While most of us still wait in eager anticipation of sports gambling becoming legal in our states, we can still get some bets down on our favorite sport to wager on, football, even though there aren’t actually any games taking place. (Other than in Canada, which you can also wager on, go Alouettes!)

We’ve already seen numerous projected win totals for both college and the NFL as we close in on their 2018 seasons. But what about the battles taking place in camp between the players on each team? And more importantly, who will be starting at quarterback for all of these teams when the first ball is kicked off?

Our buds over at BetDSI.com have a pretty good idea as they have now posted odds on which player will emerge to win the four most obvious NFL quarterback competitions.

BetDSI Sportsbook also has posted the odds on who will win the top 20 quarterback battles in college football.

However, the QB battles at Michigan and LSU have already been taken off board due to some one-sided action.

“When we see heavy, sharp money on one side of a prop like this, it usually means information has been leaked,” a BetDSI oddsmaker said. “Shea Patterson (-190) received a flurry of action for the Wolverines’ race while Joe Burrow (+130) was getting hammered on the LSU line. Two touted transfers, maybe we just had the odds too low, or maybe someone knows something we don’t.”

So is Shea Patterson locked in at Michigan? What about Joe Burrow at LSU? I guess time will tell. In the interim, here are the rest of the top 20 college QB battles.
