Tennessee Titans Fantasy Spin

Adoree’ Jackson (foot) wasn’t listed on the Titans’ final injury report for Saturday’s Divisional Round game against the Ravens. Jackson returned to full participation Thursday after sitting out Tuesday and Wednesday’s practices. LB Kamalei Correa (illness), OG Nate Davis (illness), RB Dion Lewis (shoulder) and WR Kalif Raymond (concussion) were also removed from Tennessee’s injury report. LB Jayon Brown (shoulder) and WR Adam Humphries (ankle) have been ruled out while WR Cody Hollister (ankle) is questionable for Saturday’s 8:15 PM ET kickoff in Baltimore.

Baltimore Ravens Fantasy Spin

Mark Ingram (calf) is questionable for Saturday’s Divisional Round game against the Titans. He finished the week with a limited practice on Thursday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports Ingram is expected to play through his calf injury, though ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley isn’t as certain, calling him a “question mark” for Saturday’s 8:15 PM ET kickoff. If Ingram is out or limited, it would open up more carries for Gus Edwards and, to a lesser extent, Justice Hill.

NFL Betting Trends

Tennessee

The Titans are 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games and have covered the number in six of their last eight games overall.

Baltimore

The Ravens are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall and have covered seven of their last eight playoff games, although the one ATS loss was last year when they lost to the Chargers as a home favorite.

Prediction

Derrick Henry is going to be a problem for Baltimore, just as he was a problem for most opponents in the second half of the season. That said, the Ravens run defense is stout and Baltimore is well rested despite dealing with some injuries. The Ravens covered nine of their final 10 games in the regular season and won their final 12 games of the year outright. They’re 36-0 all-time as a double-digit favorite, which includes the playoffs, and are the only active franchise to never lose a game in that spot. As for Tennessee, since 1997, teams 9-7 or worse are 6-13 against the spread and 3-16 outright in the Divisional round. The Titans were able to knock off the Patriots last weekend in Foxborough but for as good as Henry was, the offense still only generated 14 points. Granted, the Patriots have a stout defense but everyone made it seem that Henry and the Titans took it to New England, which wasn’t the case. Unlike the Pats, the Ravens have not struggled offensively this season. Quite the opposite in fact, as Lamar Jackson put together a MVP-like season in leading the Ravens to the No. 1 seed. The Titans could give the Ravens a game for a quarter or two, but eventually Baltimore’s dominance will take over.
