Tennessee Titans Schedule Odds & Analysis

Tennessee Titans Schedule Odds & Analysis

Written by on May 11, 2020

Every team in the NFL will head into the new season believing that they can win a Super Bowl. The reality, though, is that there are only a handful of teams who have a legitimate shot at making it all the way to the big game. In the AFC, you have to wonder if the Tennessee Titans are one of those teams. They turned a 9-7 regular season last year into a run to the AFC Championship Game. Was that a case of getting hot at the right time or is this a team to be reckoned with this coming season. Let’s take a look at their 2020 schedule and NFL betting odds to see if we can answer that question.

Tennessee Titans Schedule Analysis

Strength of Schedule 

The chances of any team making the playoffs depends on several different factors, one of which is the strength of schedule. Based on the standings from last season, it would appear that the Titans have a manageable schedule this year. The teams they will face this coming season had a combined 127-128-1 record last year. With that in mind, you have to feel that Tennessee has a shot at competing for the AFC South division crown, or at the very least, a Wild card spot. The Indianapolis Colts will be better, and the Texans will be tough again, so definitely not a slam dunk.

The Titans Have a Tricky Start to the Season

Tennessee will open up their season with a Monday night game in Denver, and while the Denver Broncos are down right now, they are always tough to beat at Mile High. They then follow that opener up with 4 games against playoff teams from last year in the next 5 weeks. If Tennessee can come away from the opening 6 weeks of the season at or better than .500, you would certainly need to like their chances of going on and making it into the postseason.

Primetime and Featured Games

Having a great playoff run in the previous season would seem to have its benefits. The Titans only made one primetime appearance last year, but they will be nationally televised three times this coming season. As previously mentioned, they open up on the road in Denver on Monday night. They will then be on Thursday Night Football in Week 10 against the Colts at home. Their final primetime tilt comes in the penultimate week of the season in a Sunday night game on the road in Green Bay.

We mentioned the tough start that the Titans have this season, but their toughest stretch of games may actually come in Weeks 10 through 12. They will have a pair of games against the Colts bookending a game against the Baltimore Ravens. That is a tough run of games that could ultimately go a long way towards deciding their playoff fate.
