Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers undoubtedly will be the regular-season NFL MVP. He’s currently not the favorite to win the more significant individual award: Super Bowl MVP.

Via PointsBet, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes leads the way at +300 (bet $100 to win $300). Next on the list is Rodgers at +325, followed by Bills quarterback Josh Allen at +475 and Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady at +625.

There’s a significant drop after that, with Packers receiver Davante Adams at +1500, Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill at +1600, and Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce at +1800.

There’s a long list of options, with plenty of defensive players, too. Broncos linebacker Von Miller won the award in Super Bowl 50, and Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith won it two years earlier. It’s usually a quarterback award, but receivers have won it four of the last 16 times.

A running back last won the Super Bowl MVP award 23 years ago, when Terrell Davis secured the honors for the Broncos. He’s the only MVP at the position since Ottis Anderson in Super Bowl XXV.

In all, running backs have won the award only six times. Defensive players have won it nine times.

  1. Love Mahomes, but Damien Williams should’ve won it last year. Maybe Clyde can get healthy and help them get a win against Buffalo, then take care of things in the SB.

  2. The way the Chiefs have been playing of late…they wont be able to get past the high powered Bills. Let alone the Super Bowl.

  3. They were well on their way to 30 plus against the browns moving the ball at will before he got hurt. They hadn’t played a meaningful game for weeks prior. As of late is irrelevant. The high power bills that scored a whole 10 points last week? The same defense kc dropped 34 on?

  4. The bills? Don’t make me laugh. No one will beat the Chiefs unless Mahomes gets hurt. Chiefs 35-28

  5. Can we at least play the Championship games first? If I were the Bills I’d tack this up right in the locker room bulletin board.

  6. Mahomes better be ready to take some hits. Buffalo is going to how his “protocol” REALLY worked out…
