After the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just cashed as 60-1 Super Bowl long shots, bettors would love to beat the market on a quarterback changing teams this offseason. However, it isn’t that simple. For example, after landing Carson Wentz in a trade with Philadelphia, the Indianapolis Colts saw their title odds shift only slightly, from 25-1 to 20-1. That’s because oddsmakers were well aware of the speculation that Wentz could reunite with his former offensive coordinator, current Colts head coach Frank Reich. So be careful assuming that oddsmakers think Wentz is only a slight upgrade from Jacoby Brissett; bookmakers knew the Colts were going to land a QB.
Moving forward, while we expect more quarterback movement in the coming weeks, finding that golden ticket is still possible. You just have to read the tea leaves. The fact that some bettors speculated at this time last year that the Bucs could land an all-timer like Tom Brady is that much more impressive.
