NFL Comeback Player of the Year Odds: Dak Prescott Dominating the Bets, but Joe Burrow Offers Plenty of Value

Before the start of the 2021 season, it was all but guaranteed who the comeback player of the year would be, Dak Prescott. Anyone who even loosely follows football could’ve told you that and he’s still the heavy favorite right now at -294 odds.

Although, it might not be as much of a lock as it once was. Enter, Joe Burrow. As a rookie, Burrow played in just 10 games before his season came to an end due to injury, now through seven weeks of the season, he’s been excellent in his sophomore season.

He has the Bengals at a 5-2 record and he already has 17 touchdown passes on the season to go with a 108.9 rating. Here’s how he compares to Dak in some key categories:

Name G CMP% TD INT Y/A Rating QBR
Joe Burrow 7 68.9% 17 8 9.2 108.9 59.5
Dak Prescott 6 73.1% 16 4 8.4 115.0 57.0

Dak is having the better season, there’s no question about that but if you are looking for some value and are a Burrow believer, well he gives you pretty solid value at +800 odds. In the past week, 73.53 percent of the bets came in on Dak to win the award but in second, it’s Joe Burrow at 7.35%

Name Bets%
Dak Prescott 73.53%
Joe Burrow 7.35%
Carson Wentz 2.94%

Obviously, it’s an uphill climb for him but if Dak Prescott gets himself into the MVP conversation, there’s absolutely a world where Burrow could win this award. Plus, nobody expected this season from the Bengals. They’ve been a fantastic story all year long and it would only be capped off with Burrow getting some love as the Comeback Player Of The Year.

Here’s a look at the top five right now:

Name Odds
Dak Prescott -294
Joe Burrow +800
Jameis Winston +1800
Derwin James +2000
Carson Wentz +2500
