Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers capped off yet another incredible season at 13-3 with the No. 1 overall seed in the 2021 NFL Playoff picture with a resounding 35-16 win over the Chicago Bears on the road in Week 17.

While Rodgers' success has been well reflected in the Packers' team record and accomplishments, his individual feats certainly haven't gone unnoticed by the oddsmakers when it comes to the race for this year's NFL MVP award.

Aaron Rodgers MVP Odds 2021

Rodgers has been a slow rise toward the top after trailing the likes of Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson and Russell Wilson throughout different parts of this season, but following Sunday's end to the 2020 NFL regular season, he boasts commanding -3000 odds to win the MVP, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

With an insane total of 4,299 passing yards, 48 passing touchdowns and just 5 interceptions, Rodgers has earned his spot atop the odds mountain in this race. Those 48 TD passes are more than either of his two previous MVP years (2011, 2014) as well, and he even finished the 2020 season with more passing TDs than the Packers' punter J.K. Scott had punts (46).

While this MVP race is all but decided from an odds perspective, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen rounds out the second-best line with +1000, which is just ahead of Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes at +1400.

However, with a line like -3000, Packers fans shouldn't expect to hear anyone other than Rodgers' name called to win this year's NFL MVP.
