Patriots are betting front-runners to land Emmanuel Sanders in trade

According to at least one sportsbook, the buzz about Emmanuel Sanders potentially joining the New England Patriots is very real.

The Patriots have the best odds (+200) to acquire the Denver Broncos wide receiver before the NFL trade deadline, according to SportsLine Oddsmakers.

New England has plenty of competition for Sanders; the San Francisco 49ers are in a close second at +250 odds, while four other NFC teams and one other AFC club (the Baltimore Ravens at +700) also are in the running.

These odds come one day after a report that the 2-5 Broncos are "likely" to trade the veteran wide receiver before next Tuesday's deadline.
