The NFL offseason never sleeps, and the Patriots sent shockwaves around the league on Sunday after signing former MVP Cam Newton.
But how has Newton joining New England impacted NFL betting markets at William Hill?
On Sunday morning, the Patriots were tied with the Steelers and Colts for the 10th-lowest odds at 25/1 to win Super Bowl 55. They were also tied with the Bills for the third-best odds to win the AFC at 10/1.
After the acquisition of Newton, New England’s Super Bowl futures moved to 18/1 (tied for seventh) and its AFC futures dropped to 8/1.
There were some smaller shifts involving the Patriots as well. Their price to capture another AFC East went from 3/2 (+150) to 7/5 (+140), with the Bills remaining the 5/4 (+125) favorite. The Patriots’ win total remained at 9, though the over is now favored at -125 from +120.
One New Jersey bettor placed $1,050 on Patriots over 9 wins (-105) Sunday night for a potential total payout of $2,050.
While New England remains a 6.5-point home favorite over the Dolphins in its season opener, its moneyline has gone up slightly from -270 to -280. The Patriots’ spread did change in their Week 2 contest at the Seahawks, as they are now 3.5-point underdogs instead of +4.
Newton himself has also generated noteworthy action on some player props.
A Nevada bettor put down $500 on Newton 100/1 to be awarded the 2020-21 MVP Sunday night for a potential total payout of $50,500. He is now listed at 40/1 to win his second MVP, tied with fellow signal-callers Baker Mayfield and Matt Ryan for the 16th-lowest odds.
Meanwhile, another New Jersey bettor placed $200 on Newton 10/1 to be named the 2020-21 Comeback Player of the Year for a potential total payout of $2,200. Newton is currently 4/1 in this market, just behind the co-favorites of Rob Gronkowski and Ben Roethlisberger at 7/2 (+350).
