Ranking Every Starting NFL QB By Record Against the Spread


Ranking Every Starting NFL QB By Record Against the Spread

Which NFL starting quarterback has the best career record against the spread?

We examined all 32 starting QBs ahead of Week 1 of the 2021 season to determine how much money you would have won or lost backing them each time they started in the NFL throughout their careers.

So who has the best NFL betting record ATS? Here’s a hint: His initials are “TB.”

Care to guess?

The answer: Denver Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who is a stellar 35-13-1 ATS, covering in 71.4% of his career starts so far.

Bridgewater won the job over Drew Lock in Broncos camp. As an NFL starter, Bridgewater is 35-13-1 ATS in his career while playing for the Vikings, Saints and Panthers. That crushes his 26-23 mark outright in 49 NFL starts.

The other “TB” is pretty good, too. Tom Brady is 201-138-8 ATS for the Patriots and Bucs in his seven-Super-Bowl-ring career. Would-be weekly Brady backers are up $4,770.90 using the same formula since Brady made his first start when replacing Drew Bledsoe 20 years ago this month.

Not all spreads are created equally. For this project, we used the archived weekly Las Vegas consensus lines, according to Pro Football Reference.
