2020 Betting Odds For NFL Total Passing Yards Props
Betting any quarterback props prove to be some of the most popular options heading into a new NFL season. Top-rated online sportsbooks such as MyBookie tend to offer multiple ways to cash in on these types of bets.
The most basic betting prop for quarterbacks is betting on which gunslinger will throw for the most yards in the regular season. My Bookie has also set prop bet odds for the OVER/UNDER on individual quarterback performances. These normally cover total yards, touchdowns and interceptions.
What Are The Best Bets For Betting 2020 NFL Total Passing Yard Props?
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been the center of attention this offseason for any number of reasons. He is coming off a Super Bowl MVP performance for the Kansas City Chiefs. This means that the bar has been raised about as high as it can go for 2020.
Heading into his fourth season in the NFL, Mahomes is a +400 favorite to top the list in total passing yards. The OVER/UNDER on his total has been set at 4699.5 passing yards. The betting odds slightly favor the OVER at -125. The odds for the UNDER are set at -115.
Through 14 starts last season, Mahomes was 10th on the final list with 4,031 total passing yards. The season before he was named league MVP. That is when he threw for 5,097 yards as Kansas City’s starter for all 16 regular season games. This adds some solid value to the OVER in this prop.
Online NFL Betting Odds For The OVER/UNDER
Second on the list to pass for the most yards in the 2020 regular season is Drew Brees at +750 odds. The betting odds on an OVER/UNDER total of 4000.5 passing yards are set at -120 for either side.
The long-time New Orleans veteran is no stranger to NFL passing titles. Over the course of his future Hall of Fame career, he has surpassed 5,000 passing yards in five different seasons. His best gunslinging days appear to be in the rear view mirror.
The last time Brees played a full 16 games was in 2017 and he threw for 4,334 yards. Last year, that total dropped to 2,979 through 11 starts. At 41-years old, health becomes a major issue. It is also reason enough to stay UNDER on this prop.
Atlanta Falcons’ starting quarterback Matt Ryan is consistently near the top of the list for total passing yards. My Bookie has him listed as a +800 third-favorite heading into this season.
The total for his projected passing yards has been set at 4550.5. The betting odds are set at -120 for the OVER and the UNDER.
Ryan was fifth on last year’s list with 4,466 total passing yards. Going back to the 2011 season, he has thrown for at least 4000 yards in each of those nine campaigns. Even more impressive is the fact that he has missed three starts over the course of his 12-year NFL career. This adds even more value to the OVER in this prop.
A few more prominent QB’s on the betting list for most passing yards are:
- Tom Brady +800
- Dak Prescott +900
- Aaron Rodgers +1000
