NFL Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year

by WagerHome Blog on May 23, 2023

We’ve now all had a chance to see the top rookies from the 2023 NFL Draft all wear their new uniforms and attend rookie mini-camp. And while there isn’t a whole lot to be gleaned from how they play when wearing shorts, the excitement is still very real. Which of these young quarterbacks is most likely to emerge as a star, and which of the defensive studs is going to make the biggest first-year impact.

Offensive Rookie of the Year Favorites

Bijan Robinson (+250)
Bryce Young (+500)
Anthony Richardson (+600)
C.J. Stroud (+750)
Jaxson Smith-Njigba (+800)
Jahmyr Gibbs (+900)

Bijan Robinson is a great talent, and he’s with a team that is not only committed to the running game, they are already good at it. The Falcons ability to run the ball with lesser running backs is only going to lead to more touches for Robinson, and better production, and that’s why he is the favorite.


Bryce Young was the first player selected last month, and he has a former quarterback as a head coach. While the ceiling on Anthony Richardson is considered to be higher because of his amazing athleticism, Young is a better bet to succeed right away.


The last two NFL Rookies of the Year were wide receivers, and not only is Jaxson Smith-Njigba the best wideout of this class, with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett on his outsides, he’s primed to have a big year.

Defensive Rookie of the Year Favorites

Will Anderson (+350)
Jalen Carter (+650)
Tyree Wilson (+800)
Devon Witherspoon (+900)
Christian Gonzalez (+950)

Everyone expects great things from Alabama EDGE Will Anderson. Obviously, the Texans do, considering what they paid to trade up for him. He is going to be a star, and we might see that from the first week of the season.

Jalen Carter out of Georgia is yet another great Bulldog defensive lineman going to the Philadelphia Eagles great defensive line. And if he can help Philly get back to the Super Bowl, he is sure to get Rookie of the Year attention.

From 1999 to 2014 we didn’t have a cornerback win the award. Now it’s happened three times in the last nine years, with Sauce Gardner taking how DROY honors last year for the Jets. The two corners with the biggest opportunities this season are Devon Witherspoon, now with the Seahawks, and Christian Gonzalez, who was drafted by the Patriots.

Best Super Bowl LVII Bets

by WagerHome Blog on February 8, 2023

If you have been placing bets all season long on the NFL, you can’t wait until Super Bowl Sunday. But even if you’ve only dabbled in NFL betting, or are a complete novice to the pastime, the Super Bowl is an attractive betting event.

An estimated 50 million Americans will place wagers on the Super Bowl, putting over $16 billion on the line. It’s huge business, it’s an unofficial national holiday, it’s the biggest winter party in the U.S.A., and you need to get prepared.

Total Points

The 1.5-point spread that favors the Eagles doesn’t come with any clear patterns, so for the business of naming the “best bets” we’re going to avoid that. But when it comes to a totals bet, which currently has a line of 50.5, we have history to look at.

In each of the last four Super Bowls it is the UNDER that has won this bet. And in two of those the UNDER won by big numbers.

We love offensive football, and the betting public would prefer to root for scoring, as opposed to rooting against it. So they tend to like the OVER. But as you can see from recent history, it’s not always the best way to go.

Coin Toss

If you are planning to bet on the result of the coin toss – heads or tails – there is of course a 50% chance you will win your bet. But if you are betting on the winner of the game based on the winner of the coin toss, buyer beware. Each of the last eight teams to win the coin toss have gone on to lose the game.

This bizarre and inexplicable streak began when the Seahawks won the coin toss but lost to the Patriots, and it extends through last year’s game where the toss was won by the Bengals, but the game was won by the Rams.

Eagles First Half Points

Right now the Eagles first half over/under is 12.5 points. Considering that they averaged a league-best 18.2 points in the first half during the regular season, and have scored 28 and 21 first-half points in the postseason, this is an excellent bet to place.

Gatorade Shower

The final bet of the night takes place after the game is over – the color of the Gatorade shower the winning coach takes as the team celebrates its Super Bowl championship. In Super Bowl LIV the Chiefs showered Andy Reid in orange, which is paying +250 this season.

Super Bowl

When the Eagles won in Super Bowl LII, the color of the Gatorade was yellow, which is paying +150.

Pay Per Head Software

The clock is ticking on NFL betting. If you are an independent bookmaker there is still time to join forces with a pay per head software provider in time for the Super Bowl, but you have to act now. With, you get a fully customizable website, access to their huge menu of sports and betting options – like Super Bowl props – plus EZ live betting.

