Patrick Mahomes As The Favorite
A losing player has only been named the Super Bowl MVP once and it was Chuck Howley as a middle linebacker back in 1971. Following that, it makes sense that NFL betting sites have a Kansas City Chiefs player as the overall favorite.
Plus, since a quarterback has won the award in four of the last five years as well as in 11 of the last 15 years, it makes sense that Mahomes is the favorite. Anybody that’s watched football over the last few years knows that Mahomes has an incredibly large impact on his team and barring something drastic if the Chiefs win, Mahomes will be the Super Bowl MVP.
Matthew Stafford Is The Second Option
If the Los Angeles Rams happen to win, most eyes will likely be on Matthew Stafford, but it’s possible that Cooper Kupp is an equally as good option. The last wide receiver to win Super Bowl MVP honors was Julian Edelman in Super Bowl LIII when he had 10 catches for 141 yards.
Kupp has averaged 7.6 catches and 102.5 yards per game this year and is fresh off of a nine-catch, 183-yard performance in the Divisional Round. It may be much more of an even chance between Stafford and Kupp winning the award than the odds would suggest.
Betting on Kupp at +1000 may be a better bet than Stafford at +330.
Betting The Longshots
Those betting on the NFL will find the Chiefs and Rams as the two big favorites for the Super Bowl, but in the event that a team pulls off an upset there are good odds on a few names.
If the Cincinnati Bengals were to win it seems as if Joe Burrow is the overwhelming favorite. He has +1000 odds and Ja’Marr Chase has the next shortest odds on the team at +2000. It’s tough to imagine any other Bengal than Burrow winning the award.
The San Francisco 49ers could be a more open case. Jimmy Garappolo averages 146.0 passing yards per game in his five postseason outings and has a 2-5 TD/INT ratio. For that reason, Deebo Samuel may be a better bet to make despite having much longer odds.
Samuel has the most 150-yard receiving games in the NFL this season but also has doubled as a running back for the team. If they were to win, Samuel will likely have a large impact in multiple different areas.
