PERUSING THE PLAYERS
Deshaun Watson had a lackluster debut season in Cleveland, but his NFL MVP odds have moved from +3000 to +2500. Despite ranking outside of the top 10 in tickets for NFL MVP, Watson sneaks in at ninth for handle at 3.5%.
Meanwhile, Nick Chubb is generating strong interest for Offensive Player of the Year. Cleveland’s bruiser has OPOY odds of +2200 after first being priced at +2500. With Kareem Hunt no longer in town, Chubb has captured the second-most handle at 13.3%, only surpassed by Jets wideout Garrett Wilson (+2000).
