Previously known as the Houston Oilers, the Tennessee Titans compete in the National Football League (NFL) from the AFC South division where they have competed since 2002. Although the Titans won the AFC South divisional championship in both 2002 and 2008, they have only enjoyed one winning season in the past seven season, that coming in 2011 when they finished with a 9-7 record. The past two seasons are best described as very poor, and that is being kind to the men from Tennessee.
In 2014, the Titans finished 2-14, only narrowly improving to 3-13 in 2015, the same record as Cleveland Browns. The Titans only won a single home game in 2015, and lost four straight games as the regular season drew to a close, cementing them to bottom spot in the AFC South.
With these facts out in the open, it is easy to see why sports betting sites price a Titans AFC South title at +1000 with third favorites Jacksonville Jaguars at +250, that is how much of a gap there is between the Titans and the pack they are chasing.
If the Titans are to improve their abysmal recent records, they need Tight End Delanie Walker to be on the top of his game as he is a real star man, and the only real offensive threat for his team
Walker led the NFL tight ends in 2015 with 94 receptions, and become only the ninth tight end in history to catch 90 passes in a season. Comparisons have been drawn with Rob Gronkowski, and that is a big honor we are sure you will agree.

How To Make Money Betting On Tennessee Titans
After winning only five games during the past two seasons, it is easy to see why the Tennessee Titans are priced at +1000 to win the AFC South, or to put it another way, the Titans will not be winning the division in 2016.
Offensively, the Titans simply are not a threat to teams, as is evident by their pitiful 18.7 points per game in 2015, the worst in AFC.
Another worst record was their total yardage at a lowly 4,988 for 311.8 yards per game. Passing yards were severely low at 3,503 with only two teams fairing worse than the Titans.
Delanie Walker is the man threat on the offense, but one player cannot carry a team, especially from the tight end position. Titans need to strengthen and strengthen quickly otherwise there are going to be some low scoring affairs this season.
Marcus Mariota, fresh off his rookie year at quarterback, had a season that he can build from. His 91.5 rating helped by 2,818 yards, a 64.2 percent completion and 19 touchdowns was a solid start from 12 games.
While the Titans defense allowed 26.4 points per game in 2015, the third worse in the AFC, they ranked eighth for total yards allowed at 5,475 or 342.2 per game.
Defending passing was around average for the AFC, but rush defense was on the high side at 112.3 yards per game, so expect teams to rush more frequently in games against the Titans.
