Mike Vrabel’s Titans eclipsed the double-digit win mark last season at 11-5, a first for the franchise since 2008. Now, they will look to do it again, while also making the playoffs for the fourth time in five seasons.
The Titans had the second best rushing offense behind running back Derrick Henry, and they’ve since added superstar wide receiver Julio Jones to pair with A.J. Brown. And with Ryan Tannehill coming back for his third season in Tennessee, they will look to build on an 18-8 record since he took over.
On defense, they added three impact players in edge rusher Bud Dupree and cornerback Janoris Jenkins, while spending their first-round pick on cornerback Caleb Farley.
In all likelihood, the Titans will once again be duking it out with the Indianapolis Colts for the AFC South title. The Titans also captured their first division title in 12 years last season. With their over/under set at 9.5 wins, it is fair to expect them to hit the over as heavy favorites to capture the crown in the South for the second straight season.
Titans Prop Bets 2021: Player Bet Picks
Ryan Tannehill Under 4,050.5 Passing Yards (-112)
Although Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill has revived his career in Tennessee, he has only thrown for over 4,050.5 yards one other time in six seasons, which came in 2015, when he produced 4,208 yards through the air with the Miami Dolphins.
Not to mention, the Titans are a team built around their running game and Derrick Henry. While Tannehill threw for over 3,800 yards last season, the Titans had the came in at No. 23 in passing offense with 228 yards per game.
Tannehill is poised to have another strong season for the Titans, but it is unlikely that he will throw for over 4,000 yards. The safe pick is to take the under.
Julio Jones Under 7.5 Touchdowns (-125)
The Titans acquired disgruntled star wideout Julio Jones this offseason in exchange for a second and fourth round pick, which looks like a steal given his resume.
Jones is coming off an injury-plagued season in 2020, where he missed seven games as a result of a recurring hamstring issue. He also had the second-lowest total of his career with 51 receptions and 771 yards.
However, Jones is a two-time first-team All-Pro and a six-time Pro Bowler. He’s solidified himself as one of the top receivers in the NFL over the course of the last decade, recording six straight campaigns of 1,300+ receiving yards from 2014-19 until he was hit by the injury bug last year.
While Jones and fellow star wideout A.J. Brown should wreak havoc on opposing secondaries all season, Jones has only eclipsed over seven touchdowns in four out of his 10 seasons in the league. Jones will likely have a big year, but he is playing on a run-first offense with another talented wide receiver in Brown. The safe bet would be to go with the under at 7.5 touchdowns.
A.J. Brown Over 1,200.5 Receiving Yards (-112)
Speaking of A.J. Brown, he built off an impressive rookie campaign with 70 receptions, 1,075 yards and 11 touchdowns in his second year. Brown will be expected to take the next jump in 2021, and he will have some help with Julio Jones joining him in the receiver room.
Adding Jones to the offense means some of the attention will be drawn away from Brown, which will hopefully result in another big year. Brown’s previous career-high was set last season, but his stock is certainly on the rise, and in all likelihood, he will record over 1,200.5 receiving yards.
Derrick Henry Over 1,550.5 Rushing Yards (-104)
Running back Derrick Henry led the Titans to the No. 2 ranked rushing offense last year behind another monster campaign. After he led the NFL in carries, rushing yards and touchdowns in 2019, he did it all over again last season with 378 attempts, 2,027 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns. He also led the league with an astounding 126.7 yards per game.
The success of the Titans’ 2021 season will rely on Henry being the work horse once more, as the NFL’s best running back. Due to his 2,000 yard season, it is an easy bet to take Henry to rush for over 1,550.5 yards next year.
