With the Carolina Panthers officially releasing quarterback Cam Newton on Tuesday, the question facing the NFL world is, where will he play next?
That's a question the gambling world has been asking for weeks now, and the answer depends on who you ask.
The Washington Redskins entered the week the clear-cut favorites to land Newton, with second-year quarterback Dwayne Haskins slotted as the current starter. But news broke Monday that the Redskins traded for Kyle Allen -- who replaced an injured Newton in Carolina last season -- and bettors looking to cash in on Newton's landing spot suddenly have a variety of options with reasonable odds.
At DraftKings, the Jacksonville Jaguars lead the way at 250 (2.5-to-1 odds), followed by the Los Angeles Chargers and New England Patriots at 300, then the Redskins at 400. A big drop-off then comes after that, with Miami next at 1000.
Bet MGM has the same top five, but in a different order:
--Dolphins / Jaguars (350)
--Patriots / Redskins (500)
The Chargers (Philip Rivers) and Patriots (Tom Brady) are replacing longtime quarterbacks this season while the Jaguars recently traded Nick Foles away to the Bears and have second-year player Gardner Minshew penciled as their starter.
The Dolphins have spent years searching for their long-term answer at quarterback and currently have Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh Rosen expected to battle for the starting job. But numerous prognosticators have Miami taking a quarterback with the fifth overall pick in the upcoming draft, with Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa the name most frequently linked to the team.
The Chargers also are expected to target a quarterback in the draft and own the sixth pick. Tyrod Taylor is currently their top signal caller.
