It's becoming quite a trend, but Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson turned in another brilliant performance in prime time. His 19-point second half comeback against the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football was just the latest example.

Despite the brilliant effort, the exciting dual-threat quarterback is still being disrespected by his odds to win the NFL's MVP award on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Lamar Jackson MVP Odds

Heading into the season, Jackson ranked just eighth on the list with +1700 odds. Those odds even saw a dip to 11th (+2000) despite the Ravens getting off to a 2-1 start. As of Tuesday morning, Jackson still hasn't cracked the top five as he still ranks eighth with his +1200 mark.

Simply put, Jackson's performances should have him closer to the top of this list. The 2019 MVP showed off his passing skills on Monday Night, scorching the Colts for a franchise-record 442 passing yards along with four touchdowns in the largest comeback of his career.

On the year, Jackson ranks fifth in the league with 1,519 passing yards and eighth in rushing yards (341), as a quarterback. His 1,860 total yards showing him out-gaining 17 different NFL offenses as a whole and leading the Ravens to the league's best offensive attack at 440.6 yards per game.

Jackson and his Ravens rank with the fifth-best odds (+1200) to win Super Bowl 56 on FanDuel Sportsbook.
