NASHVILLE, TN (The Spread) – The Tennessee Titans head into the 2013-14 NFL regular season as massive long shots to win the Super Bowl but could they be a dark horse sleeper?

View 2014 Super Bowl Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Titans are 150/1 long shots to win the Super Bowl and 66/1 to win the AFC Conference next season. Behind the Texans (-250) and Colts (+240), they’re also long shots at +800 to win the AFC South Division next year, and have an over/under of 6.5 for number of wins they’ll have in the regular season. Their odds of making the playoffs are +500 for and -800 against.

Despite their odds, the Titans aren’t without talent. They invested a lot of money in free agent guard Andy Levitre and then selected former Alabama offensive lineman Chance Warmack in the draft. With a couple of stellar tackles in David Stewart and Michael Roos, Tennessee’s offensive line has now become a strength, at least on paper.

Nobody will be happier that the team upgraded its offensive line more than running back Chris Johnson, who struggled last year thanks in part to lackluster run-blocking. The upgraded offensive line will also go a long way for Jake Locker’s development.

Of course, Locker needs to vastly improve his mechanics and accuracy if the Titans are going to make a run in the AFC South this year. He’s been inconsistent over his first two years in the league and he’s starting to run out of excuses with Johnson, Kenny Britt and Kendall Wright to throw to. The Titans lost one of their weapons in tight end Jared Cook (FA/Rams), but Cook wasn’t going to be the difference in Locker’s performance this year. He needs to improve by leaps and bounds, period.

On the defensive side of the ball, pass rusher Kamerion Wimbley has been a mainstay for the unit, but linebacker Colin McCarthy needs to stay healthy or he’ll be replaced at some point. The team invested free agent money in free agent Bernard Pollard (FA/Ravens) this offseason, as well in the re-signing of free safety Michael Griffin.
