Aaron Donald Odds to Win Super Bowl 56 MVP in 2022 Rams vs Bengals on FanDuel Sportsbook (Updated)
Aaron Donald continued to wreak havoc as the heart of the Los Angeles Rams' top-ranked defense this season. The 2021 First Team All-Pro was a nightmare for opposing offensive lines in the regular season, and he's kept up the pressure in the postseason, helping the Rams secure a spot in the Super Bowl.
FanDuel Sportsbook belives Donald has a legit chance at ending the year on a high note and winning Super Bowl LVI MVP.
Aaron Donald Super Bowl MVP Odds
Donald owns +1400 odds to win Super Bowl MVP. That ranks fourth overall and first among defenders, with teammate Von Miller (+3900) the only other defensive player in the top 10.
Though this is a QB-dominated award, there's precedent for defenders winning. A total of 10 Super Bowl MVPs have gone to defensive players, the last of which was given to none other than Miller in 2016 when he was with the Denver Broncos.
Miller finished Super Bowl L with 6 tackles, 2.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles against the Carolina Panthers, which is something Donald could easily replicate on Sunday.
Donald racked up 12.5 sacks, 19 tackles for loss and 4 forced fumbles across 17 regular-season games this year. He's added another 1.5 sacks, 2 TFL and 5 QB hits in three postseason games so far.
The Cincinnati Bengals have plenty of weak spots that Donald could take advantage of. This team allowed the third-most sacks in the league during the regular season, and they gave up a whopping 9 sacks in the Divisional Round alone.
Cincinnati will focus on neutralizing Donald, but Miller and the Rams' other pass-rushers can't be left alone either. If Donald can force a game-changing turnover, he could have a legit claim to MVP.
Bet $5 to win $280 on either team to win Super Bowl 56!
