NFL Odds: Adam Thielen Most Back To Be Receiving Yards Leader
With under a week until the NFL season begins bettors are flocking our NFL markets and making their bets for the upcoming season.
Surprisingly though, it's not the New Orleans Saints star who has taken the most bets over the past week, it's actually Adam Thielen of the Minnesota Vikings.
Thielen only manged 418 yards last season as he battled with injury, however he did manage to accumulate 1,373 yards in 2018, but it's still surprising to see him so high up the list. Although at a price of +3300 it's clear to see that some feel he still offers value.
Behind Thielen the next two most popular bets are Julio Jones and Michael Thomas, who are both 2nd and 1st in the betting respectively. Thomas is +500 to repeat last year's success with Julio Jones at +900, the large price gap displaying the weight of expectations on Thomas.
Next up is Brandin Cooks, who at +6600 is a long shot, but again offers real value replacing DeAndre Hopkins as the Houston Texans #1 WR.
At +9000, Robert Woods of the LA Rams is an even longer shot but he's the fifth most popular in the betting.
Juju Smith-Schuster, +2900, follows Woods and many are expecting a bounceback year, for both Juju and the Pittsburgh Steelers who were decimated by injuries in 2019.
The Colts' TY Hilton, at +2800 and Tyreek Hill, +1600, round out the most popular bets, in what is a surprising list, most notable for the omissions of Chris Godwin and Devante Adams, 3rd and 4th in the betting market.
Michael Thomas +500
Julio Jones +900
Chris Godwin +1400
Davante Adams +1400
Mike Evans +1600
Tyreek Hill +1600
