Patriots Sit Top 3 In AFC After Signing Cam Newton

  • Former Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton agreed to a 1-year-$7.5 million deal with the New England Patriots.
  • The Patriots now have the fifth shortest odds at +1200 to win the Super Bowl.
  • New England has the third shortest odds at +700 to be the AFC Champion.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Cam Newton has finally found a home as the former MVP QB has signed a 1-year deal with the New England Patriots.

Since the announcement, the Patriots conference championship and Super Bowl odds have shortened, showing that books are feeling this move will have a positive effect on the team.

New England Patriots bettors have wasted no time, taking action on their team just moments after the official announcement.

Before the $7.5 million deal, the Patriots odds were at +2200 to win the Super Bowl.

These odds have shortened drastically to +1200.

Super Bowl 55 Winner

  • Kansas City Chiefs +650
  • Baltimore Ravens +700
  • San Francisco 49ers +900
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers +1000
  • New England Patriots +1200
  • New Orleans Saints +1200

What Cam brings to the table are his athleticism and his decision making.

During his last healthy season in 2018, Newton had a 67.9% completion average. This percentage is even better than his 2015 MVP numbers where he threw for 59.8% completion.

With Bill Belichick as his coach, there is no telling how good Cam can be under that system.

In addition to the Super Bowl odds, the New England Patriots also saw their AFC Championship odds shorten.

Prior to signing Cam Newton when their Tom Brady replacement was still up in the air, the Patriots were getting almost no action at online sportsbooks.

Now, the team has the third shortest odds to win the AFC, right behind the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens.

AFC Champion

  • Kansas City Chiefs +300
  • Baltimore Ravens +333
  • New England Patriots +700
  • Indianapolis Colts +1100
  • Pittsburgh Steelers +1200

Betting on the Patriots to win the Super Bowl is surely going to rake in even more action as the season progresses.

Since Cam is signing with the Patriots and COVID-19 is taking up much of the focus on the NFL world, the odds will shorten even more.
