Odds to Win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year

Newton co-favorite for NFL Offensive Rookie

The NFL looks to be putting the finishing touches on a new collective bargaining agreement and that means there should be football soon (knock on wood). Betting fans have already started discussing the 2011 NFL season in the football forums.

There will be plenty of interesting players to keep an eye on, with rookies always at the top of the list. Here’s a look at the NFL AP Offensive Rookie of the Year odds from Bodog.

Note a quarterback has won this award three of the last five years, with St. Louis’ Sam Bradford getting the nod last season.

Cam Newton (11/2) is the co-favorite, but he’ll be playing for a Carolina team thatwas last in the NFL in offense and may be without top receiver Steve Smith. Newton is also not close to being a pure passer and these odds look dramatically overvalued.

Julio Jones (11/2) will get plenty of playing time after Atlanta spent a King’s Ransom on trading up for him. However, the Falcons already have a number one receiver in Roddy White and quarterback Matt Ryan has never put up huge passing numbers.

A.J. Green (13/2) could be Cincinnati’s top receiver, but quarterback Carson Palmer says he would rather retire than put on a Bengals uniform again. Rookie Andy Dalton is the backup option, but his learning curve is huge coming from TCU’s offense.

New Orleans’ Mark Ingram (15/2) has value at these odds after the Saints acquired another first-round pick from New England to draft him. Ingram has an NFL ready body after starring at Alabama and should put up yards despite a crowded stable of backs.

Detroit running back Mikel Leshoure (12/1) is another value pick given Jahvid Best’s inability to stay healthy.The same goes for Daniel Thomas (16/1) given Miami’s current running back need.
