Clash Of The Tennessee Titans, SB 54 Odds Surpass Texans Odds

  • The Houston Texans were number one in the AFC South but their odds to win the Super Bowl are longer than that of the Tennessee Titans.
  • The Texans barely squeezed out a win against the Buffalo Bills for the Wild Card game.
  • The Titans were able to dethrone the New England Patriots during their Wild Card Matchup.

MIAMI – Super Bowl Sunday is getting closer and closer and surprisingly the Tennessee Titans (+2000) have shorter odds to win the championship game than the Houston Texans (+2500) who hold a better record for the season.

In the AFC South, the Texans were number one in their division with a record of 10-6. The Titans also belong to the AFC South and finished in second place with a record of 9-7. So why does Tennessee have shorter odds to get a Super Bowl win than Houston?

The Odds And Ends

For Wild Card Weekend, the Houston Texans went up against the Buffalo Bills (10-7) and won 22-19. Meanwhile, the Tennessee Titans faced the New England Patriots (12-5). The Titans outscored the Patriots by a touchdown for a final score of 20-13.

Not only did Tennessee walk onto that field with a worse record than the Texans, but they also played against what was once an unbeatable team. New England’s record was much better than the Bills.

It isn’t just the records of the teams playing that are compared when it comes to coming up with the odds for a competition, final scores are also a factor as they’re part of the athletic performance shown in a game. The Texans being the better team when compared to the Titans, beat a team that was not as good as the Patriots, and only managed to win it by three points in overtime.

On the other hand, the Titans were able to take down the Patriots that were assumed to be a lock for a Super Bowl appearance. They beat a more difficult team with more points. It’s these reasons that have bookmakers giving the Tennessee Titans more favorable odds to win Super Bowl 54 than the Houston Texans.

For the NFL divisional rounds, the Titans (+320) will face the Baltimore Ravens (-440) on Saturday, January 11 at 8:15 p.m. EST. The game will be televised on the CBS network. The Houston Texans (+330) will take on the Kansas City Chiefs (-460) on Sunday, January 12 at 3:05 p.m. EST. CBS will also be broadcasting this game.

While the Ravens are the clear favorites, the Patriots also held that title and the Titans managed to take them down. A repeat could occur. As for the Texans, Houston will need to play better than a minor three-point advantage if they want to beat the Chiefs.
