Super Bowl odds for Cardinals, others shift with offseason movement
The NFL offseason has already involved a few significant moves that have changed the futures of certain teams.
The biggest shift comes out east, where the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl odds plummeted after Tom Brady announced Tuesday morning he will not be returning to the franchise where he has spent his entire career. Upon that news, Oddsshark has the Pats going from +1200 to win the big game to +2500.
As for his new destination, reportedly the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the addition of Brady has unsurprisingly given them major life. Their odds have improved from +3300 to +1200.
The Arizona Cardinals are still looked at as longshots after adding All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins in a trade with the Houston Texans. That gives the Cardinals a legitimate trio at wideout for Kyler Murray and Kliff Kingsbury to play with, putting Hopkins alongside Larry Fitzgerald and Christian Kirk.
Arizona’s odds got stronger, shifting from +8000 to +5000, but that still has them in the bottom half of the league.
In the NFC West, Bovada still has the Cardinals as the team with the toughest odds at +500. The San Francisco 49ers remain in front at -125, followed by the Seattle Seahawks at +350 and Los Angeles Rams at +400.
The other big name on the move was wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who got dealt by the Minnesota Vikings to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for a haul of draft picks.
Buffalo adds a legit No. 1 like Arizona to a now-solid supporting cast of weapons in running back Devin Singletary and pass-catchers John Brown and Cole Beasley for improving young quarterback Josh Allen. The Bills’ odds improved to +3300.
