Top contenders for most passing yards

Some seasons, the overall passing leader is a bit of a surprise. More frequently, though, the winner comes from a pool of at least somewhat well-known names. Here is our list of five contenders for most passing yards:

  • Joe Burrow: The Cincinnati signal caller has kept himself at the top of the passing leaders chart in 2022 throughout the majority of the season. In the first half of the schedule, he was throwing for nearly 70 percent completions and had over 2,300 yards. He’s not looking to slow down, either.
  • Tom Brady: When you’re the GOAT, you get on the list. Simple as that. Brady seems to be almost ageless at times. He just keeps coming back for more every season. His production stays lofty, his expectations and goals never waiver and he has a knack for finding players down the field. Brady has the ability to win the passing yards race every year he’s in the NFL — and that might be forever at this point.
  • Josh Allen: Remember when the pundits said Buffalo was making a mistake drafting Josh Allen? Yeah, they sure are quiet these days. In the first half of the 2022 season, Allen was one of the top passing QBs in the league. He had over 2,100 yards rushing and already picked up 19 passing touchdowns.
  • Justin Herbert: Sure, he’s young, but he’s in the conversation thanks to a ton of talent and a young but skilled group of receivers. Herbert has been tearing things up since he came into the NFL, and there’s no reason to believe that is going to change.
  • Patrick Mahomes: Over 2,100 yards passing over the first eight games of the 2022 season has kept Mahomes in the discussion about potentially taking the top passing yard position when all is said and done. Does he have the weapons? If you’re looking at pure QB ability and the nerve to throw it into some very tight spots, then, yes, Mahomes has everything he needs.

Betting on passing yards over/under

Wagering on the quarterback who is going to end up with the most passing yards throughout the regular season is not the only way you can get in on the action while focusing on the aerial attack.

Passing yard totals work just like any other totals bet, also known as over/unders. A sportsbook will list a total number of yards that it anticipates a quarterback throwing for throughout the season. You can then bet on whether that quarterback will end up going over or under the sportsbook’s line.

For example, if Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow had a line of 4,200.5 yards for the season, and he finished with 4,197, then those who bet on the under would win.

Other NFL futures bets

There are quite a few options when it comes to betting on the NFL season. Depending on the sportsbook you are using, you could have quite a few props and futures bets to choose from. Here are a few of the most popular that you’ll likely come across at Ohio sportsbooks:

  • NFL MVP odds: Just like it sounds, this is a futures bet on which player will win the NFL’s most valuable player award at the end of the season. Take note that this is not the Super Bowl MVP, but the award for regular season accomplishments.
  • Most passing touchdowns: Much like the most passing yards, this futures bet is all about quarterbacks. Which one do you think will throw for the most touchdowns?
  • Most rushing yards: You have to give running backs some love, too. This bet means trying to figure out which RB is going to put up the most mileage by season’s end.
  • Most receiving yards: Quarterbacks can’t get those impressive numbers without receivers. Many books will offer futures bets on which receiver will end up with the most yards on the year.

Those are just a sampling of the NFL prop betting odds you are going to encounter at Ohio sportsbooks. From single-game bets to season-long futures to the latest Super Bowl odds, the NFL is the most popular sport to wager on, which means sportsbooks do all they can to keep that part of their customer base happy with an impressive array of options.
