The Super Bowl LV returns to our screens on February 7, 2021, as we head to the Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, FL, for the Super Bowl 55. As we football fans try to predict who will feature this year, they are also wondering who will be the MVP, if they’re team estimations are correct.
The odds are now available for who will the MVP refer to in their speech & the outright Super Bowl MVP odds. The odds were last updated on January 25, 2021:
Each year there is a panel of 16 highly credited sportswriters that will cast their votes as to who is the MVP at that year's Bowl. In 2001, the NFL introduced electronic fan voting, which now accounts for 20% of the vote with the writers making up the other 80%.
Similar to the odds to make it to Tampa in February, the NFL Super Bowl MVP odds are available well in advance of the day itself. Those players bold enough to wager on Super Bowl MVP betting will be rewarded generously.
Our in-house NFL experts have assessed the field and will make predictions as to which players have a shot at silverware this year. Based on live Super Bowl MVP odds, we’ll give you a depth of insight regarding this year’s Super Bowl.
It will come as no surprise to football fans that the favorite to win the Super Bowl LV MVP award is the same man who won the Super Bowl LIV, the Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes enters the race at 4.5.
The Chiefs star quarterback is closely followed by the Packers starman this season Aaron Rodgers who comes in at 6.25 across the majority of top-tier oddsmakers. The odds are clearly based on the teams most likely to make it to the Super Bowl LV, with the Packers and Chiefs slated to be the most likely teams in attendance.
The Chiefs are the strongest team in the league by some distance. We’ve been saying this since the season started, it’s as if they haven’t really been trying in the regular season and we expect to see them move up a gear or two in these last few games.
Rodgers has been playing the season of his life this year and interestingly for bettors, Rodgers has the highest ticket percentage at 18%, closely followed by the favorite in the NFL Super Bowl MVP odds Mahomes at 10%.
For those bettors that prefer a long shot, or just don’t want to back the favorites in the oddsmaker’s eyes, the rest of the MVP potentials look like this:
Drew Brees - 8.50
Josh Allen - 10.00
Lamar Jackson - 11.00
These are the top 5 contenders. Will it be Mahomes making a repeat of last year, producing a dominant performance to overcome whoever it may be on that February Sunday? Could it be the Saints QB Drew Brees claiming his second MVP award, having won it back at Super Bowl XLIV where the Saints beat the Colts 31-17?
Avoiding a Super Bowl MVP quarterback bet
Although quarterbacks claim the award the most out of any position on the field, history has shown that anyone can claim the top prize. Twelve of the previous 20 awards have gone to QBs, but with some unbelievable receivers playing for teams in contention for the Super Bowl LV - could we see it going to a player in a different position?
Let’s take a look at the odds for players in other positions commanding a position in the Super Bowl MVP odds this year:
Davante Adams - 25.00
Tyreek Hill - 21.00
Travis Kelce - 21.00
The best non-QB odds offer odds as longshots. The Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill is electric and is capable of an MVP performance, which would likely be facilitated by the brilliance of Mahomes distribution - which makes this a real outsider wager.
