Latest NFL Coach of the Year award odds update
01/04/2023: Sirianni remains the odds leader, although Kyle Shanahan has vaulted into the second at +200. The 49ers are the hottest team in football, winners of their last nine games. Meanwhile, Super Bowl-winning head coach Doug Pederson finds himself now at +1,000 following the Jaguars' late surge for a playoff spot. Jacksonville is currently 8-8 under Pederson, a massive step up from last year's disastrous 3-14 campaign in 2021.
12/13/2022: Sirianni's Eagles are now 12-1, coming off a blowout win over Brian Daboll's Giants in the Meadowlands. The biggest move over the week sees Lions' head coach Dan Campbell now in second on the odds board following Detroit's home win over Minnesota. Following a 1-6 start to the season in which Campbell's job was becoming jeopardized, the second-year head coach is now a legitimate contender for COY as Detroit hopes to make the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
11/29/2022: Sirianni and the Eagles are coming off a dominating home win over Green Bay to secure their 10th win of the season. At the same time, Mike McDaniel is now tied for second with Kevin O'Connell at +500, as the Dolphins are winners of their last five. Meanwhile, Brian Daboll's odds have slightly dipped after a loss to Dallas on Thanksgiving. Robert Saleh's Jets bounced back in a big way in Week 12, with a 31-10 win over the Bears as they currently maintain a Wild Card spot in the AFC at 7-4.
11/15/2022: Despite a minor hiccup in which the Eagles were upset at home by Washington on MNF, Sirianni is still the favorite to win Coach of the Year as Philly has a favorable matchup to immediately bounce back against the Colts. Meanwhile, Kevin O'Connell is narrowing the gap behind Brian Daboll for the second, as the rookie HC is now at +360 following Minnesota's incredible comeback win in Buffalo over the weekend.
11/2/2022: Following a perfect 7-0 start, Philadelphia Eagles coach Nick Sirianni has moved into odds-on favorite status, sitting at -120 to win. Pete Carroll has also jumped up into the Top 5, moving to +1,400 — after sitting at +2,300 last week — following Seattle's big Week 8 win over the Giants.
Previous NFL Coach of the Year betting action
10/26/2022: Don't look now, but Robert Saleh's New York Jets are 5-2... and Gang Green's bench boss is now in the Top 5 of the COY betting board at +1,100. Following a 16-9 win in Denver, New York has won four straight games — and is just a half-game behind the Buffalo Bills for first-place in the AFC East.
