Sports betting fans are placing action on Ben Roethlisberger, Alex Smith, Tom Brady, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Aaron Rodgers.
With top veteran QB’s heading towards the twilight of their careers, Super Bowl betting odds around the league are sure to be affected.
Next QB To Retire
Most action is being placed on Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, as there were earlier rumors of him retiring before signing a new contract with the team.
Next QB To Retire?
- Ben Roethlisberger -105
- Alex Smith +125
- Tom Brady +1000
- Ryan Fitzpatrick +1400
- Aaron Rodgers +2500
Ben Roethlisberger is coming off a strong regular NFL season where he led the Steelers to a 12-4 record, winning 11 games to start the season before seeing a loss. Unfortunately, the team, specifically Big Ben, flamed out in their Wild Card game against the Cleveland Browns.
Big Ben threw four interceptions in this game, which led fans to believe that the QB was now too old to be consistent enough to win a Super Bowl.
Due to his playoff performance, many speculated if the Steelers QB would return, but ultimately a deal was made, and Roethlisberger signed a one-year contract to remain with the Steelers.

"It is my greatest honor to be a Pittsburgh Steeler and give my all for this organization," said Roethlisberger. "I am grateful to be at this stage of my career and more than happy to adjust my contract in a way that best helps the team to address other players who are so vital to our success. I love this game and love to compete, and I believe in this team and my ability to deliver when called upon. It all starts with great preparation and I am ready to go."
With this going on his 18th season and it only being a one-year contract, sports betting fans believe this is Big Ben’s final run with the team. This explains why so much action is being placed on the 38-year-old veteran.
Underdog betting fans should pay close attention to the longshot odds for both Alex Smith as he is more likely to be retiring soon than other veterans on this list.
Tom Brady is locked into his contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers through 2022, Ryan Fitzpatrick recently signed a two-year deal with the Washington Football Team, and Aaron Rodgers is in the middle of a four-year contract with the Green Bay Packers.
In addition, Brady is coming off of winning a Super Bowl MVP and Rodgers is now the reigning NFL MVP, showing no signs of slowing down for either veteran QB.
While Smith did manage to win comeback player of the year for his performance on the Football Team during the 2020 season, he is currently a free agent and has not signed to any team.
The fact that the other players are at least on contracts makes Smith a wise choice for NFL betting fans.
