Big Shakeup in NFL MVP Odds
By Zach Brunner
Following a couple of big losses and surprise performances in Week 11, there has been a major shakeup in the latest NFL MVP odds. Aaron Rodgers, Kyler Murray, and Tom Brady lost, while Patrick Mahomes won on Sunday Night Football, which put him as the outright frontrunner in the NFL MVP race.
FanDuel Sportsbook's betting odds have Mahomes as the -125 favorite to win his second MVP. This is a big jump from the +175 odds he had last week. In primetime, Mahomes passed for 348 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. More importantly, he led his team on a game-winning drive that he made look easy. Simply, he looked like an MVP.
It already seems like forever ago, but Russell Wilson got a primetime win of his own in Week 11, defeating the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday. Despite this, he saw his odds drop to +350, making it more unlikely for him to become the favorite like he once was.
Rounding out the top five in NFL MVP odds is Rodgers (+500), Murray (+1400), and Ben Roethlisberger (+2000), who leads the only remaining undefeated team. Should the Pittsburgh Steelers keep winning, he is a prime target to rise in the odds.
