• Patrick Mahomes has +325 odds to be the passing TD leader in the 2021 NFL season.
• Tom Brady has +525 odds while Aaron Rodgers has +650 odds.
NEW YORK – A lot of action is being placed on big names like Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady, and Aaron Rodgers to be the passing TD leader during the 2021 NFL season.
Rodgers led the field in 2020 while Mahomes tied for third with Russell Wilson. NFL betting fans should look at odds for players like Wilson, Josh Allen, and Dak Prescott to pull the upset as they have long odds at legal sports betting sites.
Passing Touchdown Leader 2021-22 Regular Season
- Patrick Mahomes +325

Three Headed Monster
Unsurprisingly, the trio of Mahomes, Brady, and Rodgers have the shortest odds with Mahomes being the heavy favorite. Mahomes and Brady faced one another in the Super Bowl and Aaron Rodgers is the reigning MVP and reigning passing TD leader.

Leaning in on the +525 odds for Tom Brady may be the best decision. Brady had eight more TDs than Mahomes last season and Rodgers is still going through turmoil with the Green Bay Packers.
Brady also threw for 50 TDs while on a torn MCL, as Brady revealed he played through injury during the 2020 season. A fully healthy season could see Brady lead all other QBs in this betting line.
For longshot betting fans, however, there are a few QBs like Josh Allen, Russell Wilson, and Dak Prescott who could have breakout seasons and be passing leaders.
Out of all these underdog QBs, however, Prescott has the best position to be the passing leader in the 2021 NFL season.
Dak began the 2021 NFL season playing the best football of his entire career. Dak threw for two consecutive 400 yard games in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons and Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Prescott was unfortunately injured in Week 4, sidelining him for the rest of the season. His performance was so strong, that even weeks after his injury he remained the passing leader.
Playing in the NFC East, the arguably weakest division in the league, Prescott and the Cowboys will play the Washington Football Team twice, the New York Giants twice, and the Philadelphia Eagles twice.
These teams were towards the bottom of the league defensively during the 2021 season and will likely be exploitable again this season.
