NFL Draft Review: Odds and Props

Did you expect the drafting of Cam Newton to move the Carolina Panthers up the NFL futures list? The Panthers did see a change, hitting 100/1 on the Super Bowl futures, up from 125/1 at Bovada, but they still have the same lackluster team that went 2-14 a year ago around Newton. Betting on the Panthers to win anything next year seems like a waste of time, especially if some experts are still wondering if Newton will be the next Matt Ryan or the next JaMarcus Russell.

If you're going to be betting on Newton to do anything this year you'd be better off looking at some of the NFL props he appears on at Bovada right now. That include Odds to Win AP Offensive Rookie of the Year and Who will be the starting QB for Carolina in Game 1 of the Regular Season?

For the NFL prop on offensive ROTY Newton is the favorite at 5/1. He's also the favorite to start Game 1 for the Panthers over incumbent Jimmy Clausen; Newton is listed at 2/5, while Clausen is a 5/2 underdog.

The large number of quarterbacks taken in this year's draft and uncertainty at the position for some teams has meant a few more starting QB props on the NFL page at Bovada. Think you know who will be the starting QB for Cincinnati, Minnesota, or Tennessee in Game 1? Then place a bet at Bovada.

For Cincinnati your options are current QB Carson Palmer (11/2) and newly-drafted Andy Dalton (3/2). This one will likely depend on what happens with Palmer. He's already stated numerous times he's done playing for the Bengals, but if Cincinnati can't find anyone to take him that could change and Dalton could begin his NFL career watching from the sidelines.

For Minnesota there are a number of options, including newly-drafted  Christian Ponder as the favorite at 2/1. There's also Joe Webb (7/1), Tarvaris Jackson (10/1), and Donovan McNabb (4/1) - due to rumors of the Vikings going after the veteran. You can also choose Other QB at 6/5, which might be a good pick in case Brett Favre decides for the umpteenth time he's still not done with football.

Finally, there's Tennessee. This is simply a choice between newly-drafted Jake Locker at +150 and Other QB at -200. If Locker comes into camp and performs as inconsistently as he did in his final year at Washington there's no way he will be starting in the Titans' season opener. After the Vince Young debacle the Titans will likely want to ease Locker into the starting job, so Other QB seems like the logical choice at -200.
