The 2015 NFL season kicks off on Thursday night, September 10th, but before we get there, we will be here presenting daily team profiles in an attempt to assist you with your NFL picks in advance of Kickoff Weekend. Today we are profiling the Tennessee Titans, who finished 2-14 in 2014 and in fourth place in the AFC South.
First of all, here is a summary of the Tennessee betting statistics over the past five seasons. Please note that all of these stats are for regular season games only.

The Titans have been one of the worst bets in the NFL, hitting at just a 40.5 percent ATS rate if bet blindly in all of their games the last five seasons. Tennessee has been at its worst at home hitting at just a 35.1 percent ATS clip. And it has not really mattered if the Titans have been home favorites (35.0 percent ATS) or home underdogs (35.3 percent ATS).
Key Trend: Cleveland is 7-19-2, 26.9 percent ATS following an ATS win.
Up next we take a look at the Titans’ statistical summary for the 2014 season.
2014 Tennessee Titans Team Statistics (Per Game)
|Offense||Off. Rank||Defense||Def. Rank|
|Yds. Per Rush||4.1||19th||4.3||20th|
|Yds Per Pass||6.7||18th||6.9||18th|
|Yds. Per Play||5.6||16th||5.6||20th|
The Titans tied the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the worst record in the NFL last season, the worst record for the franchise since 1994, when it was still known as the Houston Oilers. The one possible bright side to that was getting the second pick of the NFL Draft, with which the Titans selected quarterback Marcus Mariota.
Next we peek at various Tennessee Future Odds for this 2015 season from several sportsbooks. You can view these and other future and prop odds on the Sportsbook Review Futures and Prop Bets Directory.
2015 Tennessee Titans NFL Futures
|Super Bowl Odds||+40000||+25000||+20000||+39500|
|AFC Conf. Odds||+11000||+11500||+7500||+10000|

To say 2015 expectations are extremely low for the Titans would be an understatement, as their posted win total of 5½ is tied for the lowest on the board with the Jaguars and the Raiders, and yet it is the ‘under’ that is juiced just about everywhere!
Tennessee Titans Key Additions
At least the future of the Titans appears much better than the present as some of the biggest additions to the squad came in the NFL Draft. Obviously Mariota was the biggest catch of all, but running back David Cobb, wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham and even fullback Jalston Fowler could all have prominent roles right from Day 1. As for veteran additions, Tennessee added wide receiver Harry Douglas and defensive end/linebacker Brian Orakpo.
Tennessee Titans Key Losses
The Titans lost quarterback Jake Locker, wide receiver Nate Washington, tight end Anthony Fasano, offensive tackle Michael Oher and kick returner Leon Washington, but considering this was a team that won all of two games last year, does it really matter?
