Mims' Thursday Night Football Pick: 49ers at Titans, with George Kittle, Deebo Samuel props, alternative line
The NFL Thursday Night Football game has the Tennessee Titans playing the San Francisco 49ers. The numbers are Niners -3.0 with a total of 44. The money line is 49ers -170 & Titans +145. Tennessee is the home team.
Trends: The Niners and Titans are identical in contrasting categories. Niners are 5-2 on the road while the Titans are 5-2 at home. The Titans are 4-3 at home against the spread while the Niners are 4-3 on the road ATS. The last four head-to-head meetings the games have gone over.
Fifty-three percent of the action is on the Niners. 54% of the money is on the over.
Coaching Matchup: Kyle Shanahan over Mike Vrabel.
Prop Action: George Kittle over 70.5 receiving yards. The price is -115. He goes over. Deebo Samuel over 32.5 rushing yards. The price is -115. He goes over.
My take on the game: Niners are trying to maintain their wild card position. Titans have a one game lead in the AFC South. Titans have scored over twenty points just once in their last five games. The Niners have scored 30 or more in 4 of their last five. They scored 26 in the overtime game against the Bengals. Niners win minus the points and the game goes under.
Bonus Prop Pick: Alternate Away Team line for Niners total points scored is over 22.0 at -150. I am not thrilled at the price, but I love the number. The Niners score over twenty-two.
