Think you know where OBJ will land? You can bet on it

With Odell Beckham Jr. poised to become available on waivers and then, after that, a potential free agent, the sports books have generated as to his next team.

PointsBet has posted its own odds. Here’s a look at them.

The Raiders are the favorite at +300, followed by the Saints and Patriots at +450. The Ravens land at +550, followed by the Bills at +700. Next are the 49ers, Packers, and Seahawks at +1200.

The Titans are at +1400, following by the Colts and Eagles at +1600. The Vikings come in at +2000, with the Rams and Panthers at +2200.

If I were a betting man, I’d take the Seahawks at 12-1. That’s one of the three teams that should be watched, we’re told, along with the 49ers and Saints.

  1. I don’t think the Ravens are interested (need RBs not WRs). My money would be on the Raiders and the Packers

  2. You can count Detroit out. They don’t have a QB who has the physical ability to throw a football.

  3. Is there a way to bet that the Bills won’t take him ? They currently have an abundance of receivers who fit well in their team first culture. There is No Way they bring in a player like OBJ and upset their team chemistry.

  4. Won’t it be who’s the highest on the waiver wire? Not like OBJ has a choice. Jets or Lions likely.

  5. I think you’ll find a surprise team claim him simply to keep others from claiming him. For example, a team in the fight for a playoff spot won’t want him to go to someone they may face. It all depends on the waiver priority. Seattle would probably be the betting favorite then as they would be 9th in order. Next would be the 49ers at 12th, then Patriots at 18th, Panthers 19th, Saints 23rd, Bills 24th, Ravens 25th, Raiders 26th, Rams 30th and Packers 32nd. Seattle would probably claim him just to keep the Rams and 49ers from getting him. I’d say put your money on Seattle.

  6. There’s no way the Hawks are interested. We have no draft capital to give away in the off season, and very little cap space to overpay on a Diva WR. So unless OBJ can play corner or O-Line, there’s no chance we’d even consider him an option.

  7. As bubba said – who would want this guy? I say NFW – if you know what I mean – cancer in the locker room and as many people have said – THAT SHIP HAS SAILED

    Why would any team want this guy?
    —————————————-

    Because he’s probably better than anybody else you have catching passes. Duh!

  9. “The Bills currently have an abundance of receivers who fit well in their team first culture. There is No Way they bring in a player like OBJ and upset their team chemistry.”

    Are you forgetting that Stephon Diggs forced a trade out of his last team and after he scored his first touchdown was yelling about paying him? He’s literally an OBJ style player, not a team first player, but it’s working amazingly for the Bills because they are paying him highly, he’s their star #1 WR on a top team in the league with a top QB in the league. Probably best not to try to fit OBJ in that too since what they have is working great, but Diggs should not be included in the “abundance of team first receivers”

  10. There’s no way the Hawks are interested. We have no draft capital to give away in the off season, and very little cap space to overpay on a Diva WR. So unless OBJ can play corner or O-Line, there’s no chance we’d even consider him an option.

    Claiming him won’t cost any draft capital. In fact, if they claim him then he signs somewhere else in free agency they’d likely get a compensatory 3rd round pick. They entertained the thought of signing AB and they also had Josh Gordon. Why exactly wouldn’t they be interested in OBJ, especially if they were in the hunt for a playoff spot?

  11. His cap number is way too high for this contract to get claimed. After he clears, my money is on him going to KC. They are missing Watkins’ ability to make defenses fear an over the top route.

  12. He’ll want to sign with a team are are contenders or who can convince him he’ll make them contenders. Signing OBJ and Desean Jackson would immediately upgrade a receiving corps, if a team has a QB who can accurately throw the ball.

  13. Russell Wilson on the line for John Schneider: Take this bad boy and use my contract for cap space.

  14. Why not the Chiefs? They are in obvious need, tried to bring in Juju this off-season, called in Josh Gordon out of desperation, and have the top shelf QB and explosive offense OBJ wants to spring board into another contact this off-season. I think he’s a slam dunk to KC.

    Ya think so? I would be glad to take the other side of that for as much as you want.
