The Tennessee Titans have gone all-in for the upcoming season and the betting markets have reacted. Star WR Julio Jones is on his way from the Atlanta Falcons to the Titans, impacting both teams Super Bowl odds at BetMGM.
After the big trade, Tennessee is now down to +2500 from +4000 to win it all this upcoming season. The Kansas City Chiefs are still the favorites at +450, but the Titans now sit ninth in odds, tied with the Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and Seattle Seahawks.
As for odds to win the AFC, the Titans have jumped to +1200, a huge boost from +2400, before the trade was made. Tennessee is also now a co-favorite with Indianapolis to win their division, the AFC South, at +105.
The Titans and the Patriots were the early favorites to acquire Jones when odds were posted a couple of weeks ago following his “I’m out of there” comment to Shannon Sharpe on FS1.
The shift in odds is understandable because adding the superstar receiver to an already stacked core of talent makes the Titans offense one of the best in the league, at least on paper. Jones joins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, running back Derrick Henry and receiver A.J. Brown, which will be fun to watch for fans, gamblers and fantasy players.
Jones, who is 32, will of course need to stay healthy and productive for this deal to payoff for Tennessee. Julio played only 9 games last season and finishing with 51 receptions, 771 yards, and only 3 touchdowns.
On the flip side of the deal, the Atlanta Falcons dropped from +8000 to +10000. Calvin Ridley now becomes the team's WR1 and gets ready to take up the mantle in Atlanta.
