Super Bowl 53 Odds: Updated for Week 15

NFL Offensive Player of Year Odds

Mahomes for Offensive POY?

Quarterbacks have won four of the last five NFL Offensive Player of the Year awards, but wideout Michael Thomas took home the award. This year, only three of the top eight odds favorites are QBs, an interesting turn for the league and for NFL bettors.

To nobody’s surprise, the top betting choice is Patrick Mahomes, coming in at +700 at SugarHouse Sportsbook. The 2018 MVP and 2019 Super Bowl MVP should have everything going for him this season. His entire offense returns except at running back, where first-round pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire steps in to give this offense even more juice. I expect another gigantic season from Patrick Mahomes.

Can Henry maintain playoff form?

The Tennessee Titans were easily the story of the 2019 season. The Titans were led by bruising RB Derrick Henry, who had his breakout season in 2019. He elevated his game in the  playoffs, racking up 446 yards in the three Titan playoff games. He averaged a miraculous 5.4 yards per carry during that span.

The Titans are running it back on offense so Henry should be able to pick up right where he left off as the lynchpin of the Titans offense. He starts the year at +1000 odds to win, according to SugarHouse.

Lamar Jackson motivated after playoff failure?

The 2019 NFL MVP also comes in at +1000 odds. The most dynamic player in the NFL will have plenty of opportunity to win the award in 2020. His entire offense returns minus Marshall Yanda at right guard. You have seen him play – 10-1 odds is probably a great value bet here at SugarHouse. Jackson has the ability  to make defenders look silly, and his overall game pops off the screen. If he opens with a crazy game against Cleveland, these odds will drop, so if you like Jackson for Offensive  POY, this is probably the best deal to bet him.

Christian McCaffery – great on a lousy team?

The Carolina Panthers project as one of the worst teams in 2020, yet they still have one of the most dynamic players. Christian McCaffery enters the season at +1000 odds, after a terrific 2019 campaign. McCaffery had 2,392 total yards last season, and was pretty much the entire Panthers offense. This season will be similar, as new QB Teddy Bridgewater loves checking the ball down. Look for McCaffery to continue his 2019 success.

Michael Thomas to repeat?

The reigning champ will enter the 2020 season at +1000 odds, according to SugarHouse. Michael Thomas had an incredible 2019 season, putting up 1,725 yards on 149 receptions. Plain  and simple, these are incredible numbers. It will be tough for Thomas to repeat these numbers. With Emmanuel Sanders joining the fold and a rejuvenated Alvin Kamara back, the Saints offense will most likely spread the ball around more. I would not touch him at +1000 odds.

Tom Brady dark horse bet?

Look no further than 43-year-old Tom Brady at +2800. Tom should be able to put up dazzling numbers this season with the arsenal of weapons organized to assist. The Bucs offense should be a Top 5 unit. This would be a great payout but a great upset for a 43-year-old QB to win the award.
