The Denver Broncos are still the "favorite" to trade for Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, according to the latest betting odds.

DraftKings Sportsbook put out its updated odds this morning. The Packers, at -167, remain Rodgers' most likely team for Week 1 of the 2021 season.

However, Denver is second on the list at +140, and the next team after them, the Las Vegas Raiders, are at +1000.

Clearly, as of now, the oddsmakers think if Rodgers goes anywhere, it will be to the Mile High city.

The Aaron Rodgers trade rumors started up one month ago as the NFL Draft was set to kick off. ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported that Rodgers was unhappy with the Packers' organization and did not want to return to Green Bay.

Since then, there's been no resolution to the ongoing rift. Rodgers remains a member of the Packers, but skipped the first day of offseason workouts on Monday and doesn't seem like he'll be joining the team any time soon.

On Monday night, Rodgers appeared with Kenny Mayne on his final episode of SportsCenter. During the segment, he explained what his issues are with the Packers, seemingly throwing heat on the team's front office.

“With my situation, look it’s never been about the draft pick, picking Jordan [Love],” Rodgers told Mayne, via ESPN. “I love Jordan; he’s a great kid. [We’ve had] a lot of fun to work together. Love the coaching staff, love my teammates, love the fan base in Green Bay. An incredible 16 years. It’s just kind of about a philosophy and maybe forgetting that it is about the people that make the thing go. It’s about character, it’s about culture, it’s about doing things the right way.”

Rodgers is coming off his third MVP campaign with the Packers. He's helped lead the team to a 26-6 record and back-to-back NFC Championship Game appearances the last two seasons.
