BetUS sportsbook has unveiled its odds to win the 2020 NFL offensive rookie of the year, and now is a perfect time to get in on the action. NFL betting is extremely popular year-round, and making a futures bet is the best option at this point.
Both the AFC and NFC are loaded with terrific young rookies this season, and that could make this race interesting. There is one heavy favorite in terms of betting odds, but it’s always hard to predict how a dominant college player will fare in the NFL.
Latest Odds to win 2020 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year
The Heavy Favorite
- Joe Burrow +225
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is surprisingly the heavy favorite to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award, and for good reason. Burrow won the Heisman Trophy a season ago and led the LSU Tigers to a perfect season.
The Bengals were the worst team in the NFL a season ago, and they plan on giving Burrow the starting job from week 1. That will subsequently give the dual-threat quarterback a huge chance to win this coveted award.
- Clyde Edwards-Helaire +400
- Jonathan Taylor +900
- Tua Tagovailoa +1200
- D’Andre Swift +1200
Three running backs and a quarterback make up the list of contenders for the offensive Rookie of the Year award. Edwards-Helaire is the second favorite according to BetUS, and he is another product from LSU. The running back was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs. Therefore, he should get the ball a ton.
Taylor and Swift were terrific college running backs. Ultimately they are expected to have long careers in the NFL as well. It will be interesting to see if they can get on the field enough to make a run at this award.
Tagovailoa was drafted by the Miami Dolphins after a great career at Alabama, but it’s unclear if he will get the start right away. If he does, look for him to push Burrow as the favorite for the ROY.
Ready to Emerge
- Ke’Shawn Vaughn +1400
- Cam Akers +1400
- J.K. Dobbins +1400
- Ceedee Lamb +1600
- Jerry Jeudy +1800
- Justin Jefferson +1800
- Henry Ruggs III +1800
This category is filled with talented running backs and wide receivers, but it’s hard for these types of players to win the NFL ROY award. None of these players will likely be the featured player at their position, and the number of touches will determine what chances they have at winning it.
Fans should undoubtedly keep their eye on Ceedee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy, as they were regarded as the top two wide receivers in this class. Lamb is now a member of the Dallas Cowboys, and Jeudy will be playing for the Denver Broncos.
Longshots Odds to Consider
- Justin Herbert +2500
- Everyone Else +2800 or Higher
Someone not on this list could come away with this award, but that’s not likely to be the case. Even though Justin Herbert is listed as a longshot, he could play his way into the race as well.
Lastly, Herbert was drafted by the Los Angeles Chargers. Nevertheless, if he is given the starting quarterback job from week 1, he could put up some huge numbers.
