MIAMI over Tennessee by 6
The Titans overhauled their coaching staff in the offseason in hopes of bringing back the magic to QB Marcus Mariota. Enter new mentor Mike Vrabel who has promised to tailor his playbook around the options skills of Mariota, whose big payday comes next offseason – meaning he’ll be “all-in” this year. The problem today, though, figures to be Tennessee’s lack of success in the past against AFC opposition ( last eight games) and Miami’s 4-1 SU and mark in season openers the last five years. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase sits perhaps on the hottest seat in the NFL at the start of the season and needs this game like blood. With QB Ryan Tannehill back behind center and the heat and humidity in Miami this time of the year working in their favor today, look for 0-4 preseason teams that find themselves favored in Game One (read: Tennessee) to fall to 5-17 ATS.
