Super Bowl MVP Odds: Can Anyone Other Than a QB Win MVP?

The Super Bowl is the biggest game of the NFL season, and it brings with it the opportunity to immortalize one player alongside it as the most valuable player on football’s biggest stage.

So, who'll be crowned MVP this Sunday? Which player will distinguish himself when the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams go head-to-head in Super Bowl 56 on Sunday, February 13?

As soon as the curtain came down on the AFC and NFC Championship games two weeks ago, the markets went to press with a slew of Super Bowl 56 odds covering every aspect of the game and the day itself in its entirety. One of these markets is for the MVP of Super Bowl 56.

Super Bowl MVP Odds - Matthew Stafford

Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford emerged as the early favorite in this market with odds of -108 at DraftKings Sportsbook. But over the week, the NFL odds have moved against him ever so slightly, drifting to EVEN money with this operator. At FanDuel Sportsbook, Stafford’s odds are an even larger +125 – which is a considerable difference between the two sportsbooks.

Stafford answered his critics by reaching the big game in his first season with the Los Angeles Rams, but because the feat was accomplished with a team that was built to win now, it’s is less convincing or impressive than if he’d done it with a team that wasn’t expected right from the onset to compete. The path for the Rams was laid down by Sean McVay over the last few years and all Stafford had to do was to follow its natural destination.

Super Bowl MVP Odds - Joe Burrow

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow took a team that wasn’t expected to compete – Cincinnati started the season as the longshot, afterthought at +15000 – and led them on a Cinderella run to the Promised Land.

Individualism, leadership, performance and courage are some of the qualities that embody the “most valuable player” award and Burrow has all those and more in spades. It’s one of the reasons why he emerges as the second-best to win the MVP with odds of +225 at DraftKings. FanDuel offers Burrow at a slightly better +230.

Super Bowl MVP Odds - Cooper Kupp

Cooper Kupp emerges as the third best bet to be named as the game’s MVP. He is priced at +650 to get the nod. Typically, quarterbacks receive this award. Last season, Tom Brady won it as he led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. Patrick Mahomes was named the MVP in SBLIV after he led the Chiefs in a come-from-behind win over the San Francisco 49ers.

Only four wide receivers have claimed the MVP award in the last 20 Super Bowls and just one in the past ten. Julian Edelman was the most recent wide receiver to be named Super Bowl MVP in 2019, following the New England Patriots’ 13-3 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

Super Bowl MVP - Rest of the Field

Aaron Donald at +1600 is hoping to become the first defenseman since Von Miller was named Super Bowl 50 MVP. However, with his odds in quadruple digits, it only underscores just how much of a longshot he is. The same can be said of Ja’Marr Chase +1800 and Odell Beckham Jr. +2800. For one player in this triplet to win, they’d need to come up with an otherworldly performance that would leave no doubt in the minds of voters.

DraftKings has odds for Cam Akers (+ 3500), Tee Higgins, Von Miller and Joe Mixon (all three at +4500), Sony Michel (+8000) and Tyler Boyd (+9000). By the odds, these are the outsiders to win. Your best bet will be among the top six outlined above.
