AP NFL Coach of the Year Odds 2020-21

Odds are set for the Associated Press NFL Coach of the Year for the 2020-21 season. Do the Player of the Year odds reveal a decent dark horse? Odds are from Bovada  

The favorite, Belichick is of course intriguing. If the Patriots make the playoffs in the post-Brady era, he would be tough to beat. There are plenty of rumors of Deshaun Watson landing in New England, which would lessen the shock of the Pats making the postseason. But if Belichick accomplished this with unproven Jarrett Stidham, he’d be a virtual lock for Coach of the Year. 

I’ve preached for years how use oddsmakers’ knowledge against them. Arizona QB Kyler Murray is +1000 to win the MVP, putting him as the No. 4 favorite. Should Murray make a serious run at MVP, his coach Kliff Kingsbury would get serious consideration for COY and at 18-1 is very tempting. At the same odds, Kevin Stefanski is in very good position. He is taking over last year’s bust Cleveland, a team that has nowhere to go but up. 

If Baker Mayfield rises to the level of elite QB—and he showed great flashes two years ago—newcomer Stefanski becomes the favorite. 

All odds based on $100 per bet. Hence +1000 would be the same as 10-1.

Sports Handicapping Strategy: Never Bet With Your Broken Heart

In my handicapping infancy in the late 80s, the Dutchman (recall that bloke scorephone junkies?) was doling out copies of some advice column along the lines of Golden Rules of Handicapping. I can’t even recollect most of the provisions, but do recall they ranged from the obvious like, “Bet with your head, not your heart,” to the total bullshit, “Only wager on an underdog to cover if you think they will win outright.”

All the other theorems were fairly unmemorable. I can’t “credit” the author, because I’m not sure who it was. Yes, stuff did go viral back then. However, previous to high tech overtaking the world, going viral meant a 15thgeneration photocopied note changing hands. 

Lost in the prudent, yet blatantly evident “not betting with your heart” is a more significant reality: don’t gamble with your broken heart. I’m distressed at how often I hear something along the lines of, “I refuse to bet on any game involving the Detroit Lions. Each time I bet on them whether for or against, I get it wrong.” 

Even though I haven’t done an academic inquisition, the ensuing soliloquy generally reveals a very small sample size. Further conversations uncovers a customary paradigm is that the weeper bets on foregoing team to repeat the performance of the last time they wagered for or against them. That is, if the team they bet on got annihilated, they will bet against that team, anticipating to again put up a fiasco effort. 

“They lost outright as a 10-point favorite. Next time, I bet against them as an underdog and they won by 20 points,” is a familiar sounding shrieking of annoyance. The fact that sharps bet on capricious teams to be unpredictable notwithstanding, it’s a knee-jerk reflex to eliminate possibilities of betting for or against a certain squad based on short-term heartache. 

It’s as preposterous as swearing off unders because a few tormenting setbacks. Most of us have been there, but only squares abandon the ship. 

Perchance there is a discernable cause and effect why someone has a bad read on a team, objectively assess and determine why. Make alterations accordingly. But if you are invoking your next bet based on how a certain team executed the last time you place a bet on them—the only bad read you have is on how prosperous handicapping functions.

Post Draft NFL Rookie Of Year Odds Among Many Prop Bets

The draft is in the books so now it’s time to project what these highly-touted rookies will accomplish during their inaugural NFL seasons.  

SportsBetting has put up a ton of odds surrounding the 2020 rookie class, and this page will have current numbers throughout the offseason: 

It’s no surprise that Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa lead the Offensive ROY list, which you can find below (as well as DROY candidates). Justin Herbert has 12/1 odds, but he and Tagovailoa are decent underdogs just to be their team’s starters in Week 1. 

And what might be considered an ominous sign for the ever-questionable health of Carson Wentz, Jalen Hurts has 50-50 odds to start one game for the Eagles this season.

Additionally, there are over/under season statistical prop bets for these players:

Chase Young o/u 8.5 sacks

Clyde Edwards-Helaire o/u 950 rushing yards

D’Andre Swift o/u 625 rushing yards

Jeff Okudah o/u 3 interceptions

Jonathan Taylor o/u 550 rushing yards

Justin Jefferson o/u 750 receiving yards

CeeDee Lamb o/u 850 receiving yards

Henry Ruggs III o/u 800 receiving yards

Jalen Reagor o/u 700 receiving yards

Jerry Jeudy o/u 900 receiving yards

Joe Burrow o/u 16.5 interceptions, 22.5 passing TDs, 3800 passing yards

Justin Herbert o/u 17.5 interceptions, 21 passing TDs, 3400 passing yards

Tua Tagovailoa o/u 15.5 interceptions, 19 passing TDs, 3200 passing yards

Jalen Hurts starts game at QB: Yes -120, No -120

Finally, there are already odds for next year’s No. 1 pick:

Last Minute NFL Draft Betting Props and More

Football fans are having a good week. 

The NFL Draft is tonight, Rob Gronkowski un-retired and Tom Brady is going to tee it up with Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. 

Details of the Champions for Charity golf match that will be televised live on TNT next month have yet to be released, but that hasn’t stopped oddsmakers at SportsBetting from creating some very fun and unique prop bets for the event.

Do you think Tiger and Peyton will say “deflate” to get under Brady’s skin with a little trash talk? The odds say there’s a chance. Or how about an “audible” or “Omaha” on the course? Will there be a hole-in-one?

Woods and Manning are decent favorites in the match odds. Manning is favored to record the most birdies, and find the fairway on the first hole.

Bucs’ odds drop after Gronk trade

The Buccaneers are beginning to feel like the Browns of last offseason. Every football fan was buying into the hype, and Cleveland became one of the most bet on teams to win the Super Bowl. 

The Bucs are now one of the top three favorites on the Super Bowl LV odds board. Here are the five teams with the best odds:

Chiefs 13/2

Ravens 7/1

49ers 12/1

Buccaneers 12/1

Saints 14/1

However, a representative from the sportsbook suggests that the Gronkowski trade didn’t really impact the odds for anything other than public perception. 

“Bettors react to big news and Gronk coming out of retirement to reunite with his quarterback is big news,” Robert Cooper, odds manager at SportsBetting.ag, said. “We have to move the odds because we anticipate additional action from bettors, but in terms of the algorithms and power rankings we use to formulate the numbers Gronk doesn’t move the needle.”
