Currently, the nationwide sportsbooks I use for this column are not posting in-season odds for Defensive Rookie of the Year or Coach of the Year. So, if you are debating an in-season play on either of those or the other awards discussed in this column, feel free to reach out to me via Twitter @RyanReynNJ or via email [email protected] My offseason study is the foundation for my awards process, and that can be found here.
Once the season starts, the main purpose of this column is to identify decision points on an awards bet. Before certain games there is a decision whether to sell or hold one’s position in an awards bet, just as there are opportunities to buy (or in some cases, buy back). Feel free to reach out via email or Twitter if you’re pondering that type of move as well. Additionally, in Week 8’s Awards column, I bought Patrick Mahomes at +500 at MGM Sportsbook with the expectation that he would be in the lead in the MVP race entering this week. That prediction a month ago is now reality. How I see that situation moving forward is what starts off this week’s column.
