NFL MVP

The Best Collection of NFL MVP Odds on the Internet

NFL betting comes in all shapes and sizes, with the most popular form of betting coming via point-spread betting and totals betting.

However, for those looking for something different, the NFL futures market could be just what you’re looking for.  One of the more popular NFL futures bets comes in the form of betting on the player you believe will be named NFL MVP (most valuable player) that season.

Betting on who you believe will be named NFL MVP is a very fun, and potentially profitable way, of betting on the NFL at any given point during a season.

How Does NFL MVP Betting Work?

Betting on the player you believe will be named NFL MVP is especially simple and works in the same manner as a futures bet on a team to win the Super Bowl. Essentially, you simply find the player you believe has the best chance to be added to the exclusive list of NFL MVP winners and wager on them accordingly.

An example of how NFL MVP odds may be listed looks as follows:

Odds to win NFL MVP
Patrick Mahomes -500
Aaron Rodgers +400
Josh Allen +1400
Russell Wilson +2000
Ben Roethlisberger +5000
Tom Brady +8000

Using the above example, if you believed Aaron Rodgers would be named NFL MVP, and he wound up taking the hardware back to Titletown – you would be rewarded with a delightful $400 on a $100 wager.

As is the case with anything on the NFL futures market, the NFL MVP odds are constantly adjusting throughout the season based on performance and injury.

NFL MVP Betting Strategies

One thing you will immediately notice when betting on the NFL MVP award is the MVP race is heavily favored to be won by a quarterback. And upon looking at the NFL MVP winners list, you can quickly see why as 12 of the last 13 NFL MVPs were quarterbacks.

In fact, you can even narrow down the field further than that, as the NFL MVP has been awarded to a quarterback or running back in every season but two (Mark Moseley, K, 1982; Lawrence Taylor, LB, 1986).

The 1982 season was also shortened by a work-stoppage, essentially meaning that since the award was moved to a league-wide accomplishment in 1980 that Taylor is the only non-quarterback or running back to win NFL MVP in the last 40 years.

So while it may be enticing to put a small wager on a wide receiver or defensive player to win MVP, just realize that it is extremely uncommon for this to happen.

However, this also gives bettors a bit of an edge.  You’ve essentially narrowed down the entire National Football League to two positions, from there if you are able to properly gauge the QB or RB that will make the strongest push to be named MVP, you’re already way ahead of the game.

Another NFL MVP betting strategy to deploy is circling the QB/RB to have the most impact on a team that figures to be in contention to win the Super Bowl.  Since 2001, only one player has won NFL MVP without their respective team winning at least 11 games that season (Adrian Peterson’s Vikings team went 10-6 in 2012).  A good rule of thumb is, if you think that player will help carry his team to the Super Bowl, a futures bet on them to win MVP is a great opportunity.
