Tom Brady Odds: Raiders/Chargers Share Top Odds to Sign the QB

Tom Brady Odds: Which Team Will He Play for in 2020?

The New England Patriots have been the standard of success in the NFL for the better part of the past 20 years, but following the Pats’ loss to the Tennessee Titans on Wild Card Weekend, many fans and pundits alike are questioning whether this is truly the end of a dynasty in Massachusetts.

New England entered the game as a 4.5-point favorite but failed to score a point in the second half of a 20-13 loss to Ryan Tannehill’s Titans. Brady finished the game by going 20-for-37 for 209 yards, no touchdowns and an interception – a last-second pick-six that has people wondering if it’s going to be his last pass in a Patriots uniform.

Brady’s Future is Up in the Air

Brady’s contract is up with the conclusion of the season on March 17. He’s 42 years old and is coming off one of the most frustrating campaigns of his career. Amid constant speculation that he’ll play elsewhere in 2020 or retire, BetOnline is offering odds on the future of the future Hall of Famer.

The shop believes he’ll be back in New England, as Brady has a -250 chance to be on the Patriots roster in Week 1 of the 2020 season, with the odds of him being elsewhere at +170. That said, we are just about one month away from the start of free agency and there has yet to be an agreement between the star quarterback and the team he paved his path with.

During Super Bowl 54, an ambiguous tweet from Brady was addressed in the form of a Hulu commercial, with the 14-time Pro Bowler saying “I’m not going anywhere.” That sentiment all but rules out retirement, but it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s staying put in New England, either.

Which Other Teams Could Pursue Brady?

Brady did have some interesting comments regarding his own personal future after the loss to the Titans, only making the swirling rumors of him leaving the Patriots louder by saying “Who knows what the future holds? We’ll leave it at that.”

As a result, the sportsbook is dealing fresh odds on which team (other than the Patriots) he could play for in 2020. The Las Vegas Raiders (+300), Los Angeles Chargers (+300), Tennessee Titans (+700), Indianapolis Colts (+900), Carolina Panthers (+1200), Dallas Cowboys (+1400), Miami Dolphins (+1400), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+1400), Chicago Bears (+1600) and New Orleans Saints (+1600) are topping the list.

Raiders Reportedly Have Their Sights Set on the QB

On Super Bowl Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the Raiders are poised to pursue Brady if he doesn’t re-sign with the Patriots before free agency begins. With the franchise departing Oakland in favor of Sin City, the appeal of playing for the Raiders is significantly increased ahead of the team’s inaugural campaign in Nevada. 

New England is expected to want to have a decision made before the free-agent signing period gets underway on March 18. Brady has said he’s “open-minded” about the free-agent process, so it makes sense that other clubs have already tried to explore the possibility of signing him.

The Raiders aren’t necessarily married to starting QB Derek Carr, and a big-name splash in free agency will help to garner buzz around the team in Las Vegas.

Chargers, Colts Make Sense as Landing Places

While the idea of the six-time Super Bowl winner playing for the perennially downtrodden Browns seems a bit far-fetched, the most realistic option in my eyes is the Chargers. L.A. has already stated it’s moving on from longtime quarterback Philip Rivers in the offseason, and Brady – a California native – might not be opposed to returning to his home state if he and the Patriots can’t come to an agreement.

The Patriots have long been a thorn in the Colts’ side, so don’t be surprised if Indianapolis makes a strong charge to pursue the legendary QB. Jacoby Brissett had an up-and-down season as the starter after the surprise retirement of Andrew Luck, and his long-term future with the team is unclear right now. Brady in a Colts uniform feels pretty unrealistic, but stranger things have happened in the NFL.

Do you think Brady is going to retire? If not, will he come back as a Patriot or pursue other options in the offseason? Have your say in the comments.

Betting on Tom Brady’s Odds

Besides betting on individual football games, you can bet on where Tom Brady will end up for the 2020 NFL season. As an elite quarterback, there is much interest in whether he’ll retire, stay with New England or move on to another team.

At the sportsbook, the odds would look something like this:


What team will Tom Brady be on next season?
  • Patriots -210
  • None/Retired +150
  • Chargers +300
  • Bears +1200

Let’s say you believe the QB is going to call it quits. If you were to make a $50 prop bet – more on that later – and he did hang up his cleats, you would get a payout of $125 – your original $50 is returned along with your winnings of $75. Our Odds Calculator will show you what you’d collect based on the odds and amount bet.

When bookmakers create these betting lines, they look at everything from New England’s chances of winning another Super Bowl to Brady’s age, his family life, net worth, overall health and real estate news – if he sells his pad in Massachusetts and buys a home in Illinois, he may be looking at playing for a team there.

What is a Prop Bet?

A prop is a bet made on the occurrence or non-occurrence of certain events that may not correlate directly to the outcome of a game. Instead of betting on the spread or taking the Patriots to win straight up, in this case, you’d be making a prop bet on Tom Brady’s odds to play in the NFL for another team, end his playing career, or stay with New England.
