- Eric Bieniemy is favored at +300 to be the New York Jets’ next head coach.
- Doug Pederson has +120 odds to be the Eagles head coach in 2021.
- Anthony Lynn is favored at +150 to be the next head coach fired.
NEW YORK – Online sportsbooks are hosting betting lines for the fate of key head coaches in the NFL and sports bettors are taking action.
Some of these betting lines could be a great way for sports bettors to break the book. Taking these longshot odds are likely to turn a major profit.
The New York Jets and the Philadelphia Eagles are two teams that have a lot of attention at legal sports betting sites for the fate of their head coach.
Who Will Survive
NFL bettors have been playing their own game of survivor taking action on the fate of head coaches in the NFL.
Current odds are leaning towards Anthony Lynn to be fired first from the Los Angeles Chargers. The chargers are 3-9 and sit dead last in the AFC West.
Next NFL Head Coach To Be Fired Odds
- Anthony Lynn +150
- Adam Gase +225
- Doug Pederson +350
- Doug Marrone +400
- Matt Nagy +525
- Mike Zimmer +1200
- Vic Fangio +1800
- Zac Taylor +1800
- Mike McCarthy +2000
Lynn being the favorite to be fired first is no real surprise. The Chargers have underachieved this season with the talent on their roster, only mustering three wins so far. The team has given Lynn the rest of the season to save his job, deciding against firing him during the season.
“Right now, I don’t have time to worry about job status,” said Lynn when asked about his future as HC. “As long as I’m the head coach here, my focus is trying to get this thing back on track and finish the season out the right way.”
The +150 odds on Lynn is would be a big way to break the book with how the team has made it known he is on the clock. Sports bettors who don’t expect a drastic turn around for the remainder of the season for the Chargers may want to lean in on these odds.
Putting action on the +225 odds for Adam Gase being fired is another way to exploit the odds at online sportsbooks.
Gase is the head coach of the New York Jets and the Jets have yet to win a single game this season. It is highly unlikely for a head coach to lead a team to zero wins and remain the head coach going forward.
The Jets may gain a high lottery pick, but it is doubtful that the front office would want the star rookie to be coached by someone who can’t get a win after 12 games.
New York Jets Position Already Open?
So much so, that even online sportsbooks are already hosting betting lines for who will be the next head coach of the New York Jets. Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy currently has the shortest odds to take the helm.
Who Will Be The New York Jets Head Coach In 2021?
- Eric Bieniemy +300
- Mike Kafka +350
- Robert Salah +500
- Matt Eberflus +550
- Byron Leftwich +600
- Jim Harbaugh +700
- Dabo Swinney +800
- Josh McDaniels +850
- Lincoln Riley +900
- Leslie Frazier +900
The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off of winning a Super Bowl and are currently tied for the best record in the league at 11-1. It is no surprise that the coaching staff would be drawing buzz around the league.
Many teams, including the Jets, will be clambering for Eric Bieniemy to sit as the head coach and the +300 odds could turn a major profit if they manage to land him.
There are rumors around the league, however, that there is growing interest from former Pittsburgh Steelers HC Bill Cower to be the NY Jets next HC, but currently there are no odds for him.
Robert Salah may be an interesting option as well given how much the media has pushed the envelope for him to become a head coach. However, many signs point to him going to Detroit to take over the Detroit Lions current vacancy because he’s a Michigan Native.
The Eagles Woes Too Much To Handle?
Doug Pederson is another head coach likely to be out by the season’s end. Not only are his +350 odds to be fired next appealing, but Pederson has separate betting lines for his future on the Philadelphia Eagles.
Doug Pederson Head Coach Eagles Week 1 2021?
- Yes +120
- No -160
The Eagles have struggled this season and star QB Carson Wentz has played well below his contract all season. In addition, Pederson’s play-calling has been atrocious with poor decisions on fourth down costing games.
Sports bettors who believe can remain the head coach, however, may want to lean in on the +120 longshot odds for him keeping the job. Pederson recently decided to start Jalen Hurts at QB after benching Wentz in the game against the Green Bay Packers.
Should Hurts play well, and Philly ends up with some major wins, then the team may decide to Trade away Wentz and keep Pederson as the head coach.
The odds will definitely shorten should Philly string together some wins so now is the best time to wager for longshot bettors.
The constant shifting in the NFL head coaching position has led to many odds that can be taken advantage of at legal sports betting sites. The best way to break the book is the wager now while the odds are long and appealing.
