Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes enters season as NFL MVP favorite, but Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen drawing most bets

While Aaron Rodgers and Patrick Mahomes are favorites for the NFL MVP award, Josh Allen is getting the most support from sportsbooks across the country.
The fourth-year Buffalo Bills quarterback has attracted more bets on Allen to win the Associated Press MVP award that any other player at multiple betting sites. This includes a $10,000 wager at 13-1 odds with Caesars Sportsbook, Indiana, and a $10,000 wager at Caesars Sportsbook, Indiana. Allen is the biggest MVP liability at BetMGM, drawing nearly twice the number of bets than Mahomes, who is the consensus favorite.

Caesars Sportsbook lists Mahomes, the Chiefs' MVP, at 5-1. Rodgers, the reigning MVP, has chosen to return to Green Bay Packers this year. Allen is next at 10-1. Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are each 12-1. Lamar Jackson of Baltimore and Dak Prescott from Dallas are 16-1. Russell Wilson and Matthew Stafford, both from Seattle, are 18-1.

After the acquisition of Julio Jones, wide receiver for Tennessee Titans, Ryan Tannehill, the SuperBook at Westgate Las Vegas saw a surge in betting interest. Tannehill's SuperBook odds increased from 80-1 to 30%.

At Caesars, Derrick Henry, Titans running back, has the best odds at 50-1. The award has been won eight times by a quarterback. Adrian Peterson, a running back with the Minnesota Vikings, was the last non-quarterback winner of the award.

Aaron Donald, Rams defensive lineman, has the best odds at 125-1.

John Murray, the executive director of SuperBook, stated that "we're fine writing bets about running backs, receivers or defensive player to win the MVP." We're happy to place a bet on a non-quarterback winning these awards.

Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback (7-2) is the favourite for Offensive rookie of the Year. Mac Jones (9-9) is close behind.

Prescott is the favourite to win Comeback Player Of The Year at 11-10. At Caesars Sportsbook, the Cleveland Browns' Kevin Stefanski is the favorite for Coach of the year at 13-1.
