3 Best Super Bowl MVP Bets to Make Right Now (Franchise Quarterbacks Lead the Favorites)
Super Bowl 57 is right around the corner and sports bettors are already putting in the research to find the best prop bets available on the market. However, the options are scarce as no one knows which two teams will be competing yet. That will be determined via the Conference Championship games.
Odds have been released for Super Bowl MVP on FanDuel Sportsbook ahead of kickoff times on Sunday, though. Backing a player now lines up as an opportunity to get the best odds available. After all, those odds will undoubtedly shift once the field is shortened from four teams down to two teams.
With that being said, here's a look at three of the best Super Bowl MVP odds to bet on right now.
Super Bowl MVP Odds
1. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles (+290)
Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts is the current Super Bowl MVP favorite and for good reason. He picked apart the New York Giants in a 38-7 Divisional Round win with 154 passing yards, 34 rushing yards and 3 total touchdowns. The third-year pro has now led the Eagles to a win in 15 of his 16 starts this season and remains the focal point of one of the NFL's highest-scoring offenses. Backing a quarterback is never a bad idea, either, as 31 of the 56 Super Bowl MVPs have come from the position. That includes nine of the last 13 winners. A win by the Eagles in the NFC Championship game would cause these odds to drop significantly. Check out all Jalen Hurts prop bets at FanDuel Sportsbook for more odds.
2. Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals (+350)
Joe Burrow finds himself in the same boat as Jalen Hurts. The Cincinnati quarterback's odds will never be this high again if he finds a way to beat Patrick Mahomes for the fourth time in his young career. Burrow has passed for multiple touchdowns in 12 of his 19 starts this season and has also racked up five 300-yard passing games. The Bengals' high-flying offense is built around his throwing arm and his ability to stay calm within the pocket. In Super Bowl 56, Burrow completed 22 of his 33 pass attempts for 263 yards and 1 touchdown. Putting up a similar performance against a dangerous Philadelphia/San Francisco defense would likely earn him the honor of MVP.
3. Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs (+2800)
A tight end has yet to be named Super Bowl MVP, but Travis Kelce is used to setting records. He recently became the fastest tight end to surpass 10,000 career receiving yards (140 games) and owns the NFL record for most 1,000-yard receiving seasons at the position (7). He destroyed the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round, logging 98 yards and 2 touchdowns on 14 receptions. Momentum is building for yet another stellar Super Bowl performance from the four-time All-Pro. Kelce has tallied 176 yards and 1 touchdown on 16 receptions across two appearances in the big game. It's hard to pass on a player of that caliber at +2800 odds.
