Superstars like Odell Beckham Jr. are typically among the first snatched up once free agency begins. But that was not the case this year, as OBJ was (and still is) recovering from a torn ACL. Someone will eventually sign him, of course, and DraftKings is offering betting odds on what team that will be.

He likely wants to sign with a contender, and if the odds on Beckham’s next team are any indication, he may return to a familiar team.

Next Team Odds for Odell Beckham Jr.

The top half of the oddsboard at DraftKings features many of the best teams in the NFL. Some do not necessarily need a wide receiver, but even those teams would be foolish not to consider him. He’d be an instant upgrade to any wide receiver room.

Rams +150
Bills +250
Packers +350
Ravens +550
Cowboys +1000
Saints +2000
Colts +2000
Chiefs +2200
Broncos +2500
Buccaneers +3000
49ers +3500
Chargers +3500
Cardinals +3500
Titans +4500
Dolphins +4500
Raiders +4500

Of the teams listed, the ones with the most cap space (according to the NFLPA salary cap report) are the Raiders ($22.9 million), Cowboys ($21.6 million), Dolphins ($20.3 million), Cardinals ($18.6 million), and Packers ($15.6million).

However, it is worth mentioning that no one claimed OBJ off waivers last season when the Browns released him. When the Rams signed him, it was just a one-year, $1.25 million deal. Demand for his services was probably not great because he had been unproductive in Cleveland —which was not the case during his time with the Rams.

If he is not signed in the immediate future, he will undoubtedly get plenty of attention when he is declared fit to play.

Betting Analysis: Beckham’s Next Team

OBJ is the kind of guy who might sign with a lesser team just because the public doesn’t think he will. Does this possibility warrant taking a flyer on the Giants (+15000), or the Panthers, Lions, Texans, Jaguars, Steelers, Seahawks, or Jets (all at +10000)?

Not at all. OBJ will sign with a contender.

The Rams are obviously in the mix after how things went last season. But if OBJ demands too much money, the Rams could decide to stick with Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson as their dynamic duo. Rumors have Buffalo as a potential landing spot, but like the Rams, the need may not be significant.

Green Bay, however, could use Beckham. After trading Davante Adams to the Raiders, Aaron Rodgers does not have a reliable, go-to wide receiver heading into the 2022 NFL season. Adding a player of OBJ’s caliber could push the Packers to the top of Super Bowl 57 odds. There have been no rumors indicating interest on either side, but adding OBJ to the roster could be the boost that Kyler Murray and the Cardinals need to get over the top.

Our Pick: For now, all signs appear to be pointing to a return to the Rams. Green Bay should try to sign him, and there was some interest last year. But, at the moment, there is no reason to believe he could sign with the Packers.
