With the 2020 NFL season kicking this week, Sports Betting AG released its latest odds and prop bets for the NFL season earlier this week. Those odds indicated that Dwayne Haskins is the early favorite to be the first starting quarterback benched during the season.
Haskins currently sits at +150, followed closely by Ryan Fitzpatrick at +225 and Mitchell Trubisky at +250.
The betting site thinks Alex Smith will fully recover from his gruesome leg injury suffered in 2018 soon enough to takeover as QB1. Outside of Smith, the Washington Football Team has Kyle Allen, who has been listed as the backup quarterback for Week 1 against the Eagles.
The Team 980/95.9FM’s Kevin Sheehan expressed his opposition to the betting site’s prediction and deemed that Fitzpatrick, Trubisky, and even Tyrod Taylor had better chances to be benched first. Haskins’ projection to be the first starting quarterback benched is another slap in the face to the second-year quarterback and Sheehan begs the question: Why is Haskins so shorted, so disrespected?
