Offensive Rookie of the Year Odds
LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – Will Johnny Manziel win the 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year? He’s currently not favored.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Manziel isn’t the favorite to win the 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Instead, it’s his teammate from Texas A&M Mike Evans, who is a 3/1 favorite after being drafted by the Buccaneers. Manziel, meanwhile, is 15/2 to win the OROY after being taken by the Cleveland Browns in the first-round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Continuing with the odds, Sammy Watkins of the Bills is 4/1 to win the 2014 OROY award while Marqise Lee of the Jaguars, Kelvin Benjamin of the Panthers and Teddy Bridgewater of the Vikings are all 12/1, respectively. Bishop Sankey of the Titans is also 14/1, while Odell Beckham of the Giants and Jordan Matthews of the Eagles are both 16/1, respectively.
Packers’ receiver Devante Adams and Broncos’ wideout Cody Latimer are 18/1, respectively, while Jace Amaro, Eric Ebron, Jeremy Hill, Blake Bortles and Brandin Cooks are all 20/1, respectively. Tre Mason, Charles Sims and Jarvis Landry are all 33/1, respectively, giving them the longest odds to win the 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
Cooks might be the ultimate sleeper. He was drafted in the first round by the Saints and will become Drew Brees and Sean Payton’s new offensive toy. The team also traded up for him, so you know that Payton won’t underutilize him. Cooks is an explosive playmaker that can be lined up in the slot, out wide or even in the backfield, so expect Payton to unleash him on opponents this season.
