|New Orleans Saints||+400|
|Kansas City Chiefs||+600|
|New England Patriots||+800|
Odds on which team Deebo Samuel will play his next snap for have been released by PointsBet and the Jets are the early favorites to trade for the gadget weapon.
At +300, the implied odds that he’s traded to the Jets is 25%.
That’s not withstanding the chance that he stays with the 49ers, which is not incorporated into these implied odds because all bets would be void should Samuel stay put.
Samuel requested a trade from San Francisco, NFL Network reported on Wednesday.
The RB/WR is in the final year of his rookie contract and has yet to be extended. He’s due to be a free agent after the 2022 season but is a prime candidate to get the franchise tag.
It’s a moniker he wants to avoid in order to solidify long-term profits elsewhere — and with an immediate guarantee.
There have also been reports that he’s unhappy with his role with the 49ers insofar that he’s taken a lot more hits since transitioning into a hybrid wide receiver-running back. NFL Network has reported that he sees himself as a top receiver — not necessarily also as a running back.
Tied at +400 apiece are the Packers, Saints and Eagles, who all have needs at skill positions.
The Packers traded DaVante Adams earlier this offseason and all signs point toward Green Bay shoring up its supporting cast. They have extensive draft capital from the Adams trade to use for Samuel.
The Saints could use another offensive tool with Michael Thomas’ injury issues the last several seasons. A double-headed snake of Alvin Kamara and Samuel would prove incredibly formidable.
Meanwhile, the Eagles could use reinforcements for DeVonta Smith and Miles Sanders, especially after a season in which Jalen Hurts proved he could lead a team to the playoffs.
The Colts (+500) and Chiefs (+600) are next up on the list. Indianapolis doesn’t have a first-round pick in this upcoming draft, while the Chiefs’ pick is at No. 30.
The rest of the teams’ odds are +800 or longer, which indicates an implied probability lower than 11%.
