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.
