Tennessee Titans at Los Angeles Rams Picks & SNF Betting Predictions

Tennessee Titans at Los Angeles Rams Picks & SNF Betting Predictions

The Tennessee Titans must forge on for the remainder of the 2021 season without the NFL’s best running back. It begins with a tall task, traveling west to face Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams in a marquee Sunday Night Football showdown for Week 9.

Henry, the league leader in rushing attempts, yards and touchdowns, broke his foot in Week 8 and is out for the year. The Rams, meanwhile, bolstered their defense with the addition of All-Pro LB Von Miller in a trade with the Broncos. Betting sites and most betting apps have Los Angeles at -7.5 in the latest Titans vs. Rams NFL spreads range, with the line unmoved since opening.

Check out the latest Rams vs. Titans odds ahead of the matchup in Week 9.

Titans vs. Rams Key Matchups

Titans RBs vs. Rams Front 7: No Derrick Henry, but Adrian Peterson is a physical back and Jeremy McNichols has been waiting for his chance. The Rams allow 4.9 yards per carry at home, fourth-most.

Tyler Higbee vs. Titans Defense: No unit has allowed fewer yards to tight ends than these Titans, just 27.5 per game. Higbee ranks third in receptions for the potent Rams offense.

Ryan Tannehill vs. Rams DBs: The Rams are one of three teams to have more INTs than pass TDs allowed (Bills and Saints). Tannehill has 10 TDs and seven INTs through eight games.

5 Key Titans vs. Rams Stats

1.0: The amount Rams QB Matthew Stafford is getting sacked per game, the lowest average in the league. The Titans rank a modest 17th in sacks produced.

7: Carries so far this season for McNichols, who will take over lead duties for Henry, who led the NFL in carries. Adrian Peterson was signed off the street this week and may immediately be used prominently.

77.6: The QBR for Matthew Stafford, the highest in the NFL by a wide margin. Tom Brady (69.4) and Aaron Rodgers (66.8) are the only others above 65.

368: The Titans have oddly produced a consistent 362-369 yards of offense in four of their eight games, including exactly 368 twice. Last week it was 340, but two of the other three games the number was far higher. The Rams have allowed 415-plus three times, under 355 every other game.

1,728: The amount of yards allowed to wide receivers by the Titans (216/game), nearly 200 more yards than any other team.


Titans vs. Rams Weather Forecast

Sunday night in L.A. will be as expected – no chance of rain, sunny during the day and clear at night. The high on Sunday is expected to be in the mid-70s. It won’t be that level at kickoff, but expect temps close to 70 and possibly the high 60s at SoFi Stadium.


Titans vs. Rams Player Props

Adrian Peterson, Over 35.5 Rushing Yards

Odds: -115 at DraftKings

Last year, Peterson signed with the Lions on Sept. 7 and played that same week. He rushed for 93 yards. He’ll be ready and the Titans will use him as long as he can hold up. The Rams’ three worst defensive efforts this season were all at home.

Matthew Stafford, Over 1.5 Rushing Yards

Odds: -110 at DraftKings

Stafford has rushed for over 1.5 yards just twice all season. But he does have 20 total attempts and the Titans rank average in rush yards allowed to QBs and allow nearly five rushes per game. He can gain two yards on that.

Cooper Kupp, Over 98.5 Receiving Yards

Odds: -115 at DraftKings

Copp leads NFL receivers in yards and touchdowns and is second to Tyreek Hill in receptions. The Titans have allowed far more yards to receivers than any other team.

Titans vs. Rams Moneyline

When it comes to NFL betting on the moneyline, favored Los Angeles is a sizeable -350 on the moneyline, while Tennessee is set at +270.

We don’t know how the Titans’ offense will react without Henry to rely on, but we can assume it won’t be the same. Henry’s production and sheer presence can’t be duplicated. The Rams are playing at the highest of levels, and the Titans’ defense has allowed 31 points in two of its last three games and 30-plus four times in eight. The Rams are too pricey to back, but that would be the side to take, if taking one.

Titans vs. Rams Point Spread

The Rams are favored by 7.5 points on a point-spread line that hasn’t moved since opening. L.A. has just one loss but it’s a modest 4-4 vs. the spread. That said, two of those non-covers came as a 16.5-point favorite. When they were favored by 7.5 vs. the Giants, the Rams won 38-11.

The hook, however, gives us pause. Tennessee has won and covered four straight. The addition of Adrian Peterson and the emergence of Jeremy McNichols may cushion the loss of Henry. The Titans’ pass weapons are elite. We think the Rams will win, but a backdoor cover keeps us off the spread.

Titans vs. Rams Totals

NFL sportsbooks have posted an Over/Under of 54 points for Sunday Night Football – that’s tied with Packers-Chiefs for the highest number of Week 9.

Three Titans games have finished between 63-65 points, while three Rams games have been over 57. But that means 10 combined games, five for each, have finished well below Monday’s total. The Rams’ defense adding LB Von Miller is huge and prime-time games have consistently been points-challenged. Look to the Under to add to your NFL picks lineup for Week 9. You can get Under 54 (-110) at DraftKings.
