2020 NFL Offseason Odds | Odds Shark
The Vince Lombardi Trophy officially has a new home, as the Kansas City Chiefs won their first title in 50 years thanks to a 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 54. While the action on the gridiron is on hiatus until September, the NFL is a year-round league, and that means a fresh new batch of betting props getting released for the 2020 offseason.
Online shop BetOnline has updated its prop specials for the upcoming offseason, which gets underway when unrestricted free agency opens on March 18. After that, the first round of the NFL draft takes center stage from Las Vegas on April 23. For a breakdown of draft props, we have you covered.
What’s Going to Happen to Brady?
The biggest story of the offseason is undoubtedly the future of Tom Brady. For the first time in his tenure with the New England Patriots, Brady is set to become an unrestricted free agent and is free to sign with whichever team he pleases.
According to the latest odds, if Brady leaves the Pats, the Las Vegas Raiders have the best chance to land him. It’s hard to picture Touchdown Tom in anything but a Patriots jersey, but it’s at least on the table right now.
Chargers are Searching for a QB
Elsewhere on the prop board, the Los Angeles Chargers are in the market for a new quarterback after the team announced it was moving on from longtime signal-caller Philip Rivers. With Tyrod Taylor already on the roster for another year, the Virginia Tech product is the +150 favorite to be the Bolts’ starting quarterback in Week 1 of the 2020 campaign.
Teddy Bridgewater (+500), Tua Tagovailoa (+500), Brady (+600) and Justin Herbert (+900) are next on the docket. L.A. has the sixth overall selection in the draft and could easily select its QB of the future with that pick. The Miami Dolphins, who sit above them at No. 5, are expected to take a quarterback.
With Joe Burrow likely going off the board to the Cincinnati Bengals at No. 1 and the Dolphins reportedly favoring Tagovailoa, I can foresee the Chargers going with Herbert in that spot.
Franchise Tags Likely Incoming for These Players
In franchise tag news, the book is offering odds on whether Chris Jones, Dak Prescott and Ryan Tannehill will be franchise-tagged by their respective teams. Jones’ stellar performance in Super Bowl 54 has made this a no-brainer for the Chiefs, as K.C. giving him the tag is -300 chalk for a reason. Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys are still far apart on a contract extension, so seeing him at -500 to receive the franchise tag is not much of a surprise, either.
Tannehill’s resurgence in his first year with the Tennessee Titans has made Titans fans forget about Marcus Mariota. The ex-Miami Dolphin signed a one-year “prove it” contract with Tennessee last year and rewarded the front office by taking the Titans all the way to the AFC championship game despite an ugly 2-4 start to the season.
It’s nearly a foregone conclusion that the Titans will retain Tannehill for at least another year, so expect the YES at -500 for him to get tagged to cash.
