2016 NFL Starting Quarterback Odds

The NFL preseason gets underway on Thursday and the regular season kicks off in less than one month. Coaches and general managers still need to trim their rosters down to 53 players, and many teams are still trying to determine which quarterback will start their Week 1 game.


On Thursday evening, Bookmaker.eu opened odds for three of the league’s most competitive quarterback battles. The defending champion Broncos have an intriguing three-man race, and fans may be surprised to see that rookie Paxton Lynch (+110) was installing as the favorite to start the season opener against the Panthers. Those odds changed dramatically when they were updated on Tuesday morning.

Denver Broncos

Player Aug 11 Aug 9 Aug 5
Mark Sanchez -150 +122 +190
Trevor Siemian +200 +304 +285
Paxton Lynch +490 +170 +115

Los Angeles Rams

Player Aug 11 Aug 9 Aug 5
Jared Goff -220 -320 -1150
Case Keenum +170 +240 +625

San Francisco 49ers

Player Aug 11 Aug 9 Aug 5
Blaine Gabbert -130 +141 +140
Colin Kaepernick +105 -175 -180

Personally, I think that there’s tremendous value on Blaine Gabbert (+141) to be the Week 1 starter for the 49ers. Although Kaepernick is being paid like a franchise quarterback, the two players have been splitting snaps throughout training camp. Last season Gabbert had a higher completion percentage and QB rating than Kaepernick, which makes him an excellent value at plus money.
