Cleveland Browns no longer have best betting odds to sign DeAndre Hopkins

According to the DraftKings Sportsbook, the Cleveland Browns now have the second-best odds behind the Buffalo Bills to sign DeAndre Hopkins.

CLEVELAND — Last week, the DraftKings Sportsbook gave the Cleveland Browns the best odds to sign free-agent wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

But while the Browns remained the betting favorites to land the five-time Pro Bowl wideout as recently as Wednesday, those odds have since shifted, with Cleveland now trailing the Buffalo Bills, per DraftKings.

Having once been a -150 favorite -- an implied 60 percent chance -- to sign Hopkins, the Browns' odds of inking the Clemson product are now listed at +250, an implied 28.57 percent chance of happening. At +250, Cleveland trails Buffalo (+200), but remains ahead of the Detroit Lions (+380), the Tennessee Titans (+700) and the Kansas City Chiefs (+850).

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

  • Buffalo Bills +200
  • Cleveland Browns +250
  • Detroit Lions +380
  • Tennessee Titans +700
  • Kansas City Chiefs +850
  • New England Patriots +1100
  • Baltimore Ravens +1600
  • Houston Texans +1600
  • Chicago Bears +2200
  • Dallas Cowboys +2500
  • New York Jets +2800
  • Los Angeles Chargers +3500
  • New York Giants +3500
  • Miami Dolphins +3500
  • Jacksonville Jaguars +3500
  • New Orleans Saints +3500
  • Denver Broncos +4000
  • Philadelphia Eagles +4000
  • Los Angeles Rams +4500
  • Seattle Seahawks +4500
  • Carolina Panthers +5000
  • Atlanta Falcons +6000
  • San Francisco 49ers +6000
  • Minnesota Vikings +6500
  • Green Bay Packers +6500
  • Cincinnati Bengals +7000
  • Indianapolis Colts (+8000)
  • Las Vegas Raiders (+8000)
  • Pittsburgh Steelers (+10000)
  • Washington Commanders (+10000)
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+10000)

The recent shift in odds comes one day after Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network reported that Hopkins will be visiting with the Titans -- his first free-agent visit since being released by the Arizona Cardinals last month. Since being released, Hopkins has consistently been linked to Cleveland, due largely to his connection with Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson, who he played with as a member of the Houston Texans from 2016-2019.

Speaking to reporters at Cleveland's mandatory offseason minicamp on Wednesday, Watson was asked about the possibility of the Browns signing his former teammate. And while the 3-time Pro Bowl quarterback said that he spoke to Hopkins recently, he didn't have any indication of where the 30-year-old wideout will land.

"I have no idea. That's more of a [Browns general manager Andrew Berry and head coach Kevin Stefanski] question," Watson said. "For me, I have no idea where that stands. As I said last week, of course we would love to and we'll see how things go."
