Week 10 of the NFL season is already upon us! Now that the season is midway over, it’s a good time to make some good futures bets.
That is the third in a sequence of futures bets articles. Every week, I’ll study the present odds and check out to discover the finest values in your cash. Once more, what we’re on the lookout for is worth, and meaning we possible received’t be taking any present favorites.
This week, let’s check out Offensive Rookie of the 12 months.
Till this level, I didn’t see so much of worth on this class with Ja’Marr Chase being so closely favored, however the strains have moved and there may now be some worth right here.
The highest three on this race are:
Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase -145
Patriots QB Mac Jones +350
Steelers RB Najee Harris +900
All of a sudden, I see worth all over the place! When you like Chase, the incontrovertible fact that he hasn’t topped greater than 50 yards in every of his final two video games may really work in your favor.
I’m lastly keen to take this guess at -145.
Mac Jones is nice worth at +350. A quarterback has taken the award the final two years, and although his numbers is probably not as flashy as final 12 months’s winner, Justin Herbert, he’s quietly placing collectively a pleasant rookie season. Jones seems to be poised in Josh McDaniels’ offense, passing for 237.2 yards per recreation. Jones is on a 3 recreation win streak with a lot of delicate matchups forward: Atlanta, Miami and Jacksonville.
Maybe my favourite guess of the three is Najee Harris at +900. Najee, fairly merely, is a stud. Huge Ben is declining, and the youthful again is offering the power offensively.
Not solely is Harris a monster on the floor, he has turn out to be a giant half of the passing offense with JuJu Smith-Schuster sidelined. With Chase Claypool set to miss time with a foot harm, Harris’ arrow is pointing up. I count on Harris to commonly have 100-plus all-purpose-yard video games. He’s a real bell-cow again in Mike Tomlin’s system, and with the Lions, Chargers and Chiefs looming, Harris may simply win this award.
Let’s additionally check out Defensive Rookie of the 12 months.
Micah Parsons is the favourite at -125, and I am keen to make that guess. He is been a unicorn for the Dallas Protection. There’s nobody like him. Parsons is the first participant in NFL historical past to tally 50 tackles, 10 tackles for loss and 5 sacks in his first eight video games.
I additionally like Giants linebacker Azeez Ojulari at +1100. The second-round decide has been wonderful for the Giants, main all rookies with 5.5 sacks.
Checking in on Comeback Participant of the 12 months.
For a price decide, I advisable in the first week of this sequence taking Joe Burrow at +650 on SI Sportsbook quite than favourite Dak Prescott (-350).
One week later, and after Prescott missed a recreation, the odds at SI Sportsbook moved Burrow to +500 and Prescott to -333. However the Bengals’ blowout loss to the Browns on Sunday bumped Burrow to +650, whereas Prescott is now at -375.
I nonetheless like Burrow at this worth, so for those who’re feeling the sophomore QB, grab that future.
Lastly, let’s test in on Offensive Participant of the 12 months.
With Derrick Henry’s season possible over, right here’s what appeared on this article final week:
“(Cooper) Kupp has now vaulted up the leaderboard, and as the present favourite, you might be solely getting +120. It may very well be your final probability for plus cash,, nevertheless it’s not sufficient return for me. Kyler Murray stays in second place at +1200, and subsequent in line are Josh Allen and Davante Adams at +1400. I nonetheless like Murray right here, however now my eyes are turning towards the unbelievable worth for Matt Stafford at +3000. When you like Kupp, how do you not additionally like (Matthew) Stafford?”
When you nonetheless like Stafford, he’s now +5000, and Adams is +2000.
However a brand new man has caught my eye: Jonathan Taylor at +1400.
Taylor has been in beast mode as of late, and with Henry sidelined, he’ll quickly lead the league in dashing yards. He has 821 dashing yards on the season, and he’s but to high 20 carries. He’s averaging an unbelievable 5.9 yards per try. He’s additionally getting extra concerned in the passing recreation. As the Colts are getting more healthy, Taylor will see increasingly success. The Colts face the Jaguars twice in the second half of the season, together with this week, in addition to the Raiders and Texans, and that’s 4 video games the place I count on Taylor to run wild. Smash this guess now earlier than it loses worth.
