Betting on the regular-season MVP award might be different than betting on each NFL game, but that doesn’t mean that it is any more difficult.
The odds that you see for this betting option are going to look very similar to moneyline betting odds.
When you first pull up the list of NFL regular season MVP odds, you are going to see a long list of players listed.
That list is going to shrink as the season move along, and there will usually be just a handful of players left by the final few weeks of the season.
When the NFL regular season odds first open up, most of the betting favorites are going to be quarterbacks.
Players that play other positions will be included in this award, but they are already starting off with a slight disadvantage.
The odds next to the player with this type of bet are going to tell you how much money you can win if you make a wager of $100.
The odds at BetUS are going to list the betting favorites first, and then the rest of the players are going to fall in line.
This is easier to explain when looking at an example so here are some of the regular season MVP betting odds that you might see:
- Aaron Rodgers +450
- Tom Brady +600
- Patrick Mahomes +700
- Josh Allen +700
- Jonathan Taylor +1000
As the season moves along, there could be a player that eventually moves to (-) odds, and that will make them the overwhelming favorite. That won’t be the case at first, and there will be a nice payout regardless of which player you wager on.
If you were to make a $100 bet on Tom Brady to win the MVP Award, then that would have a payout of $600 if he were to be named league MVP.
Some Props Might Be Available
Betting on the NFL regular season MVP is already a unique type of wager of its own, but you can still find some prop betting options as well.
These prop betting odds are going to be related to the regular-season MVP award, but the odds will be much different.
It’s hard to predict what prop betting options will be available each year from BetUS, but focusing on the position or conference of the MVP is usually a solid option.
This can also give you some insurance if you are able to hit a prop bet, but don’t actually pick the regular season MVP winner.