The Super Bowl Betting Extravaganza

by WagerHome Blog on February 2, 2023

For football fans, and fans of football betting, there is no bigger day on the calendar than Super Bowl Sunday. It is a day-long celebration of the NFL season, and more than 40 million Americans are expected to supplement that celebration by putting money down on the game.

Sports betting has never been more popular, the NFL has never been more popular, and marrying the two is a match made in prop betting heaven.

The Super Bowl doesn’t kick off until February 12, but you can start making your prop bets right now.

Cross-Sport Parlay Proposition Bets

Some of the most interesting and engaging bets offered on the Super Bowl are combination bets that include Super Bowl props with props from other sports that weekend. One bet being offered is for Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco to go over 69.5 yards rushing, and for the Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo to go over 29.5 points.

There are also bets that tie in Patrick Mahomes’ passing totals to the winner of the Phoenix Open, taking place on the other side of Phoenix from the Super Bowl.

In fact, you don’t even have to wait until next weekend for these cross-sport parlays to begin. You combine events this weekend, like the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am or this Saturday’s UFC event, with propositions from the Super Bowl.

Head-to-Head Prop Bets

Another type of prop that shows up during the Super Bowl that you don’t see very often during the regular season are head-to-head props. Similar to what you can find with golf bets and auto racing bets, these are bets between two players, and you wager on which will end the game with the most yards.

They also have defensive head-to-head props that involve tackles. There is no over/under on the bet. If the running back you wagered on finishes with just 11 yards, you will still win if his head-to-head opponent only gets 10 yards.

Super Bowl Exotic Props

super bowl

The name “exotic prop” conjures up images of a tropical island proposition bet. What is meant by exotic is props that don’t actually involve the game. Bets on the coin toss (heads/tails), the over/under on the length of the National Anthem, and the color of the Gatorade dumped on the winning head coach.

You can bet on which beer commercial will air first, which car commercial is first, and which celebrities we will see in the crowd. And of course you can place a wager on who the MVP of the game thanks first, mom or dad.

Pay Per Head Software

If you are an independent bookmaker, don’t leave money on the table during the Super Bowl. If ever there was a week to join forces with a top pay per head software provider, this is it.

NFL Awards Biggest Potential Wins

by WagerHome Blog on January 31, 2023

As the NFL takes a week off to get ready for the Super Bowl, let’s check in on their end-of-season awards, and which bets are most likely to cash in.

Most Valuable Player

The biggest NFL award of the night, and heading into this final week of betting, there isn’t a whole lot of doubt that Patrick Mahomes is going to win. He was paying +800 back in August, and the season’s leader in yards and touchdowns is now paying just -750.

Jalen Hurts was voted 2nd NFL Team All-Pro, making him the only other realistic contender, and he’s paying a distant +1500.

Offensive Player of the Year

Often seen as the award for the best offensive player who isn’t a quarterback, there are two non-quarterbacks on the list. Tyreek Hill was a favorite early in the season, but he’s at +1400 today. Justin Jefferson began the season paying +2000, and now he is the huge favorite at -800.

Defensive Player of the Year


These are regular season awards, so the big game from Chris Jones in the AFC Championship Game does not matter. He is one of the three finalists, but a long shot at +10000.

The favorite is Nick Bosa of the 49ers, going from +1200 in the preseason to -1100 today. Preseason favorite Micah Parson still has a chance at +600. When the season kicked off he was paying +900.

Offensive Rookie of the Year

This is one of the most interesting awards of the year, with three finalists that are all worthy candidates. It comes down to what you think the award means. Does it go to the best player all season long, or the player with the biggest impact?

If it’s the latter then you like Brock Purdy at +700. The 49ers quarterback wasn’t even on the betting boards in August. If you favor a full season of contributions, it’s either Garrett Wilson at -200 or Kenneth Walker at +450.

Defensive Rookie of the Year

Aidan Hutchinson of the Lions was the preseason favorite at +500, and he had a very good second half to the season to keep his name in the conversation. But Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner is the first rookie corner to be 1st Team All-Pro in 41 years, and at -1200 he is the runaway favorite. He was paying +1000 when the season began.

Coach of the Year

The NFL favorite is Nick Sirianni at -175, although the Eagles have a loaded roster and were picked to win the NFC by a lot of pundits. Kyle Shanahan is at +300, and deservedly so after the musical chairs he had to play at NFL quarterback. Doug Pederson, from No. 1 draft pick to division champion in just one year, is paying +900.

Pay Per Head Software

There is still time to bet on most of these awards, and then of course Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner. And if you are an independent bookmaker, don’t head into the big game without the aid of a big pay per head software provider.
