Tennessee Titans Super Bowl Odds: Julio Jones Trade Cuts Titans Super Bowl Odds
It was only a matter of time until Julio Jones was traded. The real question was which team would acquire the services of the future Hall of Fame wide receiver.
Well, on Sunday we found out as the Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons agreed on a trade that sent Julio Jones and a 6th round pick in 2023 to Tennessee for two draft picks, a 2022 2nd rounder and a 2023 4th rounder.
This adds Julio Jones to a team that already features A.J. Brown, Derrick Henry and a resurgent Ryan Tannehill at quarterback. Not only do they have the best running back in football but they may now have the best 1-2 punch at wide receiver.
But, what do the Tennessee Titans Super Bowl odds look like following the trade? They’ve been heavily slashed with Julio Jones on his way to Nashville.
Julio Jones is a 7x Pro Bowler, so it makes sense that his arrival has a massive impact on the Titans Super Bowl odds. Jones has been one of the best wide receivers in the league since he was drafted sixth overall by the Falcons in the famously star-studded 2011 NFL Draft.
Jones is coming off just the third season ever which he didn’t have over 1,000 yards, due largely to the fact that he played just 11 games. Jones has 12,896 receiving yards in his career and 60 touchdowns on 848 catches. He’ll be heading straight to Canton, OH once he retires.
Let’s take a look at the Tennessee Titans Super Bowl odds following the Julio Jones trade.
As is always the case with any odds, but specifically futures markets like Super Bowl odds, there was a wide variety of Tennessee Titans Super Bowl odds available prior to the trade.
For the most part, the Titans were +4000 at almost every single book, with a couple of prices as high as +4500. At +4500, the Titans Super Bowl odds gave them a 2.2% chance of winning it all in 2021-2022.
Now that they’ve traded for Julio Jones, their odds have been predictably slashed. The very best Tennessee Titans Super Bowl odds available right now sit at +3000, but eight of the 12 sportsbooks offering Super Bowl odds have them at +2500.
At +3000, the Tennessee Titans Super Bowl odds now imply they have a 3.2% chance of winning. At +2500, that implied probability is up to 3.8%.
It’s important to remember that Julio Jones has never won a Super Bowl, but probably should have won one when his team took a 28-3 lead over the Patriots before allowing one of the greatest comebacks in NFL postseason history.
Still, there’s no denying that sportsbooks see this move as having a massive impact on the Tennessee Titans Super Bowl odds.
