Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is expected to be a top five selection and one of the top stars to emerge from the 2014 NFL Draft class, so it was only natural that he would be drawing attraction from some of the top companies for endorsement deals.
With the likes of Nike, adidas and Under Armour fighting to land Manziel, it is Under Armour that is expected to get their wish.
The folks in Las Vegas have released their odds for Manziel’s first big endorsement deal, and Under Armour tops the list with 2-to-3 odds.
Here are the full odds, via Bovada.lv:
- Under Armour — 2/3
- Nike — 3/2
- Adidas — 5/1
Adidas would have been an interesting choice since he likely built a relationship with representatives during his time at Texas A&M where the company was a the university’s uniform supplier and Nike has his good friend LeBron, but Manziel appears to be going his own way.
