DeAndre Hopkins is a free agent.
In a shocking twist to the NFL offseason, the Arizona Cardinals let their star receiver go after months of trade speculation.
Now, the football world wants to know: Where will the five-time Pro Bowler play in 2023?
The sportsbooks already have a hunch or two.
Oddsmakers at PointsBet wasted no time providing odds on where Hopkins may land as training camp approaches, and there will be no shortage of suitors.
DeAndre Hopkins 2023 team odds
Hopkins has already been quite vocal about teams he might be interested in playing for.
During a recent appearance on the “I Am Athlete” podcast, Hopkins listed five quarterbacks he would like to play with in the future: the Bills’ Josh Allen, the Eagles’ Jalen Hurts, the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, the Ravens’ Lamar Jackson and the Chargers’ Justin Herbert.
Let’s take a look at the two teams that are clear favorites to win Hopkins’ services this season.
Kansas City Chiefs +300
It seems as if the Chiefs have been linked to every wide receiver on the market since losing Tyreek Hill, so it’s no surprise they’re one of the favorites to get Hopkins.
Hopkins would be filling a clear hole in the Chiefs offense and could immediately slot in as the team’s No. 1 wideout.
Kansas City is shallow behind Travis Kelce as far as pass-catching options go, and Mahomes surely wouldn’t mind heading into next season with another offensive weapon.
If Hopkins wants to win a Super Bowl, there may be no better option than the Mahomes-led Chiefs.

Buffalo Bills +300
The Bills are still looking for their first Super Bowl of the Josh Allen era — and in their franchise’s history.
Hopkins could pair with Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis on the outside to give Allen the best wide receiver trio of his young career.
Buffalo would likely have to pull off some cap shenanigans to give Hopkins the contract he wants, but, as mentioned, he’s already expressed his desire to catch passes from Allen.
“He reminds me of a new-school Andrew Luck,” Hopkins said of Allen during the “I Am Athlete” podcast appearance.
