Aaron Rodgers Becomes Leader in NFL MVP Odds Race
There was a close race for the MVP award, but one player is starting to stand out above the rest. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has had an incredible season and is now at the top of the leaderboard of the odds list.
Rodgers has led the Packers to another NFC North title, and they have a shot at the first seed in the NFC as well. His incredible season could be his last in a Packer uniform, and he could very well be riding off into the sunset with an MVP award and a possible Super Bowl.
Rodgers has emerged as the front runner for the MVP, after sharing first place with Buccaneers’ quarterback Tom Brady. If his amazing season continues, Rodgers should be the winner of the NFL’s most important award in Most Valuable Player.
NFL MVP Odds Leaderboard
As you can see, Rodgers has a tight hold on first place for the MVP award. Tom Brady was the previous front runner in the middle of December, but Rodgers has surpassed him.
Another player who has had a great month and surged up the leaderboard is Colts’ running back Jonathan Taylor.
Taylor not being a quarterback might hurt his chances for this award, but his season is not to be overlooked. Brady and Taylor are the closest on Rodgers’ trail, while some other big name players follow behind them.
These odds are from BetOnline, so if you like a current players’ price, make sure you place your bets as soon as possible. If Rodgers continues his season the way he has been playing, his odds will start to become less and less profitable.
Now might be the best time to bet on someone else if you aren’t a Rodgers’ fan either. Brady’s price was around +150 before jumping to +700. These odds can change very quickly, so you have to bet accordingly.
Here is an odds tracker for some research help.
Can Aaron Rodgers Seal the Deal for MVP?
The short answer here is, absolutely. He has thrown for 33 touchdowns with just 4 interceptions. He also leads the NFL in touchdown percentage, interception percentage, and quarterback rating.
In MVP voting, wins are also brought up frequently. He has played in 14 out of 15 games so far and has a 12-2 record in those games. The Packers play the Vikings and the Lions in the next two weeks, which are very winnable games for them.
If Rodgers shines in those two games, the MVP award is all his.
Aaron Rodgers and the MVP Award
If the season ended today, Rodgers would almost certainly be named NFL MVP. It would be his second award in as many years and his fourth overall. The future Hall of Fame quarterback is still playing at the highest level in his later years of his career.
With Rodgers next two opponents being the mediocre Vikings and the terrible Lions, Rodgers should be able to secure the award easily. You can check out the best NFL betting sites to place your bets on the NFL’s MVP award.
