NFL odds 2013: Individual odds for MVP, Rookie of Year, Passing Yards, and more

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL season kicks off two weeks from today. Of course, in a multi-billion dollar industry, there are odds for everything. Today, we take a look at the odds for Miami Dolphins players to win some of the big individual hardware in 2013.

We are exactly two weeks away from meaningful NFL football games. Of course, there are two more preseason games between now and then, but those are tune-ups for the regular season, and a last chance to evaluate players deep on the roster. But, once the real games start, the debate over the best teams, and the best players, will again start.

Before the season even begins, however, the odds for some of the bigger individual accomplishments and awards are, of course, already established. How do the Miami Dolphins' players fare in's odds? We take a look.

Individual stats betting lines do not favor the Dolphins players, but when there are names like Drew Brees (4/1 to lead the league in passing yardage), Adrian Peterson (11/4 to be the leader in rushing yards), and Calvin Johnson (11/4 for receiving yards leader), it's hard for the Dolphins' top players to be among the favorites.

Miami second year quarterback Ryan Tannehill is currently a 50/1 long shot to take the league passing title. Also at the 50/1 mark are the Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III and the Kansas City Chiefs' Alex Smith. Running back Lamar Miller has a little better set of odds for the rushing title, coming in at 40/1, along with the Denver Broncos' Montee Ball and the Detroit Lions' Reggie Bush. Dolphins wide out Mike Wallace also gets the 40/1 placement, this time for receiving yards, putting him with the Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Browns, New York Giants' Hakeem Nicks, Denver's Eric Decker, and DeSean Jackson from the Philadelphia Eagles.

Miami's rookie running back Mike Gillislee has the longest posted odds for Offensive Rookie of the Year at 33/1 (St. Louis Rams wide receiver Tavon Austin if favored at 5/1), while defensive end Dion Jordan is 18/1 for the Defensive Rookie of the Year award (Detroit Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah tops the list at 6/1).

Finally, the posted odds for MVP have Peyton Manning on top at 5/1. There are no Dolphins players on the list. And, just because I found this interesting, only one defensive player made the MVP list, with Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt being listed at 40/1.
