Favorites to win the 2022 NFL MVP

The race to win the next NFL MVP award has taken several twists and turns since the beginning of the regular season. Here are the current favorites.

Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

In addition to a stiff test from a stellar Bengals team, Mahomes had to battle through a high ankle sprain in the AFC title game. He still managed to deliver. Mahomes threw for 326 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Chiefs escaped with a 23-20 victory to advance to the big game. The superstar Kansas City QB gets a chance to add to his already lengthy resume against the Eagles in Super Bowl 57 on Feb. 12.

Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

Burrow helped lead the Bengals to the AFC conference championship game for the second year in a row, but he and the team came up just short in a close road loss to the Chiefs. The third-year pro had a challenging day while throwing for one TD and a pair of INTs. The loss will leave a mark, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that Burrow is one of the league’s brightest young stars.

Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

After an impressive 14-3 regular season, the Eagles have continued their winning ways with a pair of dominant wins over the Giants and 49ers in the postseason to make it to the Super Bowl. Philadelphia has outscored its playoff foes by a combined 69-14. Hurts has had a big hand in the dominant run, accounting for four total TDs while continuing to demonstrate that he’s one of the league’s top dual threats at QB.

Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

The season came to a close with a thud for Allen and the Bills in the divisional round of the playoffs. The team was a six-point favorite over the visiting Bengals, but Cincinnati took control from the onset and never looked back for a 27-10 victory on a snowy day in Buffalo. Allen finished the game with 265 passing yards and an INT, along with 26 rushing yards and a TD.

Long shots to win the 2022 NFL MVP

At this point, there’s a clear-cut leader in the odds and a trio of other QBs jockeying for second place. Behind the top four favorites, Justin Jefferson is in the fifth spot following his stellar regular season. Jefferson hauled in 128 receptions for 1,809 yards and eight TDs. On Jan. 25, the Associated Press officially announced the finalists for the MVP award, and it aligned perfectly with the top five on the charts: Mahomes, Hurts, Burrow, Allen and Jefferson.

NFL MVP line moves

Patrick Mahomes remains the betting favorite as Super Bowl 57 approaches. The award appears to be his to lose, as Joe Burrow, Josh Allen and Jalen Hurts are well behind as far as the odds are concerned. However, those three QBs have had exceptional campaigns of their own. Allen entered the season as the betting favorite, while Hurts spent some time atop the board as the stretch run began. Mahomes took over the lead as the regular season was winding down and has remained in the top spot since that point.

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 related NFL lines 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. The award is voted on by a panel of writers. 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 their accomplishments on the field.
