Tom Brady and Cam Newton are both MVP-winning quarterbacks going to new teams. Brady is linking up with Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers while Newton is stepping into the void left by Brady in New England. While Brady is the Week 1 starter in Tampa, it sounds like Bill Belicheck is making Newton fight for the starting gig with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer.

In addition to the run-of-the-mill player props we see every year, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering special Brady vs. Newton player props to keep things interesting this season. Will Tom Brady resurrect his career in Tampa and have another strong season? Is Cam Newton ready to prove his doubters wrong by succeeding in New England?

There’s a lot to unpack here. For one, Newton might not even be the Week 1 starter for the Patriots. He’s on a one-year, incentive-laden deal so if he’s not performing in camp, he won’t start. That’s one of the reasons that Brady is opening as such a heavy favorite in both of these props.

Another reason for the odds is the fact that Brady has one of the best groups of skill-position players in the NFL. He’ll have no shortage of downfield options with Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard, Cameron Brate, and Ronald Jones II.

Newton, on the other hand, won’t have the luxury of big-time pass-catchers in New England. Julian Edelman is a former Super Bowl MVP who brings valuable experience to the position, but he’s getting up there in age. After him, it’s N’Keal Harry, Mohamed Sanu Sr., and Devin Asiasi.

The running back corps is solid and deep with Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead, and James White, but that just means that the Patriots might adjust the offense to feature a more run-heavy style. If Newton is fully healthy, expect the Pats to utilize his rushing ability as well.
