The Colts won a thriller in Week 6, scoring a game-winning touchdown with less than a minute to go to avenge their previous loss to the Jaguars earlier in the season.
Will they be able to do the same against the rested Titans in Week 7? The lead in the AFC South is up for grabs in this all-important mid-season matchup.

Colts vs Titans Odds
As of Monday morning, the Colts are slight road underdogs against the Titans. Seeing as how Tennessee won its last matchup with Indianapolis in Week 4 and is coming off of a bye week here, I’m surprised that the Titans aren’t picked by 4.5 or 5 points.

Colts vs Titans Prediction
Titans 28, Colts 24
This is a prime spot for Derrick Henry and the Titans to take control of the AFC South. The Colts caught up last week with their win over the Jags, and if Indianapolis wins here, they would take sole possession of the top spot.
The Colts have struggled against the run so far this season and gave up 243 yards on the ground this past week against Jacksonville. Henry’s best game of the season came in Week 4 against Indy, so he should have no issues carving them up for 100-plus yards and a score.
At the same time, Tennessee bettors should take note of Indy’s improved passing game. The Titans’ defense ranks dead-last in passing yards allowed and 31st in touchdowns, and Matt Ryan just went for 389 yards and three touchdowns against the Jaguars.
The weaknesses of each defense will help drive the total up into the low 50s, and the Titans will emerge victorious in what is a must-win game for both teams.
