Will Tim Tebow Be The Next Taysom Hill?

  • Urban Meyer has announced that the Jaguars plan to use Tim Tebow similarly to the Saints with Taysom Hill.
  • Tim Tebow’s receiving yard total for the 2021 season is set at 89.5.
  • Tim Tebow’s rushing yard total is set at 15.5 yards.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.—With the NFL season inching closer and closer, there have been some questions and speculations as to how exactly the Jacksonville Jaguars plan on using Tim Tebow in their game plan.

Recently, however, it has been made news that Urban Meyer plans to utilize Tim Tebow similarly to how the New Orleans Saints use Taysom Hill in their game plan.

This could be an interesting utilization of Tim Tebow considering that this is his first year playing at the tight end position.

With that, online sportsbooks have different season totals for how Tim Tebow will perform this season.

Tim Tebow Receiving Touchdown Total

  • Over 2 +220
  • Under 2 -300

The fact that bookmakers are setting Tebow’s touchdown total so low should have bettors taking the risk on the Over as it is a very reasonable number. Comparing this back to Taysom Hill’s first season listed as a tight end/wide receiver, Hill shattered the Over having gone for 6 touchdowns.

Something else to take note of here is the fact that the Jaguars tight end situation is not solid enough where Tebow won’t see the field as the other three tight ends on the roster combined for under 400 yards in 2020. That being said, the Over is well worth the risk.

Tim Tebow Receiving Yard Total

  • Over 89.5 +155
  • Under 89.5 -210

Tebow’s receiving yard total on the season is another prime example of being set too low as the Over NFL odds offer a nice payout. Going back to Taysom Hill, Hill has been listed as a TE/WR for two seasons now and has had no problem in hitting the Over in both seasons.

Being that there is no set TE1 for this Jaguars team, many can expect Tebow to filter in and out of the rotation and get his opportunity to make plays on the receiving end. All in all, 89.5 is a realistic target.

  • Over 8 +175
  • Under 8 -240

Tim Tebow’s reception total could be seen as a trickier bet to make for the Over. The Jaguars have revamped their offense this season having brought in plenty of offensive weapons such as Marvin Jones Jr. and Travis Etienne to go along with DJ Chark and Laviska Shenault. Being that there are plenty of proven options that can catch the ball, it might be tough for Tebow to gain his receptions.

Tebow’s situation differs from Taysom Hill being that the Saints receiving core consists of one superstar in Michael Thomas and other receivers that filter in and out. With that Hill has hit the Over in both of his seasons at the position. With there being plenty of reliable pass-catching options, the Under would be the smart bet to make, although if the offense gets rolling throughout the season, the Over could potentially find its way to the surface.

Tim Tebow Rushing Yard Total

Tim Tebow Total Rushing Yards

  • Over 15.5 +135
  • Under 15.5 -180

The Over for Tebow’s rushing total should be one of the smartest bets an NFL bettor could make despite it being listed with longer odds. First off, in all three seasons that Tebow played quarterback, he rushed for over 100 yards in each season. Even if Tebow does not see the field often, he is sure to get the ball in a rushing situation as Taysom Hill did.

Speaking of Hill’s rushing ability, he has hit the Over in all of his seasons in the league as well as rushing for over 150 yards or more in each.

Tim Tebow Touchdown Pass Total

  • Over 1.5 +275
  • Under 1.5 -400

This is another situation where the Over could be risked with no fear. Bettors should not forget that Tebow’s main position is a quarterback. With that said, the Jaguars actually have a leg up when it comes to utilizing Tebow in Taysom Hill fashion as Tebow has better accuracy and has been more efficient having played at the position all throughout college football and for three seasons in the NFL.

That alone should be a strong enough reason to take his Over here as he is bound to get some opportunities throwing the ball.
