It's time for Monday Night Football and a look at the latest Titans vs Bills odds.
The two squads got off to very different starts in Week 1. The Bills delivered a dominating win over the defending champion Los Angeles Rams, while the Titans coughed up a 13-point lead at home before losing to the New York Giants.
Can Tennessee turn the tides, or will Buffalo keep it rolling in Week 2?

After how they handled themselves during the season opener in Los Angeles – handing a 31-10 beating to the defending Super Bowl champion Rams – it's no surprise the Bills enter the second week of the season as heavy favorites.
The Titans, conversely, enter the week after losing 21-20 in one of the biggest stunners of opening weekend to the Giants.

Titans vs Bills Prediction
There's a lot to sift through in looking at Titans vs Bills odds.
The Bills came out like a house on fire in Week 1, and it's hard to imagine a drastic fall-off in their home opener.
Josh Allen showcased why he is a leading MVP candidate, leading a Buffalo second-half scoring barrage. Can he capitalize against a Titans defense that conceded 21-second-half points to the Giants?
It wasn't all doom and gloom for the Tennessee D in Week 1. In fact, the Titans and Bills sacked the opposing quarterback a combined 12 times – the Bills tied the Chargers and Steelers for the highest sack total with 7, while the Titans tied the Chiefs for the fourth-highest total at 5.
The Bills had the league's top pass defense in 2021 but ranged more toward the middle of the pack against the run, allowing 112.5 per contest. That could give Derrick Henry enough daylight to help Tennessee move the ball and grind down the clock.
Buffalo has more talent on both sides of the ball, but Tennesse is a battle-tested unit that won't get embarrassed in prime time.
Prediction: Tennessee +9.5
