The Tennessee Titans claimed the AFC South title in 2020 as they finished the regular season with an 11-5 record, though they were bounced early in the Wild Card round of the playoffs by the Baltimore Ravens. The Titans had a busy offseason in free agency bringing in some high-profile players, and they also saw some significant departures from the 2020 roster.
We’ll take a look at the latest DraftKings Sportsbook lines and predict if the Titans can beat their 2021 win total. The odds below are as of June 1, 2021.
NFC North win totals
Indianapolis Colts 10 (Over =115, Under -139)
Tennessee Titans 9 (Over -110, Under -110)
Jacksonville Jaguars 6.5 (Over +110, Under -134)
Houston Texans 4.5 (Over +118, Under -143)
Notable offseason moves
The Titans made a splash in the offseason by signing edge rusher Bud Dupree in a free agent deal and brought in defensive end Denico Autry and corner Janoris Jenkins. Tennessee re-signed linebacker Jayon Brown as well.
Tennessee moved on from wide receivers Corey Davis and Adam Humphries as well as cornerback Malcolm Butler, nose tackle DaQuan Jones, defensive back Desmond King, cornerback Adoree Jackson, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and tight end Jonnu Smith.
The Titans attempted went defense with three of their first four draft picks this spring as they brought in cornerbacks Caleb Farley and Elijah Molden along with linebacker Monty Rice.
Tennessee Titans prediction: UNDER 9
The Titans really struggled defensively last season, and they are losing quite a bit of talent from that unit. Tennessee did well in finding some defensive studs through free agency, but it seems unlikely the Titans will be able to repeat last season’s results. Prior to an 11-win season in 2020, Tennessee’s last double-digit victory season came in 2008. There likely would have been more had there been 17 games like there is this year, but we’re still going with the under in this spot with decent value.
Tennessee isn’t in a very competitive division as oddsmakers do not expect much from the Houston Texans or Jacksonville Jaguars, but the Titans are going to have the toughest schedule out of anybody in the AFC South, so a regression could be in the cards for this franchise in 2021.
