The National Football League has finished drafting the newest crop of talent, and the schedules have been officially announced, so we can begin predicting how the regular season could go. Today, we are going to be discussing a few quarterbacks that had no issue making headlines this offseason. We are going to dive into their passing touchdown totals and which side of the wager we should go on. Remember that these are the consensus odds so depending on the sportsbook that you use, these odds can alter a bit.
Every day is full of incredible sports news, including some breaking news that comes straight out of the left field. Make sure to see what is going on in order to keep track of these bets, as things can seriously affect how these wagers will go.
Tom Brady Over 35.5 Passing Touchdowns (-125)
Tom Brady had an incredible 2021 regular season as he finished with 43 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. As of this writing, he will be without Chris Godwin for a significant chunk of the year as he recovers from a torn ACL, Antonio Brown, and tight end Rob Gronkowski.
They still can have Gronk join the fray but definitely have former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Russell Gage joining the fray.
The skill position players definitely took a hit this offseason, but in year three, with offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and this offense, this team is going to be a pass-heavy offense.
Also, remember that the Falcons and the Panthers have four games against Brady, and he should torch them up to boost his totals during the year.
I still love over 35.5 touchdown passes from Brady here, so go with that.
Matt Ryan Under 25.5 Passing Touchdowns (-110)
Matt Ryan played his entire career as the quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons until they traded the former NFL MVP to the Indianapolis Colts to start their rebuilding process. Last season, Ryan threw for 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions and will have to get acclimated to a brand new offense that loves to hand the ball off to running back Johnathan Taylor, especially in the red zone.
With the Carson Wentz experiment ending poorly for them, I think they are going to ease Ryan into his role and let the running game do most of the work as the field shrinks a little bit as the drive continues.
I do not see Ryan needing to throw for many touchdowns throughout the season, as the franchise made the blueprint last year. Michael Pittman is the big wide receiver there but I expect a low 20s touchdown total out of Ryan here.
Russell Wilson Over 32.5 Passing Touchdowns (-110)
Let Russ Cook has been the motto for a few years in Seattle before he was traded to the Denver Broncos during the offseason. Wilson missed three games last year and still finished with 25 touchdowns to six interceptions.
Denver has a solid wide receiver core with Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, and Jerry Juredy on the outside that can find the end zone and increase their performance with a great quarterback under center.
Wilson has a career 6.2 touchdown percentage, which means he does not have issues finding the end zone throughout the year, and this Broncos defense should be able to get the offense back the ball.
This team has a solid secondary that will force a good amount of turnovers and give Wilson the ball in advantageous positions to just air it out and score the touchdown. As long as Wilson remains healthy, the over 32.5 touchdown passes should easily be reached this season.
These are three of the most interesting quarterbacks dealing with some changes around them as two were traded and the other retired then unretired in the same offseason. This should be a fun wager to keep track of as the skill position players and the quarterback’s histories all play a factor in their total.
Which quarterback touchdown total bet do you believe is easy money?
