The 2023 NFL season is approaching fast, and with that comes the always-competitive Coach of the Year (COY) betting market. Hitting the correct winner for this bet is quite the challenge, but it sure is rewarding, and next year should be no different.
This year’s favorite is Dan Campbell (+850 to +950) of the Detroit Lions, which look to take another leap forward after finishing off last regular season very strong. Trailing Campbell is Sean Payton (+900 to +1400), who has come out of retirement to help the Denver Broncos bounce back from last year’s humiliation.
Here are 2023 NFL Coach of the Year odds from three of the best US sportsbooks, along with which play-callers provide the best – and worst – value.

NFL Coach of the Year Odds — FAQs
Before you place a wager on whichever coach you feel will take home the award, it’s important to understand how to read Coach of the Year odds and what they mean.
According to American odds, if a bet has a “+” before the number, then it indicates the bet has an implied probability of less than 50%. The number after the plus sign tells you how much you would net profit from a $100 wager. However, bettors can risk any amount they want. $100 is just what the expression of the odds is based on, and the payout is scalable depending on the amount of wager.
Let’s take a look at Denver Broncos head coach Sean Payton, who bettors can snatch for +1400 on FanDuel. A $100 wager on Payton would net backers $1,400 profit plus their initial $100 bet, a $50 bet would net $700, and so on.
The award will be voted on shortly after the regular season ends, which means that postseason play won’t be taken into account when voters submit their ballots. The winner will be announced at the NFL Honors ceremony on shortly before Super Bowl Sunday.
The award is voted on by a panel of 50 members of the Associated Press. The panelists cover the NFL season and then place their individual votes.
Arizona, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, Tennessee, Washington D.C., West Virginia and Wyoming all allow you to legally bet on the NFL Coach of the Year award.
