Combined constraints from the CDF and D0 Collaborations on models of the Higgs boson with exotic spin J and parity P are presented and compared with results obtained assuming the standard model value $J^P = 0^+$. Both collaborations analyzed approximately 10 fb$^{−1}$ of proton-antiproton collisions with a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV collected at the Fermilab Tevatron. They combined analyses of the $WH \to \ell \nu bb$, $ZH \to \nu\nu bb$, and $ZH\to \ell\ell b b$ channels. Two models of bosons with $J^P = 0^−$ and $J^P = 2^+$ were tested.
