The First NFL Betting Props. Who Will Be The First Head Coach Fired?
The head coach at the top of the list is the New York Jets’ Adam Gase. His odds to lose his job first lead the way at +150.
The Hottest NFL Hot Seat
The Jets’ 0-2 start is just part of the problem. The reason he is the favorite goes deeper than that. New York turned to Gase ahead of the 2019 season. He led his team to a respectable 7-9 record without all that much talent on the roster.
His current seat is so hot because of a few questionable decisions in those first two games. It does not help that the Jets have been outscored 58-30 in losses to Buffalo and San Francisco. Ownership has to be concerned with him losing his entire team so early in the season.
Down and Out in Detroit
Matt Patricia built an incredible reputation as an offense coordinator for New England. It also helps to have Bill Belichick as your mentor. Two loses into the 2020 season and he is second on the list to be fired first at +200.
With last Sunday’s ugly 42-21 loss to the rival Green Bay Packers, there is some solid value in those odds. Not every great coordinator has what it takes to be a great head coach.
Detroit has now lost its last 11 games dating back to his inaugural season as head coach. It might make more sense to pull the plug sooner than later. This would give the Lions a chance to regroup with plenty of games left to play.

Hotlanta Just Got Hotter
Dan Quinn has been the head coach in Atlanta the previous five years. His tenure includes a trip to the Super Bowl in 2016. This tenure appears to be in jeopardy as a +250 third favorite to be fired first.
Sunday’s wild 40-39 loss to Dallas could be one of the reasons why. The Falcons took a 29-10 lead into halftime. They lost on a late onside kick and Cowboys’ field goal late in the fourth quarter.
Quinn is taking most of the heat for this loss. First, his team blew a large lead. Second, his special teams botched the onside kick coverage to seal the deal. The money in the bank from the coach’s earlier success is quickly being spent.
