With Super Bowl LV getting closer by the day, fans are anxiously anticipating how this clash between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers will end.

One major aspect of the championship game is Super Bowl MVP, which usually honors a player from the winning team. It's no surprise that Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is favored to win MVP at -105, per FanDuel Sportsbook's Super Bowl MVP odds, with his team the favorite over the Bucs.

But there's a few reasons Mahomes could miss out on MVP, giving possible reason to consider The Field in the Patrick Mahomes (-105) v The Field (-115) Super Bowl MVP prop bet.

As basically the face of the league, "Mahomes fatigue" is likely setting in for at least some NFL fans and media personnel, which could hurt his chances, even if he has a big day.

Then there's the possibility that one of Mahomes' weapons, like Tyreek Hill or Travis Kelce, has a standout performance. Recent wide receivers have won Super Bowl MVP by making a highlight play (usually a touchdown) and totaling 100-plus yards. Both Hill and Kelce could easily reach those numbers, making them solid non-Mahomes options.

Also, we can't forget that Tom Brady and the Bucs have a real chance of winning this game, which would clear an easy path for the 43-year-old QB to take home MVP.

Don't sleep on a defender winning Super Bowl MVP, either. Brady has struggled win INTs this season, and if a Chiefs player earns a couple of interceptions or a big pick-6, that's been a recipe for defensive backs to win this award.

The Chiefs' depleted offensive line could open the door for a Tampa pass rusher to rack up sacks and quiet Mahomes, giving them a real chance at MVP honors if the Buccaneers win.

There's so many legitimate non-Mahomes threats to win Super Bowl MVP, from his teammates to his QB counterpart, that The Field has a legit chance at earning the award over the Chiefs' star on Sunday.
