Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas easily led the NFL in receiving yards last season, and the Vegas odds say he’s got a good chance of doing it again.

Thomas is the betting favorite to lead the league in receiving yards in 2020, with +350 odds at Caesars Sportsbook.

Last year Thomas had 1,725 receiving yards. Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones finished second with 1,394 yards, and he’s also second in the betting odds heading into this season, at +700.

DeAndre Hopkins, who was traded from the Texans to the Cardinals this year, is listed next at +900. Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans, who has a new quarterback in Tom Brady, is next at +1200. Evans’ teammate Chris Godwin is next at +1500, tied with Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill.

Packers wide receiver Davante Adams and Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper are next, tied at +1800. Browns receiver Odell Beckham and Lions receiver Kenny Golladay follow them at +2000.

  1. I just plunked down $1,000 that the Saints get bounced in round 1 of the playoffs. It’ll probably be by the Vikings, but that wasn’t part of the bet.

  2. Well when all you run are 5 yard routes and you constantly push off it’s not that hard. Where was Mike in the NFC title game against the Rams a couple years ago?

  3. As much as I would like this to happen, it’s going to be hard to do again. A healthy Sanders, Cook, Kamara, Murray, and whoever is WR3 are going to eat into those numbers from last year.

  4. Michale Thomas is the least likeable receiver in this league. If you don’t worship the ground he walks on, he goes off on a rage tirade.

  5. If Burrows isn’t running for his life Bengals will have have a nice passing attack too with a talented receiving group

    That’s a bold claim considering the fact that wide receivers are traditionally d(iva)-bags. I bet Thomas is no less likable than one of the receivers on your favorite team…whatever team that is.

  7. At least Thomas channels his diva mentality into production rather than headlines. He seems like more of a warrior and a good teammate than most blowhard drama-queen receivers.
