According to fresh odds and multiple reports, the Tom Brady sweepstakes appear to be down to two teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots.
The Tennessee Titans are not interested in the veteran quarterback. At one point, Tennessee was listed with 4/1 odds to land Brady in the offseason.
In fact, ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reported earlier today that the Titans have reached a four-year deal that could pay veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill up to $118 million.
On Sunday afternoon, the Westgate SuperBook released updated odds for Brady’s first snap of the 2020-21 NFL regular season. New England and Tampa Bay are now co-favorites at -110.
The Los Angeles Chargers and San Francisco 49ers are both listed at 8/1. Las Vegas is 25/1 and ‘no snap taken’ is 40/1. Tennessee has dropped to 100/1 after Sunday’s reports.
Chris Simms of NBC Sports reported earlier today that San Francisco is out of the mix and that Brady will decide between the Patriots and Buccaneers.
Props have been updated for Brady going back to January. He opened as a -300 favorite to return to the Patriots, but those odds dropped to -120 in late February when ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reported that Brady was open to playing for another team.
Las Vegas opened at 6/1 to land Brady in January, but became a +175 ‘chalk’ in February if he chose somewhere other than New England. The Raiders are now 25/1.
Brady has played 20 seasons in New England, which is the most ever with a single team by a quarterback. The Patriots have gone to nine Super Bowls with the veteran under center.
Tannehill took over for Marcus Mariota as Tennessee’s starter on Oct. 20 last season. He completed 70.3 percent of his passes and threw 22 touchdowns in 10 starts.
The Titans reached the AFC Championship before losing to the eventual Super Bowl winner at Kansas City. Tennessee went 9-4 against the spread in the games that Tannehill started and 10 of the 13 games went ‘over’ the total.
