In my opinion, the Tennessee Titans’ Super Bowl odds are underrated heading into Week 6. Of course, they should improve as the season goes on, but if you’re looking for a stock that’s about to rise, they might be your best option.
As they did in Week 4, Losing to the Jets will cause any team’s odds of winning Super Bowl LVI to fall, but that only means that their odds have been undervalued. The loss to the Jets was a glitch in their season that the online sports betting world will put too much emphasis on, at least for a few more weeks.
Currently, the Titans’ odds of a Super Bowl 56 victory sit at +4000. However, they now have the 10th best odds. In my opinion, the Titans are better than at least a handful of teams in front of them.
Tennessee Titans’ Super Bowl Odds Likely To Climb Throughout Season
For the second time in three years, the Titans promoted their Tight End coach to offensive coordinator when Todd Downing received the role in the offseason. He also had a shortened preseason in 2021 to get ready. Other offensive additions like Julio Jones and free-agent signing Josh Reynolds will require some time to pay off.
In the long run, these additions will help the team, but some stumbling blocks with a new offensive coordinator and options for QB Ryan Tannehill require time. Jones, in particular, needs to grow into his new team, and being out for two weeks will delay that from happening.
In terms of Tannehill and Derrick Henry, no questions need to be asked here. Henry is one of the best running backs in the NFL, and Tannehill has the consistency that any Super Bowl contender needs.
On defense, the Titans have a lot of young players deep in their depth chart who will likely move up as the season continues. Players such as cornerbacks Elijah Molden and Caleb Farley give the team additional options when hit by injuries (or poor play). In addition, Mike Vrabel is a flexible coach who’s not afraid to change lineups to create better matchups for his team.
With that in mind, I wouldn’t put too much stock into a Week 1 loss to anyone, let alone the Arizona Cardinals, who now sit at 5-0.
The Week 4 loss to the Jets might stick out a little bit more, however. Nervous fans or sports betters might need that one explained away before feeling confident that a Super Bowl victory is within reach. The Titans lost that game because of inconsistent offensive line play. The game came down to a missed field goal, but it shouldn’t have gotten to that point.
Tennessee Titans Predictions in the AFC South
Also working in the Titans’ favor is the lack of competition in the AFC South. As it stands now, the Texans, Colts, and Jags have only combined for two wins. As a result, the division title should be an easy target, and the six games played against teams experiencing real challenges should improve the Titans’ chances of a 1st round bye.
When To Take The Titans As Super Bowl LVI Contenders
The Titans’ schedule for the next two weeks is interesting. The Bills are 5.5-point favorites next Monday in Nashville, and then the Titans host the Chiefs the following week. Those are big games against teams currently with better odds at a Super Bowl LVI victory.
No matter the results against Buffalo and Kansas City, the Titans’ Super Bowl odds will fluctuate. If they win both, their odds will improve drastically. If they lose both or split the two games, their odds will get worse. So, the time to decide is now.
