The Tennessee Titans finished the 2019 NFL season one game away from the Super Bowl after losing to the eventual champions in the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
Despite a mostly successful season, the Titans are not getting much respect from the oddsmakers.
The Action Network released the odds for the 2020 NFL Season, including the odds for each team to win their respective conference. The Titans (+1200) currently sit fifth in the AFC despite having been one of the last two teams standing in the conference in 2019.
The Kansas City Chiefs (+300), Baltimore Ravens (+410), and New England Patriots (+700) have the three best odds to win the conference. Despite beating the Patriots and Ravens in the playoffs this season, the Titans still sit behind them.
Surprisingly, the Pittsburgh Steelers (+1048) snuck in ahead of the Titans in the fourth spot. The Steelers missed the playoffs entirely and struggled to put together a potent offense all of last season.
With the departure of Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell and losing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the season, the Steelers looked inept offensively. While they should expect Big Ben to return, his age and injury history should not be overlooked.
The Titans might be struggling to get respect from the oddsmakers due to the number of questions in the offseason.
Four of the Titans’ best players in quarterback Ryan Tannehill, running back Derrick Henry, cornerback Logan Ryan and right tackle Jack Conklin are all hitting free agency. In addition, the Titans have lost parts of the coaching staff, including defensive coordinator Dean Pees.
If the Titans can bring back their core players and add talent in the draft, this team has a real shot of not only winning the AFC, but winning the Super Bowl also.
