After three weeks of NFL action, sports bettors are eager to guess which quarterback will be benched next. In Week 3, fans saw the mid-game benching of Chicago Bears bust Mitchell Trubisky for Nick Foles. Will Week 4 lead to more quarterbacks being benched?
Sports Betting gives us the latest odds regarding the next quarterback who might be benched moving forward this season. There’s certainly some surprises on the list.
NFL odds suggest a quarterback change
Sam Darnold, New York Jets (3-1 odds)
Off to an 0-3 start, it’s not surprising to see NFL odds pointing to a change at quarterback for the New York Jets. The major issue there is, who takes over? Is Joe Flacco healthy enough? Darnold is the most likely to see the bench according to prop bets available. That’s not a surprise given he threw two interceptions that were returned for touchdowns last week.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Miami Dolphins (4-1 odds)
This is the one that makes some sense on the surface, knowing who the backup is. However, it could be a while before rookie Tua Tagovailoa sees the field after Ryan Fitzpatrick’s Week 3 performance in a win over the Jaguars. I wouldn’t expect a sudden short leash in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks. It’s also important to note that Tagovailoa missed practice on Wednesday with an illness.
