Football gambling handicappers were reminded at how dangerous the odds NFL are in the playoffs when Baltimore beat Tennessee 13-10 as 3-point road dogs. For the Titans and head coach Jeff Fisher it was a football gambling heartbreaker and completely ruined what was otherwise a fantastic and highly profitable year against the odds NFL.
Tennessee would have had home field advantage for the AFC title game against Pittsburgh had they not suffered that epic football gambling upset loss to the Ravens. The key football gambling question regarding Tennessee for 2009 is whether they can recover mentally from that sour ending and return as an elite team and AFC contender.
The defense certainly appears to be a strength again for this upcoming football gambling season. Last year the Titans ranked 7th overall in pro football for defense, which happens to be Fischer’s strength and area of expertise as a coach. Albert Haynesworth led the Titans is sacks with 8 while Tony Brown had 10 tackles for loss.
Michael Griffin had 7 interceptions and ran one back for a score. Keith Bulluck led the Titans with 98 total tackles. Offense, on the other hand, is where the Titans are weak and where they were exposed in that football gambling playoff loss.
Tennessee ranked only 21st overall on offense for 2008 and quarterback Kerry Collins was inconsistent throughout the season. Collins had an 80.2 quarterback rating and had just a 12/7 touchdown/interception ratio.
The football gambling strength of the Tennessee attack is running back Chris Johnson, who rushed for 1228 yards and 9 touchdowns last season with a yards per carry average of 4.9.
The 2nd year back from East Carolina was also an effective football gambling asset as a receiver with 43 catches and a TD. Justin Gage was an effective receiver last year with a 19.1 yards per catch average and 6 touchdowns.
