- Ben Roethlisberger is the current favorite to win the NFL’s 2020 Comeback Player of the Year Award at +300 odds.
- New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton has the second shortest odds at +400 to win his first career NFL Comeback Player of the Year award.
- There are five quarterbacks in the top eight of the NFL Comeback Player of the Year odds board.
PITTSBURGH – The 2020 NFL season is currently scheduled to go on as planned despite the looming threat of the coronavirus pandemic.
This upcoming NFL season already has one of the most competitive awards races underway, as the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award race has some of the best players in the NFL in contention.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is the favorite to win the Comeback Player of the Year award at +300 odds after missing most of last season with an elbow injury.
With the Steelers defense improving drastically last year the offense is just missing Ben Roethlisberger which could give him one of the strongest cases for the award if Pittsburgh has a successful season.
Players who missed parts of last season due to injury like New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton fill the top of the odds board for the award.
NFL 2020 Comeback Player of the Year Odds:
- Ben Roethlisberger +300
- Cam Newton +400
- Rob Gronkowski +450
- JJ Watt +500
- AJ Green +600
- Nick Foles +600
- Matthew Stafford +650
- Baker Mayfield +750
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford at +650 odds will also have one of the best paths to proving he is the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year, as the Lions will have no choice but to lean on Stafford to carry the offense.
Each of those players won’t have to compete for playing time in their return and can be expected to make an immediate impact on their teams.
Of the players to bet on with the shortest odds to win, Cam Newton has the best path to winning the Comeback Player of the Year award.
Due to his supporting cast and coaching in New England as well as the lack of competition in the AFC East, this creates the perfect concoction of success for Newton’s Comeback Player of the Year Chances.
Why Bettors Should Take the Odds On Cam Newton
Former No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton’s 2019 season was cut short due to a Lisfranc (foot) injury he sustained against the team he now plays for.
While the injury is on the harder side of injuries to recover from the Patriots have a supporting cast that should keep Newton from having to carry the team as he did for many years as a member of the Carolina Panthers.
The New England Patriots will already have one of the best defenses in the NFL when the 2020 season begins and whenever newly signed Cam Newton does take his first snap under center for the team it should allow him to eclipse Ben Roethlisberger on the odds board.
Newton’s +400 odds are well worth the risk now because as the season goes on, they’ll likely get shorter, especially if the Patriots can finish the season with over 10 wins and led the team to a division title.
