The most exciting props to make this NFL season involve quarterbacks. Look for Peyton Manning to win both the MVP and yardage crown.
Prop betting on fan favorites like Peyton Manning and Marshawn Lynch is more popular than ever with online sportsbooks in the US, Canada and UK. We’ve put together a useful primer on the odds for the most popular prop bets this season.
Most Valuable Player
The NFL is a quarterback’s league these days and the MVP race looks to be dominated by throwers. According to Bodog the favorite this season is incumbent Payton Manning at 4.5/1, followed by Aaron Rodgers at 7/1 and Drew Brees at 9/1.
Leader in passing yards
While Peyton Manning is the league’s best quarterback and favorite to win the league MVP, he may not be the statistical leader. Bodog predicts the yardage crown to be a two-man race between Manning and Brees; both given 3.75/1 odds. Mobile betting makes this bet easier because you keep up with statistics in real time and on the go.
First coach to be fired
This is a bit of a strange category, but it’s hard not to get some pleasure out of watching coaches squirm. This year it looks like Jason Garrett of the perennially disappointing Dallas Cowboys could be the first to go, with Bodog listing 3/1 odds. Dennis Allen of the hapless Oakland Raiders is second at 5/1.
