6 Players With Surprisingly Worse Odds to Win the 2020 NFL MVP Than Tom Brady
By Max Staley
Tom Brady is, by most rational estimations, the greatest quarterback of all time. While the term "G.O.A.T." gets thrown around lightly nowadays, there's simply no other way to describe Brady's unrivaled resume.
And yet, everyone is human. Yes, even the G.O.A.T. In 2019, Brady had his worst season in quite some time, with his numbers being down essentially across the board. He's also not exactly a surefire bet to be returning to the New England Patriots next season.
So it's a bit of a surprise to still see Brady so high atop the odds to win the 2020-21 NFL MVP award, provided by FanDuel Sportsbook. Currently, Brady is available at +2600 to win the award, meaning he's tied with his former mentee Jimmy Garoppolo for the ninth-best odds in the NFL.
With that in mind, here are six quarterbacks that are lower than Brady in the latest odds to win the 2020-21 NFL MVP.
6. Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers (+3200)
5. Matt Ryan, QB, Atlanta Falcons (+3800)
4. Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns (+4400)
3. Kirk Cousins, QB, Minnesota Vikings (+4400)
2. Kyler Murray, QB, Arizona Cardinals (+4400)
1. Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions (+4400)
