To this day, to win a Super Bowl, the team has to have a good quarterback. Otherwise, it would be impossible to win, no matter how good the defense is.
It’s hard to compare between eras, even in NFL draft odds, as football rules have changed over the years, protecting more and more quarterbacks.
However, in all eras, they had excellent quarterbacks. We present you with the five best quarterbacks in history that have made many NFL bettors win bets.
5. Johnny Unitas
Unitas was the best quarterback of his era. He won four Super Bowls with the Colts and was the best QB since he started in 1956 as a rookie until 1967. He pioneered modern offences and had a streak of 47 straight games with at least one touchdown pass.
4. Aaron Rodgers
Aaron Rodgers is one of the most talented quarterbacks in NFL history. In total, he has broken two records in passing statistics, but unfortunately, he has only had one Super Bowl win with Green Bay.
3. Joe Montana
Joe could not miss this top. Before the new era of quarterbacks, Montana was considered the best in history. In the Playoffs from 1988 to 1990, he won two championships, all with a passer rating greater than 100 and a TD/INT ratio of 22 to 2. In addition, he won a Super Bowl with the 49ers.
2. Peyton Manning
Manning is a machine. His ability to read the opposition’s defense is impressive, and he always changes the play. His five MVPs are a record; no one has been able to beat him. He would be the number one spot, but that’s from.
1. Tom Brady
The absolute king, the best of all. Of course, the first place goes to Tom Brady. He won his seventh ring at the age of 43 with the Bucs, his current team. Though recently retired, he is the oldest player to get an MVP at 43 in a Super Bowl.

Online NFL Football Betting Tips
If you haven’t won any bets as a result of the heroics of the stars mentioned above, here is how you can adapt your betting for positive results:
Read the Local Papers/Visit Dedicated Team Websites: NFL preseason is one time of the year where ‘coach-speak’ is extremely important. It’s also the time of year when the coaches are willing to reveal their game plans in their entirety.
By perusing the local papers, it’s possible to gauge a coach’s philosophy for any given game and learn about the expected player rotations. Knowing who will be on the field in the 2nd half, when the point spread outcome is likely to be decided, is crucial.
Check Out the Quarterback Rotations: Look to bet on teams with experienced veterans playing against 3rd and 4th string defenses in the 2nd half of preseason games. Situations exist every week where QBs with starting experience in the NFL will have the opportunity to show their stuff against inferior defenders. These QBs should be able to move the ball down the field with relative consistency.
Look to bet against teams playing rookie quarterbacks in the 2nd half. These young QBs are often late-round picks and undrafted free agents, not the cream of the quarterbacking crop. Their unfamiliarity with the offensive scheme and the speed of NFL defenders often give rookie QBs trouble.
Don’t Forget the Totals: A pair of coaches looking to develop the running game and/or test inexperienced QBs provide solid Under bets. On the other hand, when you find two coaches looking to test the passing game and have experience at the backup QB position, the Over is undoubtedly the way to look.
August can be a very profitable month for NFL bettors if you follow these simple guidelines. Even in supposedly ‘meaningless’ preseason games, there are plenty of spots where the informed bettor can boost his bankroll before the regular season begins.
