Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady heads into training camp looking to lead his team to what would be his eighth Super Bowl title. His play hasn't slowed down at all in recent years, yet he is being disrespected when it comes to his odds to take home the 2021 NFL MVP award.
Tom Brady NFL MVP Odds
Brady's odds to be named NFL MVP are set at +1700, according to NFL future odds posted on FanDuel Sportsbook. That ranks behind six other quarterbacks including two players with some risk surrounding them in Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott and Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford.
It isn't like Brady lost all of his offensive weapons or anything. In fact, the Buccaneers are the first title team in the Super Bowl era to return all 22 starters from the last season. He has a variety of playmakers surrounding him on offense highlighted by wide receiver Mike Evans and running back Leonard Fournette.
It's hard to see why Brady is this low in the odds given he is already a 3-time MVP and has made the Pro Bowl 14 times. He has proven that he has what it takes to win football games even if he is in his 40s. Brady is a main reason why the Buccaneers have the second-best odds to win the Super Bowl next season at +650.
At this point of his career, Brady is used to being underestimated and outperforming expectations. There is no reason that he shouldn't be a top-three MVP candidate.
