Which Quarterback Will be Sacked the Most in 2017?
The prop we’ve all been waiting for…okay, not really. I can’t imagine too many people will be betting on this, but let’s take a look at the list anyway.
Andrew Luck, the man who will say, “Nice hit man,” to the players who sack him, tops the list at +550. He was sacked 41 times last season, one behind the league leader Tyrod Taylor. Maybe if he wasn’t so friendly to the other team’s defense he would be further down the list.
At +800, Russell Wilson is surprisingly high. Although he was tied with Luck for second in the league last season, he was dealing with an ankle injury for much of the year that limited his mobility. Since that shouldn’t translate over to this year, Wilson is one name that I would certainly avoid if I were to bet on this prop.
Blake Bortles, who led the league in both 2014 and 2015, can be found at +1600. Perhaps he can return to his prime and put up another “get sacked over 50 times” season. He’s also towards the top of the interception leader odds list…not a great combo.
At the very bottom of the list is Tom Brady. Brady was sacked just 15 times in 12 games last season (puts him on pace for 20 in a full season for any bozos out there) thanks to improved offensive line play. Long live the GOAT!
