Winning the NFL MVP is one of the top individual accomplishments a football player can achieve in the regular season. Winning the Super Bowl MVP award, however, is a whole other level of prestige, because it usually comes alongside a Lombardi Trophy.
The Los Angeles Rams won Super Bowl 56, topping the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20. A player on the winning team nearly always wins the MVP and this year was no different as Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp earned the award. Kupp had eight catches for 92 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winner. He had pregame odds of +500 at Bovada.

Is Von Miller In Line For Another Super Bowl MVP Award?
Tom Brady went to the Super Bowl 10 times and won the Super Bowl MVP five times, but we know he’s not going to add another award to his collection this year. Maybe, however, we can have a repeat winner in LA linebacker Von Miller.
At +3300 pregame, Miller is pretty good value for a player who has proven he can win this award. The linebacker is the most recent defensive player to win Super Bowl MVP, nabbing the honor back in Super Bowl 50. He isn’t the most likely Super Bowl MVP defensive player this year, though, with teammate Aaron Donald leading the odds for the defenders at +800.

Super Bowl MVP Prediction: Odell Beckham Jr. (+2500)
Note: Beckham left the first half with an apparent knee injury and did not return.
Going into the NFL’s conference championship games, we thought Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford provided the best Super Bowl MVP betting value. He led his team to victory, and would’ve been a nice futures bet at +330 ahead of the NFC final, but we’re going down the oddsboard now.
Our top Super Bowl MVP pick for this year’s big game is +2500 wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. The star receiver is often in the headlines, but he’s found his way back into the box scores in recent weeks. In the NFC championship game, Odell posted nine receptions on 11 targets for 113 yards. We gave serious consideration to Stafford again, at +135, but believe the value is with Beckham!
Super Bowl MVP Has Belonged To Quarterbacks
In Super Bowl 53, receiver Julian Edelman became the seventh wideout to win the Super Bowl MVP award. However, the Super Bowl MVP award has historically belonged to quarterbacks, who have won the trophy 31 times. The MVP has gone seven times to running backs, four times to linebackers, and twice each to defensive ends and safeties.

A cornerback, a defensive tackle and a kick returner have each won the award once. Since Super Bowl 34 in 2000, quarterbacks have been the MVP 14 times.
If you look at the Super Bowl MVP odds above, you can see that the sportsbooks expect another QB to win the award, with Matthew Stafford and Joe Burrow leading the odds above some of the top players at other positions. You only need to look at the past Super Bowl MVP winners to see why.
