Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, and what he was able to do with the Green Bay Packers was nothing short of legendary. Unfortunately, people are starting to grow tired of Rodgers due to his antics off of the field, especially when it comes to his decisions regarding retirement.
Rodgers was able to force his way out of Green Bay this offseason, but it didn’t take much, as the Packers were ready to move on as well. He is now with the New York Jets, and there are some that believe he will transform that team into a playoff contender.
That’s simply not going to happen, as Rodgers showed some signs of regression a season ago with the Packers. There are plenty of different ways to bet on season props when it comes to the quarterback, and three options really stand out.
Too Many Risks
Rodgers is the type of quarterback that believes that he can make every throw, and that used to work when he was at the top of his game. Now that he is getting near the end of his career, he takes too many risks that end up as interceptions.
The over/under for interceptions thrown by Rodgers, this season is set at 8.5, and that’s a number that is simply way too low. Not only is Rodgers too risky with the ball, but he is actually facing some tough competition in the AFC East Division.
Rodgers is going to throw at least ten interceptions this season, and this feels like an easy bet to make heading into the 2023 NFL season.
Take the Over on Yards
The over/under for passing yards for Aaron Rodgers and the New York Jets heading into the season is set at 4000.5, and that’s actually a great line. Getting to 4,000 passing yards in a season is easier now than ever before, as there is a 17th game on the schedule.
Last year the Jets were able to throw for 4,040 yards on offense, and that was with some terrible quarterbacks under center. This league has turned into a league for quarterbacks, and those players are always going to put up some stats.
Rodgers is going to have plenty of chances to throw the football, especially since the Jets are going to be trailing in most games heading into the fourth quarter. The Jets will be forced to air it out in an attempt to catch up, and that’s something that Rodgers is capable to do.
Bet the over 4,000.5 passing yards, as it will come out of necessity with Rodgers and this offense.
No Touchdown Targets
While Rodgers is going to put up some big numbers when it comes to the passing yards, don’t expect that to be true when looking at his touchdown numbers. Rodgers was surrounded by elite talent in Green Bay, and that won’t be the case with the New York Jets.
The Jets had just 15 passing touchdowns a season ago, and that speaks to the talent on the offensive side of the ball. Adding Rodgers to the mix is obviously going to help improve those numbers, but it’s not going to be a massive change.
The Jets will be looking to run the football more in the red zone, as they can’t afford to let Rodgers make a big mistake. The over/under for touchdown passes is set at 28.5, and you are going to have to bet the under in this market.
