Have you ever been hanging out with your buddies, talking about football and somebody out of the blue says something along the lines of “I bet ‘X’ player will score three touchdowns next game?” Or “Y” QB will pass for over any said number of yards be it in a season or a game?

Rodgers and The Jets Will Be Money
One of the biggest talking points this offseason has been Rodgers being acquired by the New York Jets. With the former league MVP in place to take the 2023 season and make the most out of it, enticing prop bet options have started to make splashes at BetUS.
For example, let’s say that you, just like me, are a faithful Jets fan. You’re probably thinking Rodgers is going to run the show in NY and lead the Jets to the promised land while putting up MVP numbers once again. I don’t blame you, I low-key feel the same from time to time.
A promising first prop bet option that pops up has Rodgers passing for 4,000+ yards, all while the Jets make it to the playoffs. For Rodgers, passing for 4,000+ doesn’t seem like a stretch, especially considering the receiver corps he’ll have.
And with the Jets looking like one of the new favorite teams in the AFC to make it to the playoffs, with the money line at +165, it seems like a no-brainer to pick up the bet and roll with it.
Also, another promising bet amongst other Rodgers/NY options has the QB passing for 31+ TDs and the Jets winning the AFC East. At +275, tell me that’s not enticing. Staying with New York winning the AFC East, BetUS has the Jets going undefeated in its divisional bouts at +2200.
Furthermore, if you think the Jets will end up as the No.1 seed in the AFC, the line stands at +750, while the near-impossible task of New York going undefeated in the 2023 season is at a cool +10000.
But why stop there? Let’s add a little spice and drama into the mix just for fun. Jordan Love is slated to be Green Bay’s new QB, taking the Packers to make it to the playoffs while the Jets missing out stands at +400.
If you’re a fan of longshots, here’s your opportunity.

Which Rookie QB Will Make the Biggest Betting Splash?
Three QBs were picked within three of the first four picks of this year’s NFL draft. Alabama’s Bryce Young went to the Carolina Panthers, Ohio State’s Bryce Young is now a Texan and former Florida star Anthony Richardson will be calling Indianapolis his home for the next few years.
So, how is each going to fare in their first season? If you’re looking to put some money to work on said stars, taking Richardson for most passing yards and touchdown passes might be where the biggest money bag is. At +550 in both categories, Richardson is the biggest paying wager, with Young standing in both bets at -140 and Stroud at +135 respectively.
Also, taking Richardson as the rookie QB who will start the most games is +165, while Young is +110 and Stroud at +125
Now, since not all can be positive, Richardson also leads the pack at +225 at the passer who will have the most interceptions. Young at +150 and Stroud at +110. Lastly, Richardson also leads the group in QB with the biggest odds to be benched first at -150, while Young stands at +200 and Stroud at +450.
Offensive Rookies Could Take You to The Bank
Besides passers, this year’s draft had an ample class full of strong wide receiver and running back prospects all getting picked up in the earlier rounds of the event. In the receiving yard category, the options for betting on what rookie will have the most receiving yards read like a perfect shopping list for people looking to make some cash.
Take Baltimore’s new receiver, Zay Flowers. With Lamar Jackson and Odell Beckham Jr ready to make the Ravens’ pass offense explosive, Flowers’ chance to have the most receiving yards for a rookie stands at +600. Jackson already said he wants to pass for 6,000 yards, so imagine if Flowers gets a large chunk of that what is to stop him from being the top rookie?
If you want to go for a good but safer option, you can always take Minnesota’s Jordan
Addison, who will be playing alongside one Mr. Justin Jefferson at +250, or Jaxon Smith-Njigba who is at +250 as well, will be catching passes from Geno Smith while sharing routes with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.
Lastly, if you’re more into tight ends than receivers, taking Bills rookie TE Dalton Kincaid at +1400 might be of interest. With Josh Allen slinging the ball, and the Bills looking to relieve Stefon Diggs and Gabe Davis from all of the heavy lifting in Buffalo’s receiving game, Kincaid could end up surprising everybody.
