Passing Yard Prop Odds

Oddsmakers have released the player prop odds for the NFL season and have made New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees the favorite to throw the most gross passing yards in ’09.

Brees has been made a 9/4 favorite by online sports book Sports Interaction to throw the most gross passing yards in 2009, which betters New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who is listed right behind Brees at 9/2.

While he doesn’t necessarily offer much value at 9/4, Brees would be a solid bet since he led the NFL in passing yards last season with 5,069. That was good for almost 500 more yards than the Arizona Cardinals’ Kurt Warner, who passed for 4,583. Warner has been given 15/2 odds to throw the most passing yards in ’09.

Newly acquired Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler also had a solid 2008 campaign, throwing for 4,526 yards. But because he goes to Chicago, who is not known for having quality receivers, Cutler is a 15/1 long shot to compile the most passing yards in 2009.

A couple of quarterbacks to keep an eye on in terms of total passing yards are Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel (18/1), Philadelphia Eagles signal caller Donovan McNabb (9/1) and the Cincinnati Bengals’ Carson Palmer (16/1). All represent a fair amount of value given the offense they’re in (Cassel), the weapons around them (McNabb), or are coming back from injury and could surprise with a rebound season (Palmer).

Of course, never count out Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning (5/1) either.
