Cleveland Browns now have the best betting odds to sign WR DeAndre Hopkins

According to DraftKings, the Cleveland Browns are the betting favorites to land former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

CLEVELAND — Earlier this week, Deshaun Watson said that he would welcome the opportunity to reunite with DeAndre Hopkins on the Cleveland Browns.

If the betting odds are to be believed, there's a good chance that the Browns quarterback will be getting his wish.

On Friday, the DraftKings Sportsbook released new odds for Hopkins' next team, after the five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was released by the Arizona Cardinals in a cost-cutting move last week. At +100, Cleveland is the betting favorite, with the Browns leading the Buffalo Bills (+300) and Kansas City Chiefs (+400).

DraftKings' full odds for Hopkins' next team are as follows:

  • Cleveland Browns +100
  • Buffalo Bills +300
  • Kansas City Chiefs +400
  • New England Patriots +1000
  • Houston Texans +1000
  • Dallas Cowboys +1200
  • Baltimore Ravens +1200
  • Detroit Lions +1800
  • New York Jets +2000
  • Miami Dolphins +2200
  • Tennessee Titans +2200
  • Los Angeles Chargers +2500
  • New York Giants +3000
  • New Orleans Saints +3500
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +3500
  • Philadelphia Eagles +4000
  • Chicago Bears +4000
  • Denver Broncos +4000
  • Seattle Seahawks +4500
  • Los Angeles Rams +4500
  • Carolina Panthers +5000
  • San Francisco 49ers +6000
  • Atlanta Falcons +6000
  • Green Bay Packers +6500
  • Minnesota Vikings +6500
  • Cincinnati Bengals +7000
  • Las Vegas Raiders +8000
  • Indianapolis Colts +8000
  • Washington Commanders +10000
  • Pittsburgh Steelers +10000
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers +10000

For the betting uninitiated, a successful $100 wager on Cleveland at +100 would result in a $100 profit. The betting odds suggest an implied 50 percent chance of the Browns landing Hopkins, who ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported earlier this week would be "open" to signing with Cleveland.

That the Browns have been so consistently linked to Hopkins doesn't come as much of a surprise, as the best season of the Clemson product's career came with Watson as his quarterback on the Houston Texans. Speaking to reporters at the Browns' annual charity golf outing on Tuesday, Watson discussed the possibility of reuniting with his former Texans teammate.

"Of course we would love to have him," Watson told reporters. "He knows that we had a lot of connections, but that's kind of out of my range of things. So all I can do is make a call and see what happens and let AB [Browns general manager Andrew Berry] do the rest."
