Latest Odds of Dan Campbell Winning Coach of the Year
The Detroit Lions looked fierce and mighty during the first quarter of their game on Sunday (Dec. 3) against the New Orleans Saints, but things got shaky in the second half. Thankfully, in the end, the Lions roared, and they took home a win, making the season 9-3. With the Lions doing better than they have in decades, what are the latest odds of Dan Campbell winning Coach of the Year in the NFL? He was a fan favorite last year but didn’t make the cut. Is this year any different?
Let’s look at the bets. Oddschecker.com has a list out of the NFL coaches that people are betting on to most likely get Coach of the Year. No. 2 right now is Houston Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans, following the team’s recent win over the Denver Broncos. So, who’s No. 1?
Betting Odds of Dan Campbell Winning Coach of the Year
You guessed it. Danny Boy. Dan Campbell is No. 1, but he’s only slightly ahead of Ryans. Dan is the season-long favorite (+200) in the betting market. Regarding the ranking, Oddschecker’s Leon Blackman says, “DeMeco Ryans dream start to life as Texans’ head coach continued as his side moved to 7-5 with a win over the Broncos. Having been given just an 11% chance at the beginning of the season, the sportsbooks now give the Texans an 80% chance (-400) of making the postseason. This achievement from Houston has propelled Ryans into second-favorite for Coach of the Year, marginally trailing Detroit’s Dan Campbell, as it stands.” Check out more here.
How great would it be to see one of our own get Coach of the Year? I hope this is your year, Dan. I’m frankly going to be angsty is Dan loses out to DeMeco. Also, I just posted the latest episode of my NFL podcast, “The Squad with Anne Erickson,” where we talk about the state of the Lions. Do the Lions have to worry about Green Bay sneaking up on them for a wild card game? We also talk about the upcoming flexed Lions game, the schedule and more. Listen below.
