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.
Travis Kelce Super Bowl MVP Odds
Travis Kelce's odds to win Super Bowl MVP are sitting at +1500, which has him ranked fourth among all players in Sunday's game.
A tight end has never won the award in NFL history, but describing Kelce as simply "a tight end" is a little reductionist. Kelce finished the regular season ranking No. 5 in the NFL in receptions and No. 2 in receiving yards. He's one of the best receiving threats in the NFL, regardless of position.
It was Tyreek Hill who did the majority of the damage when the Chiefs played the Bucs in Week 12, but Bruce Arians and the Tampa D are well aware of this fact, so they will be keying in on Hill more often.
That could free up some space for Kelce to do real damage and make history by winning the award.
