NFL Futures 2020 – Mahomes and Jackson Battle for MVP

NFL Futures 2020 – Mahomes and Jackson Battle for MVP

Check out the best available odds and picks for your NFL Futures bets.

Last year, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs pulled off an amazing Super Bowl run, winning the Chiefs’ first ring in 50 years over the San Francisco 49ers. One of the hottest NFL futures in 2020 will be the battle between Mahomes and Lamar Jackson for the NFL MVP. Will the Chiefs repeat their dominance over the NFL or will the Ravens spoil a potential dynasty?

Last year, the central narrative of the NFL was the crowing of Patrick Mahomes and the first Super Bowl of Andy Reid’s amazing career. Kansas repeatedly flirted with elimination throughout the playoffs, culminating in a spectacular Super Bowl win over the 49ers that felt pre-destined.

This year, it feels like Lamar Jackson’s time to shine. The Ravens also happen to have an outstanding defence and a genius coach who will build on last year’s breakthrough.

Pick – Baltimore Ravens 7.50

One of the biggest questions surrounding the 49ers off-season was whether or not Robert Saleh would get his own head coaching job with another club. He stayed, which cemented San Francisco’s core from last year’s Super Bowl appearance.

Tampa’s overrated with the ageing Brady and Gronk combo and the Cowboys are only theoretical contenders. Look for the Saints to enjoy another outstanding regular season en route to the Super Bowl in Drew Bree’s swan song.

Pick – New Orleans Saints 6.50

AFC Outright Winner Odds & Picks

Kansas City Chiefs

Indianapolis Colts

12.00 12.00 14.00

The Ravens will easily outclass the majority of their competition as long as Jackson remains healthy. Belichick will ensure that the Patriots defence gets them into the playoffs, but don’t expect them to win another conference title. Expect Kansas City and Baltimore to battle it out for a top spot in the AFC, with the Ravens holding an edge over the Chiefs with superior defence.

If you’re looking for a dark horse, consider the Colts outstanding performance last postseason to be something that the team could repeat if everyone stays healthy.

Pick – Baltimore Ravens 4.00

Deshaun Watson

15.00 14.00 13.50

Dak Prescott

17.00 19.00 18.00

Perhaps the category with the best odds of a longshot win, Jackson and Mahomes will be considered the favourites to battle throughout the season for this award. However, Deshaun Watson has been a dynamic, game-breaking quarterback for the past few years, and hasn’t received his due.

At 15.00 odds, picking Watson for MVP provides outstanding value. Dak Prescott at 17.00 appears to be a reflection of him as a popular betting option with Cowboys fans, so he’s the worst value out of the top five.

Pick – Deshaun Watson 15.00

CeeDee Lamb

Joe Burrow is a hulking example of an archetypal young quarterback ready to make the leap to the big leagues. The latest on Burrow has been a viral story about how he sparked a brawl during his time at LSU.

Prior to his catastrophic injury, Tua Tagovailoa was considered a shoe-in as a top rookie QB. His odds have dropped to 8.00 due to injury, not lack of ability, so it’s worth taking a flyer on Tua at 8.00.

Pick – Tua Tagovailoa 8.00 

Defensive Rookie of the Year 2020 Odds & Picks

Defensive Rookie of the Year Odds sports-interaction 888sport betonline

Chase Young

AJ Epenesa

16.00 15.00 14.00

Grant Delpit

16.00 16.00 17.00

It looks like the Cardinals will take the patient approach with Isaiah Simmons, focusing on playing him in a single role to begin the season. He’ll discover his NFL game as a linebacker instead of leveraging his athleticism and skills in different defensive roles.

In contrast, second overall pick Chase Young will be a focal point at multiple defensive positions, giving his 6’5”, 265-pound frame an opportunity to run amok. He’ll also benefit immensely from Ron Rivera as a coach instead of Jay Gruden. Consider Young a legitimate favourite as a defensive rookie of the year.

Pick – Chase Young 3.00 

Most Passing Yards Odds & Picks

Most Passing Yards Odds sports-interaction 888sport betonline

Patrick Mahomes

Tom Brady

9.00 9.00 8.50

Aaron Rodgers

9.00 9.00 11.00

Matt Ryan

9.00 9.00 10.00

Yes, Brady passed for 4,000 yards again and played in every single game last year. Still, it’s extremely difficult to believe that he’ll be able to challenge Mahomes and Rodgers for the most passing yards thrown in the 2020 NFL regular season.

At 8.15, Brady is wildly overrated. Instead, focusing on the easy pick of Mahomes at a very reasonable 4.05 odds will be the best play. He’s simply too good to ignore.

Pick – Mahomes 4.05

Another relatively easy pick, Michael Thomas had more than 300 yards over the next receiver, Julio Jones, leading the NFL with 1,725 yards as the Saints top option. Jones will be dealing with an ageing Matt Ryan and lingering injuries.

If DeAndre Hopkins and Watson can both stay healthy, Hopkins will be Thomas’ main competition for most receiving yards.

Pick – Michael Thomas 4.30 

Tom Brady Passing Touchdowns

  • Over/Under 29.5 (1.91/1.91)

Over 29.5

1.91 1.95 1.95

Under 29.5

1.91 1.90 1.90

This is the year where we discover just how much Coach Belichick influenced the longevity of the career of Tom Brady. It’s difficult to see Brady getting the same protection and level of play calling that he did with the Patriots.

Considering his difficulties during the stretch run of the 2019 season, and his lack of pop in the playoffs, betting under is a solid idea.

Bet – Under 29.5 1.91
