Super Bowl LVII Odds
History of the Tennessee Titans in the Super Bowl
The Tennesee Titans are one of eight NFL franchises that have never won a Super Bowl. The Titans have only been the big game once, qualifying out of the AFC during the 1999/2000 season.
Although the Titans lost to the Rams 23-16 in Super Bowl XXXIV, they were involved in one of the more memorable endings in Super Bowl history. Wideout Kevin Dyson was tackled one yard short of the endzone on the game's final play fail, making for one of the most thrilling and heartbreaking moments in NFL history.
Super Bowl Betting Lines
Bettors can make tons of different wagers when betting on the Super Bowl in Tennessee. They’ll have access to all the same betting lines typically found at NFL games, along with an insane amount of props, some of which have nothing to do with the action on the fi
The most common NFL bets are on moneylines, spreads, and totals.
The moneyline is the most straightforward – odds are set based on a team’s perceived likelihood of winning the game outright, and the bet wins if the team the bet is made upon wins the game. (I.e, You just bet on the Titans to win).
Point spreads are slightly different. While the odds are more even, one team starts with a handicap. Sportsbooks identify the margin of victory they expect for the favored team and, an essence, give points to the underdog. If you see a line such as Titans (-6.5), that means oddsmakers expect the Titans to win the game by a touchdown or more. For the favorite to cover the spread, they need to win by a larger margin than the set line.
Point totals distinguish themselves from moneylines and spreads in that they’re only concerned with the total points the two teams combine to score (i.e, O/U 45). If you expect to see a fair amount of scoring in the game, you would take the over. If you think it will be more of a defensive grind, back the under.
Prop bets are side wagers on the game that aren't correlated to the overall outcome. They usually relate to individual players or teams hitting specific milestones during the game. Bettors can find odds and bet on
- Over/unders on passing yards, rushing yards, receiving yards
- Derrick Henry to score the first touchdown
- Titans to record over 1.5 sacks
The Super Bowl lends itself to several props that aren’t available for any other NFL game. Many have little to do with the game itself. Popular novelty props include:
- The coin toss (heads or tails)
- Will the announcers mention gambling odds during the broadcast
- The color of the Gatorade poured on the winning coach
