Alex Smith has better odds to lead the NFL in passing than Deshaun Watson

As you would expect Alex Smith is way down on the list of quarterbacks to lead the league in passing this year. Bovada released the odds on which quarterback will lead the NFL in passing yards and just one quarterback has longer odds than the Chiefs QB and that is the Texans QB, Deshaun Watson.

The top of the list is more interesting. Who will actually lead the league in passing? Drew Brees is probably the smartest bet each year. Tom Brady will probably have another incredible year so I couldn’t fault you for picking him either. Derek Carr? Nah. He hasn’t hit 4,000 yards in his career yet. I’m surprised he’s this on the list.

Matthew Stafford is pretty darn low and so is Kirk Cousins. I wouldn’t be stunned to see either of them finish with the most passing yards.

Here’s the list via Bovada...
