Deshaun Watson Suspension Odds Breakdown

Oddsmakers don’t think it’s even a question that Watson will be suspended. They’re giving -600 odds, or an implied 85.7% chance that he’s suspended this season. That’s compared to the +375 odds, or an implied 21.1% chance he gets off without a suspension.

The question on everyone’s mind is how long that suspension will be. Oddsmakers have set DeShaun Watson's suspension odds at the over/under at 7.5 games and they are leaning towards over. Oddsmakers give -150 odds, or an implied 60% chance that the suspension will be at least eight games long. However, they’re also given +110 odds, or an implied 47.6% chance that he gets seven games or less. So, while the over I certainly favored it’s not a certainty.

The NFL doesn’t have the best record when it comes to punishing sexual offenders. However, they also haven’t seen a case this big before. It also comes at a time when sports leagues across the US are taking much harder stances on these issues. For example, Trevor Bauer got suspended for two full years. It’s unlikely the NFL is going to want to look weak in comparison, so the over being favored makes sense. But the league’s history can’t be overlooked.
