Career NFL stars, or one game wonders, the first 51 Super Bowl MVP Awards cover a broad spectrum of players and positions. Some earn recognition for stout play on defense, many more claim the prize by excelling on offense, and one stands alone due to stellar Special Team play. Another MVP will be added after the Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots SB LII showdown at 6:30 PM ET on February 4, 2018..
Super Bowl Most Valuable Player History
LeBron James has three NBA Final MVP trophies, Sidney Crosby has two NHL Stanley Cup Final MVP nods, and no player has won a MLB World Series MVP more than once since Reggie Jackson double dipped back in 1973. Tom Brady, with four, is a big part of the illustrious NFL Super Bowl MVP list.

Quartebacks Dominate Super Bowl MVP Betting
Wagered on every year since 1997, as an annual Super Bowl award, the Most Valuable Player prop is one of the longest standing NFL Championship betting options. Following a still successful run, on betting boards across Las Vegas, the SB MVP bet was one the first props posted at sportsbooks when they arrived online over two decades ago. Still as popular as ever, even the most casual fans have an opinion on who should be anointed the best of the best after the NFL title fight ends.
Super Bowl battles can elevate players to superstar status – or reduce them to mere mortals. Stud NFL Championship players like Bart Starr, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana and Tom Brady are the former, while coming up empty at the Big Dance relegates regular seasons stars like Fran Tarkenton and Jim Kelly to the latter group. Starr, Bradshaw, Montana and Brady own 11 of the 51 SB MVP awards while Tarkenton and Kelly lament a combined eight Super Bowls losses as starting pivots.

Tom Brady Stands Above All As Super Bowl MVP
Strong testament to the New England Patriots franchise, from owner Robert Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick, to the players around him, Tom Brady continues to re-write NFL record books. While he has many regular season marks, Captain America shines brightest during the NFL playoffs and on Super Bowl Sunday. New York Yankees legend Reggie Jackson is known as Mr. October so Tom Brady must be Mr. February as he is the top favorite to claim his fifth Super Bowl MVP award.
Beyond the great pivots, who have taken the vast majority of the SB MVP limelight, dogs do have their day on Super Bowl Sunday. Following their crushing defeat of heavy favorite Carolina (SB 50) Denver Broncos bruising linebacker Von Miller joined lessor know Seattle Seahawks LB Malcolm Smith (SB 48) as the second MVP winners from the defense during a three year span. Miller was priced at (+1200) while Jenkins was lumped into the “FIELD” group with a +2000 money line.
One And Only: Dallas Cowboys LB Chuck Howley is the MVP from a non-winning team – SB V.

If a Patriots player is the 2018 SB MVP, New England will join the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers who own a record six awards. Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles can join Peyton Manning and Phil Simms as the only players with a SB MVP and a Pro Bowl MVP honour. After two nods in four years – we suggest looking away from a defensive player. No tight end or kicker has even been SB MVP. A monster day from TE Rob Gronkowski or PK Stephen Gostkowski could change that.
Greatness, across any genre, has different measuring sticks. A Busboy, who can clean and reset a Las Vegas Buffet dining room in under 30 minutes, is great. An auto mechanic, who doesn’t screw you on repairs, is also great. In a league of their own, top rated CSB bookmakers treat their clients like Most Valuable Punters. Great odds, hundreds of props, plus fantastic player rewards, elevate online sportsbooks well above Canadian sports lottery kiosks. Experience greatness today.
You Are Special: GB Packers KR Desmond Howard (SB 31) is the only Special Team SB MVP.
MVP Betting Bottom Line: RB Terrell Davis in 1998 (SB 32) and WR Hines Ward in 2006 (SB 40) were the last running back and wide receiver to earn a SB MVP. Betting on the Super Bowl MVP can be a dicey proposition so modest wagers are suggested. That should be easy to do though as a small wager, on any player other then Tom Brady, will deliver a big return. Enjoy Super Bowl LII.
