We’re still over three months from the Chiefs and Lions kicking off the NFL season but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start looking at NFL MVP odds. If you didn’t already think the NFL was a quarterback league, well think again. The top 24 players in the NFL MVP odds are quarterbacks.
Josh Allen and Aaron Rodgers are two of those players. They’ll square off in the first week of the season from MetLife Stadium on Monday Night Football.
Allen Looking to Win MVP Award For First Time
Bills quarterback Josh Allen will be looking to win his first NFL MVP award. He was in contention last year but didn’t have as good of a statistical season as Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. In 16 games last year, Allen threw for 4,283 yards with 35 TDs and 14 INTs. His interception count was a little high and will be something he will like to limit in the 2023 season.
On top of last year’s third place finish, Allen was also the runner up for the MVP award in 2020. 2023 will mark his sixth season in the league, all of which have been spent in Buffalo. Allen has been able to stay healthy during the course of his career. He’s played in at least 16 games in each of the last four seasons.
Everyone knows that Josh Allen can beat you through the air but he’s also never afraid to get the necessary yardage on the ground. Last year he averaged 47.6 rushing yards per game. In an era where mobility has become highly valued at the quarterback position, Allen is a guy that checks all the boxes.
Aaron Rodgers Will Lead a New Era For the Jets
The Jets trade for Aaron Rodgers last month was done to help the team win their first Super Bowl since 1969. Rodgers, 39, won the Super Bowl in 2011 and has won the MVP award three times. He’ll bring a veteran presence to a team that is stacked with young talent.
Two of Rodgers’ MVPs came in the 2020 and 2021 seasons. In 2020, Rodgers led the Packers to a 13-3 season while throwing for 48 touchdowns and only 5 interceptions. He also had a career high 70.7% completion percentage that year.
Rodgers’ play dropped off last year with the Packers. The future Hall of Fame quarterback threw for 217.4 yards per game, which was his lowest total since taking over the reigns in Green Bay in 2008. Now, with Rodgers nearing age 40, it feels as though his MVP window is shrinking.
Rodgers is still tied for the fourth best odds to win the NFL MVP award on BetRivers. If he can put up better numbers than last year while leading the Jets to their first playoff appearance in 13 seasons, he will likely find himself in the MVP discussion.
NFL 2023-2024 MVP Best Betting Odds
Patrick Mahomes is the 2023-2024 NFL MVP favorite. Mahomes won the award for the second time last season. He capped off the season by defeating Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl.
Hurts finished second in NFL MVP voting last season. In games he started last year, the Eagles went 16-2 (Including the playoffs). In addition to his 22 passing touchdowns in the regular season, Hurts also ran for 13. His 13 rushing touchdowns was good for second in the NFL and first among quarterbacks.
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is another candidate to win the NFL MVP award. Burrow is and elite QB with tremendous weapons in Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins. In his last two seasons he’s taken the Bengals to the Super Bowl and the AFC Championship. Burrow can consistently put up big numbers, making himself an intriguing MVP bet for the 2023-2024 season.
