The Tennessee Titans (11-5) sealed the AFC South title and the fourth seed in the conference with a 41-38 road win over the rival Houston Texans in their regular season finale on Sunday. Below, we’ll look at the Titans Wild Card odds for their game against the Baltimore Ravens at Nissan Stadium in Nashville (Sunday, Jan. 10 at 1:05 p.m. ET) and all the ways to bet on Tennessee from game lines to player prop bets.

It’s Tennessee’s first division crown since 2008. The Titans make a second straight trip to the postseason after advancing all the way to the AFC Championship Game last season before losing 35-24 to the eventual Super Bowl LIV champion Kansas City Chiefs. This season’s success follows the recent legalization of online sports betting in Tennessee. Titans fans will be able to bet on their favorite team at legal online sportsbooks such as DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook.

Bettors will have access to a wide variety of player props such as 2020 rushing champ RB Derrick Henry’s yards. The three-game slates for both Saturday and Sunday also allow for more profitable multi-game parlay opportunities. We highlight the top 10 ways to bet on the Titans at legal online sportsbooks in their Wild Card game against the Ravens here.

10. Derrick Henry rushing yards

Henry claimed his second straight rushing title and finished with 2,027 yards for the season by gashing the Texans for 250 yards and two touchdowns on 34 attempts in the finale. He ended the season with 10 games of more than 100 rushing yards, and he topped 200 yards in two of his final four games. Henry finishes the regular season as the top non-QB contender by the odds at FanDuel Sportsbook (+5000) for the 2020 NFL MVP. The fifth-year pro ran for 133 yards and a score on 28 carries against the Ravens in Week 11, and he had 195 yards on 30 carries against them in last year’s AFC Divisional Round game. PointsBet has Henry’s rushing Over/Under set at 109.5 yards. You can bet this now at PointsBet by going here.

9. A.J. Brown touchdowns

Brown held off a breakout campaign by Titans WR Corey Davis to lead his team in receiving yards once again with 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns on 70 receptions through 14 games. He found the end zone in 10 of 14 games, including Week 11 against the Ravens – with one two-score game. Closer to gameday, odds will be released for props such as anytime touchdown, first touchdown scorer, Titans’ first touchdown, and 2-plus touchdowns. Expect these to carry odds ranging from even-money (+100) to +500.

8. Ryan Tannehill pass attempts

Tannehill has the Titans back to the playoffs for the second straight year. He passed for 3,819 yards and 33 touchdowns against seven interceptions in his first full season under center in Tennessee. Tannehill is often asked to do less than other QBs of playoff teams, as the Titans offense moves through Henry. Still, Tannehill is fifth by FanDuel’s odds for MVP. Tennessee finished as the league’s fourth-highest scoring team at 30.7 points per game and will face the seventh-ranked Ravens (29.3 PPG) and 2019 MVP QB Lamar Jackson. An early deficit or a potential shootout could force Tannehill to do more than his 30.1 pass attempts per game from the regular season. The books should set a line around 31.5 with odds ranging from -105 to -125 on either side.

7. Titans point total

A form of game prop or alternate line, bettors can focus solely on the Titans and the above three offensive stars instead of betting the Titans – Ravens Over/Under (below). The Ravens’ 18.9 points allowed per game ranked second in the NFL, but Tennessee hung 30 on them in a Week 11 win and put up 28 in last year’s divisional round game. DraftKings Sportsbook currently has the Titans team total set at 25.5 points. You can bet on this Over/Under now at DraftKings Sportsbook by going here.

6. Point spread

The Ravens are point road favorites against the Titans despite losing both of the last two meetings on their home field. The books are siding with a Ravens team that ended the season with five straight outright wins and six straight covers. To cover the spread (if the spread is at 3.5 points), the Titans would need to win straight up or stay within 3 points in a loss. The Ravens need to win by at least 4 points. Alternate lines with more or less profitable odds will be released later in the week.

5. Over/Under (total)

Sunday’s projected point total is set at . The Week 11 clash played to the Over on a line of 50.5 with a total of 54 points scored by the two teams. Last year’s playoff meeting saw the Ravens held to just 12 points with a game total of 40 points. Any injury news or public betting action skewed too heavily in either direction will shift the odds throughout the week.

4. Moneyline

The moneyline is the simplest form of sports betting in asking which team will win the game. Odds are based on the regular season performance of both teams, health on both sides, historical head-to-head results, and are weighted for public popularity. The moneyline is a safer but less profitable way to bet a favorite and can offer dramatically increased plus-money payouts when backing an underdog for the upset win. You can bet on the moneyline at FanDuel Sportsbook now by going here.

3. Single game parlays

Sites such as PointsBet and FanDuel allow users to combine bet types from a single game into a parlay with increased odds. Like the Titans to upset the Ravens in a high-scoring game? Parlay the Titans’ moneyline (i.e. +160) with the Over (-107). A $10 bet would return a profit of $39 at combined odds of +390.

2. Multiple game parlays

The expanded NFL playoff format this year will see three games played both Saturday and Sunday. Combine picks on the moneyline, spread, or Over/Under from any two or more games. Be sure to take advantage of bonuses offered by the top sportsbooks in your state. You could get a risk-free first bet matching your initial deposit or odds boosts making a heavy favorite more attractive on the moneyline.

1. Super Bowl futures

Despite being the AFC’s fourth seed, the Titans have just the ninth-best odds to win Super Bowl LV at both DraftKings Sportsbook and FanDuel Sportsbook (+2800 at both). Backing Tennessee to win the franchise’s first Super Bowl would return a profit of $280 on a $10 bet following the Big Game Sunday, Feb. 7, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
