NFL Betting: Kansas City’s OC believes that Alex Smith is the league’s top QB

NFL betting fans found out that a pretty high price was paid by the Kansas City Chiefs to acquire Alex Smith’s services this offseason, but the team got a steal, according to offensive coordinator Doug Pederson. He believes that the quarterback is the best one in the league.
“Ultimately, every team has to have a quarterback,” Pederson told The Kansas City Star. “I think we have the best in the league.”
And football betting fans can see that considering some of the NFL’s star quarterbacks, that’s a lot of praise given. Price per head services saw that Smith ended seventh in Total QBR – ESPN’s quarterback rating system – last season (70.1). Peyton Manning (84.1) finished first, then came Tom Brady (77.1), Colin Kaepernick (76.8), Smith’s replacement with the 49ers, Matt Ryan (74.5), Aaron Rodgers (72.5) and then Robert Griffin III (71.4).
“There are a lot of great ones, but over time, Alex has proven he can get it done,” Pederson told the newspaper.
“He’s a sharp guy, he brings a wealth of knowledge, he’s experienced, he’s a proven winner the last couple of years, and he needs a team to embrace him.”
NFL betting fans and pay per head sportsbooks saw that Kansas City traded a second-round pick in April’s draft, , and in next year’s draft, a conditional selection that could prove to be high as a second-rounder to the San Francisco 49ers so they can get Smith to be their starting QB.
The former No. 1 overall pick who is a huge favourite with price per head services turned into the NFL’s hottest trade commodity after impressing two years ago, when he was able to lead San Francisco to the NFC Championship Game. Last season Smith started in nine games, but midway through the year he ended up on the sidelines due to a head injury.

That opened the way for Kaepernick, and NFL betting fans saw that he was able to sprint right through it. Kaepernick did such a good job that 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh made him the starter the remainder of the season, and Smith had no choice but to watch from the sidelines as the team was playing in the Super Bowl.
