MyBookie’s props are ahead of the game once again, as a full slate of NFL rookie props are now available under their “NFL Specials” section.
Because I was curious and I like to compare odds between sites, I searched the internet trying to find similar props, but was unable to find anything related to or close to the props listed on MyBookie’s site.
Since these props were listed so early, there’s definitely some value to be found if you look into the players and their situations close enough. I’ll list some of the props I find interesting below:
2019 NFL Rookie of the Year Props
First Rookie to Score a TD
There are thirteen different options for this wager, but I like David Montgomery here at +200 odds. He figures to be Chicago’s goal-line on a team that features Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis in the backfield. They’ll be playing at home vs. Green Bay week 1 who they scored two goal-line rushing touchdowns against in 2018. Chicago’s offense had no trouble scoring last year and figures to put up more points in 2019 as they get more accustomed to Matt Nagy’s offense. I definitely see Montgomery punching one in during his inaugural game as a Bear.
I can also see D.K. Metcalf coming away with the first touchdown at +800. Doug Baldwin might have played his last down and the Seahawks don’t really have another red zone target, so Russell Wilson has to throw touchdowns to someone.
Will Grier Starts in 2019-2020
- 2019 Rookie of the Year Odds: O/U 0.5
I like the over here purely because I don’t trust Cam Newton to stay healthy all year. The only way I see this not hitting is if Grier simply isn’t ready and they bring in one of Heinicke or Allen to spot start. Still, at +140, I like the odds.
Kyle Murray or Josh Rosen More Wins in 2019
The Cardinals and Dolphins both have an over/under of 5 this season, so this bet is a matter of who you think will get the starting position first. Murray only has to beat out Brett Hundley, and Rosen has to beat out Ryan Fitzpatrick. I actually think both these guys get the start week 1, as the other options are not appealing whatsoever. I think the Dolphins roster is better than it’s given credit for, so I’m going to go with Rosen here, especially with his +110 odds.
