Kyler Murray didn’t lose on Sunday, but he lost ground in his chase to win the MVP award.

As we do every Wednesday, here are our current leading candidates, with odds from the PointsBet sportsbook.

Bills quarterback Josh Allen (+500, last week +900): The new betting favorite, thanks to taking down the Chiefs and playing great in the process.

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (+650, last week +475): He was ordinary and others were great. So he fell. He gets a chance against the Browns to climb again.

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady (+500, last week +800): Five touchdown passes and 400-plus yards strengthen his spot.

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (+1200, last week +1600): The best passing performance of his career could be a sign of things to come.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (+700, last week +800): Somehow, Prescott and the Cowboys are getting overlooked.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (+1000, last week +1000): Steady against the Bengals. It takes spectacular to be the MVP.

Others to watch: Patrick Mahomes (+1400), Justin Herbert (+650), Matthew Stafford (+1200), Joe Burrow (+5000), Derrick Henry (+5000).

Sinking like a stone: Derek Carr (+6600), Russell Wilson (+15000).

  1. Prescott was slotted as Comeback player of the year before the year started. Even if he deserves the MVP, he wont get it. Everyone already knows he is Comeback Player of the Year

  2. Treyvon Diggs should be on this list right now too with 6 picks in 5 games… Defensive guys are eligible too

  3. Let’s give it to Brady. We all know winning MVP is the kiss of death when it come to winning the SB in the same season.

  4. Bills haven’t beat a team with a winning record. Allen is a great QB but Kyler is far more,

    —————

    And they won’t have to play many more teams with a winning record this year, it doesn’t seem. All the more reason Allen should be the favorite.

  6. “Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (+1200, last week +1600): The best passing performance of his career could be a sign of things to come.”….or it could be that Indy has a JV secondary and no pass rush.

  7. Kyler will get dinged up and his numbers will dip, Josh is riding his defense. It is between Brady and Lamar. Brady playing at high level at 44 is incredible, Lamar carrying the Ravens full of injuries is also incredible.

    Meanwhile, in reality, the Bills are averaging 39 PPG over the last 4 weeks…

    Like Tom Brady had Miami players draped all over him. Always nitpicking Lamar. Those passes he threw at the goal line had to be spot on or they were picks. Brady receivers were wide open all day and Josh Allen, did Buffalo even have DBs playing in that game?

  10. I guess quarterbacks are the only ones eligible for this award. The award is meaningless if that is the case.

  11. No respect for the running back in football anymore. Derrick Henry is still running over everyone

  12. Rodgers looked MVP to me Sunday. I watched the game. Love me some Bengals, but Rodgers was more than just steady.

  13. Allen & Murray are frontrunners, w/ Brady and Rodgers close behind. Jackson makes too many boneheaded plays – he has one good gm vs a sucky team & they crown him MVP?

    +1200 is “crowned MVP”?

  15. Wake me up when Lamar demonstrates he can win a big game against a good defense when it matters.
