The MVP award is among the most prestigious for players and for online betting purposes, it’s a fun player prop to wager on. Each year, there are a couple of players that stand out. Last year, it was Aaron Rodgers. He’s back and is disgruntled with his team (front office), so maybe there’s value with some other players? Let’s take a closer look.
Josh Allen went from being a mediocre starting quarterback to an MVP-caliber player in one season. Last year was a monstrous step in the right direction as he threw for 4,544 yards, 37 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. The Buffalo Bills had a 13-3 record because of it and made it all the way to the AFC Championship before falling to the Kansas City Chiefs. Allen is still going to have Stefon Diggs as his partner along with an improved offensive line. Hopefully, the team develops a ground game. If so, this Bills offense could be one of the best in the league, which puts Allen in the MVP conversation.
Patrick Mahomes always seems like a great bet to claim the MVP award and he’s the favorite in the online sportsbook. We know his impact on the Chiefs’ organization and we know he’s going to put up video game-like numbers. In just three seasons with Kansas City, he has thrown for 14,152 yards and 114 touchdowns. There are few teams out that then can limit Mahomes and this offense. Another great season is on the way for Mahomes and this explosive offense.
Recently, it feels like Tom Brady has had a cloud hovering over him at the beginning of every season where experts cast doubts saying that he’s at the end of his career. However, Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl victory and had some MVP-worthy performances throughout the regular season. He is coming into this year with the same talented offense as last year with Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski, and Mike Evans all great pass catchers to help him out. As long as father time doesn’t catch up to him this year, Brady is expected to have another strong season and a fantastic regular season record could boost his chances for the MVP award odds.
Rodgers is the reigning MVP and now that he is 100% back for another season with the Green Bay Packers, he has a solid chance to repeat. The Packers weren’t Super Bowl champions last year but Rodgers was just unstoppable. He had a 71% completion percentage while throwing 48 touchdowns to five interceptions. He has a great No. 1 receiver in Davante Adams and they even got Randall Cobb back, with who he previously had terrific chemistry with Rodgers. If Rodgers puts together similar stats and the Packers finish with the most wins in the NFC again, he’ll have a chance to go back-to-back.
