Titans (9-7) at Patriots (12-4)
Saturday 1/4, 8:15pm EST
- The New England Patriots (12-4) host the Tennessee Titans (9-7) in the Wild Card Round of the AFC Playoffs. The Patriots enter this matchup with the following records: 12-4 overall, 9-7 against the spread, 6-2 at home (5-3 ATS) and they were the favorites in all 16 of their regular-season games. The Titans enter this matchup with the following records: 9-7 overall, 8-7-1 against the spread, 5-3 on the road (5-3 ATS) and 3-3 as underdogs (3-3 ATS).
- As of Saturday morning, just under 650 votes have been cast on our app's NFL feed, and it's clear that the Titans (+5.5) are receiving quite a bit of interest, as indicated by the fact that 32.1% of BetQL users labeled them as the best underdog bet against the spread out of the four Wild Card options.
- Further, just 51% of public tickets have been wagered on the Patriots (-5.5) at home, which is shocking, given their history. For instance, Tom Brady has more playoff wins under his belt than every other quarterback in the playoffs combined. Think about that for a second.
- The BetQL Community is leaning towards New England, but not in an overwhelming fashion. The Patriots have attracted 63% of our Community Likes.
