As the NFL season heats up, the race to break Calvin "Megatron" Johnson's single-season receiving record has never been more at hand. With several standout wide receivers vying for this coveted achievement, BetUS.com, the original online sportsbook marking its 30th NFL season this year, has posted an exclusive betting market asking bettors if Johnson’s 1,964 yard record will fall this season, and who may just be the one to do it.
Justin Jefferson, the dynamic receiver from the Minnesota Vikings, finds himself in first place in BetUS’s odds on who – if anyone – will break Megatron’s single-season receiving record. He's not only ahead in terms of receiving yards so far this season, but with +150 odds is the most likely candidate to break Johnson’s record, according to BetUS oddsmakers. Jefferson's impressive start to the season, with 543 receiving yards, and his trajectory make him a strong contender to etch his name in the NFL record books.
Second place in BetUS’s odds to break Johnson’s single-season receiving record is the Dolphins’ Tyreek Hill at +400 odds. With 470 receiving yards so far this season, Hill is demonstrating that experience and opportunity go a long way.
Puka Nacua, the rookie sensation who has taken the NFL by storm, rounds out the top three in BetUS’s odds to break Johnson’s record with odds of +550. His remarkable performance for the Los Angeles Rams, with 501 receiving yards, has caught the attention of fans and bettors alike.
According to Tim Williams, Director of Public Relations at BetUS, "Nacua presents an enticing option for bettors at +550 odds, given his standout performance this season that will likely only get better as the season progresses."
While these three are the frontrunners, other notable receivers like Davante Adams (+1800), A.J. Brown (+2200), Stefon Diggs, Keenan Allen, and more are also in contention, each with their own unique strengths and narratives.
