Outside of the Lombardi Trophy itself, one of the most prestigious awards on the line for this week's Kansas City Chiefs vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers showdown is the Super Bowl MVP award.

FanDuel Sportsbook has Super Bowl MVP odds available for a ton of players. One interesting candidate to take home the hardware if Bucs' wide receiver Chris Godwin.

Godwin's odds to win Super Bowl MVP are sitting at +3400, tying him for the sixth-best odds among all players alongside his teammate Mike Evans.

This award tends to go to quarterbacks, but wide receivers have won two of the past 12 Super Bowl MVPs. That includes 2019's Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman, who took home the hardware while catching passes from Godwin's current QB, Tom Brady.

And there's plenty of reason to believe Godwin can be the second wideout in the past three seasons to win Super Bowl MVP.

While the Chiefs are dominant against outside wide receivers, they really struggle against slot WRs. In the second half of the season, Kansas City surrendered 8.3 yards per attempt to the slot compared to 7.2 YPA to receivers lined up outside.

That could mean big things for Godwin, who serves as Tampa Bay's preferred option out of the slot. He's also become Brady's favorite target in recent weeks, averaging a whopping 8.8 targets per game over his last five, which is the most on the Bucs during that span.

Likely to see plenty of volume in a matchup that plays to his strengths, Godwin is an awesome outside-of-the-box pick for Super Bowl MVP.
