With The NBA season just ending it’s time to take a look ahead to the NFL season, specifically the odds for MVP right now. We will breakdown some of the favorites and of course some sleeper picks that could make you some money placing a preseason futures bet. 

Josh Allen: +700

Allen will most likely enter this season as the MVP favorite at +700. The Bulls QB is a stud in every way. He has a cannon for an arm, throws for yards and touchdowns, and you’ll often find him at the top of the list in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns for all QBs. Not only does Allen puts up all the stats necessary to win the award, but he also is the leader of one of the best teams in the NFL. If all goes right for Allen this season he could lock up the MVP hardware.

Patrick Mahomes: +800

Mahomes has the second best chance to win the award according to the current odds, and rightfully so. The former MVP has very similar tools as Allen, but is a much flashier player with a few more weapons on his side. The loss of Tyreek Hill will hurt, but Mahomes is savvy enough to find a way to still put up the numbers and lead his team to wins, which will put himself right at the top of the MVP conversation

Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers: +900

Brady and Rodgers are both set at +900 to win MVP for similar reasons. The two old dog QBs are both multiple time MVP who still find a way to be productive in their late thirties and early forties. Both QBs have a few weapons that they heavily rely on, as well as the offensive line to provide them with support to rack up the yardage they need. 

Wild Cards: 

Derrick Henry: +3300

A running back hasn’t won the MVP award since Adrian Peterson over a decade ago, but if anyone can do it it’s Derrick Henry. A beast of a back, Henry not only receives an extremely high amount of reps on Tennessee, but also has the ability to break free for big time touchdown runs to blow open a game. Henry’s physical force can be too much for many NFL defense, which is why he has a sneaky chance to take home the award.

Lamar Jackson: +2200

Jackson is most likely set this low because of the disappointing past season for the Ravens. However, Jackson is too electric of an offensive force to be counted out for MVP. While he doesn’t have the best arm, he has the speed and elusiveness of a running back who has the choice to pass the ball. Lamar diversifies an offensive attack to the point where he can almost single-handedly win you games, which is why he’s a sleeper pick here.
