It's no surprise Brady is atop this odds list.

He ranks second among all quarterbacks in receiving yards (2,650), first in passing touchdowns (25), 10th in completion percentage (67.3) and fifth in QB rating (108.6). The Buccaneers lead the NFC South with a 6-2 record.

Brady is already the oldest player ever to win the NFL MVP. He did so in 2017 at 40 years old. He's also the oldest MVP winner among the four major North American pro sports leagues (NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB). Winning the award again at age 44 would be a remarkable accomplishment.

The Bucs quarterback has won the league MVP three times (2007, 2010 and 2017) in his career -- a surprisingly low number given how well he's performed for 22 years. He does, however, have five Super Bowl MVP awards.

It might actually benefit Brady not to win MVP in 2021. The last MVP to win the Super Bowl in the same season was quarterback Kurt Warner in 1999 with the then-St. Louis Rams. The last nine MVP winners to play in the Super Bowl all lost, including Brady in 2007 and 2017.
