Aaron Rodgers was the landslide winner of the NFL’s MVP award last season, and he tops the odds at Bovada to claim that accolade once again this year as the league gets ready for its first games of the season this week.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback threw for 4,643 odds for his 15-1 team last season, with 45 touchdown passes and just six interceptions. That performance landed him 48 of the 50 first-place votes for the MVP award; he’s at 11/2 odds at Bovada for the repeat.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won his second NFL MVP award in 2010, and he’s at 6/1 odds for this season. Brady threw for 5,235 yards for New England last season with 39 touchdown strikes and 12 interceptions.
Drew Brees, who picked up the other two first-place votes in the MVP race in 2011, is then at 15/2 on those NFL prop odds at Bovada, with the New Orleans Saints quarterback looking for his first-ever MVP award. Brees passed for 5,476 yards last season with 46 TDs and 14 interceptions.
Peyton Manning is then at 10/1 odds, with the new quarterback for the Denver Broncos a four-time winner of the award; Manning was the MVP in 2003, 2004, 2008, and 2009.
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is then at 12/1, followed by Texans running back Arian Foster and Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford at 15/1. Giants quarterback Eli Manning and Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson are both pegged at 18/1
