When NFL fans woke up this morning, there were surely lots of notifications on their phones informing them of a wild night full of trades and free-agent signings.
Two of the biggest names in football, Odell Beckham Jr. and Le'Veon Bell, changed teams overnight. Bell signed with the New York Jets and OBJ was traded to Cleveland, essentially changing the landscape and 2019 NFL future of three teams in the blink of an eye.
With that came some massive movement in the Super Bowl odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Browns odds to win the Super Bowl went from +2800 to +1800, a massive improvement for a team that had trouble winning games before last season. A full season with Rookie-of-the-Year runner up Baker Mayfield and the addition of pass-rusher Olivier Vernon, along with Beckham, makes them a contender to win the AFC North and make a run in the playoffs.
The Giants, conversely, went down from +5000 to +6000 in what will likely be a rebuilding year for them. Their New York counterpart, the Jets, had the largest boost in odds, from +8000 to +6000, but they're a long shot to even win the AFC East with Tom Brady and the Patriots the favorites (+700) to win back-to-back Super Bowls on FanDuel Sportsbook.
