Miles Sanders Super Bowl 57 MVP Odds: Latest Super Bowl 2023 MVP Odds

Miles Sanders current Super Bowl MVP odds are . Running backs have won the Super Bowl MVP award seven times, but it hasn’t happened since Terrell Davis earned the honor 25 years ago. Is this the year that drought ends? If any team has a running back win the award, it might be the Eagles. Philadelphia’s rushing attack was dominant this season, led by Miles Sanders out of the backfield. Let’s take a look at Sanders’ Super Bowl MVP odds ahead of the game on Sunday.

Miles Sanders Super Bowl MVP Odds

Sanders’ odds to win Super Bowl MVP are +3000, about even with teammate DeVonta Smith. The pair trails both quarterbacks, Travis Kelce, and A.J. Brown in MVP odds.

Sanders has been one of the NFL’s more underappreciated running backs since entering the league. Consistently efficient out of the Eagles’ backfield, Sanders has finally emerged as a go-to option for Philadelphia’s offense after years of intermittent usage.

The Eagles’ offensive line does deserve some of the credit for the running game’s success, but in this context, that probably doesn’t matter much. Fair or not, an offensive lineman isn’t going to earn Super Bowl MVP honors over a running back who has the numbers.

With that being said, a running back winning the award isn’t likely, either. The Eagles thrive on their running game, but that means more than just Sanders. Hurts sees plenty of action on the ground, while Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott both get involved out of the backfield as well.

Sanders racked up 11 touchdowns this season, but Hurts, Gainwell, and Scott combined for 20 rushing touchdowns themselves in an offense that piled on the points all season.

It’s probably going to take at least one and more likely two touchdowns in this game for Sanders to be an MVP contender. That’s unlikely, though he did manage three games with 100+ rushing yards and two touchdowns this season. The Chiefs had a near-average run defense this season, though the unit helped up well against the Bengals’ rushing attack.

The best case scenario for Sanders is an early Eagles lead. If Philadelphia gets to a point in which it doesn’t have to utilize the passing game as much, we should see plenty of work for Sanders. That makes Sanders a much more attractive bet if you’re confident the Eagles can cruise in this game. I expect a close game regardless of the winner, so I’m not as confident we’re going to see the Eagles run the ball relentlessly.

Sanders rushed for 1,296 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2022, finishing fifth in rushing yards and tied for eighth in rushing touchdowns. He has the talent and the offensive line to make a huge impact in this game, but a playmaker like A.J. Brown or Smith might be a better bet with the passing game set to be a bigger factor than it has been so far in these playoffs.
