- Matthew Stafford has the shortest odds of any NFC player to win MVP at +1200.
- Tom Brady is close behind with +1400 betting odds.
- Aaron Rodgers (+1800), Russell Wilson (+1800) and Jameis Winston (+5000) are other possible options.
LAS VEGAS – Aaron Rodgers became the first NFL MVP from the NFC since 2016 a season ago. If the MVP award is going to stay within the conference, there are some betting options for who could do it that make much more sense than anyone else.
Tom Brady may be coming towards the end of his career, but that doesn’t mean he’s declining. Brady threw for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns in his first season with the Bucs.
Plus, he admitted he was doing so while struggling to learn the new playbook.
If Brady truly accomplished everything he did last season while having issues learning the offense, then NFL betting fans could see Brady have an even bigger season than last year. His odds to win the NFL MVP sit at +1400.
Matthew Stafford (+1200) – Los Angeles Rams
Matt Stafford will be making his debut with the Rams this season and is projected to have a monster season. Things in Detroit weren’t going too well and Stafford was often left without many legitimate weapons.
Stafford could potentially start off slow, but having Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and DeSean Jackson as his wideouts should help ease the learning curve.
Plus, having Sean McVay calling the plays can't hurt either.
Aaron Rodgers (+1800) – Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers is one of the biggest question marks entering the new season. Nobody can say for sure whether he will play at all this year, but that just allows bettors to take advantage of the NFL betting sites giving Rodgers such long odds.
Wherever he ends up, if Rodgers is on the field, he’s more likely than not going to put up some impressive numbers.
Whether betting on Rodgers is worth the risk is up to the individual, but just know this could be the best value on the board if he were to announce he was playing.
Russell Wilson (+1800) – Seattle Seahawks
If the Seattle Seahawks are winning games, be ready to hear Russell Wilson’s name in the MVP conversation. The only downfall of Wilson’s game is the offensive system he’s a part of tends to run the ball more heavily than others.
Whenever he’s allowed to air it out, good things happen. Being a part of a winning team is a huge part of being considered for the MVP award and that could potentially be the biggest problem for Wilson.
Jameis Winston (+5000) – New Orleans Saints
As a longshot option, Jameis Winston could be worth a small bet.
The last time Jameis Winston was a starting quarterback he threw for over 5,000 yards and 30 touchdowns. Sure, he also threw 30 interceptions, but being in a new system with a new coach could prove incredibly beneficial for Winston.
There’s ample reasoning to believe that Winston has all of the talent necessary to be in the MVP conversation and that he just needs better decision-making and needs to be put in better positions to succeed.
