Bovada thinks Blake Bortles will lead NFL in interceptions in 2017

NFL: Denver Broncos at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Bovada doesn’t think too kindly of the Jacksonville Jaguars or their quarterback Blake Bortles — making him the odds-on favorite to lead the NFL in interceptions in 2017.

I’m a little surprised by this, not because I have hope in Bortles minimizing his turnovers, but rather I don’t see Tom Coughlin and Doug Marrone letting it get this far. If we’re at the bye week and Bortles is that bad after seven games, I think they’ll make a change. I mean, Marrone said as much during mini-camp, right?

What do you think? Is Bortles a good bet to lead the league in interceptions this season? Do you think he’ll be a better decision-maker? Or do you believe Coughlin and Marrone have him on a shorter leash than Bovada expects?
