NFL MVP Award Odds: The MVP Race is Officially Over

2019 NFL MVP Award Odds

If there was any debate which player was going to be named the MVP of the 2019 NFL season prior to Week 15, it’s officially over now with only two weeks remaining.

Lamar Jackson is the astronomical -3000 favorite to be crowned MVP at BetOnline, with only Russell Wilson (+1000) and Michael Thomas (+6600) behind him. A week ago, Jackson’s price to win the hardware was sitting at -1000.

Jackson is Following in Mahomes’ Footsteps

The Baltimore Ravens quarterback is about to make it two straight seasons of a breakout sophomore signal-caller winning the award after Patrick Mahomes accomplished the feat in 2018. Before the start of the campaign, Jackson’s odds to become MVP were a ridiculous +4100 at the shop.

Baltimore overwhelmed the New York Jets in the Week 15 edition of Thursday Night Football en route to a 42-21 blowout triumph at M&T Bank Stadium. Jackson had his best statistical game of the season, throwing for 212 yards and five touchdowns. The former Heisman Trophy winner carried eight times for 86 yards on the ground, breaking Michael Vick’s single-season rushing record for quarterbacks in the process.

Ravens are on the Verge of Playoff Home-Field Advantage

The Ravens clinched the AFC North title and moved closer to securing home-field advantage through the playoffs with the win. With one more win in the final two weeks, they’re guaranteed to host the conference championship game, should they make it that far. Considering they’re the Super Bowl favorites, anyone outside of Jackson winning the MVP award is an improbability.

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.
