CINCINNATI – The NFL future offensive and defensive rookie of the year (ROTY) odds have sports bettors wagering on who they feel will showcase their talents the best this upcoming season.
The number one pick Joe Burrow and the number two pick Chase Young have the shortest odds among all rookies to take the award.
Players like CeeDee lamb have long odds to win, but looking at their team situation, it may be an easy choice to bet on an underdog this season.
ROTY 2020 NFL Season
Starting with offensive rookie, NFL sportsbooks are unsurprisingly looking for the Cincinnati Bengals new starter QB Joe Burrow to make a statement this season. He leads all offensive rookies with the shortest odds at many legal sports betting sites.
Burrow has +250 odds to take home the honor, with the next shortest odds belonging to Kansas City Chiefs new running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire at +500.
Offensive Rookie Of The Year:
- Joe Burrow +250
- Clyde Edwards-Helaire +500
- Jonathan Taylor +900
- Tua Tagovailoa +1000
- Cam Akers +1200
- D’Andre Swift +1200
- Ceedee Lamb +1400
- J.K. Dobbins +1600
- Jerry Jeudy +1600
- Justin Herbert +1600
A long shot player sports bettors should keep a close eye on is Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb. Many analysts are expecting the Cowboys offense to improve this season, and part of that has to do with them drafting CeeDee Lamb.
Cowboys Executive Vice President and CEO Stephen Jones expressed his excitement to add Lamb to the Cowboys offense alongside other receivers, believing this gives QB Dak Prescott a bevy of weapons.
“As Mike said, you hate to put that kind of pressure — whether that’s on Dak, whether that’s on the three receivers,” said Jones. “We certainly feel good about it. Obviously when you get to get a player like CeeDee Lamb, and in our opinion, and there’s varying opinions in the league, but in our opinion who was the best receiver in the draft, then you couple with him with two 1,000-yard receivers, then you certainly feel good about that opportunity or that chance to happen.”
The defensive rookie of the year odds are also unsurprising. The Washington Redskins Chase Young has the shortest odds amongst all defensive rookies at +500.
Defensive Rookie Of The Year:
- Chase Young +500
- Isaiah Simmons +1000
- Kenneth Murray +1400
- Patrick Queen +1400
- A.J. Epenesa +2000
- Akeem Davis-Gaither +2500
- Ashtyn Davis +2500
- CJ Henderson +2500
- Curtis Weaver +2500
- Derrick Brown +2500
The field is a bit more open for these odds. While Chase Young has the talent to be able to capture this award, the Redskins franchise has a proven track record of not being able to maximize the talent of their roster.
A player such as Patrick Queen could thrive in a place like Baltimore where defense has proved to be the priority in years past, and the team’s high-powered offense now will lighten the load on his side of the ball. His odds of +1400 cannot be overlooked, but that could be said about many players for this bet.
The upcoming NFL season will be the time sports bettors can see how well these prospected superstars are able to impact the game early. These players were selected in the NFL Draft based on how well they showed their skills on the collegiate level, but not as many will shine once they’re in the pros.
