Sportsbook Review betting analyst Neil Parker has evaluated the 2023 NFL Coach of the Year odds from our best sports betting apps and shares his thoughts based on the latest NFL odds.

Miami Dolphins Head coach Mike McDaniel had a chance to kick a field goal from the Denver Broncos’ 27-yard line with 32 seconds left and a 70-20 lead. He opted to have backup quarterback Mike White take a knee instead.

The NFL record for most points in a game is 72.

Passing up the opportunity to rewrite the NFL history books is going to go a long way in the Coach of the Year betting market, and McDaniel clearly has his eyes on the big picture. 

After all, Miami is climbing the Super Bowl odds lists, and quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is the consensus favorite in the NFL MVP odds.

This isn’t 1972 Dolphins – or maybe even 2023 Colorado Buffaloes – level stuff just yet, but Miami, McDaniel and Tua are rightfully garnering prime-time headlines.

Here is our look at the best odds for the 2023 NFL Coach of the Year winner across our best NFL betting sites.

NFL Coach of the Year odds analysis

There aren’t many edges to be found in the Coach of the Year odds across our best NFL prop betting sites. Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell's price dropped following an impressive win on Thursday Night Football, and the Lions' Super Bowl odds also dipped after the statement NFC North win over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

NFL Coach of the Year odds 2023: Favorite

Mike McDaniel (+400 via bet365)

Winning consecutive road games against AFC East foes was a great start for McDaniel and the Dolphins. Blowing out the Denver Broncos and putting 70 points on the board was historic stuff in Week 3, and the second-year head coach is the rightful favorite at the top of the Coach of the Year odds lists across our best NFL prop betting sites.

I’m also confident McDaniel can continue to win over the voters, so as long as the ‘Fins keep ticking the wins column, he’s going to be among the betting favorites in this market all season.

NFL Coach of the Year odds 2023: Contender

Dan Campbell (+700 via BetMGM

The Detroit Lions are off to a 3-1 start following Thursday’s impressive road win over Green Bay. Campbell has been a top contender for this award since the 2023 NFL Coach of the Year odds were released. He'll remain in the running as long as the Lions keep winning.

NFL Coach of the Year odds 2023: Fade

Arthur Smith (+1400 via bet365)

Smith has steadily climbed the Coach of the Year odds lists since training camps opened, but the Atlanta Falcons failed to show up on the road against the Detroit Lions in Week 3, and they host the 1-2 Jacksonville Jaguars off an upset loss as a home underdog in Week 4.

I’m not buying Smith tickets at this price, and especially with his fate in this market tied to quarterback Desmond Ridder and a passing attack averaging just 155 yards per game.
