Seahawks vs Titans Predictions & Best Bets

Last Updated: Dec 20, 2023

With the Tennessee Titans officially eliminated from playoff contention at 5-8, this Week 16 matchup sets up as a trap game for the 7-7 Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks currently sit in the eighth position in the NFC, so it’s incredibly important that they take care of business as road favorites. After breaking a four-game losing streak with a last-minute victory over the Eagles, they’ll need to continue that momentum against the Titans if they’re going to claim a wild-card spot.

Let’s take a look at the NFL Week 16 odds for this game and find some value.

Seahawks vs Titans Predictions

Score Pick: Seahawks 20, Titans 17

Both teams have some uncertainty surrounding their starting quarterback for this game, which means we’ll have to pay close attention to injury news.

Although Geno Smith was active on Monday night against the Eagles, Drew Lock got the start and led the Seahawks to an upset win. Coach Pete Carroll hasn’t commented on his starter for Week 16 yet, but it’s possible that Lock could be under center again even if Smith is relatively healthy.

Meanwhile, Titans starter Will Levis is dealing with an ankle sprain that puts his Week 16 availability in question, so there’s also a chance we see Ryan Tannehill at quarterback this week.

It’s easy to write off the Titans since they have little to play for, but they own a 4-3 record at home and have been within three points in each of their last two losses. While the Seahawks should come away victorious, I think the Titans will keep this close.

Seahawks vs Titans Best Bets & Props

Seahawks (-135)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 2 units

Although I like the Seahawks on the spread, the moneyline odds aren’t that much worse, so I’m going to take the Seahawks straight up as my NFL bet of the day and not worry about the points.

The Titans are 5-8 and positioned for a top-10 pick, but they haven’t been a pushover, as five of their eight losses have been by one score. With their aforementioned 4-3 record at home, I think the Titans will be able to keep this close against a Seahawks team that is 2-5 on the road.

Under 42 (-110)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

The only thing giving me hesitation here is the fact that both teams’ defenses have struggled all year. Each ranks in the bottom half of the league in terms of points allowed per game.

However, we’re looking at a potential battle of backup quarterbacks leading two offenses that are also in the bottom half of the league in points scored per game. The Seahawks have put up 20 or fewer points in four of their last five games, and the Titans are only averaging 18.4 points for the season.

Seattle -2.5 (-110)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.5 units

I’m dropping down to a half unit here because of the Titans’ tendency to keep games within one score. The combination of their home record and the Seahawks’ abysmal road record makes me a little cautious as well.

While the Seahawks should be able to squeak out a victory since they’re a more talented team on both sides of the ball, this bet holds a lower priority for me. I can envision a scenario where the Seahawks have to rely on a late field goal to win by a point or two – especially if Lock is under center.

Seahawks vs Titans Same-Game Parlay

Seahawks vs Titans SGP (+222)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

  • Under 42 (-110)
  • Seahawks (-135)

This is a pretty simple one that gives us decent odds at +222. Whether you go by numbers or simply the motivation factor (I lean towards the former but won’t hold the latter against you), the Seahawks should come out of here with a straight-up victory.

Staying under 42 is a little trickier, as that’s a really low total when two bad defenses are involved, but the potential of a backup battle has me liking our chances.
