Play the Deshaun Watson Next Team Destination Bet Cautiously
Some quarterbacks will undoubtedly be on the move this offseason, and as for anything, there is a betting market for predicting their destination. The FanDuel Sportsbook available in Colorado had it on the board where Deshaun Watson and Matthew Stafford would end up. Watson is really the story right now as he is requesting a trade out of Houston, despite the new coaching hire. Watson’s odds were +120 to stay with the Texans while the Jets were the top team for a new destination. Watson heading to New York is at +225, while the Dolphins are next on the board at +250. The Broncos and Washington are around 10-1 to 12-1 one, while the Dallas Cowboys sit at +1500. Those are most of the teams the FanDuel Sportsbook sees are the most likely options for Watson. The Eagles are a very interesting team and are sitting at a lot of value at 25-1.
A lot of teams in the NFL are going to make a push for Deshaun Watson, and one of the team’s not on the list is probably going to be in the mix as well. Not because the oddsmakers aren’t good at their job but because the oddsmakers are being asked to do something impossible, which is handicap a market that they do not have an insider or any sharp information. Unlike the NFL markets, when there’s a bet placed on a team by one of their sharp handicappers, so there is a baseline to start from. They know, all right, this is coming from a respected source. There are no respected sources in this field. So this market is a bit of a crapshoot and a callous one to handicap. As a gambler, if you want to make a significant wager on this market, be very mindful that this market will be tilted by the news, news that could be fake. Be very careful if and when this market gets posted in New Jersey and obviously across the country cause it’s very tough to handicap.
