The 2022 NFL betting season is on the back stretch, yet one of the game’s premier wide receivers remains without a team. For now. 

Odell Beckham Jr. has been rehabbing a torn ACL suffered in the Rams’ Super Bowl victory over the Bengals. The free agent didn’t sign with anyone in the offseason, in part due to concerns about his ability to bounce back and find his Pro Bowl form as he turns 30 this season.

But OBJ has been cleared to play and is now on a tour of potential teams – just in time for a postseason run. Beckham isn’t without his detractors, but he also has undeniable talent, and he could really help a contending team in need of a passing-game boost. 

Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has revealed his NFL odds for Odell Beckham and his next team.

Beckham caught 27 passes for 305 yards and five TDs in eight games as the No. 3 WR for the Rams in 2021, and had two receptions for 52 yards and a TD in the Super Bowl before a torn ACL that ended his Super Bowl experience and put most of the 2022 campaign on ice. 

He played his best in the postseason, with 316 yards in four games, including a nine-reception, 113-yard game in the NFC Championship Game vs. the 49ers. 

Odell has shown before that he wants to play for a winner and with an elite QB. That gives a big edge to some teams over others on this list. Earlier this fall, Beckham spoke to Complex Sports about what he's looking for as an NFL return looms

Beckham’s family reportedly prefers Dallas as the destination. The Cowboys traded Amari Cooper this offseason but has CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup, who is rounding into form after his own return from an ACL tear. 

The Cowboys rank a solid 7th in scoring and are only 22nd in passing. Dallas is a contender and could use an extra weapon for QB Dak Prescott, so the move makes sense on both sides. Dallas has been very public about its interest in adding Beckham to the mix.  OBJ will meet with the Cowboys next week as the final leg of his free agency tour.

Speaking of visits, Beckham made an unofficial visit to the Giants in October (to see friends such as Saquon Barkley and Sterling Shepard) and plans to to meet up with them again Dec. 1.

At 7-4, New York is just one game behind Dallas for second place in the NFC East and certainly in a spot to contend for the postseason. Beckham returning to his old stomping grounds would immediately make him the top target for QB Daniel Jones and pair him with the resurgent rusher Barkley. The Giants are 28th in passing, so they need him more than the Cowboys do. 

In terms of cap space, the Cowboys have nearly $8 million immediately available, the Giants only $3.6 million. We'll see if New York brass can get creative enough to make a competitive offer. 

The Buffalo Bills are also on the short list of stops for Beckham. Unlike the other two contending teams, the Bills are in no need of another weapon. The offense ranks No. 2 in scoring, the pass game ranks No. 4. If Beckham's motivation stems more from getting back to a Super Bowl and less on strictly financial reasons (Buffalo currently has under $2 million in cap space), this could be the most-tempting spot. 

The Buccaneers reportedly reached out to Beckham's people. Tampa Bay leads the NFC South and if OBJ wants to play for an elite QB, it doesn't get any more elite than Tom Brady. 

Other teams considered top contenders just a few weeks ago have fallen by the wayside. The offense of the Rams has been a bust, and now Cooper Kupp and Matthew Stafford may be finished for the season. 

The Packers, meanwhile, are void of playmakers in the pass game but it might be too little, too late for the skittish front office. Beckham tweeted praise for Rodgers during Week 4 and admitted aloud the “damage that could be done” if they paired up on the field. But at 4-7 and Aaron Rodgers nursing a myriad of injuries, the Packers are now an outlier to add OBJ.
