The NFL regular season is just about a month away, so now is the perfect time to inspect all of the year’s props and futures.
West Virginia sportsbooks all have plenty of different markets to choose from, as well as odds for preseason games.
The preseason officially got underway on Thursday night with the Hall of Fame Game from Canton, Ohio. While the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t put on their best performance, it was great to officially have football back.
It is also a treat that fans are allowed back inside stadiums. Thursday’s game and the rest of the schedule should feature full stands once again.
With WV online sportsbooks offering so many interesting player props and totals, let’s narrow down some of the best available options.
NFL Player Props At WV Sportsbooks
Passing Yards Leader 2021
One of the most common prop bets to take is based around the quarterback. Although you can probably guess who’s listed as the favorite, the leader for most passing yards has more than enough contenders.
Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes is the favorite to throw for the most yards at +300 on DraftKings Sportsbook WV. The former MVP and Super Bowl champ is basically the favorite for any market he’s available in.
That doesn’t mean he’ll win everything with ease, though.
Since the NFL is such a passing league now, a lot of different quarterbacks can easily contend for this honor.
The online sportsbook shows the Cowboys’ Dak Prescott with the second-best odds at +550.
Not only is Dallas’ offense loaded basically everywhere, its defense is likely to be near the bottom of the league. This should mean lots of high-scoring affairs and Prescott throwing often in second halves, looking to get his team back.
Josh Allen is next at +800. The Bills enjoyed a breakout season in 2020 thanks to their impressive QB. Allen threw for more than 4,500 yards a year ago.
DraftKings has a trio of familiar veterans available to bet at +1000. The ageless Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford each feature fantastic supporting casts around them.
While Brady is back with Tampa Bay and Rodgers reluctantly still in Green Bay, Stafford has a new home. He’ll look to begin his new chapter with the Los Angeles Rams with a great season.
Here’s how the rest of the odds look at DraftKings:
- Justin Herbert +1200
- Joe Burrow +1400
- Matt Ryan +1400
- Russell Wilson +2000
- Kyler Murray +3500
- Kirk Cousins +4000
- Trevor Lawrence +4000
- Ben Roethlisberger +4000
- Ryan Tannehill +4000
DraftKings Interception Leader
Most fans enjoying rooting for players to succeed; however, there are many out there who don’t mind betting on failure. With DraftKings, you can put action down on which quarterback is going to lead the league in interceptions in 2021.
The current and most recent New York Jets quarterbacks are among those favored, along with Washington’s new signal caller.
Sam Darnold, Zach Wilson and Ryan Fitzpatrick are each +800, but several others are right behind them.
The Lions’ new QB, Jared Goff, is in for a rude awakening with his lack of playmakers. He’s available at +900, the same odds as turnover-prone Daniel Jones of the Giants.
Regular Season Receptions Odds
All the passing means several wide receivers are likely to post some big numbers statistically as well.
Despite the fact that you typically associate the receptions leader with just wideouts, there are a couple of tight ends vying for the top odds.
At FanDuel WV, both Travis Kelce and Darren Waller find themselves in the top five. Kelce has the third-best odds at +600, while Waller at fifth has odds of +1700.
Buffalo’s Stefon Diggs is the overall favorite at +420. The Cardinals’ DeAndre Hopkins is just behind him, according to the online sportsbook, at +460.
Diggs broke through last year to reach the status of one of the NFL’s elite. He caught 127 passes for over 1,500 yards.
This was just his second season with more than 100 receptions.
On the other hand, Hopkins has reached the century mark in catches for three consecutive seasons now, including 115 in two of them.
Green Bay’s Davante Adams falls in between the two “linemen,” with odds of +750.
No one is happier than Adams to have his future Hall of Fame quarterback back in the building. It appeared for a moment that Rodgers might choose to retire rather than play for his current front office.
But with the combination in Green Bay intact, both have the opportunity to look spectacular yet again. Adams set a new career high in receptions last year with 115, too.
Two notable AFC West receivers are tied with Waller with odds of +1700.
Despite his lack of size, Kansas City’s Tyreek Hill is a menace to cover because of his blistering speed. There’s no doubt he’s one of the best going, but his usage volume is never overwhelming.
His best season featured 87 receptions.
Hill’s divisional foe, the Chargers’ Allen, appears to have more value at this price. He’s recorded at least 100 catches in three of the last four seasons.
FanDuel shows the following odds for additional reception contenders:
- Cooper Kupp +2000
- Calvin Ridley +2000
- Robert Woods +2300
- Justin Jefferson +2300
- Allen Robinson +2300
- Terry McLaurin +2600
- Tyler Lockett +2600
FanDuel NFL Season Specials
Alongside the wide selection of player props, FanDuel also has some interesting markets under its Season Specials category.
Bettors can take whether the Bucs and the Chiefs can pull off a perfect regular season.
This year, there are 17 total regular games played over the course of 18 weeks. Obviously, that information is helpful when considering player and team totals.
FanDuel has the Bucs to go 17-0 at +5000, while the Chiefs are shown at +3400 to accomplish what hasn’t been done since the Patriots pulled it off in 2007.
