Texans’ Super Bowl odds skyrocket after shocking Stefon Diggs trade

Stefon Diggs is on the move to the Houston Texans, and there is surprisingly a ton of interest in the up-and-down receiver.

Diggs’s trade has lowered the Texans’ Super Bowl odds to an offseason low, going from 25/1 to 15/1 on BetMGM on Wednesday.

The positivity surrounding Houston has vaulted the Texans ahead of the Eagles in Super Bowl odds, with the seventh-best overall odds on the board.

Houston also saw a slight move in its AFC South division odds, having opened at +190 to win the division and now moving to clear favorite status at +110 at BetRivers.

Diggs to the Texans getting such acclaim from bettors and sportsbooks is at least a little surprising considering the acquisition cost and the receiver seemingly taking a step back in 2023.

The ex-Bills star posted his worst grade on Pro Football Focus in five years and grabbed just 66.9 percent of his targets, the second-worst number of his nine-season career.

Of even more interest is the Texans’ interest in stacking pass catchers, considering they are already loaded with playmakers such as Nico Collins, Nathaniel “Tank” Dell, Dalton Schultz and newcomer Joe Mixon.

Adding Diggs to the fold really makes it interesting to see how budding star quarterback CJ Stroud will divvy up the targets.

When it comes to having this many highly talented playmakers on one roster, it will take an extremely talented quarterback to keep all players involved.

Betting on the NFL?

It’s similar to when Tom Brady introduced Antonio Brown to the tandem of Mike Evans and Chris Godwin with the Buccaneers.

While early returns were good and the Buccaneers won a Super Bowl that season, it’s going to be challenging for a second-year quarterback to meet this challenge.

The Bills, who now have a glaring need for a No. 1 receiver, have slightly dropped from +1200 odds after Super Bowl 2024 to +1400 odds.
