NFL MVP Race Takeaways

  • Risers: Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has quietly moved himself into the MVP discussion. At 60-1, Carr now has the 10th-best odds to win the award.
  • Fallers: Despite being on a bye, Tom Brady once again lost ground, dropping from 30-1 to 40-1.
  • Non-QBs: Christian McCaffrey ticked down from 10-1 to 12-1, but has put some ground between himself and the next most likely non-quarterback, Dalvin Cook, who sits at 25-1.
  • Defensive Players: For the second straight week, Nick Bosa leads defensive players at 100-1, ahead of Aaron Donald and Joey Bosa — both listed at 200-1.

NFL MVP Betting History

Over the past decade, quarterbacks have dominated the MVP circuit. Running backs were once a more popular choice, winning seven times between 1991 and 2006, but Adrian Peterson’s 2012 season is the only non-QB MVP season since then.

If oddsmakers had a say in the voting, quarterbacks would command every possible vote considering they are capable of moving the line upwards of six points while a non-QB seldom moves the line even one point.
