The NFL honors one person every season with the Coach of the Yr award.
On the betting front, one surprising name is getting a ton of betting motion to win the COY.
Could this yr’s winner be a coach who survived not winning a game in the primary 11 weeks last season? Some bettors sure hope so.
Here’s all the things you have to know concerning the odds for NFL Coach of the Yr (odds via FOX Bet). For more NFL odds, try the title odds for the upcoming season at FOX Bet.
Yes, you read that tweet right, bettors are backing coach Dan Campbell — who coached his team to a few victories last season — to win the award.
A lot so, that his odds have shortened from 60-1 all the way in which right down to 25-1 at Caesars Sportsbook.
The Detroit Lions began 0-10-1 last season en path to a 3-13-1 record under the first-year coach. An 0-10-1 start often means the coach won’t finish that campaign, let alone return for one more season, yet Campbell is currently the eighth betting favorite at FOX Bet (+1800).
“As we’ve been seeing quite a lot of motion on the Lions in all futures markets, Dan Campbell to win Coach of the Yr isn’t any exception,” said Adam Pullen, Caesars sportsbook assistant director of trading. “For him to win Coach of the Yr, the Lions don’t necessarily must win the NFC North, the conference, or the Super Bowl, they simply have to indicate decent improvement.
“It’s just one other approach to bet on the Lions’ success without them having to succeed in a few of those high benchmarks.”
Buzz has been, well, buzzing across the Lions after they drafted Michigan defensive end, Aidan Hutchinson, with the second pick and, after trading up 20 spots, chosen Alabama receiver Jameson Williams with the twelfth pick.
Being the featured team within the upcoming season of HBO’s “Hard Knocks” show doesn’t hurt, either.
“Coach of the Yr is mostly a wide-open betting market,” FOX Bet trader Daniel Montanari said. “We could see an early leader in Dan Campbell with the Detroit Lions headlining ‘Hard Knocks’ this offseason together with the second-worst record last season, it tends to feed into the narrative of the coach to do probably the most with the least. The ‘Hard Knocks buzz’ could lead on to some early excitement for Dan Campbell.”

Crazy NFL coaching fact: the last one to be named coach of the yr and win the Super Bowl throughout the same season was Patriots boss Bill Belichick (2003 season).
“You’d be correct in saying the award goes to who did probably the most with the least,” Montanari said. “Last yr’s winner, Mike Vrabel, won it for not only guiding the Titans to an unlikely No. 1 seed but additionally doing it while having used probably the most players in a season by the point December got here around.”
When you need to wager on the award yourself and will not be buying the Lions hype, consider this alternative. Normally, a team losing their longtime head coach and starting quarterback in back-to-back seasons spells doom, however it could win an award for brand new Saints head coach Dennis Allen, who was promoted from defensive coordinator.
“The Saints have flown under the radar this offseason with not much expected of them,” Montanari stated. “Sean Payton isn’t any longer on the helm and Drew Brees is in Yr 2 of his retirement.
“The core of the Saints squad has remained together though, Michael Thomas is back after missing all of last season plus the additions of first-round draft pick Chris Olave and free-agent signing Jarvis Landry gives the Saints a solid wide receiver corps so as to add to what I think is an underrated defense.”
PICK: Saints’ Dennis Allen (+2000 at FOX Bet, bet $10 to win $210 total) to win Coach of the Yr
