Titans fans might see their recent Super Bowl odds as disrespectful
Perhaps this is the year where it all comes together. If you hadn’t seen the Tennessee Titans play last year or the during the preceding season, you may not believe it, but we were all there and saw it happen. Following the 2019-2020 regular season, they snuck in with a mark of 9-7 but clawed their way to the AFC Championship Game. They may have fallen short of the ultimate goal, but that was okay. Surely, during the next season, we’d see them take the next step, right?
We were wrong. Well, sort of. Tennessee closed the 2020-2021 campaign with a mark of 11-5 and the AFC South’s Crown. All that was left was for them to kick the door in, walk through the American Football Conference’s postseason, and hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy after beating up on whoever the NFC offered as a Super Bowl opponent.
Let’s just say that we were all reminded of why we say things like “that’s why they play the games”. Tennessee had the doors slammed in their faces during a home Wild Card Playoff loss versus a team they had upset in the postseason one year earlier, the Baltimore Ravens.
So, again, this is the year that it all comes together. At least we hope so, but it looks like the experts disagree with that sentiment.
Tennessee Titans score middle-of-the-pack Super Bowl LVI odds.
Regardless of whether the Tennessee Titans win by a last-second field goal or lose by three touchdowns, this fan base is going to be loyal. That’s been proven, but who are we kidding? Teams play this game to win it all right?
The Titans are still in search of their first Super Bowl win, and it feels like this is as good a team as any to be labeled as a favorite, but the guys in Vegas don’t seem to think so. According to WynnBET, Tennessee has the 14th best odds to win it all at +2500.
Whether you agree with that or not, you should be asking for a retally, especially seeing as how seven AFC teams rank ahead of them, including the hated Indianapolis Colts (+2500), the Denver Broncos (+1700), and the Miami Dolphins (+2500).
Do not adjust your screens. This is not a drill. Tua Tagovailoa’s guys and Drew Lock and company are being given the nod by Vegas over a division winner from a season ago that figures to be even better this season than they were in the one prior.
Speaking of division titles, if Tennessee was to add another to the trophy case this year, it would be the first time that they had won back-to-back division titles since they accomplished that feat in the AFL’s Eastern Division titles in 1961 and 1962 when they were still the Houston Oilers. Consecutive seasons of ten wins or more haven’t been accomplished by this team since they did so in 2007 and 2008.
Maybe that has something to do with the theory? Either way, whether you subscribe to that one or not, this has to be seen as disrespectful whether you’re a fan of this team or not. They’re behind the Broncos. The Broncos! Someone needs to be working on some sort of retraction in Vegas as we speak. For more betting insight, visit BetSided.com.
