First year New York Jets head coach Robert Saleh holds the most tickets at one sportsbook to win 2021’s NFL Coach of the Year award.
Saleh has 11.7% of the total tickets at BetMGM while no other coach has a double-digit ticket total. The former 49ers defensive coordinator’s odds to win the award are +2000 as of Thursday afternoon.
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel holds the second-most bets at 7.4%. His odds were at +2500 as of Thursday afternoon.
Another new coach in the Detroit Lions’ Dan Campbell holds the third-most bets at 6.6% with odds at +5000 — the second longest odds for this particular line.
Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich is tied for third most tickets at 6.6%. Reich’s odds are +2500.
New Los Angeles Chargers coach Brandon Staley is the favorite to win the award at +1200 but has just 4.3% of the total tickets.

In terms of total money, Kyle Shanahan takes the cake with 21.3%. Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy is second with about 15% of the money while Saleh is third-most with over 10%.
Shanahan, Mike McCarthy and Saleh make up about half of the total money wagered on this line.
One bettor at BetMGM placed a $1,000 bet on McCarthy to win this award when the coach was still +3000. That bet would net $30,000 if it hits. McCarthy’s line has since moved down to +2000.
