Despite reports that Tom Brady plans to test free agency, his legacy in New England remains a strong factor in where he is expected to end up in 2020. According to, the Patriots are still the favorite for where Brady will play next season.

The Patriots are listed as favorites to retain Brady, boasting a 66.7% chance of doing so. However, should he decide to leave the team in free agency, the Raiders are viewed as the favorites with 3/1 odds, followed by the Chargers at 4/1 and the Buccaneers at 7/1.

The Panthers, Colts and Cowboys round out the list, all sharing 9/1 odds of landing the veteran gunslinger if he doesn't return to the Pats.

Should the 42-year-old decide to leave New England in the offseason, it seems he'd have quite a few teams keen on bringing him aboard. As of now, however, it seems most likely that he'll stick around in Foxborough -- though a new deal won't be cheap.

Patriots fans have been in an uncomfortable position, unsure of what the future holds under center for the first time in two decades. With Brady entering free agency for the first time in his career, fans in Boston are holding their breath in anticipation.

These betting odds listing the Patriots as favorites for his services could relieve some of that stress.
