NFL MVP Award Odds: There’s No Stopping Jackson Now

NFL MVP Award Odds

The NFL regular season doesn’t officially end until December 29, but the race to be crowned MVP is already over in the eyes of oddsmakers.

Entering Week 15, Lamar Jackson is the massive -1000 favorite to win the award at BetOnline. Russell Wilson (+600), Aaron Rodgers (+3300) and Michael Thomas (+6600) are the only other options left to wager on at the shop, but it seems like Jackson claiming the hardware is inevitable at this point.

Jackson is Writing His Name in the Record Books

Last week, Jackson was the -275 front-runner to garner the hardware, with Wilson the closest to him at +250. Jackson joined Michael Vick as the only quarterback in NFL history to rush for over 1,000 yards in a single season in Baltimore’s 24-17 victory over Buffalo in Week 14. The Louisville product ended the day with a combined 185 yards and three touchdowns through the air along with one interception.

Ravens Look Like the Team to Beat

The Ravens look like the best team in the league right now, and sportsbooks clearly agree. Baltimore is topping the list in Super Bowl odds – no small feat considering they were ranked third behind the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers in odds to win the AFC North at the start of the season.

Simply put, Jackson’s play has taken the Ravens to a new level in 2019. The sophomore QB has 2,677 yards through the air in 13 contests along with 1,017 rushing yards. His 35 combined touchdowns (28 passing, seven rushing) is tops in the league, and he has a 66.3 percent completion rate along with only six interceptions.

How to Bet on NFL MVP Odds

Popular NFL bets include point spreads and totals (OVER/UNDER). For those looking for something different, you can wager on which player will be named MVP. As football season progresses, you’ll see the MVP action changing. To get in on the action, you can make a futures bet.

What is a Futures Bet?

A futures wager is a bet on events that will take place in time, like the Most Valuable Player award in the NFL. At your betting site of choice, you’ll see NFL MVP odds listed like so:

Dak Prescott +200

Tom Brady +250

Patrick Mahomes +400

Lamar Jackson +700

Unlike a moneyline bet where favorites would be marked with the minus sign (-) and underdogs with the plus sign (+), the fave here would be the player with the lowest odds. In this case it’s Dak Prescott.

Let’s say you have $55 to spend and you decide that you like Mahomes for MVP. A winning bet would give you a payout of $275 – your original $55 is returned along with your loot of $220. The higher the odds, the more money you’ll see. But, don’t bet on a +5000 MVP candidate in September in the hopes that you’ll make bank at the end of the regular season. Oddsmakers don’t only look at current performance when setting the odds. They also look at past performance, off-season activities, and training camp.

Our Odds Calculator can show you how much you’d win based on the odds and amount wagered.

With futures bets, it’s important to snag odds early. The closer we get to the Super Bowl, the lines will move. Oddsmakers update the odds as players up their production or are plagued by injuries. Keep in mind that if you were to back a player in the MVP race and he suffers from a season-ending injury, most sportsbooks will give you your money back since you technically didn’t lose the bet and have no way of winning it.

As soon as the Most Valuable Player trophy is awarded to the winner, sportsbooks will update the betting results and you can cash out your bet.
