Odell Beckham Jr Odds

The odds on Odell Beckham’s next team have been released. If the odds are correct OBJ will be headed to play with Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders. However, the Raiders are not alone on the top of the odds list. The New Orleans Saints, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, and the New England Patriots are also on the top of the wish-list for destinations for OBJ.

Here is a list of the current odds:

Things to Consider

Technically OBJ is not a free agent. He has to clear waivers and of course, finances always play a role in acquiring any new player. Then you have to consider where OBJ wants to play. He will want to play with a contender and he will want to get the ball. This is not an easy combination to find.

Watching the Waivers

According to the ESPN article, the Browns converted his base salary into a signing bonus to lower the financial hit. But the waivers are the important part. This will take some time and he cannot be claimed on waivers until next week. The waivers are in reverse order so the Detroit Lions will have first dibs on his services.

Here is a look at the current NFL waiver wire order.

  1. Detroit Lions
  2. Miami Dolphins
  3. Houston Texans
  4. Jacksonville Jaguars
  5. New York Jets
  6. New York Giants
  7. Washington Football Team
  8. Philadelphia Eagles
  9. Seattle Seahawks
  10. Chicago Bears
  11. Atlanta Falcons
  12. San Francisco 49ers
  13. Minnesota Vikings
  14. Indianapolis Colts
  15. New England Patriots
  16. Denver Broncos
  17. Cleveland Browns
  18. Kansas City Chiefs
  19. Carolina Panthers
  20. Los Angeles Chargers
  21. Pittsburgh Steelers
  22. Cincinnati Bengals
  23. New Orleans Saints
  24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  25. Buffalo Bills
  26. Las Vegas Raiders
  27. Dallas Cowboys
  28. Green Bay Packers
  29. Baltimore Ravens
  30. Los Angeles Rams
  31. Tennessee Titans
  32. Arizona Cardinals

Teams To Track

Figuring out where a star player will play next is never easy. Just look at Cam Newton. The Saints and the Raiders are the prohibitive favorites according to the sports betting odds that we have seen. But they are very low on the waiver wire and rivals like the Falcons, Chiefs and the Broncos will have a chance to claim Beckham first. The same can be said for teams like the Rams, Ravens, Bills, and the Buccaneers.

The first real team on the list that has a real shot of claiming OBJ is the San Francisco 49ers. They don’t have the cap room, but if interested they may be able to make it work. The Philadelphia Eagles need a wide receiver and they have the cap space, but will OBJ want to play with a team that is clearly not a contender? The short answer is no, OBJ will need the rest of this year to perform to get a contract. This means he wants to play with a good QB and he wants to play with a contender.

The Best Fit For OBJ

New England Patriots +650

Many believe that the New England Patriots are a good fit, but they are not. The Patriots already spent a boatload of money on new targets and everything is working right now. They are a playoff fringe team that likes to run first. This is not a place where OBJ will shine.

Seattle Seahawks +2500

The Seahawks are ninth in waiver priority and they have the cap space. Although the Seahawks have a dynamic duo at wide receiver with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, OBJ will be a perfect fit. OBJ will take attention off the current pass-catching crew. Russell Wilson is healthy and will return under center. The Seahawks need to win every game if they want to make a playoff run.

Buffalo Bills +500

OBJ will have to clear waivers to get to Buffalo, but this is another nice fit. He will fit in well in this offense alongside Diggs and Sanders and will play with one of the best QBs in the league. This is a team that has Super Bowl aspirations and the community will welcome OBJ with open arms.
