Why Julio Jones will go over on receptions & receiving yards, under on TD prop bets for 2021

We take a look at the odds on the table for Tennessee Titans WR Julio Jones available on DraftKings Sportsbook and make our predictions ahead of the 2021 NFL season.

The Tennessee Titans made one of the offseason’s splashiest moves when they brought in Julio Jones in a swap with the Falcons. That gives their offense a pretty impressive cast of characters, and Jones should thrive there.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Tennessee Titans WR Julio Jones on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

995.5 receiving yards: Over (-120) or Under (-110)

Our pick: Over

Jones has been a lock for 1,000 receiving yards pretty much every season until injuries limited him to just nine games last year. He still managed to finish with 771 yards on 51 catches. It was the first season he’s had fewer than 1,394 receiving yards since 2013. This is an easy one, except for the question of injuries.

6.5 receiving TDs: Over (-110) or Under (-120)

Our pick: Under

The Titans are going to run the ball a lot, which is going to once again account for plenty of their scoring. Even quarterback Ryan Tannehill ran it in seven times last year. Factor in the other No. 1 receiver, A.J. Brown, and it’s hard to see Jones crossing the goal line more than six times with that many mouths to feed.

77.5 receptions: Over (-120) or Under (-110)

Our pick: Over

Until last season, Jones had at least 83 catches every year since 2013. He had 51 in nine game last year. So this looks like a lock, just as long as he stays healthy for at least three quarters of the season.
