- Aaron Rodgers’ odds for winning the MVP this season are shortening after the Green Bay Packers starting 5-1 this year.
- The quarterback has managed to lead his team to victory despite the injuries to his targets that may force the team to grab a top receiver before the trade deadline.
- With realistic Super Bowl hopes, Rodgers has been putting up some of the best numbers in his career thus far.
NEW YORK - The Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is a top contender to receive the third MVP award of his career even in a season with injuries affecting his team.
With seven weeks of NFL football action played, the 36-year-old has made a case for his name to be in the discussion of MVP of the league as he’s led his team to a 5-1 record.
At the end of 2019, Rodgers was thought to be at the end of his career with the Packers using their first-round pick on his potential replacement but now has found his name at the top of NFL sportsbooks odds.
2020 Regular Season NFL MVP Odds:
- Russell Wilson +120
- Patrick Mahomes +400
- Aaron Rodgers +700
- Tom Brady +700
Rodgers is tied with Tom Brady for his chance to take home the prestigious MVP honor but Rodgers may have a harder route because he is dealing with injuries at wide receiver and tight end.
Davanta Adams has sat out due to injury this season, along with both WR Allen Lazard and TE Josh Degura out for the season already at this point in the year. With the trade deadline approaching, the Packers are looking to boost Rodgers’ targets and many believe he can enhance whatever player is on the field with him.
“That dude’s up there when you look at Rodgers…when you look at who was on the field with him, this further proves that guys, it’s not about the supporting cast because an elite quarterback will elevate the supporting cast around him,” said Greg McElroy, former NFL quarterback.
The Packers (+900) currently have the fifth shortest odds to win Super Bowl 55 and will be happy to add to their targets. Sources have indicated that Houston Texans WR Will Fuller could come and that could be a piece to increase Rodgers’ MVP case.
So far, the quarterback has done a lot with what he has to work with by throwing for 1657 yards and 17 touchdowns with a 113.4 QBR which is the best mark since his last MVP season in 2011.
