According to reports, NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson is part of a group that is trying to purchase an NFL franchise.
The sports business publication Sportico is reporting that Earvin “Magic” Johnson has joined a group being led by Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Josh Harris that is planning to make a bid on the Denver Broncos.
It is unclear how much capital Johnson is contributing to the bid group, according to Sportico, but with an estimated value of $3.8 billion, the Broncos sale is expected to set a record for the highest price ever paid for a sports franchise.
Detroit native and media mogul Byron Allen is also reportedly trying to purchase the Broncos with the help of an investor group from Wall Street, Hollywood, sports and business.
Nation, would you like to see Magic Johnson as part owner of the Denver Broncos?
An awful lot has changed since the last time we checked in on each team’s odds of winning the next Super Bowl back in February. There have been retirements (and un-retirements), free agency, blockbuster trades, and of course the NFL Draft.
With all this water under the bridge, it seemed an appropriate time to check on the latest odds on offer at the FanDuel SportsBook, one of a host of markets available to those who enjoy a little something extra on the action.
|Team||Super Bowl Odds (as Of 3/5/2022)|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||+750|
|Kansas City Chiefs||+950|
|Los Angeles Rams||+1100|
|Green Bay Packers||+1100|
|San Francisco 49ers||+1600|
|Los Angeles Chargers||+1600|
|New England Patriots||+4000|
|Las Vegas Raiders||+4000|
|New Orleans Saints||+4400|
|New York Giants||+8000|
|New York Jets||+15000|
Back in February, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were available at +2200. Their massive drop in price can mostly be explained by the decision made by Tom Brady to end his retirement after just over six weeks, returning the team to the top of the list of contenders in a very weak-looking NFC.
