    I saw it a bit ago when the schedules were released... Titans' over/under is set at 6.5.

    That means Vegas believes we will be worse than last season. Not happening. Does anyone know where I can place a bet on this? You don't have to be a betting man to put some money on this. Do it.

    I don't even need to be confident in our team to know we won't do worse than 7-9.

    What were the odds last season? I believe most of us (I included) over-estimated how well we'd do while i think Vegas was pretty close.

    6.5 last year as well, I believe.

    I think it was 2012 that Vegas had it right and we had it wrong. I think it was 6.5 then as well. We all (mostly) assumed we would post a similar record in 2012 as we did in 2011 (9-7). We sucked balls though.

    Maybe these will change after the draft too. I guess I should hold off until after to place a bet anyways.

    If they guessed 6.5 last season then that's pretty damn close to the 7 we ended up with. I hope Vegas is wrong but it seems they seldom are.

    Right, but the point is if we went 7-9, giving away at least three games, there's no reason we can't match it or do better.

    The rule of thumb as a Titans fan is to never expect better than 8-8 (until the team gives us a reason to). 7-9 has gotta be worst case scenario for this season. And that still wins the bet.

    I am a betting man myself and I am waiting to see what happens after the draft. This season I have a feel will be worse than last year but in 2015 we bounce back.

    I took that bet last year. And of course it came down to the last game. I'll take it again this year.

    Last year they had us at 3 when the schedule first released but it gradually rose as the season approached.

    There's no way they had us at 3. I don't think they'd have any team at 3. Way too low.

    I would take the over on ANY team if they were given 3.
