NFL Super Bowl future odds changed, and Burrow and Young are favored to win rookie of the year honors.
The NFL Draft is in the books. A lot of teams made great picks. Some teams made questionable picks.
The first three went as expected. That’s why bookies favor Joe Burrow to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. It’s also why most NFL sports bettors believe Chase Young wins the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year.
If you’re a football bettor, keep reading. We dig deep into NFL futures and props.
Don’t shut us out if you’re a bookie agent, though. It always helps to know what your players think.
Spread in 2021 Super Bowl odds contract
Defending champion Kansas City offers +600 to +650 odds. Before the draft, KC was at +400 to +450. Why did the odds change? The Chiefs had a decent draft. Other teams got better.
The Baltimore Ravens had the best draft. Lamar Jackson’s squad chose ten players.
All ten can make the team. Baltimore’s odds are in the +700 range.
San Francisco, New Orleans, and Tampa Bay are around +1200. New Orleans bolstered their offensive line with center-guard Cesar Ruiz.
In the first round, San Francisco drafted defensive-tackle Javon Kinlaw and wide receiver Brandon Ayuik. Tampa shored up their offensive line with Tristan Wirfs.
Green Bay’s Super Bowl odds dived. The Packers drafted Utah State quarterback Jordan Love.
The signal-caller has Patrick Mahomes’ type skills.
But the Packers were a player away from contending.
Love must sit on the bench. Future hall-of-fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers remains the starter.
Most sportsbooks had the Pack at +1800. Green Bay’s odds are around +2500.
Right now, the betting overlay is the Tennessee Titans. Last season’s AFC Championship runner up offers odds in the +4000 to +6000 range to win Super Bowl 55.
Burrow +250 and Young offers +400 to win ROY awards
Joe Burrow and Chase Young rocked it in college. Both were Heisman Trophy Finalists.
Burrow won the award.
In 15 games, the former LSU quarterback threw for 5,671 yards. He tossed 60 touchdown passes. While in Baton Rouge, Burrow played in a pro-style offense. Leading up to the draft, Cincinnati Bengals’ coach Zac Taylor salivated over Joe’s football IQ.
After Burrow, Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is the next choice to win offensive rookie of the year. Tua provides +800 odds.
Like Burrow, Chase Young is a low-odds choice to win the ROY on defense. Young had 16 ½ sacks in 12 games last season.
He had 46 total tackles. Of those 46 tackles, 21 went for a loss.
D.C. hired Ron Rivera as their head coach. Rivera coached the Chicago Bears defense before becoming Carolina’s head coach.
Ron knows defense. Like Taylor, Rivera couldn’t keep his giddiness at bay before the draft.
Other NFL props sportsbook owners can offer, and players can bet
NFL bookies can present other football prop wagers. The most popular is NFL MVP, Coach of the Year, and offensive and defensive players of the year.
No surprise that oddsmakers favor Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes to win MVP. The odds on the Super Bowl MVP are +400.
The NFL Coach of the Year odds favorite is New England’s Bill Belichick. Tom Brady bolted to Tampa Bay. Belichick must replace his hall-of-fame quarterback. At +1100, most believe Bill successfully does that.
Mahomes is a +550 favorite to win offensive player of the year honors. Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald is the betting chalk to win defensive player of the year. But Donald isn’t a heavy favorite at +750.
