KANSAS CITY, MO. – Through seven weeks of play, the NFL’s MVP race has begun to take shape as some of the best players in the NFL have turned in some of the best performances of the season thus far. A quarterback has won the NFL MVP award every year since 2013 and that trend will likely extend into this year.
The latest betting odds for the 2021 NFL MVP race show that the quarterbacks in the MVP race have already separated themselves from the pack.
2020 NFL Regular Season MVP Odds
- Russell Wilson -110
- Aaron Rodgers +450
- Patrick Mahomes +450
- Tom Brady +1200
- Kyler Murray +1600
- Lamar Jackson +1600
Russel Wilson (-110)
Despite Russell Wilson’s 3 interception game in a loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday Night Football, he remains the favorite to win the NFL’s MVP award by the end of the season with -110 odds.
Russell Wilson has been the most dangerous passer in the league this year, but heading into the second half of the regular season he’ll have to continue to carry the Seattle Seahawks to fight off a field that features players like Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady, and Lamar Jackson.
Patrick Mahomes (+450)
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes in particular has the best chance to unseat Russell Wilson and win his second MVP award in three years.
Mahomes +450 odds are a good value bet currently. While Mahomes may not be leading the lead in passing yards his 1,899 are still top 10 in the NFL. His 16 touchdowns passes are the fourth-most in the league and he’s only thrown one interception this season.
The Chiefs remaining schedule should also give Mahomes an edge over Russell Wilson as the Las Vegas Raiders, New Orleans Saints, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the only three teams with a winning record left for the Chiefs to play.
With an easy schedule on the horizon plus a couple of big matchups sprinkled in, if Mahomes can continue this level of play while still manufacturing wins he’ll be the favorite to
win the MVP award by Week 12, so now might be the best time to take the +450 odds on the reigning Super Bowl MVP.
Mahomes path to eclipsing Wilson should get a little bit easier as the Seahawks will have to face each team in an NFC West division that has a combined record of 18-8.
All things considered both Russell Wilson and Patrick Mahomes have been playing lights out football and going into the second half of the NFL season and beyond these two will pull away from the rest of the odds board making this a two-man race for the MVP award.
