NEW ORLEANS – Jameis Winston, while not officially the starting quarterback of the New Orleans Saints, is expected to win the job. Due to his proven ability to fill up the stats sheet, bettors are jumping on his longshot futures odds.
Jameis Winston To Lead The League In Passing Yards
The last time Jameis Winston was a starting quarterback in the NFL, he led the league in passing yards with 5109 yards and added 30 touchdowns. Of course, he threw 30 interceptions as well, but those don’t necessarily matter for betting purposes.
Online gambling sites are seeing a lot of betting action on Winston to lead the league in yards once again.
Jameis Winston To Lead NFL In Passing Yards
- Yes +5000
BetMGM has reported that nearly 25% of the handle is on Winston with 15% of the placed bets. Winston’s negatives have never had anything to do with his arm talent or ability to rack up yards and if he’s given the green light in the Saints’ offense he could fill the stat sheet again.
Can Jameis Winston Compete For MVP?
Certain football betting sites have seen Winston’s odds improve in the MVP race since the start of the preseason as bettors are seemingly impressed by his performance.
Jameis Winston To Win MVP
- Yes +5000
Objectively, Winston has a much better chance at leading the league in passing yards than he does to win MVP, but the odds reflect the same betting line.
Of course, Winston first needs to officially win the starting job. The NFL player prop odds could potentially change when the starting QB gets announced, but just in case bettors still may be better off waiting for the news to drop.
Jameis Winston is a 27 year old Heisman winning, former #1 overall pick. He’s one of only 8 quarterbacks in NFL *history* to throw for 5,000 yards in a season.
People gave up on Jameis way too early!
