Surprise, surprise. Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady are the heavy favorites to win the MVP for Super Bowl 55. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Quarterbacks have won 30 Super Bowl MVPs.

Plus, Brady and Mahomes have some hardware of their own. Brady’s four Super Bowl MVPs are the most for any player in history and Mahomes locked up his first Super Bowl MVP when his Chiefs took down the San Francisco 49ers last year. The Chances of one of those guys winning MVP seems high.

But there are still some guys on the board with some value. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce are both at +900. Hill and Kelce are the two favored targets for Mahomes and they can go off for a big game at a moment’s notice. Outside of those two, cornerback Tyrann Mathieu is in the ix at +2000. There are a handful of guys who are set at +2500.

Here are the current Chiefs vs TB Bucs Super Bowl MVP odds at.

 

Latest Super Bowl MVP Odds – Mahomes the Betting Favorite

Patrick Mahomes (KC) -105
Tom Brady (TB) +200
Travis Kelce (KC) +1400
Tyreek Hill (KC) +1400
Leonard Fournette (TB) +3000
Chris Godwin (TB) +3400

Antonio Brown (TB) +5500
Ronald Jones (TB) +5500
Darrel Williams (KC) +6500
Chris Jones (KC) +8000
Jason Pierre-Paul (TB) +8000
Mecole Hardman (KC) +8500
Rob Gronkowski (TB) +8500
Antoine Winfield Jr. (TB) +10000
Sammy Watkins (KC) +10000

As you can see from below, the odds have moved a bit as now Patrick Mahomes is the odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl MVP at -105 at FanDuel Sportsbook. While Mahomes was the favorite, he was still plus-money earlier in the week at +110. Now, being a -105 favorite that indicates that he is clearly the favorite for most. Some look at this betting market from the perspective of getting a cheaper moneyline wager, as the overwhelming likelihood is that the winning QB will receive the Super Bowl MVP. Given that the Chiefs are -150 or greater at legal books, taking Mahomes at -110 is just a better price in that respect.

Opening Odds To Win MVP Super Bowl 55

The MVP of the Super Bowl is where so many bettors look to find value and big ROI. My attention immediately went Mike Evans and Leonard Fournette at 25-1 odds to win the MVP for the Bucs. If you follow the building narrative that the Chiefs are a dynasty in the making, then strong value can be found outside of Mahomes. Running backs have a tendency to break out in Super Bowl matchups….could Darrel Williams at 25-1 be worth a shot? A look at the opening odds from DraftKings Sportsbook.
