NFL Rookie of the Year Odds 2022

The NFL’s offensive rookie of the year award is one of a handful of prestigious individual awards dished out by the league each year, and that makes it a hot topic in the sports betting world. It has been somewhat unpredictable over the past couple of years, but there are some players that are better to take chances on than others.

Today we will look at the current NFL betting odds, and discuss who I think are good players to potentially take a shot on for this year. If you’ve been thinking of signing up for a sportsbook or trying betting websites I would suggest doing some research before you jump in. There are a lot of great promotional offers you can take advantage of for first-time signups. It can be a lot of fun!

NFL ROTY Award Odds

  • Dameon Pierce +450
  • Kenneth Walker III +700
  • Chris Olave +900
  • Drake London +1200
  • Garrett Wilson +1200
  • Brian Robinson Jr. +1200
  • Romeo Doubs +1400
  • Kenny Pickett +1400
  • Bailey Zappe +1400
  • George Pickens +1600
  • Wan’Dale Robinson +2000

The top three on this list were a given. Rookie running backs don’t usually take as much time to develop as the other positions, so they have an inherent advantage. You can’t go wrong taking any of those guys.

Further down the list, however, is where you will find the value picks.

George Pickens at +1400 seems like a good mix of value and achievability. He has had an up-and-down start to his season, but he has flashed some serious potential and has shown that he can connect well with QB Kenny Pickett. 

He is currently sitting 11th on this list, and he barely sneaks into the top five wide receivers. That to me doesn’t reflect his potential, and he could really prove some people wrong by the season’s end. 

Pickens is a great player to lock in if you want to cash out big but still have a realistic chance of winning.

Closer to the top of the list, Chris Olave also seems like a good bet.

He has been on a tear when playing lately, and although he missed Week 6’s game due to a concussion, he should continue dominating when he returns. 

Beyond that, he’s been doing it all with some questionable quarterback play, and that’s just more proof of his talent. Michael Thomas and Jarvis Landry have been missing a lot of games recently, and if that continues, Olave could be the top receiver on a solid offense.

He has some high odds to win, but he is certainly one of the safest bets for the award.

To round things out, I have to bring up Jahan Dotson at +3300.

He has some obstacles to overcome. He’s currently dealing with a hamstring injury, his quarterback is set to miss a few weeks with an injury, and he is part of a loaded wide receiver core. 

These obstacles, however, actually serve to make him a better value. He currently has the 15th highest odds of winning the award, and given his performance when he plays, he projects to be a great flier pick.

He has proven to be one of the best rookie receivers when he’s on the field, and he should be back sooner rather than later. He isn’t the flashiest pick of the group, but he simply performs when he’s on the field and is my favorite long-shot bet to win this award.
