Titans Hard Running 2021 Season
The new NFL season is just around the corner and one of the most interesting teams to look at this year is, undoubtedly, the Tennessee Titans.
2019 saw them attain dark horse status, and 2020 brought through a solid playoff run to . According to the Tennessean, defensive reinforcements in the off-season will turn the Titans into serious, legitimate, championship contenders. A relatively simple team tactically, yet lacking the elite pedigree of some of the favourites, they rely on the power and form of their star player Derrick Henry. As 2021 comes in, the Titans are looking a good bet to make some cash on this season.
The big pull for any gambling man is the championship. The championship victor is of course notoriously hard to predict - even the Patriots have failed to assert total dominance. This makes it a great place to focus on in American football betting - even gut feeling punts might bring in the dollars. The Titans were rank outsiders coming into the offseason, however, the trade of exciting wide receiver Julio Jones from the Atlanta Falcons shortened the Titans’ odds from 40-1 to 25-1, according to the USA Today TitanWire. That’s a good sweet spot - the bookies obviously see the potential in the Titans this season while also leaving wiggle room to make serious money.
According to LegalSportsBetting.com, the Titans remain one of the most overlooked teams by the bookmakers, and there are big wins to be made in the stats. The Titans are a huge running team - their focus is on those big throws to Derrick Henry. The Game Day tip quarterback Ryan Tannehill to hit under 4,050.5 yards throughout the season - he’s only managed over 4,000 in one season, with the Dolphins, and is unlikely to pick up more with the Titan’s game plan. Looking for bets around throw stats and running is always going to be a sure bet with the Titans, one way or another.
Star of the show Derrick Henry broke records last year when he scored 2000 rush yards, a feat that propelled him to greatness according to the NFL. The team is built around rushing, and Derrick Henry is absolutely core to that. While 2000 yards might be difficult to hit again - it’s only been hit eight times in the history of the NFL - there’s good money to be found in Derrick Henry running the yards again. Only injury can stop the Floridian, and many experts are backing 1500 yards or more for the coming 2021 season.
Taking that strategy to heart - backing the stats around rushing and a lower amount of throws - will see you profit when it comes to the Titans. From underdogs to genuine contenders, the Tennessee franchise are creating interesting situations for bookmakers. As long as they remain undervalued, there’s money to be made.
