NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Odds & Predictions

Last Updated: Jan 31, 2024

NFL Honors has named the five finalists for the 2023-24 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

While the early frontrunner, Bijan Robinson, still made it as one of the finalists, there were a few surprises along the way during the regular season.

NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award Odds

NFL odds used for these OROY Award tips were found at DraftKings Sportsbook and are current as of January 2 at 10 p.m. ET.

  • C.J. Stroud, QB, Houston Texans (-1025)
  • Puka Nacua, WR, Los Angeles Rams (+450)
  • Bijan Robinson, RB, Atlanta Falcons (+12000)
  • Sam LaPorta, TE, Detroit Lions (+12500)
  • Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Detroit Lions (+17500)

NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award Prediction

C.J. Stroud, QB, Houston Texans (-1025)

After a tough 25-9 Week 1 loss against the Baltimore Ravens, the Texans and Stroud took off and didn’t look back.

The former Ohio State star finished his rookie season with 4,108 passing yards, 23 touchdowns, and only five interceptions. He also gained 167 rushing yards with three scores.

A highlight came in Week 9 when he set a rookie record with 470 passing yards and tied a rookie record with five TD passes.

Stroud has already claimed the Pro Football Writers of America’s NFL Rookie of the Year Award and is the strong favorite to win the official award from the Associated Press. He would be just the 11th quarterback to win the award (35 RBs and 11 WRs).

Best NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Sleeper

Puka Nacua, WR, Los Angeles Rams (+450)

Not too shabby for the 20th wide receiver selected in the 2023 NFL Draft. The former BYU product started the season off like he was shot out of cannon.

He collected at least nine receptions for 119-plus yards in three of his first four games. He finished with NFL rookie records for receptions (105), receiving yards (1,486), and most receptions in a game by a rookie (15, Week 2 vs 49ers).

In his wild card playoff game against the Detroit Lions, he broke the single-game record for receiving yards by a rookie (181). That may not count toward his chances to win OROY, but it just further illustrates how special Nacua was this year.

Considering the especially long odds for Stroud to win this award, Nacua is the better value bet for a small quarter-unit wager.
