- Odell Beckham Jr. has already thrown 2 TD passes this season
- MyBookie has great odds should he toss another touchdown
- Is it worth laying a wager on the Giants Wide Receiver?
Odell Beckham Jr. has thrown two beautiful rainbow touchdown passes through 12 games – the only two TD passes of his five-year career.
In fact, those are the only two completions he’s had in the NFL, period, to go along with one incomplete pass way back in 2014. MyBookie has posted juicy odds should he be able to make it a hat trick of TD passes. But is it worth betting on?

Odds Stacked Against Beckham Jr. to Throw a 3rd TD
With the Giants not receiving stellar QB play all season (sorry Eli Manning), they’ve had to reach into their bag of tricks, and Beckham Jr. has been more than up to the task of creating big plays.

His first was a thing of beauty, hitting Saquon Barkley wide open for a 57-yard touchdown, and this past week he went deep to Russell Shepard for a 49-yard TD strike.

The likelihood he tosses a third TD would put him in rarefied air – just the second non-QB (and first since Bill Hewitt in 1933) to throw for more than two touchdowns in a single season.
The odds are stacked against him but he’s not just any old player – he’s a generational talent capable of brilliance.
Odell Beckham Jr. is the first non-QB with multiple Pass TD in a season since Antwaan Randle El in 2010.

Key Could be Giants Handing Reigns Over to Kyle Lauletta
There has been persistent rumors that the Giants will at some point turn to rookie fourth-round QB Kyle Lauletta to replace Eli Manning if (when) the Giants are officially eliminated from post-season contention.

Lauletta was active for the first time this season last Sunday, and if he sees extended playing time, expect the G-Men to try and put less on the rookie signal-caller’s plate – i.e. more gadgets and trick plays dialed up for Beckham Jr.
Beckham is Worth the Wager
It’s like betting the under in a game – nobody wants to cheer for less excitement.
Bet that Beckham Jr. will toss another touchdown in the remaining four contests at +1000 and make yourself some more dough this holiday season. After all, he’s the gift that keeps on giving.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
