Why Matthew Stafford Will Win The 2021 NFL MVP

  • Matthew Stafford currently has the third-shortest odds to win MVP at +525.
  • The Los Angeles Rams are 7-1 and tied atop the NFC West.

LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Rams have a potential MVP winner in Matthew Stafford. He’s currently the third choice on the odds board but could be deserving of being with the favorite.

How The Odds Look Right Now

There are currently two players with odds shorter than Matthew Stafford’s on NFL betting sites to be named the NFL’s MVP, Josh Allen and Tom Brady.


  • Josh Allen +225
  • Tom Brady +500
  • Matthew Stafford +525

Allen, from a statistical standpoint, doesn’t belong as the favorite. He’s 11th in passing yards, tied for fifth in passing touchdowns and has the 10th-best passer rating among starting quarterbacks.

For reference, Stafford is second in passing yards, second in passing touchdowns and second in passer rating while Brady is first in passing yards and touchdowns and fifth in passer rating.

Stafford is also completing a higher percentage of his passes (68.9%) than both Allen and Brady and has the top QBR in the NFL.

How Stafford Passes Allen And Brady

Simply put, Stafford just needs to keep performing at the level he’s been playing at. His numbers speak for themselves and he has also led his team to be 7-1 on the season and tied atop the NFC West.

Those betting on the Rams and siding with Stafford will likely need the Rams to win their division.

The NFC West was considered to be the toughest division in the NFL and being the quarterback on the division’s winning team could be a large selling point in the MVP race.

There’s a chance that Stafford finishes the season with the most passing yards, most passing touchdowns, highest passer rating and highest QBR while also having one of the best records in the NFL. If that is the case he should unanimously win MVP, but even if he only checks a few of the boxes he’s well in the race.
