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. And are updating their records after each week of the season.
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 37-13-1 ATS, covering in 72.5% of his career starts after the Broncos (-6) beat the Jaguars 23-13 in Week 2.
Bridgewater won the job over Drew Lock in Broncos camp. As an NFL starter, Bridgewater played for the Vikings, Saints and Panthers before moving to Denver. He is 28-23 mark outright his 51 NFL starts.

Using our system of betting $100 on Bridgewater ATS each week of his career with the industry standard -110 line per point-spread bet available at most sportsbooks and betting sites, those who backed Bridgewater weekly since his 2014 debut are up a hefty $2,063.30. A stellar return.
The other “TB” is pretty good, too. Tom Brady is 202-139-8 ATS for the Patriots and Bucs after he and Tampa Bay (-13) flatted the Falcons 45-28 in Week 2. Would-be weekly Brady backers are up $4,461.80 using the same formula since Brady made his first start after replacing Drew Bledsoe 20 years next week.
Not all spreads are created equally. For this project, we used the archived weekly Las Vegas consensus lines, according to Pro Football Reference.
