These are the facts:
With a record of 3-13, the Tennessee Titans were the NFL’s worst team in the 2015-16 season.
But, that does not stop the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook from attempting to breathe new hope (false, or otherwise) into Titans’ fans. With Sunday’s Super Bowl 50 still yet to be played, the Westgate SuperBook has already announced every team’s odds to win Super Bowl LI at NRG Stadium in Houston.
The numbers are set based on how each team did the previous year, players that are set to retire or become free agents, where the team will pick in the 2016 Draft, and how actively the team has been in free agency, historically.
And, guess what? Out of all 32 teams, the Titans do not have the worst odds. That distinction, fortunately, belongs to the Cleveland Browns at 200-1. The Browns are the only team of the 32 to have triple-figure odds.
So, where do the Titans land in all of this?
The SuperBook currently has Tennessee as one of ten teams with the worst chances to reach the 2017 Super Bowl at 50-1. The only teams with a longer shot, according to Vegas, are the Browns and the San Francisco 49ers at 60-1.
As any regular follower of the Titans will tell you, optimism regarding the team’s success is virtually nonexistent.
With respect to Tennessee’s chances to win Super Bowl LI, Vegas appears to echo those sentiments.
