I usually have a whole portfolio of period-lengthy awards bets, but outside the house of a 40-to-1 MVP ticket on Dak Prescott (insert unhappy trombone noise soon after last week’s drubbing by the Buffalo Payments) I’m woefully limited on these markets.
Alas, there’s normally following yr … or perhaps the future a few months?
Soon after all, really minimal is entirely settled in the awards markets, starting with …
Brock Purdy has rocketed to the top rated o’ the on line sports betting charts, as he’s now a -200 preferred at FanDuel. But items could adjust substantially by the close of Xmas Day, right after the Niners and Ravens have finished their activity. Baltimore’s Lamar Jackson takes the discipline as the 2nd favorite for MVP at Caesars. at +525. A Ravens earn on Jackson’s back again could flip the odds for the award across the cell betting applications.
More down the board? Josh Allen has been surging, now at +1000 at BetMGM, and if the Expenditures operate the table, he could very easily come across himself deep in the discussion. Dak can be had for +900, but I think far better longshots are Christian McCaffrey at +1400 at Fanatics Sportsbook and Tyreek Hill at +2500 at FanDuel. Hill is most likely a better wager, as McCaffrey’s and Purdy’s fortunes are tied jointly. But if the Dolphins gain out, perhaps get a bye, and Hill hits the 2,000-garden mark … effectively, all matters regarded as, most likely not, but however really worth a sprinkle.
Coach of the yr
This one particular is extensive open up. Dan Campbell is the favorite at +200 at DraftKings, followed by Shane Steichen at +300 and Demeco Ryans at +350. These are three coaches whose groups are outperforming expectations.
But what about Kyle Shanahan at +450, whose workforce is the ideal in the NFL? Or Mike McDaniel at +650, who has unlocked the Dolphins offense? Or Kevin Stefanski at +1200, who someway has the Browns primed for the playoffs in spite of rummaging by means of the trash pile at quarterback? Or Sean McVay at +1600, who is using a Rams team no one anticipated something out of to the playoffs (almost certainly)? (Value noting: McVay was +3000 right before the team’s Thursday night win.)

Comeback player of the 12 months
Damar Hamlin died on the industry past calendar year, and this calendar year has been energetic for 4 video games, taking part in in two. Recorded two tackles. And has performed a grand total of 16 snaps.
He’s the -700 favorite at DraftKings.
Now, evidently, by the definition of “comeback,” from dying to 16 snaps is rather important. But will the voters see it that way? If not, you’ve obtained Joe Flacco, Matthew Stafford, Baker Mayfield, and Tua Tagovailoa to select by means of, all at +1000 or a lot more. Take Hamlin out, and this is a extensive-open up contest.
And last up for now …
Offensive participant of the 12 months
It is McCaffrey vs. Hill. The previous is the -150 favored at Caesars, the latter a +125 underdog at FanDuel. Most effective information? Retain a close eye on odds motion, as there’s a chance you may be ready to decide on them both of those at moreover odds ought to McCaffrey stumble and/or Hill go off and some sports betting web pages are sluggish to react.
On to 7 days 16 …
The +1000 or a lot more parlay of the 7 days
Now we’re -15.
Every thing is great, have a cup of espresso, hardly ever head the flames.
This 7 days, at DraftKings, give me about 40.5 in Jags-Bucs … the Panthers outright at dwelling against the Packers … and the Colts outright on the highway versus the Falcons — with the grand complete at +1107.
Rationale: The Jags and Bucs can not halt the go, ergo there will be a whole lot of passing. The Panthers are actively playing scrappy, are at household, and protect the move exceedingly very well. As for the Colts-Falcons? This is basic. Shane Steichen -infinity in excess of Arthur Smith.
The on-paper, no doubt, three-workforce teaser that is certain to lose
Down to 7-7 — but nevertheless worthwhile with these +160 bets at BetMGM, many thanks to not likely the dynamic teaser route.
This week, gimme the Colts +8.5 in Atlanta, the Panthers +10.5 at dwelling towards Eco-friendly Bay, and the Broncos laying a point at property versus New England.
Favourite that can make me anxious
Past 7 days I pushed, expressing the Browns as discipline aim favorites more than the Bears produced me nervous, and … they received by three. I guess I was right in being anxious.
This week, I’m going suitable again to the Colts and Falcons. The Falcons are 2.5-point favorites because …? Why? I never get it.
Participant props I like
Went 1-2 final week, down to 19-31. For the file, if my participant props are bad — which they have been — then my DFS engage in is abysmal. No pleasure in Mudville around right here.
Chuba Hubbard around 73.5 speeding yards, -115 at DraftKings: He’s completed this the very last 3 months working. The Packers have been abysmal against the run.
David Njoku in excess of 49.5 acquiring yards, -115 at DraftKings. Njoku has strike this quantity 5 out of the previous 6 weeks. Looks not likely he won’t have the chance to smash it once more.
Did I acquire the DraftKings Milly Maker?
My mortal lock five-star only for my ideal customers just cannot drop confirmed ideal wager of the 7 days
Up to 6-9, with the Bengals just hardly acquiring more than the 2.5 details I gave to the Vikings. Initially time I’ve been lucky all calendar year, it feels like. In any case, this 7 days, let’s keep the good vibes rolling. Give me the Panthers, +5! Oh yeah!
