In rematch of playoff upset, reeling Ravens are touchdown favorites vs. Titans

The Ravens are touchdown favorites over the visiting Tennessee Titans ahead of their game Sunday night, according to Las Vegas sportsbooks.

The Ravens (6-3) opened as seven-point favorites, and the line has come down to 6½ in the day after their 23-17 loss to the New England Patriots. The Titans (6-3), who have lost three of their past four games, were blown out, 34-17, by the Indianapolis Colts in a “Thursday Night Football” matchup last week.

Sunday’s game marks the teams' first meeting since Tennessee upset the top-seeded Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium in a divisional-round playoff game last season. The Ravens were Super Bowl favorites and winners of 12 straight games heading into the 2019 postseason.

Their Week 11 game also has playoff implications. The Ravens are currently slotted into the AFC’s seventh seed, one spot ahead of the Titans. Four other teams are 6-3: the fourth-seeded Indianapolis Colts, whom the Ravens beat in Week 9; the fifth-seeded Oakland Raiders; the sixth-seeded Miami Dolphins; and the Cleveland Browns, whom the Ravens defeated in their season opener and will face again in Week 13.
