Tim Tebow’s trade from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets in exchange for a 4th and 6th round pick nearly brought down Twitter yesterday and has once again sent shock waves through the NFL. The polarizing quarterback is expected to back up Mark Sanchez who last season set career highs in passing yards (3474) and touchdowns (26) and just recently signed three-year, $40.5 million extension.
Although there will undoubtedly be fans clamoring for Tebow to get the nod behind center, Jets ownership has been vehement that the former USC Trojan is the starter. Many have speculated that Tebow will be utilized mainly in the Wildcat formation as the Jets new offensive coordinator — former Dolphins head coach Tony Sparano — re-vitalized the formation during his tenure with Miami.
So what can we expect from the most popular backup in the league? Bovada has released four different prop bets concerning Tebow.
1) Will he start at least 1 game at QB for the Jets in the 2012 Regular Season? Yes (-150) No (+110)
2) Over/Under 4 Total Rushing Touchdowns: Under (-115) Over (-115)
3) Over/Under 1 Total Passing Touchdowns: Under (-115) Over (-115)
4) Will either Tim Tebow or Mark Sanchez catch a pass in the 2012 Regular Season? Yes (-140) No (Even)
