That also means the return of betting season for some. As always, there are plenty of interesting prop bets for fans and bettors alike to look at, in an attempt to gauge what could be on the way for their favorite teams and players this season.
Unsurprisingly, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is among some of the more intriguing prop bets for the 2012 season. Fans are eager to see if the Stanford product can live up to the lofty expectations that have been placed on him by the league, fans, media and oddsmakers all the same.
Speaking of expectations, it's another important year for Jets head coach Rex Ryan. He's kept quiet — for the most part — through the offseason and into the preseason. Maybe that means he's starting to feel the pressure. Will he make it through the season? Will he be back in 2013?
That, and much more are among the top prop bets for this season, according to Bovada's sportsbook.
