NFL Rookie of the Year Odds: Who Are The Offensive, Defensive Favorites?

NFL Rookie of the Year odds ROY
Written by

NFL Rookie of the Year odds currently show one race that has been decided, and another that will go down to the wire. CJ Stroud has gone from -2500 to -10000 to -20000 in consecutive weeks, as the books slam the door shut on additional exposure. On defense though, Jalen Carter has dropped from -250 to -200, with Devon Witherspoon behind him at +300.

NFL Rookie of the Year odds

NFL Rookie of the Year odds are available to bet on now. See NFL Offensive ROY odds and NFL Defensive ROY odds below.

Bijan Robinson and Anthony Richardson were the early betting favorites to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors. Jalen Carter and Will Anderson were the early favorites to win NFL Defensive ROY.

NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year odds

CJ Stroud

As if -10000 wasn’t bad enough, the books felt the need to move CJ Stroud up to -20000 following Week 13. There is no reason to lock up $2000 for months just to win $10, so Stroud is effectively off the board for bettors.

Puka Nacua

Puka Nacua has regained the lead for total yards by a rookie with 1,074, which is 44 more than Bijan Robinson. Puka also closed the touchdown gap on Bijan with his fourth TD of the season, two behind Robinson. If there is an injury to Stroud, Nacua would have a clear path to victory if he continues to catch touchdowns.

Bijan Robinson

Bijan Robinson has had touchdowns in back-to-back weeks and has 3 TDs in his past four games. If only the Falcons had used him this way from the start of the season, he may have had a chance to win this award. If CJ Stroud happens to get injured, Robinson would have the clearest path to OROY-winning production.

Jahmyr Gibbs

Jahmyr Gibbs had a lackluster Week 13 with 60 yards rushing on eight carries and -6 yards receiving. Gibbs is one TD and 132 total yards behind Bijan and seems unlikely to have any chance of winning this award if he continues to trail his fellow rookie RB.

Jordan Addison

Jordan Addison’s odds to win Offensive Player of the Year took a massive hit with the Kirk Cousins injury. Addison racked up seven touchdowns in the first eight weeks of the season but hasn’t had one since. With Justin Jefferson set to return in Week 14, maybe Addison has less attention paid to him by opposing defenses. He is currently tied at seven TDs with Tank Dell, two behind Achane.

Zay Flowers

Zay Flowers caught his second receiving touchdown of the season in Week 12 and added his first rushing TD to continue his impressive rookie season. But despite his successes, there are too many rookie wide receivers having better seasons.

NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year odds

Jalen Carter

After a big game against the Bills on Sunday Night Football, Jalen Carter showed again why he’s been the prohibitive favorite to win Defensive Rookie of the Year for months now. According to PFF, his pass rush win rate is 19%, best among all rookies since they started their grading system in 2006. Given his high-profile pedigree and performance, it will be hard to overtake Carter on the DROY odds board.

Devon Witherspoon

Witherspoon has been graded out as not only the best cornerback among rookies but the best corner in the game on certain parts of the internet. This feels eerily similar to the Sauce Gardner situation last year. And once everyone caught on to how truly lock-down Sauce was, his odds went from plus to heavy minus in a hurry.

Will Anderson

Will Anderson notched his third sack of the year in Week 12 as he slowly creeps up toward the top of the board. Anderson also gained the lead for QB pressures with 38, is first in hurries at 25, and tied for first with 10 QB hits. With six games left to play, there is still time for Anderson to stake his claim for Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Byron Young

Byron Young leads all rookies in sacks (5), is second in QB pressures, and is tied for the lead in forced fumbles at two with Jalen Carter. Pairing a Byron Young ticket to a Devon Witherspoon bet is how I’m playing the Defensive Rookie of the Year odds board at the moment.

NFL Offensive ROY odds: What happened last year?

The NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year race was as unpredictable as ever last year. The eventual winner Garrett Wilson was +1600 on September 6 and was as high as +3500 on November 22. Up until that point, Breece Hall looked to be a runaway favorite for the award before tearing his ACL. Enter Kenneth Walker III who went from +1500 on October 11 to -130 on November 11. After a 95 yard, 2 TD performance on November 27, Wilson’s odds cratered from +3500 to +600. And while he was as low as -220 on December 20, Wilson finished the season at +200 while Walker was the favorite at -130.

NFL Defensive Rookie of the year odds: What happened last year?

The NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year race would have been a great one, if not for Sauce Gardner’s dominant season as a true shut-down corner. And while Gardner’s odds steadily grew to -500 by the beginning of December, he was as high as +2500 on October 4. Aidan Hutchinson opened as the favorite, and despite his incredible rookie season that featured 9.5 sacks and 3 INTs, there was seemingly nothing he could do to overcome Sauce.
