Packers Trade Davante Adams to Las Vegas – 2022 Odds Impact

| March 18, 2022 9:31 am PDT

The NFL trade season is in full swing with a major blockbuster trade this week. The Green Bay Packers shipped out their star wide receiver to the Las Vegas Raiders in a monster trade.

Davante Adams is the figure in question, who was the best player in the Packers’ offense and across the league over the past couple years. Adams was due a massive extension and the Packers opted to ship him away instead.

The Raiders get one of the best offensive players in the league and all of a sudden have a dangerous offense with lots of weapons. Let’s take a look at the full trade details and what the total moving pieces were.

Full Davante Adams Trade Details and Contract

Adams’ trade was based around his contract and was the main reason why he was dealt. With that being said, let’s take a look at the logistics of this trade and what each side got.

The first (No. 22 overall) and second round (No. 53 overall) draft picks are both for this upcoming draft.

That makes sense when you take into consideration Adams’ was not going to be playing for the Packers without a worthy extension anyways.

Adams was franchise tagged by Green Bay, but said he would not play under it without an extension. Green Bay decided that it was better to get some high draft capital instead of having Adams not play at all for them.

Now on the Raiders, Adams gets to play with his college quarterback in Derek Carr and gets his mega deal. The star wide receivers’ contract is worth $141.25 million over the next 5 years ($28.25 AAV).

Green Bay Packers’ 2022 Odds Shaken Up

So what does this mean for the Packers in 2022? Their odds definitely have moved, but the direction they moved in might surprise you.

With the Adams’ trade going through, the Packers’ Super Bowl 57 went from (+1800) to (+1000). The (+1800) odds were out right after Super Bowl 56 back in February, but oddly dropped after trading their best player (non-QB).

Green Bay is favored to win the NFC North division with (-250) odds as well.

They recently re-signed franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a huge deal (3 years, $150,815,000) and will need to find an Adams replacement quickly.

With 4 picks in the first two rounds of this upcoming draft, they’ll be looking to do damage.

Whether that means drafting WRs or trading them for proven ones remains to be seen. There are still some veterans on the market that they could target too.

For now, I would wait on the Packers’ odds to increase a little bit on the best NFL betting sites so you can get a little more bang for your buck.

2022 Las Vegas Raiders’ Odds Movement

With the Raiders looking to get back into the playoffs and potentially win a Super Bowl this year, they took a chance on Adams. His connection with Carr at Fresno State should mean that he gets acclimated in the Las Vegas’ offense rather quickly.

The Raiders also saw their odds to win Super Bowl 57 increase. They were sitting north of (+5500) before the Adams trade, but now are in (+3500) on BetOnline.

That makes a lot more sense following the Adams trade. Las Vegas gets one of the best WRs in the league who already has experience playing with Derek Carr.

The Raiders are coming together for 2022, even outside of the Adams trade. They made some other moves this offseason that should make them a solid contender for this season;

  • Signed DE Chandler Jones
  • Extended DE Maxx Crosby
  • Traded for CB Rock Ya-Sin

Their defense was underrated last season and now they add one of the best pass rushers over the last decade or so in Chandler Jones.

The Raiders will look to win a Super Bowl this year with their offseason moves and their price has value.
