NFL Prop Bet: Super Bowl MVP Odds

Super Bowl MVP trophy against a backdrop

The New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons have proven to be head and shoulders above the rest of the competition in the 2016 NFL playoffs, and they have a date on February 5 in Houston, Texas for Super Bowl LI as a result. When it comes to betting on the Most Valuable Player of the big game, a familiar face is topping odds lists.

Tom Brady is the -110 front-runner at 5Dimes, with Matt Ryan (+185), Julio Jones (+1600), LaGarrette Blount (+2000), Julian Edelman (+2000), Devonta Freeman (+2500), Dion Lewis (+3300), Chris Hogan (+3300) and Tevin Coleman (+5000) and Martellus Bennett (+6600) rounding out the top 10.

Brady is the straw that stirs the drink for the Patriots’ high-flying offense, and he’s also a three-time winner of the individual award. Of New England’s four championships in the Brady-Belichick era, Touchdown Tom’s only title without an MVP came in 2005 when wideout Deion Branch received the bragging rights.

While Brady deserves to be the favorite, there’s tons of value elsewhere if you think the Falcons can pull off the upset. Ryan at +185 is a great price considering how well he’s playing right now, as the veteran is the regular season MVP fave and has seven touchdowns and no interceptions in the postseason.

Historically speaking, the Super Bowl MVP Award has been dominated by quarterbacks. Take a look for yourself:

Von Miller’s huge game last year saw the Denver Broncos linebacker get the glory. Miller’s odds opened at a staggering +6000, which crushed sportsbooks both in Vegas and offshore. Considering the potent offenses the Pats and Falcons possess, though, it’s highly unlikely a defensive player will win it two years in a row.

Archived -  Super Bowl XLIX MVP

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the favorite and Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith is a longshot on the odds to win the Super Bowl XLIX MVP award released this week by online sportsbook Bovada.

Brady sits as the 8/5 favorite on the odds to win the Super Bowl XLIX MVP at Bovada, an award he also won in Super Bowl XXXVI and Super Bowl XXXVIII. Brady threw for 226 yards and three touchdowns with an interception in the Patriots' 45-7 rout of the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch are then at 7/2 and 4/1 on the odds to win the Super Bowl XLIX MVP award at Bovada, with Lynch rushing for 157 yards and a touchdown in the team's comeback win over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game and Wilson throwing the game-winning TD strike in overtime in that contest.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is at 9/1 odds at Bovada, with New England running back LeGarrette Blount at 12/1 odds. Gronkowski had just three catches for 28 yards but scored a touchdown in the AFC Championship Game, while Blount exploded for 148 yards and three scores in the blowout win.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman sits behind the top contenders on the Super Bowl XLIX MVP odds at Bovada at 33/1 odds, while linebacker Smith is a 100/1 longshot on the list. Smith won the MVP award in the Seahawks' victory over the Denver Broncos last season in Super Bowl XLVIII.

A quarterback had won the Super Bowl MVP award four years in row until Smith broke up that streak last season, and since Brady won his first Super Bowl MVP award a quarterback has taken the honors eight times in 13 games. Safety Dexter Jackson of the Bucs was the Super Bowl XXXVII MVP, while wide receivers Deion Branch, Hines Ward, and Santonio Holmes also won the award in that span.

The last time a running back won the Super Bowl MVP was at Super Bowl XXXII, when Terrell Davis of the Denver Broncos took home the award.

The Seahawks' Richard Sherman made the big play and the headlines in the NFC Championship Game, but can he come up big again in the title game against the Broncos and pay off on the odds to win the Super Bowl 48 MVP award at the sportsbooks?

Sherman is listed at 16/1 on the opening Super Bowl MVP odds at Bovada, putting him in a tie with Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas, Broncos WR Wes Welker, and Seahawks WR Percy Harvin on that list.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is the 8/5 favorite on the Super Bowl MVP odds at Bovada, followed by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson at 13/4, and Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch at 6/1. Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno rounds out the top contenders at 18/1.

Here's a look at the complete opening odds to win Super Bowl MVP.

Archived -  Super Bowl XLVII MVP

The last time that the Baltimore Ravens were in the Super Bowl linebacker Ray Lewis was named the Most Valuable Player of the contest.

Can Lewis repeat that feat on February 3 as his Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans?

Lewis is third at 6/1 on the odds to win the Super Bowl MVP at Bovada, which has him behind the two starting quarterbacks for the game - the Niners' Colin Kaepernick is the favorite at 7/4 on the Super Bowl MVP odds list, with the Ravens' Joe Flacco at 5/2.

Kaepernick wasn't even a starter until Week 11 of the season, proving that it's not always the glam QB or star wide receiver that gets the Super Bowl MVP odds attention.

Niners running back Frank Gore then holds down 17/2 odds on that Super Bowl prop bet at Bovada, with Ravens running back Ray Rice at 12/1 odds. San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree is at 16/1 on the Super Bowl MVP odds, with Baltimore counterpart Anquan Boldin at 18/1. Here are the complete odds to win the Super Bowl MVP award.

Archived -  Super Bowl XLVI MVP

There will be three former Super Bowl MVPs on the field in Super Bowl XLVI between the New England Patriots and New York Giants but the only double-winner is the runaway pick as top betting choice for this year.

Tom Brady is +115, by far the shortest Super Bowl MVP odds on the board at 5Dimes. His counterpart, the MVP of Super Bowl 42 four years ago, is Eli Manning, second at +175.

And the third member of this elite group is a whopping 66/1 longshot. Deion Branch won the award at Super Bowl 39 as the Patriots beat the Eagles.

Why are the QBs so far ahead of the field when it comes to Super Bowl MVP odds? Because they usually win the award. Four of the past five winners were QBs, with only Santonio Holmes - then with Pittsburgh - breaking up the run.

And running backs almost never win, which accounts for the longshot odds of Ahmad Bradshaw and Benjarvus Green-Ellis at +3000 and +4000 respectively.

The last RB to win the award was Terrell Davis for Denver back at Super Bowl 32. Since 1985 it has only happened three times with Emmitt Smith in Dallas and Ottis Anderson for the Giants also winning the award at that position.

Of course, both the Giants and Patriots love to pass, but the Giants could be the type of team to use the 1-2 punch of Bradshaw and fullback Brandon Jacobs to good effect. If they can establish a ground game, it keeps Brady off the field, limiting his chances to earn MVP votes.

The third pick for Super Bowl XLVI isn't even practising this week. Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski has a leg injury, but oddsmakers at 5Dimes respect his gamebreaking skills, making him +700.

Wideouts Wes Welker and Victor Cruz are next at +1400, while Hakeen Nicks is +1600.

Don't think it's worth the risk of picking a defensive player like Jason Pierre-Paul? The defensive player of the year candidate is a huge +5500 longshot (that's 55/1 odds) and Vince Wilfork is +6000 for New England.

More defensive players have won the award in the past 15 years (3) than running backs (Ray Lewis, Larry Brown and Dexter Jackson, who had two INTs for Tampa Bay).

Check out the full list of Super Bowl XLVI MVP odds courtesy of 5Dimes and watch for injury situations during the week to change these numbers.
