South Point Casino released their win totals for the 2017 season after the NFL Draft. Not only do they like the Titans, but they have set their win total at 9.5 — higher than the Texans at 8.5 and the Colts at 9. How long has it been since the Titans were favored for the division?

Of course, in order to win the division, the Titans are likely going to have to find a way to beat the Colts. They’ve never beaten them since the Andrew Luck era began. The entire Ryan Grigson era was wasted, which is pretty sad. It just speaks to the state that this roster was left in before Jon Robinson arrived.

The Texans are the wildcard here. Sure they’ll be starting a rookie quarterback (we think) in Deshaun Watson, but I think everyone would agree that he’s a clear upgrade from anything that they had last year. Watson will not be short on weapons with DeAndre Hopkins, Lamar Miller and Will Fuller returning. Oh by the way, JJ Watt should return as well, making the defense that much better.

Can the Titans win this division? I think any level headed fan would say yes. But I do think they have to get over the hump with the Colts first. With an upgraded secondary and better weapons around Marcus Mariota, there’s no reason they can’t take that step in 2017.
