NFL MVP Odds: Zach Wilson's Mom Scandal is Earning Jets QB a lot of MVP Bets

There are tons of reason why a player's NFL MVP odds would be heavily bet throughout the offseason. However, I'm not sure anyone could have predicted Zach Wilson's rise in popularity among NFL MVP odds and betting.

In case you live under a rock, let's recap what happened. Earlier this week, Zach Wilson's ex-girlfriend posted a picture with her new boyfriend on Instagram. That normally wouldn't be newsworthy, until you realize her new boyfriend is Zach Wilson's former best friend, Dax Milne. In the comments, someone gave Wilson's ex-girlfriend a hard time about moving on to her ex's best friend, and she responded by saying that Zach was actually sleeping with his own mom's best friend.

None of this has anything to do with football, or NFL MVP odds for that matter, but that didn't stop the internet from running wild with the story. We saw memes all over Twitter, reactions on ESPN and,for some reason, a massive influx in Zach Wilson NFL MVP bets. Yes, you read that right.

Prior to this news, you'd be hard pressed to find a single person with a Zach Wilson NFL MVP ticket, except maybe our very own Matt O'Leary, but now Wilson's NFL MVP odds are the most bet option over the last seven days, despite being a massive longshot.

The internet stays undefeated, even when it comes to throwing your money on NFL MVP odds just to be part of the joke.

As you can see, despite the fact that Zach Wilson sits at +15000, his NFL MVP odds have been backed by an insane 31.43% of bettors over the past week. At +15000, his implied probability of winning NFL MVP is 0.7%, but that apparently does not matter when someone starts a rumor that you are in a relationship with your mom's best friend.

Josh Allen, who has long been the favorite to win MVP with the shortest NFL MVP odds in the league at +700, still sits around the 20% of bets mark, where he was earlier this month. Allen is the logical pick, but Wilson holds the edge in offseason drama so he gets the nod.

Rounding out the top three most-backed NFL MVP odds is Rams QB Matthew Stafford. Stafford's NFL MVP odds sit at +1600, but he is backed by 11.43% of bets.

So, if you're looking to get in on the joke, Zach Wilson's bid for 2022 NFL MVP has apparently started.
