Okay so Antaeus' hip toss ability allows him to spend a favor to have his opponent displace him. Since this displacement is determined by his opponent I am struggling to see how useful this is. Am I missing something obvious or is this just something situational?

You're missing what the actual rules for displacement are. :)

"Being displaced by your opponent" means "Pretend the opponent is a titan who has just landed on top of you".

In that situation, the rules specify that the model *being discplaced* chooses where it goes. Not the titan.

I know that it seems like RRG are making it deliberately confusing when they write the rules like that. But it's true. An attacker displacing a defender is a good thing for the defender. And a defender displacing an attacker is a good thing for the attacker. Because the displacee is the one in control.

You are absolutely right, I read that rule over and over and managed to glaze over tht part. Yep, that makes hip toss much better! Thanks!
