The entire world watched Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes light up the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football.
Don’t you worry, bookmakers were paying close attention too.
Five touchdowns and 385 passing yards later and Mahomes is getting closer to being the NFL MVP favorite. The reigning Super Bowl MVP led an offensive onslaught as the Chiefs clobbered the Ravens 34-20. He’s thrown 9 touchdowns so far with no interceptions and has completed 68 percent of his passes on an undefeated team.
PointsBet Sportsbook dropped Mahomes’ odds from +500 to +350 after the Week 3 slate. The only player with better odds is Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who is favored at +220.
Undefeated Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers dropped a smidge from +800 to +700. Lamar Jackson went the other way from +500 to +1050 after an uneasy performance on national television.
Josh Allen is undoubtedly the biggest riser up from +3000 to +1500. Allen has quietly put together a very impressive three-game stretch with 12 total touchdowns for undefeated Buffalo. Yours truly actually bit the Allen apple at 30-to-1 before the Rams game. Lucky me.
It’s extremely important to peg the right player before his next big performance. That’s easier said than done, but these are extremely fluid markets. Just ask Lamar Jackson bettors. Their +500 tickets from last week are way less valuable today with the new price at +1050.
All that said, if Jackson tears up the Football Team for four touchdowns this weekend, odds are good that price will go right back the other way.
That’s life in this racket.
Other big risers are Dak Prescott (+1800), Tom Brady (+2500), Cam Newton (+3000). Players that have seen their stock go the other way are Deshaun Watson (+5000), Drew Brees (+6000), Carson Wentz (+9000) and Matt Ryan (+9000).
