is not a good one this season at 2-4.
St. Louis has not played well off a loss this season either, going 1-3 while losing by an average of 17.7 points per game. It should also be noted the only win in that group came against the Jaguars, who actually out-gained the Rams in a 20-34 loss at the Edward Jones Dome.
Finally, the Rams find themselves in what has been a precarious spot. According to Dr. Meyer's SDQL database, teams playing as a home dog off a Monday night game and against a team off a bye are 0-6 straight up and 1-5 against the spread since 1991.
Also from the SDQL: Teams playing as a home dog off a Monday night loss to a division opponent are 0-12 straight up and 0-11-1 since the 2008 season.
