Tom Brady Next Team Prop Odds
Which team will roster quarterback Tom Brady in Week 1 of the 2020 NFL regular season? The betting odds are out and the favorite is the team he’s played for his entire career, but which team has the next best odds?
The Favorite: Patriots (4/9)
According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com, the Patriots have 4/9 odds to roster Brady in Week 1 of the 2020 NFL Regular season. New England has far and beyond the best team to roster Brady next season, which makes sense. While Brady is a free agent, the Patriots are the only organization that he knows and while he was coy about his future following New England’s first-round exit in this year’s playoffs, chances are he’ll stay put, albeit with a new lucrative deal. Some have speculated that Brady will receive a two-year contract and that owner Robert Kraft won’t let his quarterback play for any other organization.
The Next Best: Chargers (2/1)
With Philip Rivers set to become a free agent himself, the Chargers have the next-best odds to roster Brady in Week 1 of the 2020 regular season. While Brady played his college football at Michigan, he was born in San Mateo, California and grew up a 49ers fan. Thus, some are connecting the dots that he could wind up with the Chargers if he doesn’t return to New England.
Also in the Mix
The Raiders have 8/1 odds to roster Brady in Week 1 of the 2020 season, while the Colts are 10/1 and the Bucs are 15/1. The odds that he retires also has 15/1 odds, followed by the Titans at 20/1 (Tennessee head coach Mike Vrabel and Brady are close friends after playing together in New England) and the Dolphins at 25/1. The Bears and Browns, meanwhile, are 30/1, respectively.
The Long Shots
The Broncos, Cowboys and Panthers are all 50/1 long shots to roster Brady, likely because they already have Drew Lock (Denver), Dak Prescott (Dallas) and Cam Newton (Carolina) in the mix. Granted, Prescott is a free agent and Newton is coming off a season in which he missed most of it due to injury, but regardless those teams look to be set at quarterback. The Steelers are also 100/1 long shots to roster Brady, although they’re listed likely due to Ben Roethlisberger’s injury.
There’s no value in taking the Patriots at 4/9, but Brady is most-likely to play for Bill Belichick, Josh McDaniels and New England again next season. I do subscribe to the notion that Kraft won’t let Brady suit up for another team and the Patriots will pony up the money required to keep Brady happily employed in Foxborough. If you were looking for one long shot, the Bears are intriguing at 30/1. Chicago says its committed to Mitchell Trubisky but this was also a team that won the NFC North two years ago and has the defensive pieces to be competitive again next year. What they don’t have is a reliable quarterback and if Brady still wants a chance to compete, the Bears could surround him with enough talent to make a run in the NFC. That said, the best play is still the Patriots at 4/9.
