As Week 2 of the 2021 NFL season wraps up, it's never too early to start thinking about who might be crowned as the league's next MVP.
A top quarterback leads the list of favorites this early in the season: Patrick Mahomes. The Kansas City Chiefs signal-caller has +500 odds to be awarded MVP after this season, according to our partner, PointsBet.
Defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady sits just below Mahomes with +550 odds.
In fact, no player who isn't a quarterback has a better shot than 100-1. Running backs Derrick Henry and Christian McCaffrey are the first non-QB names on the current list of MVP favorites at +10000 odds. The duo actually still sit even with Tua Tagovailoa, despite the Miami Dolphins QB's Week 2 exit after injury.
Last year's winner, Aaron Rodgers, has +3000 odds to repeat the award this season. Green Bay's QB has fallen from the +1000 odds he entered the season with as the Packers still search for their first win of the year.
