Don’t bet on Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold. No, really. Don’t.
A recent examination by bookies.com has found that Darnold is currently the worst starting quarterback to bet on in the NFL. His 14-24 record against the spread, bad enough for a 36.8-percent cover, ranks dead-last amongst all projected, non-rookie starters.
To put it into a finer perspective, the study applied a $100 betting system to the industry standard -110 line per point-spread. Using those numbers, Darnold would have lost you $1,127.40 over his short career.
Now, let’s be fair to Sam. Sure, he wasn’t great with the New York Jets. In fact, he was frighteningly bad at times.
But he was on the New York friggin’ Jets. Which starting quarterback would come out smelling like roses from the same situation he faced for the past three years?
Hilariously enough, the best quarterback to bet on based off the findings is Teddy Bridgewater. The new man under center for the Denver Broncos has gone 35-13-1 against the spread, potentially earning bettors $1,881.50 in those games.
It seems as though general manager Scott Fitterer, who ousted Bridgewater in favor of Darnold, isn’t much of a betting man.
