Rarely will you see a sportsbook provide betting odds on an NFL quarterback who will not only be the frontrunner for Most Valuable Player but also take the league lead in interceptions thrown.
In this case, we’re going with the latter and betting on Josh Allen, the quarterback for the Buffalo Bills, to miss out on the MVP title yet finish at the top of the turnover charts.
His odds of leading the NFL in interceptions thrown are 12/1 (7.7% indicated likelihood), which places him third behind Green Bay Packers Jordan Love and Houston Texans rookie CJ Stroud.
Josh Allen was hailed as a fantastic athlete with a rocket arm when he first entered the NFL in 2018, but his throwing accuracy was criticized for being subpar.
I’m curious how much has changed in his five years as Buffalo’s starting quarterback.
In 77 games throughout his career, he has thrown 60 interceptions (78%) and double-digit interceptions in four of his five seasons.
Although the Bills have consistently ranked among the top three teams in the league in terms of points scored per game over the past two seasons, Allen’s completion percentage has dropped each time, and in 32 games, he has thrown 29 interceptions.
