Tennessee Titans at Dallas Cowboys (-4.5)

Total: 40
PickCenter public consensus pick: 53 percent picked Dallas

Sharp: The Titans' offense hopes the bye will help them get back on track now that quarterback Marcus Mariota is healthy. Tennessee has the NFL's fifth-worst offense and is extremely run-heavy. That's a bad recipe for success against the Cowboys, because they have a highly underrated run defense, ranking No. 4 in the league. I've been extremely down on offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur's offense, which looks nothing like the diverse offenses of the Rams or 49ers after studying under Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan.
