The Super Bowl is less than a week away, which means NFL fans get to enjoy one last game before going into hibernation until the fall. Also, we preview Super Bowl 2019 MVP odds.
When it comes to the Super Bowl, there are plenty of prop bets to choose from. Also, one of our favorites is picking the Super Bowl MVP. Who will it be this year?
The Super Bowl MVP is one of the best prop bets to choose from. For the reason that the NFL is a quarterback driven league. Furthermore, this means the quarterback of the winning team has the best odds of being named Super Bowl MVP. We saw that with Nick Foles.
This year, the quarterbacks are Tom Brady and Jared Goff. Brady threw for over 500 in last year’s Super Bowl. Also, Brady would have been named the MVP if the Patriots had gone on to win the game. He is the favorite to win the MVP award at +125.
Goff had an incredible season. He lead the Rams to a tie for the best record in the league. He has the second-best odds to win the MVP award at +250.
With this being Brady’s ninth Super Bowl, the future Hall of Famer is the most experienced player on the field and he is likely to have a big game against the Rams’ defense, which has given up a lot of yards through the air this season.
Super Bowl Odds
Remaining Super Bowl odds can be viewed below. In Goff’s case, his inexperience could cause him to struggle if he gets overwhelmed by the magnitude of the game. If he doesn’t get rattled, he too should be able to put up some solid numbers.
Even though Brady and Goff are the safest bet to win the MVP award, another candidate that shouldn’t be ignored is Rams running back Todd Gurley.
Gurley put up big numbers during the regular season, rushing for 1,251 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also had 59 receptions for 580 yards and four touchdowns.
Gurley struggled against the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game and will be trying to bounce back from the disappointing performance. The Patriots also struggled against the run at times this season, which means Gurley should be able to pick up a lot of yards on the ground. If the Rams win and he has at least two rushing touchdowns, don’t be surprised if he wins the MVP award. Gurley’s odds to win the Super Bowl MVP is +1000.
