The Tennessee Titans have been around since 1960 but are still one of the dozen NFL teams that have never won a Super Bowl. In fact, the Titans numbers have been relatively bleak across the board which hasn’t exactly made them a popular pick in the sports betting world.
However, the Titans have built a bit of momentum in recent years. They made the playoffs in 2017 for the first time in nearly a decade and their defense was third in the league last year in points per game.
The bottom line? There are still ways to profitably bet on the Titans if you pay close attention.
In this team guide, we’ll take an in-depth look at the Tennessee Titans history, players and more with an eye to sports betting. Important topics include:

The Tennessee Titans started out in 1960 as the Houston Oilers. The Oilers were an original member of the American Football league and became part of the modern NFL when the two leagues merged in 1970.
The team moved to Memphis in 1997 for just one season and then to Nashville the following year. During that time they were known as the Tennessee Oilers and it wasn’t until 1999 that they took on their current name and started playing in the newly-constructed Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
The Titans won two AFL league championships before the NFL merger and have racked up one conference championship, nine division titles and made 22 playoff appearances. The Titans’ most successful season came in 1999 when they won the AFC Championship and narrowly lost to the St. Louis Rams in the Super Bowl.
Their biggest rivals include the Indianapolis Colts, Houston Texans and the Jacksonville Jaguars. The most notable names in franchise history include Steve McNair, Eddie George, Earl Campbell, and Warren Moon.
During the 2017 season, the Titans organization generated $371 million in revenue and Forbes estimates the business to be worth $2.1 billion.

To put it bluntly, the Tennessee Titans don’t generate a lot of buzz. They’re rarely featured on primetime, have only made one playoff appearance this decade, and are seriously short on star players.
However, they do possess one of the league’s best defenses (3rd in PPG in 2018), have amassed 19 wins over the last two seasons and scored big wins vs. the Eagles, Texans, Cowboys, and Patriots last year.
The durability of QB Marcus Mariota is a big concern for the Titans and should be on your mind if you plan to bet on the team. He’s struggled to stay healthy since entering the league in 2015. The Titans lackluster offense, which put up just 19.4 points per game in 2018, was the biggest reason they failed to make the playoffs last season.
In 2018, the Titans were undefeated when scoring 21+ points (6-0). On the flip side, they were just 3-7 when failing to score 21 points. Mariota comes into this season in a contract year as the Titans take a wait-and-see approach with the former second overall pick. RB Derrick Henry had a career season in 2018, finishing in the top ten in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns.
However, the majority of his yards came over the last five games of the season, so it’s unclear if he’ll be able to parlay his success into 2019. WR Corey Davis is a potential breakout candidate as he looks to live up to his billing as a former fifth overall draft pick.
Remember these key betting stats when you head to the sportsbook to bet on the Titans this season:
The Titans are coming off back to back 9-win seasons and are looking to win the AFC South for the first time since 2008. With one of the league’s best defenses and a strong rushing attack, the Titans have a strong team.
