Sixth-year NFL veteran Leonard Floyd enjoyed one of the best seasons of his career in 2021. His contributions on the field are one of the reasons why the Los Angeles Rams will face the Cincinnati Bengals at Super Bowl LVI this Sunday.
Even though the 29-year-old outside linebacker may not be a household name, fans might be wondering what are the chances of him ending the weekend as Super Bowl MVP.
Leonard Floyd Super Bowl MVP Odds
Floyd currently has +13000 odds to be named Super Bowl LVI MVP, according to FanDuel Sportsbooks — ranking 14th-best among players who'll be suiting up on Sunday.
Ten defenders have earned Super Bowl MVP honors throughout NFL history. Former Denver Broncos OLB and current Ram Von Miller was the last to accomplish that task, doing so at Super Bowl 50.
Floyd suited up in each of Los Angeles' 17 games this season, finishing with a career-high 70 tackles while also putting up 9.5 sacks, three defended passes, an interception and a forced fumble. He's also recorded seven more tackles and a sack during the Rams' current postseason run.
The Bengals boast one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, having already given up 12 sacks in their last three games. If Floyd can take advantage of the situation this weekend, he could wind up being named Super Bowl LVI MVP.
