On one hand, wide receiver Amari Cooper is coming off his worst season in the NFL. On the other hand head coach Jon Gruden expects Cooper to be the “main vein” in the Raiders offense. Despite his top receiver status, the over/under odds for his 2018 regular season receiving yards don’t have him cracking the 1000-yard mark.
BetDSI Sportsbook recently put out their odds and they have Amari Cooper with an over 975 yards (-125) and under 975 yards (-105). What this means is that if you bet $100 Cooper hits the 975-yard mark and he does, you would make $25 back on your original $100 investment. On the flip side, if you wager $100 Cooper misses the mark, you would only make $5 back.
This bet means the over is slightly favored, which is odd considering Cooper has already topped 1,000 yards twice in his three-year career with the Silver & Black.
Even still, 975 yards is well above Cooper’s 680 receiving yards last year. He spent the season battling through injuries allowing Michael Crabtree to be the featured receiver.
With Crabtree in Baltimore, Cooper is once again the Raiders top option with Jordy Nelson starting across from him. Both should immensely benefit from the coaching switch to Gruden.
If you were betting, would you bet Amari Cooper goes over or under 975 yards this season?
