Jacobs, Murray Headline Offensive Rookie of the Year Odds

2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year Award Odds

Oakland Raiders running back Josh Jacobs’ impressive rookie campaign has raised eyebrows through the NFL, and he’s become the odds-on favorite to win the 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year Award as a result.

Jacobs is the -140 fave at Bovada, with Kyler Murray (+175), Gardner Minshew (+1400), D.K. Metcalf (+1400), Daniel Jones (+2000), Marquise Brown (+2500), David Montgomery (+2500), Terry McLaurin (+3300), A.J. Brown (+3300) and Mecole Hardman (+4000) behind him on the list.

Jacobs is Looking Unstoppable

Jacobs has breathed new life into a dormant Raiders running game that struggled to get anything going on the ground in 2018, as the 21-year-old has 168 carries for 811 rushing yards and seven touchdowns through nine games. Jacobs scored the go-ahead touchdown late in the Raiders’ 26-24 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers in the Week 10 edition of Thursday Night Football to finish the game with 71 yards.

The Alabama product averages 18.7 carries per game and is the only back in the last seven years with two games of 25 or more carries and no negative runs, per the Associated Press’ Josh Dubow. Jacobs has already broken Marcus Allen’s franchise rookie rushing record.

Montgomery ranks second among first-year backs with 406 rushing yards, meaning no rookie is within 400 yards of Jacobs’ total. Expect Jacobs’ odds to win OROY to continue to improve in the coming weeks.

Can Murray Make a Late Charge?

Murray remains the only man who can challenge Jacobs for the hardware at this point. The 2018 Heisman Trophy winner has fared well in his new surroundings in Arizona, but the 3-5-1 Cardinals continue to struggle in the tough NFC West and are on a two-game losing streak heading into Week 10.

Like Jacobs a week later, Murray put on a big-time performance against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 9 TNF, throwing for 241 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 34 yards in the Cardinals’ 28-25 loss.

Minshew Has Fallen Out of the Race

A month ago, Minshew could’ve been considered a threat to compete with Jacobs and Murray, but the rookie QB’s miracle season came to a screeching halt in Jacksonville’s 26-3 blowout loss to Houston at Wembley Stadium in Week 9. “Minshew Mania” had taken over northern Florida after Nick Foles went down with a clavicle injury in Week 1, yet Minshew turned the ball over four times (two interceptions and two fumbles) in a mistake-filled game.

With Foles set to come off the IR, coach Doug Marrone has announced that the ex-Philadelphia Eagle will return as the starting quarterback over Minshew when the team returns from its bye week against Indianapolis on November 17. Minshew’s +1400 price may look appealing, but his chances of becoming the 2019 OROY are slim to none at this point.
