In fact, Wentz (+1400) is currently the most-bet player to win the NFL MVP award, edging out the likes of Andrew Luck, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Saquon Barkley and even Aaron Rodgers.
This clearly indicates that fans are confident in Wentz, who currently has the sixth-best odds to win the award. It's also interesting to see him this high, considering Wentz was largely underwhelming in 2018. Wentz threw for 3,074 yards and 21 touchdowns in 11 games last season, and he'll certainly have to improve upon those totals if he hopes to take home the trophy.
Following Wentz is Luck (+900), who has the second-best odds to win the MVP award. Luck was impressive in his long-awaited return from a shoulder injury last season, throwing for 4,593 yards and 39 touchdowns.
Darnold (+8000) is currently the third-most bet player, following a rookie season where he occasionally showed flashes of greatness. Still, he only threw for 2,865 yards and 17 touchdowns last season.
Barkley (+3400) is the only non-QB on this list, which should indicate just how talented he is. Even so, Adrian Peterson's 2012 MVP season makes him the only RB to win the award since 2007, so Barkley likely has a long road ahead of him.
While Patrick Mahomes (+300) remains the betting favorite to win MVP, it wouldn't be a shock to see some hot names like Luck or Wentz take home the trophy in 2019.
