Trade deadline day in the NFL came and went Tuesday, and with it … not a lot of movement for mobile sportsbooks in the Super Bowl odds market.
Let’s do a quick rundown of the moves — both players and odds. (All odds are from DraftKings.)
Seattle Seahawks: They got the party started Monday when they traded for Giants defensive lineman Leonard Williams to shore up an already — and somewhat surprisingly — stout defense. They sent a 2024 second-rounder and 2025 fifth-rounder for Williams, and as a result their Super Bowl odds went from 3500 to … 3500.
Chicago Bears: The 2-6 Bears were not expected to be buyers at the deadline, but that’s exactly what they became by acquiring Washington Commanders star pass rusher Montez Sweat for a second-round pick. The Bears’ Super Bowl odds remained steady at “not gonna happen” (that’s 400-to-1 for those scoring at home).
Minnesota Vikings: The Vikings acquired Arizona Cardinals quarterback Joshua Dobbs to replace the injured Kirk Cousins. They sent a sixth-round pick to the Cards for Dobbs and a seventh-rounder. The Vikings’ Super Bowl odds have been bouncing like, well, like an errant Joshua Dobbs pass since last week. Pre-Cousins injury, the Vikings were 6500.
Post-Cousins injury, they shot up to 15000. Post-Dobbs trade, they stayed at 15000, and that might be because …
The #Vikings are trading for #AZCardinals QB Josh Dobbs, with plenty of starting experience, per me and @TomPelissero.
It helps make up for the loss of Kirk Cousins. And gives MIN a chance… pic.twitter.com/TUEnTemakr

Jacksonville Jaguars: … the Vikings weren’t done, trading stud offensive lineman Ezra Cleveland to the Jags for a third-day pick. The Jags remained steady at 1600 to hoist the Lombardi.
San Francisco 49ers: In the rich-get-richer department, the Niners acquired the other stud Commanders pass rusher on the market, Chase Young, for a third-round pick. The NIners entered the day as 600 to win the Super Bowl, just a hair below the Kansas City Chiefs at 500. After the Young deal, their odds remained the same. Tough crowd out there in the sportsbook streets.
Trade II: Washington is dealing DE Chase Young to the San Francisco 49ers for a third-round pick, per sources.
On the trade deadline day, Washington now has moved on from Young and Montez Sweat, once viewed as foundational players.

Detroit Lions: The Lions added a wide receiver to complement Amon-Ra St. Brown in Donovan Peoples-Jones from the Cleveland Browns for a sixth-rounder. Peoples-Jones is expected to stretch the field for Mr. St. Brown and others. And no, this didn’t move the Lions’ odds. They remain at 1100.
And lastly …
Buffalo Bills: The Bills shored up their secondary, trading for Packers cornerback Rasul Douglass for a third-round pick, which didn’t budge the Bills’ 1500 odds.
