It’s inevitable that a few teams will make changes at quarterback this NFL season, especially the ones who had position battles in training camp.
On Wednesday, the oddsmakers released their odds for which quarterback will be benched first this season. Chicago Bears quarterback Andy Dalton is the overwhelming favorite at the moment with +175 odds.
Dalton was named the starter for the Bears over Justin Fields. And yet, it’s only a matter of time before Fields leads the first-team offense in the Windy City.
The quarterback with the second-best odds to be benched this season is Teddy Bridgewater. He won the starting gig over Drew Lock, which stunned a lot of Denver Broncos fans because they thought Lock actually looked better in the preseason.
Here are the full odds from Odds Shark:

Jameis Winston and Mac Jones round out the top five for this list, albeit they seem to have secure jobs at the moment.
Of course, these odds can drastically change depending on how these quarterbacks perform when the regular season begins next week.
