Brady vs Rivers, Marino Record Props

All you have heard about since the season started is quarterbacks.

Peyton Manning won’t play, David Garrard got unceremoniously cut, Carson Palmer is quitting, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees had an epic battle to start the season, Cam Newton was brilliant, Tom Brady was more brilliant.

This week, it’s Michael Vick going back to Atlanta, Brady vs Philip Rivers in another epic showdown, how long will relic Kerry Collins survive in Indy and will any of them break Dan Marino’s passing record of 5,084 yards.

Whew – and to think there QB prop odds on all of those debates at Bovada right now!

Will anyone break Dan Marino’s Passing Record?

It’s early, but as soon as Brady erupted for 517 yards against the Dolphins, you knew it would come up. Bovada knew it to, so they posted odds on it right away. The ‘No’ wager is favored at -700, while ‘Yes’ is +400 underdog (meaning a $100 bet profits $400). If any QB can average 318 yards per week, he can break the mark. The way 2011 has started, four or five guys might do it.

Will Peyton Manning Play in 2011?

Football’s current QB Iron Man is out and now fans are wondering if he will play at all. Or if the Colts play like they did in Week 1, does he even want to? The odds favor the ‘No’ oopinion at -400 at Bovada. If you think he will recover from neck surgery and play in 2011, you can make a nice +250 profit.

Where will Garrard sign?

After getting dumped by the Jaguars, Garrard should find work with a QB-starved team. The Colts are favored at 3/2 at Bovada as they suffer the rare fate of being home underdogs (and to Cleveland no less) with Collins at the controls. The Bengals, with the Palmer drama ongoing, are second choice at 5/2, followed by the Seahawks and Dolphins at 5/1.

How long til Collins gets the boot?

Bodog has 2.5 games as the over-under for poor Kerry and if he falters against the Browns, two games might be all he gets.

Brady vs Rivers

Brady and Rivers have engaged in some classic duels before and this could be another. While the Chargers are big underdogs (-8.5 at 5Dimes as of Wednesday), the wagering between Brady and Rivers on who will have the most passing yards is even odds.[ Matchup Report ]

Mike Vick ‘Home’ in Atlanta

The Eagles visit the Falcons as road chalk but the Michael Vick drama is what drives the NFL prop betting on this game. How many passing yards will he have; will he rush for a TD; how many times will announcers mention his $100 million contract during the telecast. There are lots more. Oh and the trend on the spread is a big one favouring Philly (they are 10-1-1 ATS past 12 vs Falcons).)

Grand Salami of Passing Yards

You have bet the Grand Salami in hockey (total goals scored by all teams in one day) and all these crazy QB performances got Bovada to thinking. Why not a passing yard grand salami? The total is 7,200 by the way (roughly 450 passing yards per game).
