The NFL Rookie of the Year Award is actually split up into two main categories, but one tends to get most of the attention. Betting on the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award generates plenty of betting action, especially once the NFL Draft is over each year.
That is also when the odds will first come out as oddsmakers know that there will be some action right away. These odds are going to be changing throughout the NFL season, and some players will fall off the board altogether.
Unlike in other sports, it’s pretty easy to determine if a player qualifies as a rookie or not in the NFL. These are usually first year players right from college, or some can be from an international country.
The NFL Rookie of the Year candidates are pretty easy to identify early on in this process, but there can be some surprises that pop up from time to time.

How to Bet on the NFL Rookie of the Year
Betting on the NFL Rookie of the Year Award is as simple as making one simple click of the button. Of course there is some work to be done before that point, but this is a bet that isn’t very difficult to submit.
The first step is to locate a sportsbook that offers betting on the NFL Rookie of the Year Award. From there, you will simply have to take a look at the list of odds and see all of the players that are candidates for the award.
Next to each candidate’s name there will be some odds listed. Those will either have a (-) or a (+) sign in front of the three digit number. If there is a candidate that has a (-) sign then that player is a heavy favorite to be named Rookie of the Year.
For all candidates that have a (+) sign, the number next to it will tell you how much can be won on a $100 wager. There is no rule as to how much has to be wagered, but that’s the easiest way to determine your potential payout.
