Super Bowl LVII MVP Odds

The Super Bowl, the biggest event in sports betting, is finally here, and with it comes plenty of speculation about the outcome. For bettors out there, the Super Bowl offers more betting opportunities than they could possibly imagine. 

These betting markets extend far beyond which team will win the game. One of the most popular betting markets this Sunday will be wagering on who will walk away as the game’s MVP.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles are the two best teams in the NFL and have been for much of the season. Each team is loaded with talent top to bottom, and that can make it difficult to predict who will emerge as the game’s most valuable player. Still, there are four names, in particular, that stand above the rest. Let’s take a look at the players making the best case to be Super Bowl XLVII MVP.

Jalen Hurts (+130)

Beyond being one of the contenders for the Super Bowl MVP award, Hurts may very well be the front-runner for the regular season MVP as well. Though he missed a pair of games with a shoulder injury, there is little question that he was the man when he was in the lineup for the Eagles.

The team went 14-1 with him as a starter and that is just the beginning. Through the air, he completed 66.5% of his passes for just over 3,700 yards and 22 touchdowns while throwing just 6 interceptions. He was equally dangerous with his feet, rushing for 760 yards and an incredible 13 touchdowns.

For the Eagles to win on Sunday, he is going to need to be at his best. For him to claim the MVP award, he is going to have to be what he’s been all year: a dual threat. Given how dynamic the Eagles offense has looked during the year, it is not out of the realm of possibility to expect Hurts – and the Eagles – to walk away victorious on Sunday.

There are other threats on the Eagles offense capable of having a huge day (see our fourth candidate, AJ Brown). They’re all, however, dependent on what Hurts brings to the table. That makes him one of the favorites on Sunday.

Patrick Mahomes (+125)

On the other side of the equation is the single most dangerous player that the Chiefs have and arguably the best player in all of football. Everyone is more than familiar with what Mahomes can do on any given Sunday and he already has a Super Bowl championship to his name.

The Chiefs have been the team to beat in the AFC for five straight seasons now and that does not look to change any time soon. This year, Mahomes also has the added motivation of solidifying his already impressive legacy by adding a second Super Bowl championship.

Mahomes is coming off of yet another ridiculous statistical season. He completed more than 67% of his attempts for an insane 5,250 yards and 41 touchdowns to just 12 interceptions. He has shown time and again that he has the capacity to create something out of nothing and turn any play into a scoring one.

Given his last Super Bowl appearance – a loss to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Mahomes has all the motivation in the world to make things different. The safest bet out there is that Mahomes will be on his game and put the Chiefs in the best position to win. All of which means that he is more than likely going to walk away as the game’s MVP

Travis Kelce +1200

For the other two major contenders, we go to the premier receiving weapons in either lineup, and is no more dangerous weapon for Kansas City than their long-time tight end; Travis Kelce. He’s taken his play to another level during this playoff run and continues to make his case for being the best receiving tight end of all time.

Where to start with his 2022 performance? He finished third among all pass catchers across the NFL in receptions with 110. His 1,338 yards were eighth in the league and his 12 touchdowns placed him second. The fact that he is a tight end only underscores just how ridiculous his production is.

He is already fourth in the history of the league in receiving yards and receptions at the position and doesn’t look to be stopping anytime soon. The Super Bowl is Kelce’s chance to show that he is arguably the most valuable Chief and perhaps the most valuable tight end of all time.

Kelce is the X-Factor for the Kansas City offense. You will see his name as a favorite among the potential options for first touchdown scored and with good reason. Despite having longer odds at +1200, Kelce has every chance to take home the Super Bowl MVP with a Chiefs victory.

AJ Brown +1500

The first among the true dark horse candidates, Brown had his official coming out party in 2022 after three years of looking like he could be a legitimate top receiver in the NFL. He proved to be an unmatched weapon the Eagles have been missing as a dominant receiver on the outside.

Brown set career-marks in receptions (88) and yards (1,496) while tying his career-best touchdown total with 11. His yards and touchdowns landed in the top five league-wide in each category and officially launched him into the top tier of receivers in the game.

The focus will no doubt be on Hurts from the opening snap, but if Brown can make himself a mismatch nightmare, he could continue his breakout season on the biggest stage of them all. If that happens, it will be hard to argue against him as MVP.

There is one piece of information worth noting, especially when it comes to Brown. In the last five Super Bowls, a receiver has won the MVP twice – Julian Edelman for the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LIII and Cooper Kupp last year in Super Bowl LVI. Brown has the talent to be a dominant force on the biggest stage, especially if the game turns into a shootout.
