Tennessee Titans Betting Odds

Titans 2020 odds & game schedule

With Ryan Tannehill under center and league-leading rusher Derrick Henry in the backfield, the Tennessee Titans are coming off of one of the most successful seasons in franchise history.

Last year, the Titans started just 2-4, but finished the regular season 9-7. The Titans then upset the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens in the playoffs to make the AFC Championship game. If you had bet the Titans as an underdog in either game, you would have done well.

In their next playoff game, the Titans had a lead against the favored Kansas City Chiefs, though they ultimately fell to the eventual Super Bowl champions. If you had bet the Titans to make the AFC Championship game before the season started, you would have done even better.

It was the third time in Tennessee’s history the team made the conference championship, marking one of the Titans’ best seasons since making the Super Bowl themselves in 1999. With a lot of excitement surrounding Tennessee’s NFL franchise, here is your NFL betting guide to Titans football in 2020-21.

  • Moneyline: a bet on a team to win outright
  • Point spread: a bet on a team to cover the spread set by the sportsbook
  • Over/under: a bet that the total number of points scored will be over or under an amount set by the sportsbook
  • Props: a kind of side bet on how teams or players will perform, regardless of the game’s results (e.g., a bet on how many touchdowns a quarterback will throw)
  • Parlays: a bet that combines two or more wagers, all of which much be winners for the bet to pay off
  • Futures: a bet on an outcome determined at a future date, such as on a team’s total wins or who will win the Super Bowl

Several of the more popular futures bets involving the Tennessee Titans are listed above.

There are other player props involving the Tennessee Titans as well. You can bet on either running back Derrick Henry or quarterback Ryan Tannehill to be the NFL Offensive Player of the Year. You can also bet on new cornerback Kristian Fulton to be the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Spend some time with the sportsbook to see what other bets are available.

Live Betting on the Titans

Now that the season is on, don’t forget that live betting or in-game betting is available as well while you watch the Titans play.

The NFL is great for live betting. The pace of play and regular breaks in the action give bettors lots of chances to bet on what will happen on the next play or other outcomes for which the odds and lines are adjusted as the game goes along.

In game betting creates an immersive experience, offering fans unprecedented game interaction. Lines and odds will shift during integral moments in a game, such as after a strong play or points scored. Consequently, some odds are only available for a minute at a time.

How in-game odds change

Although live betting data is updated in real time, action can change within seconds. This leaves room for bettors to take advantage of an array of in-game occurrences before odds makers have time to readjust the numbers.

titans in game bettingWhereas historical sports betting relies on computer algorithms and static analytics, in-game betting rewards a bettor’s intuition. Bettors must determine where the value exists and capitalize on the opportunity before it dissolves.

Moneyline, point spread and game total lines, which are typically fairly stagnant, change widely in live betting. Maybe the moneyline for the next Titans game was at -250 before kickoff. Moneyline odds might move to -350 if Tennessee scores an early touchdown.

Conversely, odds may fall to -150 if they sink into an early deficit, which would be prime wagering time for bettors anticipating a comeback.

An over/under set at 53.5 before kickoff could shift to 48.5 during halftime if the score is only sitting at 16-7. This could be the ideal time to wager on the over if a specific incumbent team is known for stronger second half scoring.

In-Game Prop Bets

Some sportsbooks will go so far as to allow prop bets on the outcome of plays. Bettors can wager on the potential for:

  • Passing yards
  • Rushing yards
  • Yards lost or gained
  • First downs
  • Touchdowns

These types of bets call for maximum engagement, as the betting window is particularly small.

To in-game bet on the Titans, register and download your sportsbook apps before kickoff. You can find iOS download instructions here, and Android instructions here. Much like pre-game NFL betting, some sportsbooks will post better live odds than others. Transitioning between books – aka shopping for lines – is key.

