New, comments

With a new set of post-draft odds, the Rams' rookie QB is the favorite to follow RB Todd Gurley as the offensive rookie of the year. The Super Bowl? Not so much...

The 2016 NFL Draft is in the books, and so we begin the long march toward the 2016 NFL season and Super Bowl LI. In doing so, we've already got a new set of odds to match the projections coming out of this weekend.

The Rams started out as 50-1 long shots to win the Super Bowl back in Februarya March update after the first surge of free agency saw no change on that front. And now following the selection of Cal QB Jared Goff with the #1 overall pick and a crop of targets for him to work with?

Well, if Jeff Fisher is the face of consistency...the odds certainly aren't wavering one way or the other. The Rams remain at 50-1, though we've seen plenty of teams fall even further behind as the favorites solidified their roster through the draft. Here's how Bovada has them as of today:

Team Feb. 8 Mar. 14 May 4
New England Patriots 9-1 15-2 7-1
Seattle Seahawks 9-1 10-1 8-1
Green Bay Packers 12-1 10-1 10-1
Pittsburgh Steelers 12-1 10-1 10-1
Carolina Panthers 9-1 10-1 11-1
Arizona Cardinals 14-1 16-1 14-1
Denver Broncos 16-1 10-1 16-1
Cincinnati Bengals 20-1 22-1 18-1
Dallas Cowboys 16-1 20-1 22-1
Indianapolis Colts 25-1 25-1 22-1
Minnesota Vikings 25-1 22-1 22-1
Kansas City Chiefs 25-1 25-1 25-1
New York Giants 33-1 33-1 25-1
Oakland Raiders 66-1 33-1 25-1
Baltimore Ravens 33-1 40-1 33-1
Houston Texans 40-1 20-1 33-1
New York Jets 33-1 50-1 40-1
Washington 50-1 50-1 40-1
Atlanta Falcons 33-1 50-1 50-1
Buffalo Bills 33-1 50-1 50-1
Chicago Bears 40-1 50-1 50-1
Los Angeles Rams 50-1 50-1 50-1
Philadelphia Eagles 33-1 50-1 50-1
Detroit Lions 33-1 50-1 66-1
Jacksonville Jaguars 66-1 66-1 66-1
Miami Dolphins 50-1 66-1 66-1
New Orleans Saints 33-1 50-1 66-1
San Diego Chargers 50-1 50-1 66-1
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 50-1 50-1 75-1
Cleveland Browns 150-1 150-1 100-1
San Francisco 49ers 50-1 66-1 100-1
Tennessee Titans 66-1 100-1 100-1

Perhaps is a fair acknowledgement that while so many teams have dropped from their February odds as the front-runners cemented their status at the top, the Rams have at least avoided being downgraded. Then again, seeing the Raiders go from 66-1 to 33-1 tells you about the trajectory of that team...I digress.

Meanwhile, we've also got some post-draft prop bets available, notably those relating to Rams rookie QB Jared Goff:

Jared Goff - Total Passing Yards in the 2016 Regular Season
Over/Under: 3400

Jared Goff - Total TD Passes in the 2016 Regular Season
Over/Under: 16.5

NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year - Odds to Win
Jared Goff: 2-1
Ezekiel Elliott: 5-2
Derrick Henry: 7-1
Corey Coleman: 15-2
Josh Doctson: 12-1
Laquon Treadwell: 12-1
Kenneth Dixon: 14-1
Jordan Howard: 14-1
Paul Perkins: 16-1
Sterling Shepard: 16-1

The expectations are getting set pretty high, both by external observers but by the Rams alike. The question is if Goff can do what Just Todd Gurley couldn't: propel the Rams to a winning season.
