With the Buffalo Bills (3-1), New York Giants (3-1) and New York Jets (2-2) all having successful first quarters of the season, the future is bright for the trio of young quarterback leading the teams in the Empire State.
But which quarterback will have the most success looking forward? Who will be putting up the most touchdowns for fans and all in NY sports betting to see?
Utilizing ProFootballReference.com for its methodology, EmpireStakes.com looked at the average retirement age of a starting NFL quarterback and each New York QB’s current touchdown rate to develop hypothetical odds of hitting 300 career TDs.
The odds were built without the ability of considering serious injuries or unforeseeable events.
You won’t find these odds on NY betting apps, but they are here for your pleasure to consider.
EmpireStakes.com often provides in-depth analysis of pro sports teams such as this, as well as being a solid source for the best NY betting promos.
Odds of New York QBs Hitting 300 Career Touchdowns
Let's take a look at the odds:
The prohibitive favorite, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, already has 10 touchdowns this season for 113 in his career. In five seasons for the Bills, he has completed 1,358 passes in 2,167 attempts (62.7%) for 15,341 yards.
The prototypical-type QB will be a leader in upstate New York for years to come.
It is not legal to wager on awards in New York NFL betting, but Josh Allen is a +300 favorite at FanDuel nationally to win the MVP. Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is second (+500), followed by Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson and Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (both at +550).
The Bills remain a +450 favorite to win the Super Bowl at FanDuel NY. The Chiefs, at +700, are next.
Not only does second-year Jets quarterback Zach Wilson have youth and unlimited talent, he also now has a young, talented strong corps of wide receivers and an experienced tight end to help him flourish and lead New York out of the doldrums of the AFC East.
The problem is his health. Wilson needs to stay on the field, not only to showcase his talents, but to gain experience.
In his first start last week in a 24-20 road victory at Pittsburgh, Wilson completed 18 of 36 passes for 252 yards, one TD and two interceptions. However, it was his 6-for-6 pass performance in the Jets’ final scoring drive that had your eyes perk up.
In 14 career games, Wilson has completed 231 of 419 passes (55.1%) for 2,586 yards with 10 TDS and 13 interceptions.
If he stays on the field and cuts back on the turnovers, Wilson can do wonders.
In his fourth season with the Giants, quarterback Daniel Jones is in his make-or-break year.
So far, so good.
This season, Jones has completed 67 of 105 passes (63.8%) for 631 yards with three TDs and two interceptions in four games. For his career, he has completed 863 of 1,373 passes (62.9%) for 9,029 yards with 47 TDs and 31 INTs.
Jones has done a good job in leading a combined run-and-pass offense by first-year head coach Brian Daboll, something he could not achieve the past three seasons with former head coaches Pat Shurmur and Joe Judge.
