2019 NFL MVP Betting Odds And Predictions
2019 NFL MVP Betting Odds – What Player Will Win MVP?
When the 2018 season started, Patrick Mahomes was the Kansas City Chiefs biggest hope to make a jump to a more dynamic offense. Mahomes was no near to be in the conversation for the NFL MVP contention.
After all, he was entering his second year in the league and only his first as a starter. To find Mahomes in the NFL MVP betting odds list the bettors needed to scroll down a bit to see him at +6000 at the start of the season.
More than 5K yards and 50 touchdowns later, Patrick Mahomes would win the NFL MVP award after shocking the league with a fantastic performance. His story is uncanny, but it reminded us that longshots stills collect money in this business.
Well, Mahomes is now the favorite to win the award again. Can he go two for two MVP awards in a row?
Favorite Players To Win The 2019 NFL MVP Award
Let’s take a closer look at the 2019 NFL MVP Betting Odds and the names that will be competing for the MVP award:
Patrick Mahomes +400
Watching Patrick Mahomes throw the football is an absolute pleasure. He is set to become the face of the NFL once Tom Brady decides to retire; if that ever happens.
Mahomes is on the offense with two of the most explosive guys available, WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce. A plus is that he has the edge of having a pretty good connection with both.
Many said the Chiefs offense would miss RB Kareem Hunt after he got cut, but the offense didn’t skip a beat in the second half of the 2018 season. The reason was tailback Damien Williams, who became a more than a reliable weapon.
Mahomes Betting Odds For 2019 Season
What plays against Mahomes is that the theory suggests he won’t throw 50 touchdowns again this season. Only two players in the history of the NFL did it before him.
The other thing is defenses might be a lot more familiar with his playing style. Pat took the league by storm last season, and it would be unheard of if he does again in 2019.
At 4/1 there is value in betting Mahomes to win the MVP again. However, this season doesn’t feel like it’s going to be that easy as it was a year ago.
Pat will probably put great numbers, but those need to combine with a lot of wins for his team. The problem is this season I have the Chiefs taking a step back.
Drew Brees +700
One of the most amazing things in NFL history is that Drew Brees has never won the MVP. After so many years, so many touchdowns, and even a Super Bowl season where the Saints were destroying opponents, Brees still hasn’t put his hands on this award.
Drew enters the 2019 season at 40-years old but still performing at top-level. If he doesn’t win this year, then it is unlikely he ever will.
The Saints have a good enough offense to keep Brees in the conversation from start to finish. Not only does the team has two of the best young offensive weapons in WR Michael Thomas and RB Alvin Kamara, but they just added TE Jared Cook as a weapon. Cook should make quite the impact in the middle of that offense.
Brees Betting Odds For 2019 Season
Brees has the edge over Mahomes in the fact that his team is excellent on both sides of the ball. The Saints have a fantastic offense, sure, but their defense is also good enough to give the team a chance for a top spot in the NFC. Mahomes can’t say the same about the Chiefs defense.
There is a lot of value on taking Brees at 7/1 to win MVP; he has an implied probability of winning of 12%. Not many 40-year old quarterbacks can sling it as he does. Age is not a factor in the discussion.
Aaron Rodgers +750
Last season Aaron Rodgers opened as the betting favorite to win the MVP, and when the year ended, he wasn’t even in the top-10 discussion. Rodgers is set to have a bounce-back year. 2018 sure was far from the best, but there are reasons to think 2019 will be so much better.
Let’s think about it this way, Rodgers has been listening to many experts saying his best days are over. He also caught some steam because the Packers have missed the postseason in the last two season and that’s uncommon for this franchise.
Most importantly, he has a new head coach and play-caller in Matt LeFleur that might be just what he needs. If LeFleur is as good as advertised, then Green Bay’s offense will be one of the most fun to watch in 2019.
Rodgers Betting Odds For 2019 Season
Let’s face it, getting Aaron Rodgers +750 to win the MVP is a massive value play.
He’s not far away from his prime, and if the Packers want to get into the playoffs, he needs to become superman for this offense once again. That’s an MVP caliber QB with lots of value right there.
Andrew Luck +750
Last season Andrew Luck helped his team bounce from a 1-5 start to get into the playoff. If not for the unreal seasons of both Patrick Mahomes and Drew Brees, Andrew Luck should have been the MVP.
If Luck is healthy, he will sling it no matter what. He’s one of the best passers in the game, unafraid to throw the ball down the field. He’s also in an uncanny position since he entered the league.
Will Luck Be Able To Carry The Colts To Victory?
This is finally the year the Colts have a good enough team on both sides of the ball. Not only to win the AFC South but to be fighting for the two spots in the AFC. Luck needs to combine an excellent individual season with plenty of wins for his team, and the MVP conversation might be around him.
One thing not to overlook; Andrew Luck is dealing with a suspicious calf injury at the start of training camp. The Colts haven’t said much about it, but he hasn’t been able to train with his teammates. It’s just something to keep an eye on.
Tom Brady +1000
There are not many sports where a 42-years old player is the Top-5 list of names to win the MVP. Of course, Tom Brady is something different than what we have seen in the past. Brady looks younger at 42 that he did when he was 24, which is insane.
Brady remains a surgeon on the field, playing on an offense that allows him to age properly. The Patriots run the football well, and he gets to throw short passes to his receivers while letting them do most of the job.
Another Year, Another Brady Win?
TB12 has won the MVP award three times, but I can’t see him having another individual monster season to win his fourth. It doesn’t mean the Patriots are going to suck or anything of that kind.
It’s just that the team has other ways to win other than with Brady carrying the entire offense. This is also the first year he won’t have TE Rob Gronkowski, and that is a massive loss.
Baker Mayfield +1300
My editor asked me to do the Top-5 candidates to win the MVP, but I can’t leave without mentioning QB Baker Mayfield. The Browns are set to make a lot of noise this season, and a lot has to do with Baker.
He now has Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. outside the numbers. TE David Njoku is a freak athlete and a nightmare in the Red Zone. And their running game is covered with a solid Nick Chubb.
Mayfield Betting Odds For 2019 Season
I might be overselling Baker, but I think in 2019, Mayfield can have the type of season Mahomes had in 2018. His offense is just too talented for him not to shine. Mayfield at 13/1 to win MVP, I see this one as a steal.
