NFL Week 1 Quarterback Odds Posted

Sam Bradford is the clear betting favorite at the online sportsbooks to be the Week 1 starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles as NFL teams prepare to get their preseason schedules underway over the next week.

At 5Dimes Bradford sits as the -825 favorite on the odds to be the Eagles’ Week 1 starter, after he was acquired in a trade with the St. Louis Rams in the offseason. Bradford tore his ACL for the second time in his career last preseason and missed the entire 2014 campaign, but he’s now reportedly back to 100% health.

The ‘any other Week 1 starter’ is then the +475 underdog on that Eagles prop bet at the sportsbook. Philadelphia enters the preseason with four quarterbacks on its roster, with Mark Sanchez expected to be Bradford’s backup this season while Matt Barkley and Tim Tebow duke it out for the third quarterback job.

5Dimes also has Brian Hoyer as the -180 favorite to be the Kansas City Chiefs’ starting quarterback for Week 1 of the regular season, with Ryan Mallett his chief competition for the job. Josh McCown is set at -475 at the sportsbook to be the Cleveland Browns’ Week 1 starter, with Geno Smith the -975 favorite to be the New York Jets’ Week 1 starter.

And EJ Manuel is then at just +220 odds to be the Buffalo Bills’ starting quarterback in Week 1 of the season, with ‘any other starter’ the -300 favorite on that NFL betting prop at the sportsbook. Reports from Buffalo suggest that Matt Cassel is the frontrunner to be the Bills’ starting quarterback to start the season heading into their exhibition slate.
