Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (+800) is holding firm in the fourth spot, but also saw his odds fall despite a win this past week.

Favorites to win the 2023 NFL MVP
The race to win the next NFL MVP will continue to evolve over the course of the season. Here’s a look at the current betting favorites. You can also view our list of the best NFL betting sites to check out sportsbooks where you can wager.
- 2023 regular season stats: 67.6 CMP%, 2,697 YD, 18 TD, 10 INT, 94.9 RTG
Hurts was among the five finalists to win last season’s MVP. This year the Eagles are an NFL-best 10-1 and are tied as top favorites in Super Bowl odds. The “tush push” play has made Hurts into the team’s most dependable short-yardage ball carrier, much to the dismay of the rest of the league. Hurts has already rushed for nine TDs this season and is likely to keep tallying scores on the ground and through the air.
- 2023 regular season stats: 68.1 CMP%, 2,917 YD, 21 TD, 9 INT, 96.3 RTG
Mahomes is the reigning MVP following another stellar season, and the Chiefs are 8-3 and in first in the AFC West. Mahomes saw his odds slip after a home loss against the Eagles, but he’s back in the second spot after a convincing win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
- 2023 regular season stats: 68.3 CMP%, 2,618 YD, 13 TD, 5 INT, 98.4 RTG
Jackson has steadily moved up in odds after a strong start to the Ravens’ season. After struggling with injuries and contract disputes last season, he’s been solid for Baltimore this season. The team leads the AFC North with a 9-3 record and is headed into a bye week after a Sunday night win. If Jackson can stay healthy — and if Baltimore can stay in the playoff hunt — he could be a real contender.
- 2023 regular season stats: 69.8 CMP%, 3,177 YD, 22 TD, 10 INT, 103.7 RTG
Tagovailoa has been a top MVP favorite at some points this season, but his odds have fallen along with the Dolphins’ fortunes at times. The team posted a one-sided win over the New York Jets on Friday to maintain a lead in the AFC East at 8-3. Still, the team’s three losses have come against the three winning teams Miami has faced so far this season.
2023 regular season stats: 70.0 CMP%, 2,935 YD, 23 TD, 6 INT, 107.4 RTG
Prescott has been in and out of the top group of MVP candidates, but as the Cowboys have found their stride his odds have improved. He logged four TD passes with zero turnovers in the team’s Thanksgiving win, and Dallas improved to 8-3 with a blowout. Prescott has done a much better job of protecting the football this season, tying his TD total from a year ago with fewer than half as many interceptions.
- 2023 regular season stats: 63.7 CMP%, 3,266 YD, 19 TD, 5 INT, 100.8 RTG
Stroud moved briefly into the top five following a third consecutive win in Week 11, but a heartbreaker of a loss on Sunday dropped the team to 6-5. Stroud is still the only rookie among the top 15 MVP candidates on the odds board, and the numbers he’s put up so far this season show why. The Texans were expected to struggle again, but Stroud’s play has helped the team double its win total from last season.
Longshots to win the 2023 NFL MVP
The last non-QB winner of the NFL MVP award was Adrian Peterson in 2012. Last season, Justin Jefferson was among the five finalists.

NFL MVP line moves
Josh Allen entered last season as the betting favorite. He finished as one of the top five finalists, along with Joe Burrow, Jalen Hurts, and Justin Jefferson, but it was ultimately Patrick Mahomes who claimed the award. Mahomes took over the lead in the odds as the regular season was winding down and never relinquished it. At the initial release of 2023 NFL MVP betting odds, Mahomes, Burrow, and Allen were the top favorites.

Popular NFL futures bets
Betting on NFL futures usually means wagering on season-long outcomes. This includes betting on the winner of the AFC or NFC, the Super Bowl or the MVP. Futures can remain active from the time NFL odds come out through most or all of the season, depending on what you’re wagering on.
Futures betting requires a long-term perspective, as you don’t receive any payouts and your wager is locked up until the outcome on which you’re betting is official.
For the MVP award specifically, the outcome can be subjective. A panel of writers votes on the award. It’s another layer to consider for betting strategy.
As an example, the vote totals of a player who is not well-regarded on a personal level by members of the media can be affected, regardless of that player’s accomplishments on the field.
