The Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals surprised absolutely nobody by selecting QB Caleb Williams and wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., respectively, in the first round of the NFL draft, and they remain the favorites by the Offensive Rookie of the Year odds from our best NFL betting sites.

With the NFL schedule set, the 2024-25 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year odds have seen some slight shifting. Chicago Bears QB Caleb Williams remains the heavy favorite to win the award across our best sports betting sites.

Prior to the 2024 NFL Draft, Williams opened as the favorite to win the award and his odds have only shortened in the weeks since he was selected No. 1. Helping his cause is the fact that Chicago has the fourth-weakest strength of schedule.

Other contenders for the award include Washington Commanders QB Jayden Daniels, the No. 2 pick, and Arizona Cardinals WR Marvin Harrison Jr., the No. 4 pick. After those three, there's a logjam of QBs and WRs who could contend for the honor. 

To accompany our breakdown of the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year odds, here's our look at the 2024 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year odds from our best sportsbooks and a history of the award.

Offensive Rookie of the Year favorites

Caleb Williams (+225 via bet365)

Williams was long hailed as the likely No. 1 pick in the 2024 draft ever since he won the Heisman Trophy in 2022. Though his final season at USC wasn't nearly as impressive, he continued to show excellent command of the football and the Bears took him with their long-awaited first overall selection.

The Bears overhauled their offense via free agency and trades this offseason, and they dealt 2023 starting quarterback Justin Fields to the Pittsburgh Steelers. All of those moves seemingly paved the way for the selection of Williams at No. 1, as they've attempted to set him up for the best chance of success from Day 1.

The Chicago Bears have already officially named Williams the starter and the +225 odds represent an implied 30.77% probability of him winning the award.

Marvin Harrison Jr. (+700 via FanDuel)

While his name suggests greatness, Harrison also possesses the skills to back up the hype he was born into. He scored 14 receiving touchdowns in each of his final two years at Ohio State while topping 1,200 yards in both campaigns, even with highly questionable QB play for the Buckeyes last season.

Harrison will be the immediate No. 1 option in the Arizona Cardinals' offensive and the top target for QB Kyler Murray. As a receiver, Harrison's chances of winning this award will be strongly tied to the play of his QB, and bettors will need to hope Murray's late-season resurgence in 2023 wasn't a mirage. While only 11 wide receivers have won this award since 1968, two have won it in the last three seasons (Ja'Marr Chase, Garrett Wilson).

Jayden Daniels (+700 via bet365)

The 2023 Heisman winner was the second QB selected in the draft. The Washington Commanders traded away 2023 starter Sam Howell this offseason to create an opening under center, and Daniels will benefit from the support of receivers Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson and veteran running back Austin Ekeler.

This award heavily favors quarterbacks, with 10 winning it in the last 20 seasons, and Daniels ability as a runner should help his case. He ran for 1,134 yards and 10 TDs last season at LSU, and his new offensive coordinator, Kliff Kingsbury, helped a similarly mobile Murray win the award with the Cardinals in 2019.

Understanding Offensive Rookie of the Year odds

Betting on the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award involves predicting which rookie player will have the most outstanding offensive performance during the season. Sportsbooks typically offer odds for various rookie players based on their potential to excel in their first year in the league.

For example, let's say Caleb Williams has odds of +350 to win Offensive Rookie of the Year. This means that if you bet $10 on Williams and he wins the award, you would profit $35, plus get your original $10 bet back. On the other hand, if Jayden Daniels has odds of +1200, a $10 bet on him would yield a profit of $120 if he wins the award.

It's essential to consider factors such as player performance, team success, and playing time when betting on the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Keep an eye on rookie players' performances throughout the season, as their odds will change based on their on-field achievements and developments.
