NFL betting results are often settled by the play of the man over center whether it be good or bad and the quarterback position is always a good place to look first when NFL gambling.
The top ranked quarterback in all of NFL betting last year was Philip Rivers of the San Diego Chargers, who ended up with a NFL gambling quarterback rating of 105.5 to finish as the only signal caller to end the regular season with a rating better than 100.00. Rivers threw for a phenomenal 4009 yards and 34 touchdowns.
More important, Rivers was the main man responsible for San Diego’s remarkable finish to the NFL betting season in which they went 3-1 against the spread while winning all 4 games straight up to end up in the playoffs after standing at 4-8 with a month to go.
Chad Pennington was a key reason last year for the resurgence of the Miami Dolphins who went from worst to first in the AFC east.
Pennington was given up for dead in NFL betting circles after a star crossed and injury plagued career with the New York Jets but he ranked 2nd best in all of the league with a 97.4 quarterback rating and a 19/7 touchdown/interception ratio. Pennington led the Dolphins to 9 wins in their final 10 regular season NFL betting appearances.
The key question is whether or not he can maintain his performance and his questionable health for 2009. Peyton Manning is a mainstay amongst the AFC quarterback stable. Manning had another stellar NFL betting season in 2008 and finished 5th overall in the league with a 95.0 quarterback rating and a 27/12 quarterback rating.
Indianapolis lost just 2 out of their final 8 regular season games against the NFL betting odds thanks to the leadership and performance of Manning. Matt Schaub of the Houston Texans may not be one of the better known quarterbacks in NFL betting but he is one of the best.
Schaub finished the 2008 season with a 92.7 quarterback rating as Houston covered 6 out of their final 7 games to finish at .500 and a step closer to the post season!
