Tuesday Night DFS Single Game Breakdown: Bills at Titans

Whatever you do, don't call Tuesday night's Bills-Titans game the COVID Bowl. Don't do it. It's highly inappropriate. It is not, by any means, the COVID Bowl.

Let's jump into the ways we can bring down a weird little Tuesday night single-contest tournament.

Below is a breakdown of single-game DFS contests on FanDuel and DraftKings for the Week 5 Tuesday Night Football matchup. Constructing single-game lineups requires some imagination, especially for large-field tournament purposes. We want to create a lineup that reflects a certain kind of game script, choosing players who would thrive—or at least have the chance to thrive—if their teams got out to a lead or were left chasing points in the second half. There’s also the neutral script that doesn't tend to inflate opportunity for any one player or team.

Understanding the likelihood of each scenario and piecing together a roster that would score a bunch of points in such a scenario is key to success in these single-game contests.

Remember: For the captain spot on DraftKings, the price (and fantasy points awarded) are multiplied by 1.5. On FanDuel, the prices are the same throughout, but the MVP slot receives 1.5 times the fantasy point value of the other roster spots.

Vegas Spread And Total

The over/under for this game sits at 51.5 point. The Bills, three point favorites, have an implied total of 27.5 points. Tennessee's implied total is 24. Though the Titans prefer a ball-control, grind-it-out approach, Buffalo has found itself in some shootouts through the season's first month. The Bills might give the Titans no choice but to score a bunch of Tuesday night points. Let us pray.
