2015 NFL Preview: Tim Tebow Prop Bets

On Monday afternoon, Chip Kelly and the Philadelphia Eagles continued their bizarre offseason by signing perhaps the most divisive football player of the century — Tim Tebow. The former Heisman winning quarterback has gone 8-7 ATS in 15 career starts, but has not played in an NFL game since his 2012 campaign with the New York Jets.

Although it’s unknown how the Eagles will utilize Tebow, oddsmakers love to capitalize on the hype surrounding the 27-year old quarterback by offering a litany of prop betting opportunities.

It’s worth noting that many of these prop bets only offer one side, which typically indicates that sportsbooks are looking for action and/or offering a bad price. We would typically suggest avoiding these types of bets unless there are any overriding factors.

Bettors should also be aware that Tebow’s contract is not guaranteed for a single dollar, so there may be “no action” on a number of these props.
