Sportsbooks Give MVP to Rodgers

With a month left in the regular season, the NFL MVP debate is an open-and-shut case and the only betting odds involve who will finish second to Aaron Rodgers.

Online sportsbooks such as Bovada aren’t even offering odds on the Green Bay quarterback who has dominated all season long in leading the Packers to a 12-0 mark so far.

Seems like he will follow up his Super Bowl MVP award from last season with a regular-season edition in 2011. Last year’s winner is the favorite pick to finish second in balloting according to Bovada oddsmakers.

Tom Brady is -150 on the NFL MVP prop menu, while Drew Brees is second choice to finish second at +150. Big Ben Roethlisberger is +500 in Pittsburgh and look at the fifth choice, a pivot who wasn’t even a starter halfway through the season.

Yes, much-criticized Denver QB Tim Tebow is +1000 or roughly 10/1 to be runner-up behind Rodgers after an astonishing run of comeback victories and good luck. Denver is at home to the Chicago Bears this week, favored by 3.5 points against a team with no quarterback (which ironically is what many called the Broncos not too long ago).

Rodgers continues his MVP season in Week 14 against the visiting Oakland Raiders. They are favored 12.5 points at home to the Raiders, according to the Raiders Packers game preview.

There are other Week 14 prop odds involving the aforementioned top quarterbacks. In one prop, Brees is a big favorite over both Brady and Rodgers and that is the most-passing-yards bet.
