Aaron Rodgers shocked the sports and entertainment worlds last night, announcing he would be a guest host on Jeopardy! sometime in the near future.

The exciting news got the oddsmakers thinking...who else might play guest host as the longtime game show searches to permanently fill the iconic shoes of Jeopardy! late host Alex Trebek.

SportsBetting.ag came up with a list of current and former NFL players, and it's pretty spot on.

Three affable personalities are at the top of the board as Hines Ward, Tony Romo and Peyton Manning lead the choices.

Mr. Harvard, Ryan Fitzpatrick, is tied for the third-best odds, and the only player to ever pen a perfect score on the Wonderlic test, punter Pat McInally, has 50/1 odds.

The Washington Football Team was Trebek's favorite squad, and there are a trio of QBs from that franchise on the list.
