Super Bowl MVP Odds: Jason Pierre-Paul Backed Heavily To Win MVP
After the Conference Championships we saw a flurry of bets on the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, which saw him priced into +110. That price now appears short, which has led to a large number of bettors looking for value elsewhere.
It's hard to see other favorites such as Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill managing to do enough that they'll win the award ahead of Patrick Mahomes given that he'll likely be involved in the touchdowns they'll need to win it. It would take something truly special.
Likewise if the Bucs were to win then it's likely through a Tom Brady masterclass or an increidble defensive performance. That's what bettors believe too with sharp bettors heavily backing edge man Jason Pierre Paul to win the Super Bowl MVP.
At +10000 he's clearly a longshot to win the award but a huge 26.67% of bettors have backed him since the beginning of the weekend.
If he gets after Mahomes and has another standout performance, such as the one he had in the NFC Championship game then there is every chance that the 32-year old could win the biggest award in this game.

When was the last time a defensive player won Super Bowl MVP?
The last time a defensive player won the Super Bowl MVP was back in 2016 when Von Miller won the Super Bowl MVP as his Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers.
That hasn't stopped bettors thinking that we could see a repeat of that in 2021. As well as Jason Pierre-Paul who leads the betting, there has also been substantial betting on Tampa's Shaquil Barrett (13.33% of bets), Devin White (6.67% of bets), Lavonte David (2.22%) and the Chiefs Tyrann Mathieu (6.67%).
