Thirteen touchdowns and no interceptions. Four wins and no losses. 

That's the short and sweet synopsis of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' season so far. He's been a dart marksman hitting nothing but bullseyes and triple 20s on a team sitting in first place and listed at 10-to-1 to win the Super Bowl at PointsBet Sportsbook

Rodgers actually leapfrogged reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes on PointsBet's latest MVP odds sheet. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is still the odds-on favorite at +188, then Mr. Discount Double Check +300 followed by Mahomes +320. 

Rodgers was +700 just seven days ago.

MVP PointsBet Week 5

After the top three contenders in single digits, there's a big drop off down to Bills quarterback Josh Allen at +1100. He still rose up from +1600 last week as Buffalo is undefeated and they're scoring over 30 points per game. Allen’s ascension in the MVP market is directly correlated with the Bills' rise in the Super Bowl futures market. Allen began the season at +5000 to win MVP and the Bills have moved from +5000 to +1600 to win the whole enchilada. 

Lamar Jackson slid to the fifth spot at +1300 and Dak Prescott's padded stats have him sitting in the six hole at +1600. Prescott's numbers are definitely inflated because 1-and-3 Dallas is down in every game and he's throwing the ball at a record rate to try and catch up. I'm pretty positive that a quarterback on a losing team is not going to win league MVP. 

Rodgers and Allen are easily the biggest risers in the market. The biggest fallers are Kyler Murray from +1600 to +2200 and Deshaun Watson from +5000 to +6600. Cam Newton (+3300) and Ben Roethlisberger (+3500) dropped a little bit too, the former from a positive COVID-19 test and the latter due to a game postponement.
