(The Spread) - The odds for the NFL's 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year are out and the top two players selected in the 2012 NFL Draft are favored.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv have installed Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III as 1/1 favorites, while Seattle Seahawks' rookie quarterback Russell Wilson is the "long shot" at 3/1.
RGIII is second to only Aaron Rodgers (106.2) of the Packers with a QB Rating of 104.1. Wilson's QB Rating is seventh in the NFL at 98.0 and Luck ranks 29th with a rating of 75.6. But when it comes to yardage, Luck ranks first among the rookie signal callers with 4,183 yards, while RGIII currently has 3,100 yards and Wilson has 2,868 yards heading into Week 17.
As far as touchdown passes, Wilson has 25, Luck has 21 and RGIII has 20. Luck has thrown the most interceptions with 18, while RGIII has turned it over the fewest times at 5 and Wilson has thrown 10 picks on the year.
In other NFL player odds, Peyton Manning is currently favored over Adrian Peterson for NFL regular season MVP. The Denver Broncos quarterback is 1/2 while the Minnesota Vikings running back has odds of 3/2 to win the MVP. But if Peterson winds up breaking Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record, those odds could change.
