Best NFL Players Futures Bets

Best NFL Players Futures Bets

What do these six teams all have in common — the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Rams, Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets?

Answer: They are all at least 100-1 to win Super Bowl LII. Another response might be that they also don’t have an elite player at quarterback, and QBs rule in the NFL. Name the top quarterbacks in the league, and you’re likely naming some of the best teams in the league. Here are some NFL betting props that might make bettors think a little outside the box (odds provided by topbet.eu).

Will Anyone Break Michael Strahan's Sack Record?

strahan
Pick: No (-800)

Last year’s unlikely sack leader was Vic Beasley of the Atlanta Falcons with 15.5. His total was the lowest since 2010, beating Von Miller of the Denver Broncos by two.

Miller has scored the second-most sacks (38.5) in the last three years. Only J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans has more. Watt would be odds-on to win the sack title and threaten Strahan’s record, but he is coming off back surgery.

Other defensive stars to watch are Khalil Mack of the Oakland Raiders, Cameron Wake of the Miami Dolphins and the first overall pick of the draft in Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns.

How Many Games Will Mitch Trubisky Start?

trubisky
Pick: Over 1.5 (+120)

The Chicago Bears front office was happy to sign Tampa Bay backup Mike Glennon in the offseason before drafting Mitchell Trubisky with the second overall pick in the draft. They paid a big price for both players.The plan is to play Glennon while Trubisky develops.

Here’s the problem though. Glennon doesn’t really have any experience either. He’s played in 21 games in four years, good for 30 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.

The Bears, 3-13 last season, have the 19th toughest schedule out of 32 teams. They start the season at home to Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Minnesota, while traveling to Tampa Bay and Green Bay. They could easily be 0-5 behind Glennon.

Will Colin Kaepernick Be On an Opening Day Roster?

kaepernick
Pick: Yes (+160)

Just mention the name Colin Kaepernick and it’s sure to spark a debate. The QB has been a lightning rod for criticism ever since he made the choice to first sit and later kneel during the national anthem prior to games last season.

Kaepernick opted out of his final year with the San Francisco 49ers. It seems no one wants the young talent, with the Baltimore Ravens being the most recent to pass on the 29-year-old. Now the Miami Dolphins may lose starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill to season-ending surgery. Someone will take a chance on Kaepernick. Quarterbacks are the most precious commodity in the NFL.

Will Any Team Be Undefeated During The Regular Season?

undefeated
Pick: No (-2500)

Only two teams in the NFL have ever had a perfect regular season — the 1972 Chicago Bears went 14-0 and the 2007 New England Patriots went 16-0. That’s two teams in 51 seasons.

There has been a lot of talk of the Patriots running the table this season. However, there’s four giant hurdles in their 16-game schedule. They meet two tough opponents at home in Kansas City (Week 1) and Atlanta (Week 7). The Patriots, after playing at Denver in Week 10, then have to travel to Mexico City to battle Oakland.

In Week 15, New England travels to Pittsburgh in an AFC final rematch against the Steelers. The Patriots are more concerned about keeping the Lombardy Trophy than a perfect regular season.

Will Any Team Be Winless During The Regular Season?

winless
Pick: No (-1800)

Only three teams have gone winless in the 51-year history of the NFL — the 1976 Tampa Bay Buccaneers went 0-14, the 1982 Baltimore Colts went 0-8-1 and the 2008 Detroit Lions went 0-16. The odds are stacked against this happening this year even though there’s a few teams — like Cleveland, San Francisco and the New York Jets — that might only win two or three games.
