CeeDee Lamb Tops Rookie Wide Receiver Betting Odds For 2020

  • CeeDee Lamb has odds of -150 to have at least 850 receiving yards.
  • Jerry Jeudy is projected with the highest rookie WR over-under at 900 yards.
  • CeeDee Lamb may be in the best situation, as his NFL ROY odds top all WRs at +1400.

LAS VEGAS – With six wide receivers being drafted in the first round two weeks ago, the battle for supremacy has already begun.

Henry Ruggs III gets the nod for being the first receiver taken in the NFL Draft of the group – at 12 to the Las Vegas Raiders – but Jerry Jeudy and CeeDee Lamb were only three and five picks behind Ruggs. Joining the Denver Broncos and Dallas Cowboys, respectively, getting anywhere from 800-900 yards is expected from these three.

The odds favor Jeudy to have the most productive season. Players like Jalen Reagor (21 to the Philadelphia Eagles) and Justin Jefferson (22 to the Minnesota Vikings) also sit on the oddsboard with their own totals. Meanwhile, Brandon Aiyuk, despite being a first-round draft pick, doesn’t even find himself with betting odds to lead rookies in receiving yards.

Over/Under Total Yards For First Round Wide Receivers

  • Jeudy 900 Under (-130) Over (-110)
  • Lamb 850 Over (-150) Under (+110)
  • Ruggs III 800 Over (-140) Under (+100)
  • Jefferson 750 Over (-120) Under (-120)
  • Reagor 700 Over (-120) Under (-120)

Lamb seems to be the favorite to lead the entire pack, as he sits seventh (+1400) to win the NFL rookie of the year. Sitting with heavy juice, in a Cowboys offense that led the league in total yards and was second in passing yards, Lamb’s -150 may be expensive but likely worth the bait.

Ruggs III is also seeing heavy action on his total of 800 yards. In Las Vegas, one has to believe Jon Gruden has many ideas on how to use Ruggs to help the Raiders’ offense.

Still, by having a Percy Harvin-like rookie season (60 catches for 790 yards and 6 TDs with Vikings in 2009), Ruggs would still fall short of this total, making the even odds on the under a better play.

Jefferson doesn’t have to be Sammy White (51 catches for 906 yards and 10 TDs with Vikings in ’76) but he is in a similar position as Jalen Reagor. With standard odds, taking the over seems more plausible, as their teams’ offensive abilities could make it easy to hit this mark.

Also, with the success of these two franchises, perhaps Jefferson or Reagor is all their team needs to win the Super Bowl.
