2017 NFL Regular Season Most Passing Touchdowns Odds
NFL Passing Touchdowns Odds
The rich got richer in the case of the New England Patriots.
Fresh off a Super Bowl championship, the Patriots return with a stronger offense than it had last season when the club defeated the Atlanta Falcons in the final.
That can only be good news for the never-ageing 40-year-old Tom Brady, who has several more weapons to work with heading into the upcoming NFL season.
At this point of Brady’s career, the five-time Super Bowl champion is more concerned with efficiency rather than padding his personal stats. But with scoring machine Rob Gronkowski returning from a season-ending injury and the addition of speedy wide receiver Brandin Cooks to the lineup, Brady may very well come out on top in total passing touchdowns in 2018.
Here’s a look at some of the favorites, with odds courtesy of Bovada.lv.
|2017 Regular Season Most Passing Touchdowns Odds|
Tom Brady (+400)
The two-time NFL most valuable player missed the first four games last season and still managed to finish with 28 passing touchdowns. Brady accomplished that feat without his No. 1 target — tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was injured midway through the season. Throw Julian Edelman, Brandin Cooks along with Chris Hogan into the mix, and Brady will undoubtedly be among the league leaders in passing touchdowns. Brady has accomplished everything possible in the NFL, winning five Super Bowl titles along the way. However, look for him to add to that storybook career in a very big way in 2018.
Aaron Rodgers (+425)
The Green Bay Packers reeled off six straight wins to win the NFC North and advance to the playoffs last season. During that run, Aaron Rodgers was at his absolute greatest, slinging touchdowns and carrying the Packers offense on his shoulders. It was also during that run that Rodgers was able to finish first in TD passes with 40 — two more than second-place Matt Ryan. Tight end Martellus Bennett signed with the club in the off-season, further strengthening Rodgers’ chances of throwing the most touchdown passes in 2018.
Drew Brees (+600)
The New Orleans Saints signed future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson in an effort to take some of the pressure of QB Drew Brees, who led the NFL in passing yards a year ago. The Saints lost their best receiver in Brandin Cooks, who was traded to the New England Patriots in the spring. Despite these changes, Brees has proved the he can still be a valuable quarterback. Watch for many of Brees’ TDs to be short passes out of the back field to Peterson, who is versatile, even at 32 years old.
Matt Ryan (+700)
There’s still a bitter taste in Matt Ryan’s mouth after the star quarterback helped the Atlanta Falcons reach the Super Bowl only to fall short to the Patriots in the final. Ryan finished the 2016-17 campaign second in passing yards (4,944) and touchdown passes (38) en route to being named regular-season most valuable player. Ryan’s No. 1 target Julio Jones has been battling a toe injury but has said he’ll be ready in time for the start of the NFL season.
Ben Roethlisberger (+1200)
Putting your money on an oft-injured quarterback comes with major risks. However, Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers have arguably the most favorable schedule in 2017-18. Big Ben has struggled to stay in the lineup over the last few seasons, but if the Steelers’ QB can stay on the field instead of the sidelines, Pittsburgh is a legitimate favorite to win the Super Bowl outright. Roethlisberger, with two star receivers Antonio Brown and Martavis Bryant to throw the ball to, is a strong candidate to lead all QBs in passing touchdowns and one bettors can put their money on with confidence.Pick Aaron Rodgers (+425) Bovada
