Death, taxes, and Derrick Henry are the only three inevitable things in life. Despite subpar performances from the passing game, Henry propelled the Tennessee Titans (1-1) to victory in Seattle in Week 2. As exciting as the overtime victory was, the Titans have to shift focus to a divisional game against the Indianapolis Colts (0-2) in Week 3.
The Titans are currently favorites in the game and to win the AFC South.

How to bet on the Tennessee Titans
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Titans -145
- Chargers +210
The Titans are considered favorites in this matchup (indicated by -145), requiring a $145 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). The Chargers are the underdog in this matchup, paying out $310 total for a $100 bet ($210 in winnings). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Titans -2.5 (-110)
- Seahawks +2.5 (-110)
In this example, Tennessee is favored by 2.5 points, indicated by “-2.5.” If the Titans win the game 34-31, the Titans (-2.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Seahawks keep the game within three and lose 21-19, the Seahawks (+2.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, a Titans matchup with the Indianapolis Colts had a projected point total of 53. The Titans won the matchup 45-26, giving the game a point total of 71. Those who bet the over in the game would have cashed out.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Titans (-225) were heavily favored against the Lions (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Titans to win would win just $4.44.
However, say the Titans fell to a big 24-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Lions, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Titans to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Tennessee (+130) at halftime and the Titans pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Lions (+190) in that game, but Tennessee jumps out to a 13-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Tennessee (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
Titans 2020 recap
Record ATS: 7-9
Over/under record: 12-3-1
It was another strong season for Mike Vrabel’s squad and their first division title since 2008. The Titans were able to pull off some convincing wins including a 42-16 decimation of the Buffalo Bills early in the season. However, the season was plagued by blowouts at the hands of the Browns and Packers as well as an upset loss to the Bengals. Ultimately, the Titans were carried by Derrick Henry but that wasn’t enough in the playoffs.
Due to the reliance on the run game, the Titans often found themselves in closer games than point spreads seemed to imply. Their first three contests resulted in an 0-3 record against the spread and the 4-12 Texans played Tennessee to a one-score game in both outings (even taking them to overtime once). However, the Titans routinely exceeded point totals, putting together a league-best 12-3-1 record against the point total this year.
