Despite his recent social media breakup with the Cardinals, Kyler Murray is still the favorite to be Arizona’s starting quarterback in 2022.

A prop bet at the BetMGM sportsbook lists Murray at -1000 to take the first snap in Week 1 of the regular season with “any other quarterback” listed at +550.

As of Wednesday morning, Murray had received 83 percent of the tickets and 79 percent of the total handle.

Earlier this month, Murray unfollowed the Cardinals on social media and took down all photos with logos of the team from his Instagram account. Some media outlets speculated his actions indicated there was friction between him and the team due to an early playoff exit, which Murray later called “nonsense.”

Murray, 24, is entering the final year of a four-year contract. The No. 1 overall pick of the 2019 draft is a two-time Pro Bowl selection with 11,480 passing yards, 70 touchdowns and 34 interceptions in 46 starts.
