  1. Patrick Mahomes – 19.67% of bets

Best Odds: +400 
Worst Odds: +350

Patrick Mahomes has proved he is the best QB in the league and is now gunning for his second Super Bowl. Injuries derailed his chances at this prize last year but if he stays fit in 2020 then he'll be amongst the front runners.

  1. Cam Newton – 13.11% of bets

Best Odds: +3200
Worst Odds: +2500

Cam's arrival in New England has fans primed for a career renaissance. Injuries ruined his past couple of years in Carolina but Josh Daniel's offense will be built to bring out the best in Cam. It's not a shock that people are backing Newton, we've learned too many times that you never underestimate Bill Belichick.

  1. Dak Prescott – 11.48% of bets

Best Odds: +1400 
Worst Odds: +1200

Tom Brady may not agree but there's an argument that with Zeke, Cooper, Gallup and rookie CeeDee Lamb, it may be Dak Prescott who has the best weapons in football. Last year Dak managed to prove all the doubters wrong and he's finally getting respect as one of the very best in the NFL.

  1. Deshaun Watson – 11.42% of bets

Best Odds: +2500
Worst Odds: +1600

When he was drafted his head coach described him as a football version of Michael Jordan. He's demonstrated his incredible skills in his career to date. If the offensive line performs better and he has some luck then he could well make the leap to true superstardom this fall.

  1. Lamar Jackson – 9.84% of bets

Best Odds: +700 
Worst Odds: +550

The current league MVP is the fifth most backed to repeat this year, although he's second most popular with the books. Lamar's ability is unquestioned but it'll be tough for him to repeat a truly historic year.

  1. Russell Wilson – 9.80% of bets

Best Odds: +800 
Worst Odds: +600

Russell Wilson has never won an MVP which seems incredible for a player with so much talent. This year he'll be back in the conversation and hoping to get the prize that it could be argued, he already deserves.

  1. Matthew Stafford – 4.92% of bets

Best Odds: +5500 
Worst Odds: +4000

Before injury Stafford was on terrific pace. Matthew Stafford is, for my money, the most underrated quarterback in the NFL but on a poor Lions team it's always going to be difficult for him to deliver a true MVP season.

  1. Carson Wentz – 3.28% of bets

Best Odds: +2500
Worst Odds:  +1700

Carson Wentz will need to get back to the performances he was produced in the Eagles Super Bowl run if he is to win this prize. Although injury forced Nick Foles into the starting role, it hasn't been forgotten how essential Wentz was to the Eagles' success that year. If he can get back to that level then he has a real shot at this trophy.

  1. Josh Allen – 3.22% of bets

Best Odds: +5000 
Worst Odds: +3300

Nobody divides opinion like Josh Allen. Detractors point to his arm accuracy, whereas his fans point towards his fantastic rushing ability. Whatever the reality of Allen's ability, he is box office to watch and this year could be the one which helps him solidify his reputation in the league. Stefon Diggs gives him the first elite pass catcher in his career. One to watch for sure.

  1. Joe Burrow – 1.64% of bets

Best Odds: +15000 
Worst Odds: +8000

Could a rookie really win MVP? It's unlikely but nobody thought Joe Burrow could win a college football championship before the start of last season, then Burrow delivered one of the great collegiate seasons.

Burrow is a true wildcard but if he adapts to NFL life and plays with anywhere near the ease he did in college thatn 150/1 could be a huge price. The talent around him isn't bad either, Joe Mixon is due a big year, Tee Higgins is a promising rookie and Tyler Boyd could have an elite year, especially if he's joined by a fit and healthy AJ Green.
