The NFL Betting Offers Available at Leo Vegas

The 2021 NFL season is scheduled to start in less than two months time, when defending Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay host Dallas in the kick-off game on September 9th.

So, now may well be the ideal time to take advantage of the LeoVegas NFL welcome offer, which takes the form of a 100% profit boost up to the value of £100. This can be deployed across a number of NFL betting markets, both in terms of ante post wagers and in-play bets.

Of course, coronavirus uncertainty continues to grip the US, which is why players have once again been given the chance to opt out of the 2021 season.

This doesn’t mean that there aren’t plenty of chances to wager on the NFL this season, and LeoVegas is the place to start if you’re looking to bet on the upcoming action! Here are some of the best NFL markets for 2021! 

  1. Tom Brady Markets – Total Passing Yards During the Regular Season

As the sport’s most decorated player, it should come as no surprise that Leo Vegas offers entire markets that are focused on the former New England Patriots legend Tom Brady.

In 2021, for example, you can wager on the seven-time Super Bowl winner’s total passing yards during the regular season, in the form of an over/under bet that’s classed as a special on the sportsbook’s platform.

More specifically, you can back Brady to complete more than 4500.50 passing years at odds of 23/25, or wager on him falling short of 4500.50 at a current price of ¾.

This is a fascinating wager, and one that’s difficult to call even when you analyse Brady’s performance over the course of the last six years. After all, Brady has concluded less than 4500 passing years three times during this period (in 2016, 2018 and 2019), while completing considerably more yards in 2015, 2017 and 2020.

However, Brady’s average has remained largely consistent since his most recent zenith in 2015, when he completed 4,770 passing yards at an average of 7.6. While this increased to 8.2 the following year, it has remained largely unchanged in the subsequent six years and levelled out once again with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 7.6 in 2020.

So, much will depend on Brady’s legendary fitness and how many games he plays for the Patriots, but the smart money may well be on ‘California Cool’ completing more than 4,500 passing yards through the 2021 season.

  1. The First NFL Head Coach to Leave

This is a popular, albeit slightly harsh, marketplace, in which punters can wager on the first NFL head coach to leave their post during the new season.

Unsurprisingly, Kliff Kingsbury is the current favourite to leave first at a price of 7/1, with the Arizona Cardinals chief under immense pressure after a disastrous end to the 2020 season.

Kingsbury was an unusual hire at best two years ago, and it’s fair to say that he earned mixed reviews during this time. However, the boss took a great deal of heat when the Cardinals effectively fell apart last season, as they lost seven of their last nine matches including games that they were clear favourites to win.

So, he’s undoubtedly skating on thin ice and won’t be able to sustain a difficult start to the new season.

Dallas Cowboys chief Mike McCarthy can also be backed to depart his post at odds of 7/1 at LeoVegas, with many suggesting that it will be the playoffs or bust this season.

  1. The Winners of the NFL Championship

Of course, no outright NFL betting market would be complete without a wager on the Championship as a whole, with the Kansas City Chiefs the existing LeoVegas favourites at odds of 5/1.

Much of this has to do with a reshaped and revamped offensive line, having acquired Joe Thuney, Kyle Long and Orlando Brown. Standout guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardiff is also expected to return to the Chief’s lineup after opting out in 2020, while the recent draft saw them add squad depth in the form of centre Creed Humphrey and Tennessee guard Trey Smith.

Of course, 2020 champions the Chiefs narrowly missed out to Tampa Bay earlier this year in Super Bowl LV, but these improvements afford them an advantage over the Buccaneers.

However, Tampa are still second favourites at a competitive 13/2, having re-signed key players like Shaq Barrett and Lavonte David. They also drafted in Washington OLB Joe Trydon in the first draft, so they’ll be there or thereabouts this season.

If you’re looking for an outside wager, the Tennessee Titans may be your best bet at a current price of 25/1. After all, the Titans have steadily improved in recent years, while they made one of the blockbuster moves of the NFL off-season by landing superstar WR Julio Jones in a trade with Atlanta.
