After 17 weeks of NFL regular season action, the postseason is finally here with Super Wild Card Weekend beginning on Saturday. There will be a total of six wildcard games across two days that will feature some of the league’s best quarterbacks. However, we cannot forget the quarterbacks that we’ll see in the divisional round, who are also competing for the league MVP award.
DraftKings Sportsbook put together odds on which quarterback will pass for the most yards during the 2021 NFL Playoffs. If you think the Chiefs or Packers will get upset on their way to the Super Bowl, you might want to stay away considering they already don’t get a Wild Card game to pad their stats.
As of right now, Patrick Mahomes has the best odds (+225) to lead the playoffs with the most passing yards. He is third in betting handle, with 21% of the money and 17% of the bets. Josh Allen (+350) leads the way in handle with 28%, to go along with 23% of bets. Aaron Rodgers (+650) has the largest percentage of bets (30%) and is second with 22% of handle. The rest of the top five most bet include Tom Brady (+500) at 15% of handle and 9% of bets and Ryan Tannehill (+5000) with 5% of handle and 7% of bets.
Looking at the top five most bet, the only other quarterback I’d consider is Seahawks QB Russell Wilson. Wilson’s odds currently is +600, which is behind Brady and Drew Brees (not listed, +500). Seattle’s first round matchup is tough as they are going up against the Rams.
However, if Seattle can get past the Rams, then I like Wilson being able to throw it around to wide receivers D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. Other than that, I like the other quarterback choices but could easily see Allen surpassing Rodgers or Mahomes because he will have an extra game under his belt. Also, the Bills do not have a consistent running game.
