NFL MVP Odds: Newton's to Lose

Cam Newton

With three weeks remaining in the NFL season, Cam Newton has taken a commanding lead in the MVP odds at Bovada, and with good reason. Newton has been the catalyst for the Carolina Panthers’ perfect season, having already set a career high with 28 touchdown passes along with a career best 96.9 quarterback rating.

Newton, who wasn’t expected to have a particularly strong season after his top receiver Kelvin Benjamin went down for the season, is currently listed at -500. Just to show how little was expected of Newton, before the season began he was tied with Colin Kaepernick at +5000 in the MVP odds, and was behind Ryan Tannehill, Matt Ryan and Matthew Stafford who were listed at +4000.

Tom Brady has seen his odds drop to +350 after the Patriots have lost two of their last three games, but the Patriots quarterback has been the glue that’s kept New England together after seeing a plethora of injuries to their top playmakers on offense.

Russell Wilson has entered the discussion to win the award after leading the Seahawks to six wins in their last seven games. Wilson is a longshot at +1200, but he’s been a total nightmare for opposing defenses in his last four games, throwing 16 touchdown passes and no interceptions.

The 2015 NFL season has been a weird one. Some teams came out of nowhere to launch themselves to the top of the standings, while other perennial powerhouses have seemingly fallen off the map. But there’s one particular market that could have huge ramifications on the sports betting world: MVP futures.

At online sportsbook Bovada, it’s a three horse race between Tom Brady (-125), Cam Newton (+110) and Carson Palmer (+1200). You’ll have to excuse Newton bettors if they’re particularly on edge about this one, however, as the Auburn product was a +5000 long shot to win the award at the beginning of the season.

In the wake of the Deflategate drama, Brady entered the campaign with a +1000 shot to garner the award while Palmer wasn’t even on the board to wager on. To put that into perspective, Brandon Marshall – the player with the longest MVP odds – was +30000.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck had likeliest chance (+300) to collect the hardware at the start of the campaign and...well...let's just say anyone who put money on him may as well have lit it on fire instead.

With his four-game suspension overturned Tom Brady has shot back up the odds to win the NFL MVP award at the online sportsbooks, with the New England Patriots quarterback moving from +2000 to +1000 on those betting lines since his punishment was squashed.

At Bovada, however, it's still Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck who sits as the +300 favorite on the odds to win the 2015 NFL MVP award, with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers second on the list at +500. Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is fourth at +1200 on the NFL MVP odds heading into the season.
