If Tom Brady does end up leaving the Patriots this spring, Las Vegas oddsmakers have a new favorite landing spot.
In odds released last week, the Patriots were the favorite to ink Brady this offseason (at -335 odds), with the Los Angeles Chargers the strongest favorite of the other 31 NFL teams, at +400. Meanwhile, the Las Vegas Raiders found themselves tied for fifth at +2000 odds to land the six-time Super Bowl Champion.
However, in DraftKings Sportsbook’s post-Super Bowl update, the Raiders have surged all the way up to +400, behind only the Patriots at -305. The Chargers (+600) move down to third, followed by the Tennessee Titans (+1200). The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Miami Dolphins are in a tie for fifth with +1600 odds.
The odds shift comes following a flurry of news during Sunday’s Super Bowl regarding Brady’s pending free agency both regarding the Patriots and the Raiders. Brady’s contract expires on March 18. If he and the Patriots can agree on a deal before then, it will save them $6.75 million in cap space this season.
