I am tracking 2024-25 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year odds from the time they open, through the 2024-2025 NFL season, and right up until the award is handed out. Sports betting apps opened NFL OROY odds for the 2024-25 season nearly a week before the NFL Draft. These odds, of course, saw significant movement once we did find out where each player would be calling home this year.

The graphs below were generated by averaging the odds from our top sportsbooks.

Top NFL OROY Contenders

The NFL Draft odds were correct in predicting the Chicago Bears would take Caleb Williams with the first-overall pick, putting him in an offense surrounded by the talents of DJ Moore, Keenan Allen, Cole Kmet, D’Andre Swift, as well as the ninth-overall pick Rome Odunze. The new Bears quarterback opened as the favorite to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year for the 2024-25 NFL season, and his odds only got better after Chicago added another receiver to his arsenal.

Marvin Harrison Jr, Malik Nabers, and Rome Odunze, who were the first three receivers off the board in the NFL Draft, all had short odds to win the award prior to the draft. However, both Nabers and Odunze saw their odds fade after being selected by less than ideal teams for their OROY potential. Nabers, whose odds didn’t totally tank, will be catching passes from Daniel Jones in New York this year, while Odunze becomes the third-best receiver on his team behind DJ Moore and Keenan Allen. The receiver who appears to be the biggest winner on draft night was Xavier Worthy, who was drafted by the Chiefs and now moves from a top 13 contender to a top six.

The drafts other top quarterbacks – Jayden Daniels, Drake Maye, and JJ McCarthy – all ended up in great spots where they are likely to start Week 1. McCarthy’s new home in Minnesota resulted in the biggest odds improvement among the three.

Here are some more notes on odds movement:

  • [April 26] The player selected on Day 2 of the NFL Draft who benefited most from their landing spot was Keon Coleman, who was selected by the Bills with the 33rd-overall pick (first pick of the second round). Coleman’s OROY odds improved from +5000 to as short as +2500, as he potentially becomes Josh Allen’s go-to wide receiver in Buffalo. Running backs were flying off the board on the second day of the draft as well, and Jonathon Brooks is the back who saw his odds improve the most. Brooks was the first RB selected and is expected to be the lead back in Carolina right away. His odds went from +5000 to +3400 after he was drafted. Blake Corum, on the other hand, saw his odds go from +5000 to +8000 after being selected by the Rams, where he will likely backup Kyren Williams to at least start the year.
  • [April 25] The first round of the NFL Draft brought plenty of big OROY odds movement. Starting with quarterbacks, we saw JJ McCarthy drafted tenth-overall by the Vikings, resulting in his odds improving from as long as +1600 to as short as +800. Bo Nix, who was drafted 12th-overall by the Broncos, saw his OROY odds improve from +3500 to +1600, as he expects to walk in and start in Denver. Michael Penix Jr, on the other hand, is now an afterthought in NFL OROY odds, as he went from +1800 to +6000 since he’ll be backing up Kirk Cousins in Atlanta. Malik Nabers, who had the third-best odds prior to the draft, saw his odds fade from as short as +700 to as long as +1400 when he was selected by the Giants. Rome Odunze’s NFL OROY odds suffered a similar fate when he was drafted by the Bears, who now have an awful lot of mouths to feed. Odunze’s odds were as short as +1000 before the draft but are now as long as +2500. The receiver who benefitted the most from the team who drafted him is Xavier Worthy. The new Chiefs wide receiver was as long as +4000 to win OROY before the draft, but is now as short as +1600.
  • [April 19] Sportsbooks, namely DraftKings, has opened the odds to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year for the 2024-25 NFL season, despite not knowing where any of these incoming rookies will be playing yet. Caleb Williams has opened as a pretty heavy favorite with +275 odds. Marvin Harrison Jr opened with the second-best odds at +550.
