Odds to win NFL MVP
Bovada has released its odds on who will win the 2013 NFL MVP. Here are the favorites...
Michael Vick, who was named the Eagles' starting QB on Tuesday, has 33-to-1 odds of bringing home the MVP. He's tied with Arian Foster, Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton, Matthew Stafford and Tony Romo with the 13th-best odds.
In his second season in Denver, Peyton Manning has 5-to-1 odds to win the MVP this coming season. Manning's Broncos were earlier given the best odds, along with the 49ers, to win the Super Bowl at 6-to-1.
Vegas has 2011 NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers as the next likely candidate to take home the trophy in 2013 at 13-to-2 odds. The 29-year-old threw for 39 touchdowns and over 4,000 yards last year.
After taking over for Alex Smith last season, Colin Kaepernick led the 49ers to the Super Bowl against the Ravens, and now Vegas has the dual-threat QB has the third most likely player to add the Most Valuable Player award to their resume with 10-to-1 odds.
The Saints' QB is tied in Vegas with Kaepernick (10-to-1) to bring home the 2013 NFL MVP. Brees has a long history of winning awards and putting up eye-popping numbers and this season, baring injury, should be no different.
After rushing for over 2,000 yards, leading the NFL with the most 20-yard rushes and scoring 12 times, Adrian Peterson won the MVP award last season. This season? He enters the season with 12-to-1 odds to repeat.
Even with Wes Welker in Denver, Aaron Hernandez in prison and Rob Gronkowski injured, Tom Brady's chances to win the MVP haven't taken a hit. The 36-year-old future Hall of Famer is tied with Peterson with 10-to-1 odds to win the award.
If the Falcons want to go deep in the playoffs, Matt Ryan will have to take them there. And Vegas thinks that Ryan has a pretty good shot at taking home the MVP this season, ranking him fifth with 15-to-1 odds.
Robert Griffin III
Despite not being cleared to play in the preseason while recovering from a torn ACL, Robert Griffin III has the sixth-best chances of winning the MVP award this season for Mike Shanahan at 18-to-1.
Tied with RGIII with the sixth-best odds to take home the MVP (18-to-1), the second-year Seahawk will seek to bring his team back to the playoffs.
Last year's top pick, Luck closes out the top-10 with 25-to-1 odds at bringing home the trophy. Luck led the Colts to the playoffs in his rookie season after Indianapolis won two games in 2011.
