OBJ all the way
In addition to helping Baker Mayfield this season, Odell Beckham, Jr. — the Browns explosive new wideout — is expected to help himself quite a bit as well. Again, Odds Shark looks favorable at a member of the Cleveland offense as OBJ comes in with +1600 odds to record the most receiving touchdowns in the 2019 NFL Season. He’s tied with JuJu Smith-Schuster of the Steelers for fourth place. The two only have DeAndre Hopkins of the Houston Texans, Davante Adams from the Green Bay Packers, and Travis Kelce from the Chiefs ahead of them.
OBJ had a subpar season in 2018 with the New York Giants, but still managed to register 1,052 yards. However, he had just six touchdowns as the Giants offense struggled to play consistent football. Joining forces with Baker Mayfield is a great thing as OBJ now has a quarterback who is much better at airing the ball out deep — which should help him get back to the form that say him score 35 touchdowns in his first three seasons.
He’s not only expected to score a lot of touchdowns, but OBJ should be able to put up a ton of yardage. At least, that’s the case according to Oddsmakers as he also comes in fourth for odds to lead the NFL in receiving touchdowns. This time, he’s a +1100, but again, there’s high expectations for OBJ and the people willing to put their money on it seem to agree.
