Titans’ Magical Run

After opening at +6200 odds before last season, Tennessee went on a tremendous run. They won five of their last seven regular season games, then won playoff games over New England and Baltimore, the NFL’s 1st-ranked defense and offense respectively. The Titans’ shortest Super Bowl odds came at this time, with Tennessee at +483 prior to conference championship weekend.

A magical season for the Titans came to an end in a 35-24 loss at Kansas City in the AFC Championship Game, but the future is now the focus in Nashville.

Turnover in Tennessee?

This was an encouraging year for the Titans, but success in one season doesn’t always guarantee success in the next. Fortunately for Tennessee, many of the key pieces from their exciting playoff run will return.

The most vital of those pieces is obviously Derrick Henry. He had 1,540 yards and 16 touchdowns on the ground in 2019, and added 2 receiving scores as well. He had 182 rushing yards in the playoff win over New England, and 195 in the win over Baltimore.

Much of the offensive line that paved the way for Henry, including Taylor Lewan and Roger Saffold, will be back as well.

Titans a Smart Super Bowl Bet?

This team is exciting, and it’s not just because of what they’ve already shown. Of course, they’re late 2019 regular season hot streak and subsequent playoff wins were great, but this team is set to make a major upgrade at the quarterback position. Ryan Tannehill was solid in taking over for Marcus Mariota this year, but the ceiling for this team is much higher.

They could go after one of the free agent passers on the market. That’s a group that could potentially include Tom Brady, Drew Brees, and Philip Rivers. No quarterback gets to free agency because they are perfect, and each of those passers has a downside, but each would still be a huge upgrade from Tannehill.

Tennessee could also go quarterback in the draft. They won’t get Joe Burrow or Tua Tagovailoa, but a few exciting names may still be available when the Titans are on the board. Jordan Love, Jacob Eason, and Jake Fromm are names that could end up in Nashville.

Much of this Titans team that reached the AFC Championship will be in place again next year. With an upgraded passing game, who knows what Mike Vrabel’s team could be capable of. At +2500, there’s a ton of value in Tennessee.