Titans betting trends & tips

When betting the Tennessee Titans this year, one factor to keep in mind is how coach Mike Vrabel likes to run a ball-control offense that emphasizes the ground game. That was one big reason why Derrick Henry had more rushing attempts (303) and rushing yards (1,540) than any other RB in the league.

Yet, Ryan Tannehill actually led the NFL in QB passer rating for the year after taking over as the Titans starter in Week 7. The Tennessee team showed themselves to be capable of putting up points while also being adept at protecting leads and shortening the game, when needed.

Here are a few other Titans trends from 2019-20 to consider:

  • Against the Spread (ATS) – Last year the Titans were 10-8-1 against the spread. However, once Ryan Tannehill took over the starting job from Marcus Mariota, Tennessee was 8-4-1 ATS.
  • Over/Under – Last year, the Titans went under the total most of the time when Mariota was starting (1-5). But once Tannehill took over, their games went over consistently (10-3, including playoffs).
  • Offense/Defense – In 2019, the Titans offense scored 25.1 points per game (10th in the NFL). Meanwhile the defense gave up 20.7 points per game (12th in the NFL).

Tennessee Titans quarterbacks records for past 10 years

Last year, Marcus Mariota began as the Titans’ quarterback. But once Ryan Tannehill took over in Week 7, the veteran had a stellar season. Tannehill threw 22 touchdowns and just six interceptions while maintaining a better than 70% completion rate.

During the years prior to Mariota and Tannehill, the Titans struggled mightily at quarterback. Here are the regular season statistics for the Tennessee Titans’ primary starting QBs over the last decade.

Five greatest Tennessee Titans of all time

There were a number of great Houston Oilers whose careers preceded the franchise’s move to Nashville. Some of those players include Elvin Bethea, Earl Campbell, and Warren Moon. However, when it comes to the best players in Titans history, most if not all of these five would likely appear on most fans’ lists:

  • Eddie George – the franchise’s top running back for nine seasons, George gained more than 10,000 yards without missing a start
  • Chris Johnson – six-year running back with the Titans and set a franchise record when he rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009
  • Jevon Kearse – “The Freak” was a dominant defensive end and three-time Pro Bowler with the Titans
  • Bruce Matthews – 19-year veteran center who played his  entire career with HOU-TEN and made the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007
  • Steve McNair – the first franchise QB in Titans history led the team to only its Super Bowl appearance and shared an MVP with Peyton Manning

2020 Titans football betting – Preseason forecast

Following last year’s successful campaign ending with two playoff wins and an AFC Championship appearance, there is a lot of optimism surrounding the Titans heading into 2020.

Most pundits are predicting either Indianapolis or Tennessee will win the AFC South. Theoretically, Tennessee has one of the easier schedules in the NFL this year. Of course, as we all know, circumstances can change quickly once the season gets started. Some games on the schedule might appear easy wins before the season starts, but those same games can turn out to be much tougher contests when they actually arrive.

When it comes to Tennessee Titans betting, here are three players whose performance in 2020 will have a big impact on the team’s success:

  • Derrick Henry – The NFL’s leading rusher a year ago will be looking to continue his dominance. Some forecasters predict he’ll go back-to-back and lead the league again. This is a contract year for the former Heisman Trophy winner as well. That means there will be even more attention on how he performs and holds up physically in 2020.
  • Ryan Tannehill – After taking over mid-season as the starting QB last year, Tannehill was terrific, ending the year leading the team’s playoff run and playing in the first Pro Bowl of his career. Now he has signed a four-year extension with the Titans in the off-season. Tannehill did suffer a season-ending ACL injury once before in his career. How will he perform in what will be his 9th NFL campaign?
  • Kevin Byard – The safety has been a permanent fixture in the Titans’ secondary for five years. Last year, he collected eight interceptions while making his first All-Pro team. He also collected at the bank after signing a big five-year deal with Tennessee just before the 2019 season began. He’ll likely be wanting to continue to prove his worth in 2020.
