Tennessee's Vegas hot board: Dan Mullen's odds up, Jon Gruden's down
Tennessee fans, we have some bad news for those of you who are seated firmly on the GRUMORS bandwagon.
The Jon Gruden to Rocky Top odds are now trending the wrong way, according to Vegas.
For the first time since Gruden’s name hit the board at Bet Online, the odds of him becoming Tennessee’s next head football coach are decreasing.
Tennessee sports betting officially launched on November 1, 2020. Tennessee was the first SEC state to legalize sports betting.
Gruden is now listed at +250, which means he’s still the heavy favorite to land the job, for what it’s worth, but that’s not quite as good as last week when he was sitting at +150.
Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen took an incredible leap from +2200 all the way to +800. Chip Kelly still sits at No. 2 with +450 odds, while Jeff Brohm, Les Miles and Mike Norvell have the next-best odds along with Mullen.
Does Vegas know something, or is all of this happening just because of the money flowing in?
You can decide for yourself. That’s the beauty of GRUMORS and coaching odds.
Here’s a full look at the latest odds, courtesy of Saturday Down South news desk editor Michael Bratton:
