Rodgers leads the pack in the NFL MVP race
The MVP race should be fascinating in 2018. Can Tom Brady have back-to-back MVP seasons at the age of 40?
Will Carson Wentz bounce back from the devastating knee injury that kept him out of the playoffs?
Can Aaron Rodgers lift the Packers after a lost 7-9 season last year?
Here are the odds for 2018 NFL MVP, via Bovada, from the favorites to the longshots.
Aaron Rodgers: 13/2 Tom Brady: 7/1 Carson Wentz: 19/2 Drew Brees: 15/1 Russell Wilson: 15/1
Jimmy Garoppolo: 20/1 Cam Newton: 20/1 Matt Ryan: 20/1 Deshaun Watson: 20/1 Kirk Cousins: 22/1 Jared Goff: 22/1 Philip Rivers: 22/1 Ben Roethlisberger: 25/1 Derek Carr: 28/1 Andrew Luck: 30/1 Dak Prescott: 30/1 Matthew Stafford: 30/1
Le’Veon Bell: 40/1 Todd Gurley: 40/1 David Johnson: 40/1 Marcus Mariota: 40/1 Eli Manning – 50/1
Tom Brady may be 40, but it’s hard to bet against him given his consistently stellar production in recent years. The Rams are loaded for 2018, so quarterback Jared Goff (22/1) and running back Todd Gurley (40/1) will be popular picks among L.A. fans. Carson Wentz (19/2)was running away with the MVP award in 2017 before his injury. If he’s fully healthy, he should be the MVP favorite.
It’s your money, so spend it however you want, but FTW cannot endorse betting on Eli Manning (50/1) under any circumstances. Deshaun Watson (20/1) was stellar as a rookie, but he has surprisingly short odds for a player returning from a major knee injury.
According to Bovada, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has the best odds for winning the 2018 NFL MVP award. GETTY IMAGES
