- Russell Wilson has +1400 odds to win the regular season MVP.
- Wilson has +1800 odds to win the Super Bowl 57 MVP.
- The Denver Broncos have +1600 odds to win Super Bowl 57.
DENVER – Arguably the biggest move of the NFL offseason was Russell Wilson being traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos and it played a huge role in the Broncos Super Bowl odds. Following the trade, Denver went from +2100 odds to win SB57 down to +1200 and eventually settled at +1600 which are the seventh shortest in the league.
With the major shift in the Broncos Super Bowl odds following the acquisition of Wilson, it shows the value that he has on a team. With that, his odds to win both the regular-season MVP and Super Bowl MVP are well worth risking on.
Russell Wilson’s MVP Odds
Wilson is still considered to be one of the elite quarterbacks in the league and in his first season with the Denver Broncos, he could be playing with one of the best teams in his career. Online sportsbooks have taken note of this and listed him with +1600 MVP odds – also the seventh shortest in the league.
He has an elite receiving core in Courtland Sutton and Tim Patrick who each posted 700+ receiving yards last season. Not to mention, Jerry Jeudy will look to bounce back to his 800+ yard rookie season after only playing 10 games in Year 2.
Wilson is coming off of a down season that saw just 3,113 passing yards and 25 touchdowns, however, some factors play into that. First, his offensive line in Seattle allowed the fifth-most sacks at 46, and second, he was also dealing with a hand injury that forced him out of three games.
In the two seasons prior, he was putting up MVP-like numbers at 4,110 yards, 31 touchdowns, and a career-low 13 interceptions in 2019 and 4,212 yards, and 40 touchdowns in 2020. He also helped lead Seattle to 11+ win seasons in those two years. If Wilson can come out and return to the form he was just two seasons ago with his new team, his odds to win the MVP are sure to jump up meaning right now is the most valuable time to get them.
Russell Wilson’s MVP Odds
Moving on to his Super Bowl MVP odds, those sit at +1800 and all of the Broncos season odds indicate them going for a deep playoff run. In addition to their +1600 Super Bowl odds, they have +850 to win the AFC Championship, and +250 to win the AFC West. Each of which are their shortest opening odds since the 2016 season. They are even -150 favorites to make the playoffs.
If Denver does make it to the Super Bowl, Wilson will surely be the frontrunner to win the MVP given the experience he has in the game. In two Super Bowl appearances, Wilson has gone for a total of 453 yards, 4 touchdowns, and just 1 interception for a 117.4 rating.
All in all, if and when the Broncos make the playoffs, these odds will shorten as well and offer much less value than they do right now.
