NFL Bets On Passing Yard Leaders Are Interesting

Many unique season-long bets can be placed on individual NFL players. One of the top options involves figuring out who will have the most passing yards in the 2015 regular season.

Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck and Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers are the two favorites in that they have +400 odds each to lead the NFL in passing yards. Much of this is thanks to not only their skills on the field but also from their variety of different receiving targets.

Interestingly enough, Denver’s Peyton Manning only has +700 NFL betting odds to win the record. This may be due to his increasing age and how he may not be as proficient as he used to be.

New Orleans’ Drew Brees, a player once known as a shoo-in for this bet, only has a +750 line. The departure of Jimmy Graham in a trade to Seattle may be a big part of what is keeping him from being any higher.

Even some normally talented quarterbacks that are offensively proficient are at lower ratings because they don’t pass too often. Carolina’s Cam Newton has been known more for his running skills than passing, thus placing him at +10000 odds to lead the NFL in passing yards. Meanwhile, while Seattle’s Russell Wilson has been heralded for being a strong field commander, he does not generate as many passing yards as others, thus placing him at +10000 odds at Sports Gambling as well.

Those who are interested in Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston or Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota should not expect any bets involving those players to win. Those two quarterbacks also have +10000 odds to lead the league in passing.

It should also be noted that New England’s Tom Brady has a +2000 line to lead the league this year. The status of his suspension is up in the air, thus making it to where his status on this bet is not all that strong. Of course, he could get to +1000 or less if his suspension for the first four games of the season is actually overturned.
