2019 NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year – Betting Odds [Updated]
With four weeks of the regular season finished, the odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year have been moving a bit.
Two rookie quarterbacks have taken over starting jobs from veterans in both Cleveland and Arizona, and other skill position players have emerged. Let’s look at the updated odds at SportsBetting.ag.
2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year Betting Odds
|Irv Smith Jr||+5000|
|Jj Arcega Whiteside||+3300|
Kyler Murray +150 – The Favorite
A year after winning the Heisman Trophy, Kyler Murray will seek the OROY award. Murray has on his side a big arm and underrated accuracy.
He can also get a lot of yards scrambling out of the pocket. Kyler should be a Fantasy Football machine this year. If you need a quarterback, you are welcome.
Daniel Jones +2000 – The Value Pick
I think we will see Daniel Jones taking over the starting QB for the Giants around October. New York will be so bad at the start of the season, that any wins that Jones get will be an overreaction.
At 20/1 there is a lot of value at the momentum Jones can earn in the second half of the season. We do need patience on this one.
Mr. Mayfield +100
Let’s be real – Baker Mayfield should have been starting since day one in Cleveland. It took a concussion to Tyrod Taylor (along with his horrific play) for him to get into the game.
Mayfield is a leader, and the Browns are a far better team than most realize. They continue to be held back by poor coaching. Still, I am not sure he’s a great deal at even money.
We’re just four weeks into the season. Lots of things can happen. The Browns could still end up being one of the league’s worst teams. Mayfield may get hurt.
He may get benched because Cleveland’s coaching staff is inept. He also may not play well enough to win ROY. He was much better valued at +500 a few weeks ago or before the season started.
Sam Darnold +400
I mentioned Sam Darnold as my favorite pick for Offensive Rookie of the Year early in the year and did take him at +600, that price looks far worse now but did look a lot better when he was +200 after the Jets 1-1 start. Still, New York is 1-3 in a tough division.
Darnold will need a fantastic statistical season to be considered for Offensive Rookie. However, the Jets most likely won’t dominate the conference.
Saquon Barkley +500
I initially thought Barkley wasn’t worth a bet, as his odds were much lower, around +300 to start the season. However, after four weeks – Barkley’s usage is ridiculous.
The Giants won’t make the playoffs, and they are indeed a bad team, but if he continues to be used in this matter and Mayfield doesn’t impress statistically – there is upside here.
Barkley has scored a touchdown in all but one week of the season, and he’s averaged over 100 yards a game in four games. He’s been particularly active in the receiving game where he’s already notched 27 receptions on the season.
I love the value you can get with Barkley in this offense that wants to take the ball out of Eli Manning’s hands and rely on short throws.
He could quickly end up having one of the best or the best statistical seasons for a rookie running back in history. Regardless of New York’s place in the standings, that has value.
