After going 12-5 in the regular season, the Tennessee Titans earned the No. 1 seed in the AFC and a first-round bye. Despite their finish atop the standings, it was a turbulent year.
Derrick Henry went down in the middle of the season and has yet to return. The year also wasn’t kind to Ryan Tannehill, who posted one of the worst statistical seasons of his career. The veteran quarterback recorded 21 touchdowns and 14 interceptions — the second-most he’s thrown in a single season.
With that said, Tannehill did achieve a relatively high completion percentage, and with talented receivers at his disposal, the Titans remain a threat to score through the air.
Let’s take a closer look at some of our favorite Tannehill props for their Divisional Round matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

If you have some pause here, I understand it. Tannehill has only gone over this prop six times this season, and more than half of those occasions came in the first half of the season.

However, one such instance came in Week 18, when Tannehill had a healthy A.J. Brown and Julio Jones at his disposal — much like he will this weekend. His games with both receivers available this season were seriously limited, which accounts for at least part of the reason why he’s had especially low yardage totals.
Moreover, with Henry potentially making his return this weekend, the Titans will have more freedom to diversify their offensive gameplan and keep the Cincinnati defense on its toes.

If you’re planning on betting the Over on Tannehill’s passing prop, consider taking the Over here as well. Even if Tannehill just barely hits the Over on his passing prop and finishes with 238 yards through the air, he would need just 19 rushing yards — a mark he’s hit seven times this season — to hit the Over on this prop.
The Bengals have been good against the run this season, but quarterbacks are always viable to break loose for a considerable gain any given Sunday. Derek Carr isn’t exactly the most mobile quarterback, and he still had a 20-yard rush against Cincinnati last week.
If you’re still feeling hesitant, consider that Tannehill has logged at least 257 passing yards — enough to cover this prop — six different times this season. Any positive rushing yards he posts against the Bengals are essentially just a bonus to help you hit here, which makes this our NFL bet of the day.

OVER 0.5 Interceptions (+105) at BetMGM
Wager: 0.5 Units
Tannehill has thrown 14 interceptions this season, highlighting his struggles as a passer this year. He’s been more efficient as of late, throwing just one over his last five appearances, but the fact that he threw 13 over his first 12 is a bit concerning.
The Cincinnati defense has recorded 13 interceptions on the season, which is right around the league average. There’s a good chance that Tannehill won’t throw a pick in this game, but the value in getting him at (+105) odds to record at least one is hard to pass up.
