McAdoo, Cutler on Bubble in NFL Specials

McAdoo, Cutler on Bubble in NFL Specials - Bovada Sports

A dismal 0-4 start by the New York Giants has spurred speculation about the future of head coach Ben McAdoo, who has emerged as a +110 wager to be fired before Week 17 of the season.

McAdoo enjoyed a solid first season with the Giants last year, leading the club to its first playoff berth since their victory at Super Bowl XLVI. However, the future of the 40-year-old bench boss is now in doubt following reports that opposing defenses have solved the Giants’ offensive playbook.

The Giants averaged 23.5 points per game over their past two outings, covering in road losses to Philadelphia and Tampa Bay, but have averaged just 15.2 points per game over their past 10 outings, calling into question an offensive strategy developed by McAdoo.

New York is not the only squad under pressure after failing to produce a win through the first month of the season. A move from San Diego has done nothing to revive the fortunes of a Chargers squad that also sports an 0-4 record, extending its straight-up slide to nine games.

The Chargers have shown room for improvement by staying within three points of opponents in five of those losses. However, they have failed to attract fans to the cozy confines of their temporary home at StubHub Center, where visiting supporters have filled the seats for three successive weeks, fueling speculation the team will return to San Diego next season.

But the odds of the Chargers playing in San Diego in the 2018 season remain pegged at a longshot +1000 on the NFL props following vigorous denials by both the team and the league that a return to their old home was being discussed.


Cutler Favored to Not be in NFL Next Season

The Miami Dolphins have also been a massive disappointment, producing a league-worst 23 total points while compiling a 1-2 record.

Quarterback Jay Cutler has taken much of the heat for the Dolphins’ poor performance with the ball. The 34-year-old pivot has connected on just two touchdown passes against two interceptions, and finished last week’s 20-0 loss to New Orleans as 3.5-point underdogs sporting a brutal 9.6 quarterback rating.

That has cast doubt on Cutler’s future in the NFL, with -300 odds favoring that he will not be on an NFL roster for Week 1 of the 2018 season.

In other Week 5 NFL specials, Mitch Trubisky, Cutler’s replacement in Chicago, is a -120 bet to toss over 1.5 touchdown passes in the Bears’ clash with Minnesota on Monday night.
