In the hunt for Kirk Cousins, the team that Vegas is heavily favoring isn’t the Denver Broncos. They are second to the overwhelming favorite; the Minnesota Vikings. According to Bovada.lv, the Vikings are incredible 1/3 odds to land Cousins in free agency with the Broncos trailing at 10/3 odds.
Updated odds from https://t.co/eQax7GS8k6 for team to sign Cousins:— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) March 7, 2018
Minnesota Vikings 1/3
Denver Broncos 10/3
New York Jets 5/1
Arizona Cardinals 15/1
The hype is significant enough for Vikings players to begin following Cousins on Twitter. A trend that is significant because that is usually a sign a player is about to become a teammate. I checked Von Miller’s account and he hasn’t followed Cousins on Twitter yet.
The good news - if you are a Cousins to the Broncos fan - is that Denver has improved its odds in recent days. They surpassed the New Yok Jets and significantly closed the gap on the Vikings since the weekend. They were 10/1 odds when the NFL Combine got underway.
With five days until the legal tampering period begins, the Broncos are in position to at least make a play - it just might not be enough of a play to overcome the interest the Vikings appear to have.
