Updated NFL MVP Odds & Betting Outlook

There is a new 2019 NFL MVP winner betting odds favorite. Granted, Patrick Mahomes is still on the sidelines, but Aaron Rodgers has earned his new frontrunner status.

Updated NFL MVP Odds & Betting Outlook

Rodgers is 35 years old and is on pace to finish with 4,600 yards passing, 32 touchdowns, and four interceptions. He is the +260 moneyline betting favorite to be named AP’s NFL MVP for 2019. This is just one year after a miserable injury-plagued season in which he boasted a 25-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio. However, the Packers finished the season a disappointing 6-9-1. This season with a new coach and an upgraded defense, Green Bay already has seven wins this season.

Joining Rodgers atop the NFL MVP odds list is Russell Wilson, who is a close second at +275 moneyline odds. His 68.4% completion rate is 7.9% higher than his expected completion rate. What does that mean? It indicates that he’s completing a lot of passes that defy the laws of physics. No QB in the league is asked to do more with less talent and within his offensive system. He is the reason the Seahawks are 6-2 and will make the playoffs.

The surprise name in the top ten of the NFL MVP odds list? Kirk Cousins! He is a +2500 contender to be name MVP by AP tied with teammate Dalvin Cook. The Vikings QB was more than invisible in his team’s first month. He was a liability. After the first four games of the season, Minnesota was 2-2 and was scraping the bottom in pass attempts per game at 24.8, passing yards per game at 169, and passing touchdowns with 3 all season.

However, Cousins has bounced back since being called out by teammate Adam Thielen. Minnesota went from trying to limit Cousins’ impact to opening the playbook and playing with a win or go home attitude. The Vikings shifted away from its conservative, run-heavy offense towards a full on air attack centered around its redoubled efforts in play-action. Now Cousins leads the NFL in yards per pass attempt (9.3) and completion rate (72.1 percent). He is second in passer rating (115.2), ranks fifth in touchdown passes (13), and is fourth in completion rate (69.8 percent).

Now more on Cook’s NFL MVP odds. With 823 rushing yards and 293 receiving yards through the first eight games, Cook is on pace for 1,646 rushing yards and 2,232 yards from scrimmage. He will have to have a big second half to the season; otherwise, he will split the MVP votes that will go to running backs with Carolina’s Christian McCaffrey.
