NFL Offensive Player of the Year betting favorites
A slight favorite has emerged among the top candidates at the best sports betting sites. But the tight range in the odds suggests that this could be a compelling race to watch as the season plays out.
- Justin Jefferson (Vikings):
- Garrett Wilson (Jets):
- Ja’Marr Chase (Bengals):
- Christian McCaffrey (49ers):
- Cooper Kupp (Rams):
Jefferson was last season’s winner. He led the league in both receptions and receiving yards with 128 catches for 1,809 yards. Wilson was the Offensive Rookie of the Year and could take another leap forward following the Jets’ acquisition of Aaron Rodgers.
Chase and McCaffrey are both focal points in their respective offenses and have the potential to put up prolific numbers once again. Kupp returns from injury with the expectation that he’ll go right back to being a key cog in the Rams’ offense.

Other top contenders
Right behind the top betting favorites in the latest odds is another group of players who have the potential to be factors in how the award chase plays out.
- Tyreek Hill (Dolphins):
- Davante Adams (Raiders):
- Jonathan Taylor (Colts):
- Derrick Henry (Titans):
- Jalen Hurts (Eagles):
Hill is getting set for his second season with the Dolphins. He was second in the league a season ago with 119 catches for 1,710 yards. Adams was outstanding in his first season with the Raiders. He’ll look to build chemistry with new Las Vegas QB Jimmy Garoppolo.
Taylor’s season ended with an ankle injury, and the hope is that he and the Colts will rebound quickly. Henry continues to be a force out of the backfield for the Titans, while Hurts is at the helm for one of the league’s most prolific offenses.

Which position is the best bet for Offensive Player of the Year?
A receiver has won the NFL Offensive Player of the Year award in each of the past two seasons. Over the past decade, it has been spread out pretty evenly: four QBs, three RBs and three WRs. Here’s the all-time breakdown stretching back to the award’s inception in 1972.
- QB: 20, last in 2018
- RB: 26, last in 2020
- WR: 5, last in 2022
Receivers are well behind quarterbacks and running backs for total awards won, but a wideout has been the choice in three of the last four years. Based on the most recent decade of data, a quarterback who puts up a special campaign would be the leading choice. In the absence of a season for the ages from a QB, the award will most likely go to the most prolific RB or WR.
