With the year 2023 NFL The schedule is no longer a secret, America’s favorite sports betting itch is ready to be scratched.
I’m not the kind of person looking to launch a bet in the middle of May on the season opener Penn Kansas City Chiefs (-6.5, O/U 53.5) and Detroit Lions. If anything, I’ll wait patiently and let the crowd build up the total over the next few months so I can bet right under when the game kicks off.
However, I did pop Three future bets after NFL DraftAnd there’s another one that’s been on my mind for a few weeks – Justin Herbert For NFL MVP.
the Los Angeles Chargers Quarterback already gets a lot of respect from bookmakers across the country. FOX Bet and FanDuel Sportsbook deal with Herbert at +900 ($100 wins you $900), just one notch below Josh AllenAnd Joe Burrow And Patrick Mahomes. These three stars are all listed at +700.
For more context, Herbert has lower MVP odds than Jalen HurtsAnd Lamar JacksonAnd Aaron RodgersAnd Trevor Lawrence And Duck Prescott.

Kevin Burkhardt and Erin Andrews have announced two big games with FOX NFL this season.
“There aren’t many quarterbacks with more guns on all fronts than Herbert,” said one pro bet. FOX Sports. “Austin Eckler She is one of the best pass catchers from the backfield and receivers Mike Williams And Keenan Allen Dangerous when you’re healthy. And they recruited that rookie who was a beast into TCU.
“Herbert may not have an elite receiver, but he does have three real good receivers.”
This third recipient is a novice Quentin Johnston, wide with size, speed and tons of skill. He measures 6ft 4in and is under 210lbs biscuit with the ability to run vertical routes with the best of it.
last year in TCUJohnston caught 60 passes for 1,069 yards.
Los Angeles also hired Kellen Moore to run its offense, another sign that Herbert should have more opportunities to expand the field. Explosive plays were Moore’s calling card in Dallas, as Cowboys He averaged nearly 30 points per game over the past four seasons.
Herbert and Moore can be quite the killer combination, and it’s hard to imagine the 25-year-old Herbert throwing a lot less than he did last season when he attempted 699 passes.
The other angle that works for Herbert is the loaded AFC.
You already know Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are going to score points and pick up the pace, and the odds are good about that. Russell Wilson He’s going to have a much better season with Sean Payton driving Denver Broncos a crime. until the Las Vegas Raiders with Jimmy Garoppolo It can have an effective sneaky attack.
If this section lives up to its offensive potential, we’re talking shoot after shootout after shootout. This bodes well for the midfielders.
Two years ago, Herbert threw for 5,000 yards and 38 touchdowns with conservative play caller Joe Lombardi running the show.
Now he has more weapons heading into 2023 — not to mention two first-round picks on the offensive line — and it’s very likely he’ll take it one step further with Moore planning things out.
Now let’s begin Justin Herbert’s MVP campaign.
He chooses: Justin Herbert wins MVP (+900 at FOX Bet)
