The betting odds and point spread preview of the wild card NFL playoff game Tennessee Titans vs. San Diego Chargers on Sunday.

NFL playoffs point spread: Tennessee Titans vs. San Diego Chargers The wild card games from the NFL playoffs will end this week with the Sunday game between the Tennessee Titans (10-6) and the San Diego Chargers (11-5) and we are closing the betting previews with the final point spread and betting odds on this AFC playoff game. The Chargers visited the Titans on December 9th and San Diego won the game 23-17; this outcome gave plenty of material to the odds makers and the Tennessee Titans are now the underdog of the NFL playoff wild card games. While the point spread on the other three playoff games this weekend could be found around 3 points, at the online bookmaker Bodog Sports, the point spread on the Tennessee Titans vs. San Diego Chargers playoff game is currently favoring the Chargers -10 points, with total set at 39 points. The Titans are also the biggest betting odds underdog - Tennessee is listed with odds +400 to continue to the next stage in the NFL playoffs. The odds on the Chargers to beat the Titans are sitting at -600.

 The Tennessee Titans continue to battle injuries, with quarterback Vince Young still questionable for the playoff game, along with running back LenDale White, while wide receiver Roydell Williams is out for the wild card game on Sunday. Tennessee running back Chris Brown and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth have both been upgraded to probable and will likely be a game-day decision. At the Chargers only linebacker Marques Harris was listed as questionable for the NFL playoffs with hand injury. All the offensive injuries will even further drive down the Titans O-stats, posting 311.7 yards for only 18.8 points scored per game. Meanwhile the Chargers post offensively only 315.3 yards, but convert the yards extremely well, with 25.8 points per game or fifth in the NFL. The San Diego Chargers work the defense the same way - allowing 320.3 yards per game (14th in the league) but their opponent's offense manages to score only 17.8 points from those yards. The Titans are better defensively than offensively, allowing only 291.6 yards for 18.6 points.

 Tennessee won 11 of its last 15 games on the road and is 11-4 against the spread in its last 15 games on the road. But the Titans are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games when playing San Diego and have lost 5 of the last 5 games against the Chargers. San Diego has won 5 of its last 5 games and is 5-0 against the spread in its last 5 games. Keep in mind, however, that the total has gone UNDER in 4 of San Diego's last 6 games at home. The Chargers remain one of the favorite to win the 42nd Super Bowl with odds 9/1 at Bodog Sports and the Titans are the ultimate underdog to win the 2008 Super Bowl with odds 100/1 at the bookie.
