Updated Super Bowl MVP Odds
NFL Super Bowl Odds
Oddsmakers initially believed the Chiefs would come out on top by opening them as a -2 favorite in some shops. Within a half hour, bettors hammered the Eagles and flipped the script by turning them into a -2.5 favorite. That number has since come down a peg, now sitting at -1.5 in the Eagles favor. We may see this number continue to move back towards the Chiefs should their injury updates continue to remain positive in their favor. This could potentially be the same exact situation as the Chiefs and Bengals AFC Conference Championship line movement.
As for the total, oddsmakers believe points are expected to be scored at a blistering pace behind two elite offenses by opening the number at 51. Bettors were quick to hammer the under, taking it down to as low as 49.5. That number has since ticked back over to 50.5, remaining in the dead zone between 49 and 51. This brings some intrigue to the over as the Chiefs offense gets healthier, getting back their weapons to crack the Eagles pass protection.
Super Bowl MVP Odds & Handle
Per Draftkings, quarterbacks continue to dominate the award in both total tickets and amount of money wagered. Patrick Mahomes has received 17.1% of the total bets and 28.1% of the handle while Jalen Hurts has garnered 15.4% of the bets and 24.1% of the money. This actually comes as a surprise that Patrick Mahomes leads the way in both categories even though the Chiefs were bet down to an underdog from the opener.
Just because quarterbacks typically win the award doesn’t mean that someone else can’t steal it away. Wide receivers have been a distant rival towards the award, yet bettors have tempered their expectations on them this time around.
Tight ends on the other hand have not fared well in the history of the award, yet Travis Kelce doesn’t fit the typical tight end mold. He has as good a shot as any, being Mahomes go-to target and capable of putting up monster numbers. He is the highest wager Chiefs player not named Patrick Mahomes in both total bets and amount wagered.
If longshots are your fancy then you would be delighted to see that Kenneth Gainwell has attracted some bettors attention, currently sitting as high as +15000 in some books to win the MVP. He has garnered 4.1% of the total bets and 2.7% of the money.
Like skill players, defenseman have also shown the ability to win the award throughout the history of the Super Bowl. Haason Reddick has been the public’s darling to pull off that feat this year, attracting over 11% in both total tickets and amount wagered. Should Reddick be able to wreak havoc in the backfield and limit the Chiefs offensive production, then he can be assured to have his name high up the list for potential MVP winners.
