The Philadelphia Eagles still hold the best record in the NFL heading into Week 13, and they're once again set as sizable favorites when they host the Tennessee Titans in an interconference showdown.

The Titans fell to the Cincinnati Bengals last week, but they still hold a three game lead on the AFC South. They'll have their work cut out for them this week against the 10-1 Eagles, but to be fair, Philadelphia has shown some holes in recent weeks.

Let's dive into the odds for the game and then I'll give you my best bet.

Titans vs. Eagles Prediction and Pick

Until Jordan Davis returns for the Eagles, they're going to continue to struggle to stop the run. They rank in the bottom 10 in opponent yards per carry and they allowed the Green Bay Packers to average 5.0 yards per rush against them last week.

That's should be a cause for concern these week, considering they're taking on one of the most run-heavy teams in the NFL in the Titans. Derrick Henry should be primed to have a big day against the Philadelphia defense.

When it comes to the Titans defense, they aren't the most skilled or talented unit, but they're fantastic in a few key areas. Most notably, Tennessee sports the best third down defense in the NFL.

The Titans allow their opponents to convert on only 30.67% of third down opportunities against them. They're also fantastic in the red zone, ranking eighth in opponent red zone touchdown percentage. Forcing offenses to punt and keeping them from getting six points when they're in the red zone, goes a long way in winning games in the NFL.

I think Tennessee can run the ball and its defense can do enough to keep this game close.
