Ja'Marr Chase's record-breaking performance Sunday vaulted the Cincinnati Bengals receiver past New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones and into the role of favorite to win NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year at U.S. sportsbooks.
Chase exploded for 266 yards receiving on 11 catches and three touchdowns in the Bengals' 34-31 win over the Kansas City Chiefs at Paul Brown Stadium. Chase set NFL rookie and Bengals single-game receiving yardage marks and is 45 yards away from breaking the single-season receiving yards record for a rookie that has stood since 1960 (Oilers' Bill Groman, 1,473 yards).
Chase began the season at 22-1 to win the Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year award and was the second choice at 7-2 entering Week 17 at Caesars Sportsbook. Now, Chase is the odds-on favorite at -220, ahead of Jones at +180. They are the only two rookies offered at Caesars Sportsbook.
