The Best Aaron Rodgers Odds and Prop Bets For 2023 and Beyond

Aaron Rodgers Future

As most NFL fans have learned by now, Aaron Rodgers’ injury will keep him off the field for at least the 2023-24 season. Rodgers suffered a torn Achilles in the Jets Week 1 matchup against the Buffalo Bills on Monday night.   

Following the news of Rodgers’ injury, BetOnline released a series of Aaron Rodgers odds and prop bets. Additionally, the Jets’ Super Bowl 58 odds, at reacted negatively to the injury.

There are some interesting Rodgers prop bets available, including speculating on whether or not the future Hall of fame quarterback will retire or return to the field next year.

Other Rodgers prop bets handicap the possibility of the QB opening up a cannabis or psychedelics company following his football career. As of now, there aren’t any Aaron Rodgers next team odds available. It appears that most online betting sites believe that Rodgers will stick with the Jets if he comes back next year. 

Aaron Rodgers Odds

Let’s dive into all the Rodgers odds that can be wagered on at NFL betting sites. Currently, the following prop bets can be found at BetOnline:

Will Aaron Rodgers Retire Before Week 1 2024?


Is Rodgers retiring? If he were a few years younger, then this question probably wouldn’t be as difficult to answer.

Rodgers will be 40 years old by the time the 2023-24 NFL Playoffs begin. If he plays next year, Rodgers will be 41 in December 2024.

So, retirement has to be in play for Rodgers. Remember, he flirted with retiring during his time in Green Bay.

Certainly, most of it had to do with just wanting to go to a new team. He was frustrated with the Packers, but retirement crossed his mind before being traded to the Jets.

“I’m completely heartbroken and moving through all of the emotions, but deeply touched and humbled by the support and love,. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I begin the healing process today. The night is darkest before the dawn. And I shall rise yet again.” Rodgers wrote Wednesday in a post on his Instagram page.

The way we see it, as does Jets’ head coach Robert Saleh, Rodgers won’t end his illustrious career on that note.

In 2018, Alex Smith suffered a gruesome leg injury after being tackled in the backfield against the Houston Texans. He was ultimately diagnosed with a compound fracture in the fibula and tibia of his right leg1.

The injury was career-threatening, and there was even a chance he’d need to have his leg amputated. However, Smith persevered and was back on the field two years later.

Of course, then there was the NBA’s Kevin Durant, who ruptured his Achilles in Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors. Durant would return to the floor the following year.

Rodgers’ injury has been described as a completely torn Achilles. At his age, returning to the NFL will be complicated. Nevertheless, if Rodgers is interested in going through grueling rehab to return to NFL form, he has the opportunity.

No, we do not foresee Rodgers retiring before Week 1 of the 2024-25 NFL season.

The Bet

Will Aaron Rodgers Start Game 1 For The Jets In 2024?


In our opinion, the tougher question is whether or not Rodgers will be prepared to play in Week 1 of the 2024-25 season. We don’t foresee Rodgers retiring from football, but being ready to take snaps next September seems like a reach.

In reality, Rodgers would need less than a year to fully recover. The Jets will not trot Rodgers out on the field without going through the motions of training camp.

With that in mind, Rodgers will be required to return to football activities in less than a year. Rodgers’ Achilles surgery and rehab must go flawlessly for that to occur.

Even if Rodgers’ surgery does go 100 percent according to plan, recovering from a fully torn Achilles tendon is not so simple. And, again, his age will make recovering quickly more difficult.

On December 22, 2020, Durant returned to play in the regular season after rupturing his Achilles tendon. It took a total of 552 days for Durant to recover from the injury2.

Due to the recovery process, Durant missed the entire 2019-20 season. Durant was in his early 30s when he went down against the Raptors.

Are we really asking 39-year-old Rodgers to be healthy enough to play football next September? It seems like a tall order. Laying -200 odds on Rodgers starting in Week 1 doesn’t present any betting value.

Therefore, there is a strong case to be made for Rodgers not starting. At +150 odds, the best play is on “No”. He may return later in the season, but it’s difficult to see him on the field for Week 1.

