We won’t know the teams playing in the Super Bowl until around 9:30pm ET on Sunday. But you can currently place wagers on which player will win the Super Bowl MVP, not to be decided until February 12.
Not surprisingly, the four starting quarterbacks lead the way.
Joe Burrow (+330)
Current betting odds have the Eagles as the slight favorites to win the Super Bowl, but the Super Bowl MVP odds lean slightly in favor of Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow. He is favored to win this Sunday against the Chiefs, and if he is in the Super Bowl, he will be the only quarterback in the game who has been there before.
Jalen Hurts (+350)
His Eagles are favored to beat the 49ers and go to the Super Bowl, and Jalen Hurts is a 2nd Team All-Pro selection. So naturally he would be right on the heels of Burrow as the favorite to win the Super Bowl MVP. And if not for an injury over the final three weeks of the season, he very well could have been the season’s MVP.
Patrick Mahomes +350
Patrick Mahomes is the presumptive MVP after leading the league in passing yards, total yards, passing touchdowns, and total touchdowns. He’s a 1st Team All-Pro for the second time in his career, and he has previously won a Super Bowl MVP.
If the Chiefs win the Super Bowl, it’s hard to envision a scenario where he doesn’t win the award.
Brock Purdy +750
Niners rookie quarterback Brock Purdy the lowest rated of the four starting quarterbacks because he is the rookie, and the 49ers have so many other possible MVP candidates. Six of the last 10 SB MVPs have been quarterbacks, so Purdy would be the most likely candidate in a San Francisco win. But of all of the four teams, they have the most “other” possibilities.
The other 49ers that aren’t quarterbacks who might be a Super Bowl MVPs are led by Christian McCaffrey at +1500. He has the shortest odds of everyone who isn’t one of the four starting quarterbacks.
Behind McCaffrey are the best pass catches on each of the four teams: Ja’Marr Chase (+2000), Travis Kelce (+2500), Deebo Samuel (+2800), and A.J. Brown (+3000).
The last defensive player to win Super Bowl MVP was Von Miller in Super Bowl 50. Two years before that, Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith won the award, but those two are the defensive players to win in the last 20 years.
Nick Bosa has the shortest odds of any defensive player in this year’s final four at +4000. The only other defensive player within shouting distance is the Chiefs Chris Jones, paying +6000.
