Where Will Odell Beckham Jr. Land? Here Are The Odds

Odell Beckham Jr.

On Friday, the Browns informed wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. that he’ll be released. Beckham requested to be traded numerous times this season, according to reports, and the first one came in the offseason while recuperating from a torn ACL — suffered against the Bengals in October 2020.

Beckham recorded 17 catches (via 32 targets) for 232 receiving yards in six games this season. His 18.8% target share is the lowest in his eight-year career thus far.

Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio notes that Beckham has granted a “revised contract that reduces the team’s obligation to pay Beckham, if he’s not claimed on waivers and becomes eligible for the balance of his salary termination pay.” But the salary can’t dip to the point where he’s claimed off waivers, as the wideout is set on choosing his next team.

Below are the odds that PointsBet Sportsbook released for where Beckham Jr. could end up.

Among these teams, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler suggested the Raiders, Saints, Panthers, Seahawks, 49ers and Packers as potential suitors for Beckham.

Betting on any of these options are difficult to bet before more information leaks out, but I’m most intrigued by San Francisco at +1200. Although Kyle Shanahan’s team has underachieved in 2021 (2-5 against the spread), it’s dealt with a slew of offensive injuries, including All-Pro tight end George Kittle (calf) missing the last three games.

49ers signal caller Jimmy Garoppolo is seemingly criticized every snap, but he ranks No. 12 among quarterbacks in expected points added (EPA) per play — ahead of the Ravens’ Lamar Jackson and Chargers’ Justin Herbert.

  • EPA is calculated by expected points scored based on the down, distance, and field position at the start of a play — juxtaposed with the play’s conclusion.

Aligning Beckham on the outside with either Deebo Samuel or Brandon Ayiuk in the slot would give this offense an even more explosive outlook. I’ve even considered San Francisco as a long-shot to win the NFC at +3500.
