Chris Jones publicly declared at the Chiefs' Super Bowl parade that he intended to stay in Kansas City, and it appears oddsmakers are taking him at his word.

DraftKings Sportsbook recently released odds on the team Jones will open the 2024-25 season with and the Chiefs are a resounding favorite.

Even though the long-time defensive stalwart isn't under contract, Brett Veach has said keeping Jones is a top priority. Both teams appear motivated to get a deal done.

Chris Jones' Next Team Betting Odds

The Chiefs are heavy favorites to retain Jones' services, sitting at -350. The Bears (+425) and Texans (+650) are next in line with the Lions (+900) being the top NFC team.

After a contentious holdout that bled into the regular season, it seems unlikely that Jones would take a hometown discount, especially considering the outsized contract he's earned. That being said, the Chiefs have a special opportunity to become the first team in NFL history to win three consecutive Super Bowls, adding some incentive to both sides.

There's no denying Jones' excellence. He was instrumental during this playoff run, notably causing Josh Allen to misfire on a potential game-winning TD in the AFC Divisional Round. He has 26 sacks over the last two seasons and is a beloved leader in the locker room, so Kansas City would be wise to try to find a framework for a deal.

Odds of -350 mean you'd need to bet $35 to win $10, indicating it's overwhelmingly likely that the Chiefs and Jones come to an agreement. We'll see what happens in the coming weeks, but this is a great sign for Chiefs fans hoping Stone Cold Jones sticks around.
