Deshaun Watson Odds: What team will sign Watson?
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is unhappy. This is not a new revelation as Watson has vocalized his frustration via social media for weeks. The Texans are under fire for the way that they have handled player personnel and for some of the suspect trades that have happened recently. It is reminiscent of the Antonio Brown situation. The Deshaun Watson odds are out, but the team that will actually sign him is not the favorite. Now with Matthew Stafford in the mix, Watson’s trade destination may change.

Update Jan 26, 2021
The Watson Watch continues. The speculation continues to grow on social media and fans all over the league are hoping that Watson somehow gets traded to their team.
However, it seems as though it is a two-team race and the reports keep coming in that Watson only wants to play with two teams next season.
If you follow the money, it is clear that the New York Jets are still considered the team to trade for Watson in the off-season. The Jets have steadily dropped on the NFL props betting board. The Jets opened at +1000, went down to +375 and the latest odds show that they have dropped again. If you are going to bet on the Jets to trade for Watson you may want to do it now.

It’s official, the Deshaun Watson odds are clearly reflecting that the New York Jets are the front runners to land the young superstar.

The Texans are going to hire a new coach. If you think that will persuade Watson to stay in Houston, think again. The odds of Watson staying in Hoston are dropping dramatically.
The New York media is embracing the Watson rumors. Can you blame them? The Jets have not been relevant for a decade. The latest sports betting odds show that they have a reason to get excited.

Update Jan 21, 2021
Don’t look now, but the Deshaun Watson to the New York Jets is gaining momentum. It’s the NFL and anything can happen, but certain tweets are ones that you will want to see. The odds are starting to cook and they tell an interesting story that you have to read.
This is a unique situation because Watson has a no-trade clause, so he can dictate where he may go. He is getting some very public advice from other veteran players in the NFL that will follow him if Houston decides to trade him to New York.
It is still uncertain if the Texans will trade Watson, or where he will go, but if I was going to bet on it right now. I would bet on the Jets.

So the real question is…..

Deshaun Watson Odds
There are multiple sportsbooks posting odds for Watson’s landing spot. The odds below are from a combination of BetOnline, MyBookie and, BetUS. Get the latest odds HERE.
The Texans are in damage control mode and there is no doubt that they want to keep Watson on the team. They have essentially no draft capital and trading Watson will equate to a rebuild. They are still trying to recover from a public relations standpoint after parting ways with D’Andre Hopkins. But if you are a Texans fan, a trade may be the best scenario at this point.
Stories like this get leaked for a reason. Watson wants out and he is forcing the Texans to trade him.
The Dolphins recently acquired a new young quarterback to lead this franchise, but it will be hard for this team to pass on Watson if the price is right. If you are going to bet on the Dolphins to trade for Watson you may want to make that bet now. Everything you read suggests that Watson wants to play in Miami and the Dolphins have the assets.
It looks good on paper, but will the Dolphins want to give up what they have acquired? If the Dolphins believe in Tua Tagovailoa they will be fools to give up all of the picks they have this season. Perhaps more importantly, will the Texans do it? This is a team that is making horrible moves but will they be willing to trade their franchise quarterback for their own pick? The Dolphins will have to give Houston everything to make this deal and the Dolphins may not be ready to make this move.
The Jets are the team that needs to make this move. They have a new coach and they can give the Texans Sam Darnold in return. This deal makes more sense. The Texans will not be rebuilding by getting a QB in return and they can get a top pick in the NFL draft. The Jets are also trying to remove the stink of a failing franchise and a trade of this magnitude will give the Jets positive headlines for the first time in a long time. Watson will not be traded soon, but the Jets are the best landing spot right now.
