2015 Tennessee Titans Preview Schedule Win Total Odds

The Tennessee Titans had a miserable 2014, in which they went just 2-14 and this year looks to be another long one for this team.  Vegas has the Titans win total set at 5.5 (O -110)Betting Odds have the Titans listed as +2500 to win the AFC South, +7500 to win the AFC Title and +20000 to win Superbowl 50. A Preview of the Tennessee Titans along with their 2014 Schedule are below.

Last year the Titans were 30th in the league in scoring, at 15.9 ppg, while also ranking 29th in total yards (303.7 ypg), 22nd in passing (213.2 ypg) and 26th in rushing (90.4 ypg). The offense for this team was very bad last year and the Titans are hoping that the right arm of Marcus Mariota will help them turn it around. Mariota threw 105 TDs and had just 14 INTs in 3 years at Oregon and many feel that he has the tools to succeed at this level. The WR Corps also needed an upgrade and the titans did just that as they got Hakeem Nicks and Harry Douglas in free agency, while taking Dorial Green-Beckam in then second round of the draft. This now has the makings of a fine WR corps. The running game is led by Bishop Sankey, but he really did have a mediocre first year and if not careful the rookie David Cobb just may take over. He has the tools to be a solid power back in the NFL. The offense has nice skill players, but still the OL is a sore spot and just may keep them from progressing too much this year.  

Defensively, the Titans ranked 29th in points allowed (27.4 ppg), 27th in yards allowed (373.0 ypg), 15th vs the pass (235.8 ypg) and 31st vs the run (137.2 ypg).  The Titans were a bad defensive squad last year, but they may have found a few pieces that should help them improve on this side of the ball. LB's Brian Orakpo and Jonathan Massaquoi, plus CB Parrish Cox were all picked up in the offseason through free agency and they should help this team right away. Jurrel Casey (16 sacks L2Y) is the leader of a rather weak DL that was crushed on the ground last year and not much has really been done to upgrade this unit. The LB Corps looks to be solid rhis year with their additions, while and average secondary last year should be a bit better this year. Still the Titans will struggle on this side of the ball as they just don't have a big pass rush and will still struggle to stop the run. 

The Titans started 2014 with a 3-1 record, but since then they have won just 6 of their last 30 games. They should be a bit better on offense this year, but Mariota will still go through some growing pains and the running game is not an above average unit, plus that OL is not very good. The defense will be better for this team, but they have all lot of ground to make up after last year's dismal performance. The DL is what will keep them from progressing too much. This team was just 2-14 last year and on Paper they are a better team than that this year, but they still have too many young players at key positions to feel that they will turn this ship around this year. They are headed in the right direction, but still I see no more than 4 wins, which means they will not top their win total of 5.5 that Vegas has set forth.

NFL PAT Rule Change--Does this ruin NFL Betting?
Some people claim the recent NFL rule change moving the PAT line back to the 15 yard line won't be a big deal, but pro bettors Teddy Covers and Steve Fezzik think it means big changes for football bettors. Key numbers like threes and nines lose values, while previously dead point spread numbers like nines and twos are now more live. Teddy thinks it is a disaster that will result in more coaching decisions determining the point totals of the game. Fezzik actually likes the rule change, but agrees serious bettors need to throw out their databases and get ready for a new way to bet the game.
