It’s easy for everyone to understand what you’re betting on here, no spreads required. Super Bowl MVP betting odds are very straightforward. You place the bet on an individual player, handicapped by his likelihood of winning the award.
Quarterbacks are often favored as to win the award, as they have the ball in their hands the most and are rewarded with being the face of their franchise. Still, sports bettors can win larger sums of money when taking a longshot for the Super Bowl MVP. No matter who wins the award, other prop bets exist regarding this award. Before the winner is decided, bettors can wager on who the award winner will thank first and more. But for the Super Bowl MVP award itself, the smart idea is to look at the quarterbacks.

Super Bowl MVPs That Were Not Quarterbacks
So, let’s state the obvious… when betting on the Super Bowl, the MVP generally goes to the quarterback of the winning team. It takes a truly special performance to change that like Julian Edelman in 2019. He won the award despite being +2000 on the Super Bowl MVP odds before the game started. After quarterbacks, the next logical place to look would theoretically be running back, but it hasn’t shaken out that way. The last running back to win the Super Bowl MVP award was Terrell Davis in 1998, and he was so incredibly dominant that giving the award to anyone else would have been ludicrous. Five wide receivers have won the award since Davis hoisted it in 1998. Defensive players, however, are another story.
How Many Defensive Players Have Won The Super Bowl MVP?
Defensive players, one would think, have an even lower chance to win the award. However, over the years, several defensive players have won the Super Bowl MVP. The most recent was Broncos linebacker Von Miller, who turned in a dominating performance in Super Bowl 50 as a pass rusher. Since 2000, four defensive players have won the award: Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dexter Jackson, Seattle Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith, and Miller.
