Kyler Murray opens as big favorite to win offensive rookie of the year, has solid MVP odds as well

NFL: Arizona Cardinals-Minicamp Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL media and gambling community believe the Arizona Cardinals have something special.

The Arizona Cardinals and the fans certainly hope they have something special in Kyler Murray, something they have never seen before.

What we have not seen before is a huge belief in an Arizona Cardinals draft pick from outside of the local fans and media.

Yet, Kyler Murray has it.

BetOnline released their most recent odds for all of the 2019 NFL Postseason awards and Kyler Murray is the heavy favorite to win the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award:

2019 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year

  • Kyler Murray 8/5
  • Darrell Henderson 7/1
  • Dwayne Haskins 7/1
  • Josh Jacobs 8/1
  • David Montgomery 14/1
  • Deebo Samuel 16/1
  • Mecole Hardman 18/1
  • Miles Sanders 20/1
  • N’Keal Harry 20/1
  • Parris Campbell 20/1

Murray is better than a 2/1 favorite to win offensive rookie of the year and surprisingly, comes in with better odds to win NFL MVP than a number of established stars and tied with some of the top players at their positions in the NFL:

2019 Regular Season NFL MVP

  • Patrick Mahomes 6/1
  • Aaron Rodgers 9/1
  • Andrew Luck 9/1
  • Carson Wentz 9/1
  • Baker Mayfield 12/1
  • Drew Brees 14/1
  • Tom Brady 14/1
  • Philip Rivers 20/1
  • Ben Roethlisberger 25/1
  • Cam Newton 25/1
  • Deshaun Watson 25/1
  • Jimmy Garoppolo 25/1
  • Matt Ryan 25/1
  • Russell Wilson 25/1
  • Jared Goff 33/1
  • Lamar Jackson 33/1
  • Mitchell Trubisky 33/1
  • Alvin Kamara 50/1
  • Christian McCaffrey 50/1
  • Ezekiel Elliot 50/1
  • Jameis Winston 50/1
  • Kirk Cousins 50/1
  • Kyler Murray 50/1
  • Saquon Barkley 50/1
  • Todd Gurley 50/1

Murray finds himself in a class with All Pro’s like Alvin Kamara, Todd Gurley and Ezekiel Elliot.

He is in front of his teammate David Johnson and others like Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Jr and Marcus Mariota.

There is a strong belief in not only the ability of Murray, but the opportunity he is about to receive playing for Kliff Kingsbury and the Arizona Cardinals.
