The Tennessee Titans won ine games for the second straight season a year ago and made the playoffs where they beat Kansas City in the wild card round before falling to New England in the divisional round. Despite their success the last two seasons, Tennessee decided to part ways with former head coach Mike Mularkey and now they’re heading in a new direction – kind of.
The Titans hired former New England Patriots linebacker and Houston Texans defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel to help get them to the next level, but it remains to be seen just how well the first-time head coach will perform in his inaugural season at the helm.
If you’re looking to make a potentially, profitable props odds wager on Tennessee’s regular season win total odds, then you’re going to increase your chances of doing just that thanks to the expert betting analysis and predictions that you’re about to get. Now, let’s find out what lies ahead for the Titans this coming season.
Tennessee Titans Regular Season Win Total Odds – 8.5
Week 1: Sept. 9 at Miami Dolphins, 1 p.m. ET
I’m expecting Miami to be mediocre at best in 2018, plus Ryan Tannehill is clearly not in the same class of quarterbacks as Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota. The Titans get the win in Week 1 despite being on the road. Win. 1-0.
Week 2: Sept. 16 vs. Houston Texans, 1 p.m. ET
The Titans and Texans split last season with each AFC South rival winning at home. Simply put, expect more of the same in 2018. Win. 2-0.
Week 3: Sept. 23 at Jacksonville Jaguars, 1 p.m. ET
The Titans swept the season series with Jaguars a year ago, but that’s not happening this time around. Jacksonville gets the win in the first meeting between these division rivals. Loss. 2-1.
Week 4: Sept. 30 vs. Philadelphia Eagles, 1 p.m. ET
The Titans might be playing at home in this Week 4 matchup, but Philly has the edge in coaching, at quarterback and on both sides of the ball. Loss. 2-2.
Week 5: Oct. 7 at Buffalo Bills, 1 p.m. ET
Despite being on the road in this week 5 matchup, Tennessee gets the fairly easy road win over a Bills team that should be solid defensively, but one that also has issues at quarterback and at running back where superstar Shady McCoy could be in legal trouble. Win. 3-2.
Week 6: Oct. 14 vs. Baltimore Ravens, 4:25 p.m. ET
The Ravens have a very solid defense, but they’re pretty mediocre offensively, plus I don’t think Joe Flacco is nearly as good as Tennessee’s Mariota at this stage of their respective careers. Win. 4-2.
Week 7: Oct. 21 vs. Los Angeles Chargers in London, 9:30 a.m. ET
The Chargers have a real gem in head coach Anthony Lynn, plus they have the edge at quarterback with the gunslinging Philip Rivers leading the way. The Bolts have the look of a playoff team and this is the kind of game they need to win. Loss. 4-3.
Week 8: BYE
Week 9: Nov. 5 at Dallas Cowboys, 8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN
This one should be good. Mariota vs. dak Prescott and Derrick Henry vs. Ezekiel Elliott. I’m going with the Titans because I have little to no faith in Dallas’ defense. Win. 5-3.
Week 10: Nov. 11 vs. New England Patriots, 1 p.m. ET
The Titans are playing at home and they won’t go down without a fight as Vrabel takes on his former head coach and mentor in Bill Belichick. The Patriots are bit too well-coached and they have the edge at quarterback and on defense. Loss. 5-4.
Week 11: Nov. 18 at Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m. ET
Andrew Luck had the look of a superstar quarterback a few years back, but that was then and this is now. Marcus mariota looks at least equal to the Luck we last saw two years ago, if not better and Tennessee is the far better defensive team. They win this Week 11 division matchup and get the sweep of the Colts as well. Win. 6-4
Week 12: Nov. 26 at Houston Texans, 8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN
I really like Marcus mariota, but not as much as Houston’s Deshaun Watson who i’m predicting could go one to become one of the best quaretrbacks of his generation. Houston gets it done on both sides of the ball to get their regular season spli. Loss. 6-5.
Week 13: Dec. 2 vs. New York Jets, 4:05 p.m. ET
I absolutely have some mad respect for New York head coach Todd Bowles, but the Jets have issues on offense and really, not enough takent on that side of the ball. Tennessee holds down the forst at home to give their playoff hopes a big boost. Win. 7-5.
Week 14: Dec. 6 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, 8:20 p.m. ET
If you go back to my Week 3 prediction, then you know I like the Titans to split with their AFC South division rivals in 2018. Win. 8-5.
Week 15: Dec. 16 at New York Giants, 1 p.m. ET
The Titans will be the better team in this matchup, but they aren’t my pick to get the win seeing as how I expect the G-Men to be better later in the regular season than early on and I believe the addition of gifted running back Saquon Barkley is going to open up all sorts of possibilities for offensive-minded head coach Pat Shurmur and veteran quarterback Eli manning., Loss. 8-6.
Week 16: Dec. 22 or 23 vs. Washington Redskins, TBA
Mike Vrabel might be a first-time head coach, but I suspect he’ll be better than Washington’s Jay gruden right out of the gate. Tennessee is the better team in this matchup in all three phases. Win. 9-6.
Week 17: Dec. 30 vs. Indianapolis Colts, 1 p.m. ET
The Titans swept the Colts last season and they’ll do it again as they go all-out to get the big victory in this contest to give their playoff hopes a huge boost. Win. 10-6.
The 8.5 win total odds for tennessee are going to be very close this coming season, but I like the Titans to reach the nine-win mark for the third straight season at the very least. Tennessee looks like a virtual lock to go over their win total odds.
