Patrick Mahomes Leads Preseason NFL MVP Odds

As if there was any doubt, Kansas City Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the betting favorite to take home NFL MVP honors this season.

The 27-year-old won MVP last season, as well as in 2018, but only two players have won the award in consecutive years since 2009.

Mahomes (+700) sits in front of AFC rival Joe Burrow (+750) for the honor. 

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen (+800) finds himself third in betting odds while Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (+1100) rounds out the top four.

A plethora of quarterbacks fill in the rest of the betting odds list before Christian McCaffrey (+8000) and Justin Jefferson (+10,000) find themselves in contention.

Generally speaking, a statistically-inclined quarterback on one of the best teams in the league is a likely winner of MVP.

Perhaps this is only the second time since 2007 that a non-QB player accepts the illustrious title.
