The 2018 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year race was one of the most exciting in recent memory. Both Cleveland Browns' quarterback Baker Mayfield and New York Giants' running back Saquon Barkley, who would go on to win the award, had legitimate cases, with Lamar Jackson making a late push as well.

This year's race will have a lot to live up to, and as things currently stand, Kyler Murray is the favorite to win the award at +260, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

While Murray's production over/under total wasn't quite as high as you might expect, he's still heavily favored to take home 2019 Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.

Dwyane Haskins has the second-best odds, as he's listed at +750. Given the Washington Redskins' issues at quarterback, Haskins could be the starter this season, which would give him a great foundation to compete for the award.

As for the skill positions, Marquise Brown (+1000) is the favorite at receiver, Josh Jacobs (+1200) is the favorite at running back, and T.J. Hockenson (+1300) is the tight end with the best odds. All three players look likely to be starters this season, so it wouldn't be a surprise if any of these three won the award either.

While Murray is currently the betting favorite to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, it looks like he'll have some stiff competition this season.
