NFL MVP Odds

Hurts is given +4000 odds, or an implied 2.4% chance to win MVP. That puts him 14th on the market. He’s ahead of more established Quarterbacks like Kirk Cousins, +5000, and Matt Ryan, +8000. Yet, bettors believe that the Eagles' work this offseason has set up Hurts for a major breakout season.

Over the last 30 days, 25.9% of bets have been placed on Jalen Hurts to win MVP. Second on the market is Joe Burrow with just 14.8% of bets. Josh Allen and Aaron Rodgers combined have seen 7.4% of bets placed on them.

Jalen Hurts isn’t the star on the betting market that Winston was last year. However, he’s still the clear-established favorite to win the award. Hurts has more bets placed on him, 25.93%, than the next two combined, Burrow and Matt Ryan have 25.92% of bets. Oddsmakers clearly think that Hurts is going to take the next step as they have him above Cousins and Ryan on the market, but oddsmakers don’t think he’s going to become above average this year, they think he’s going to be elite.
