The Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo took home the NBA MVP trophy last night, commemorating the incredible year he had in his sixth NBA season. Just a few months prior to that, the Milwaukee Brewers' Christian Yelich won the NL MVP Award for the 2018 MLB season.

Now, it looks like the onus will fall on Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers to make it three straight MVP awards – they don't have a hockey team – for the state of Wisconsin.

Rodgers has already won the NFL MVP Award twice (2011 and 2014), and enters this season with the fifth-best odds to take home the hardware. He is listed at +1200, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, behind only reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes (+600), Andrew Luck (+900), Drew Brees (+1000) and Tom Brady (+1000).

Rodgers had somewhat of a down year by his standards last year, but still managed to throw for 4,442 yards and 25 touchdowns with only two interceptions.

With new Packers' head coach Matt LaFleur at the helm, Rodgers has as good a shot as anyone to win his third NFL MVP Award, and thus the third straight MVP for Wisconsin.