What Will Aaron Rodgers Do Next?

Found A Cannabis Company+600Regular Podcast/Co-Host+700

Become A Game Show Host+3300Found A Psychedelics Company+5000
Work For CDC+10000Become State Farm Insurance Salesman+10000

This is the most intriguing prop bet available. The next thing that Rodgers will be doing is heading to the surgeon’s office and then to an operating table. However, there will be life after football for Rodgers.

Rodgers does not seem like the type of person who will ride off into the sunset with his money, never to be heard from again. Whether it’s a business venture or golfing, Rodgers will be doing something notable.

Who knows, maybe there will be a plot twist and Rodgers ends up working for the CDC? Working for the CDC and becoming a State Farm Insurance salesman are the longest odds at +10000.

Some of these options seem more believable than others. It’s plausible to see Rodgers on a reality TV show or in a movie. Also, creating a cannabis company would be right up his alley.

In June, Rodgers and Sauce Gardner were seen doing an interesting weed-smoking handshake in practice3. Currently, Rodgers starting a cannabis company has the best odds at +600.

Additionally, Rodgers has spoken favorably of psychedelics in the past. So, there might be some value in Rodgers starting a psychedelics company. With +5000 odds, maybe it’s worth a flier bet?

The option that we have circled as the most realistic is having a regular podcast or being a co-host.

Rodgers isn’t a stranger to appearing on podcasts and attracting an audience. He became a regular guest on The Pat McAfee Show, which has continued at ESPN despite censorship rules. In fact, Rodgers’ first in-depth interview regarding his injury may very well be on The Pat McAfee Show.

Unlike some of the other options, Rodgers could start a podcast tomorrow and have success. This is the strongest bet on the board at BetOnline.

The Bet

Who Will Be Aaron Rodgers’ Personal Chef?

Amanda Gyuran+400Devown Hines+500
Alan Murchison+600Mike Schauer+600
Jonathan Poyourow+600Omar Meziane+1000
Sohla El-Waylly+1000Rick Martinez+1200
Jose Andres+1400Marcus Samuelsson+1400
Eric Kim+1600Claire Saffitz+2000
J Kenji Lopez-Alt+2500Kristen Kish+2500
Justin Bethel+3300Yotam Ottolenghi+3300
Curtis Stone+3300Gordon Ramsay+5000

Finding a personal chef likely on Rodgers’ mind at the moment. However, the former Packer recently discussed how he is searching for a private chef who has experience with the ancestral diet4.

Rodgers is reportedly seeking to pay his new chief a salary of $80,000 per year. That will eliminate several of the names from this list.

For instance, will Jose Andres or Gordon Ramsay take time from their busy schedule to cater to Rodgers for $80,000?  That is highly unlikely. Currently, Ramsey has the longest odds to be Rodgers’ private chef at +5000.

Denver-based holistic nutritionist and chef, Amanda Gyuran, is the betting favorite to be Rodgers’ ancestral diet chef.

According to her book Kitchen Chemistry: The Mostly Paleo Cookbook for Couples to Spark Better Health Together, Gyuran specializes in holistic nutrition, herbalism, eating psychology, and mind-body movement5.

Additionally, Gyuran reportedly works with numerous professional athletes. It seems that Rodgers and Gyuran would be the perfect match. That said, Devown Hines has been making a name for himself in NFL circles over the last few years.

The owner of Flavaz Personal Chef & Catering has etched out a niche in cooking for NFL players. He could be on Rodgers’ shortlist for his next private chef. However, what makes Gyuran a likelier choice is her experience rehabbing NFL and NHL players.

According to the Kitchen Chemistry Cookbook website, Gyuran is a Level 2 STOTT Pilates Instructor and has helped rehab professional athletes back to form6.

In 2015, Rodgers said that he added Pilates and yoga to his workout regimen7. If Rodgers wants a chef who can take care of it all, it appears that Gyuran is a safe bet.

As holistic of an approach as Rodgers takes to his health, Gyuran is a strong pick to be his private chef.
