Tom Brady free agency odds: Smart money has Brady signing with Chargers or Colts

The prospect of Tom Brady leaving the Patriots promises to dominate conversations in NFL circles for the next several months. For the first time ever, the greatest quarterback of all-time is slated to be a free agent in March.

Despite the ominous words from both sides about Brady’s future — Patriots owner Robert Kraft told NBC’s Peter King he “prays” TB12 remains with the Patriots — the early betting lines still indicate Brady is expected to return to New England. But it is close. The odds of Brady being on the Patriots in Week 1 lie at -150, according to the online gambling platform SportsBetting.ag, and the odds of him playing elsewhere stand at +150.

While 21 other NFL teams are listed as possibilities for Brady, only the top six clubs appear to be shrewd bets: Chargers, Panthers, Raiders, Browns and Cowboys. Each team’s odds of landing Brady are below, followed by analysis as to whether they would be a wise choice to back.
