2022 NFL MVP ODDS AT
Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs: -750 (bet $10 to win $11.33 total)
Joe Burrow, Bengals: +750 (bet $10 to win $85 total)
Josh Allen, Bills: +1000 (bet $10 to win $110 total)
Jalen Hurts, Eagles: +1200 (bet $10 to win $130 total)
Justin Jefferson, Vikings: +10000 (bet $10 to win $1,010 total)
Why Bengals-Chiefs line has shifted
Shannon Sharpe explains why the line moved drastically.
At -750, Mahomes is the runaway favorite. He led the NFL with 5,250 passing yards and 41 touchdown passes. He was the near-unanimous choice for first-team All-Pro QB. The one-time winner is more than likely taking home another MVP trophy this season. Will he have another Lombardi Trophy to go along with it?
Hurts (+1200) was a strong contender for most of the season, but once he missed a few games because of the shoulder injury, his candidacy was effectively over. Hurts threw for 3,701 yards and ran for 760 with 35 combined touchdowns.
Burrow (+750), is the second-best favorite and a scorching end to the season greatly reduced his odds. Joe Cool threw for 4,475 yards and 29 touchdowns and was second in the NFL in completion percentage (68.3%).
Allen (+1000) was tied withfor most interceptions thrown, yet he finds himself with the third-best odds for MVP. He threw for 4,283 yards and 35 TDs and ran for 762 yards, third among quarterbacks.
Jefferson (+10000) led the NFL with 128 catches and 1,809 yards receiving and was a unanimous All-Pro selection. He is even a longer shot than the odds indicate as a wide receiver has never won the award. Could this be the year that changes?
quarterback won the award in 2020-21 and has won it four times overall.
