For the awards columns this season, I will be using odds from the widely available online sportsbooks at BetMGM, DraftKings, FanDuel, Fox Bet, and PointsBet. The odds listed next to each awards candidate are the best and worst lines available among these five sportsbooks. In this column, I’ll be exploring the Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year markets. Before we get into potential candidates for both awards, I’ll be discussing what we’re looking for in rookie contenders using patterns and trends discussed in my column: NFL Awards: Who Wins and Why.
