Well, first of all it stands to be tested whether they accept it or not. Certainly, there's a contingent aligned with the oaf who have been pushing for a no deal Brexit from the outset.

Secondly, there are a large contingent that don't care whether there's a deal or not; they just want Brexit and know they can block anything they don't want to happen.

Thirdly, if he said he aims for a no deal Brexit then he'd lose more support than he stands to gain.

Finally, vested interests and political expediency. It might not be as simple as 'money' although it's likely that some will benefit from a no deal Brexit. There could be any number of MP's who don't give a toss either way, but can try and get concessions they do want for their support.
