One of the biggest regular season NFL games that you’ll ever get comes between the Bills and the Bengals on Monday Night Football this evening.

A man that has a significant interest in the contest is Patrick Mahomes, the quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs. His team is looking to sneak into the top spot of the AFC, meaning Kansas City would get home field advantage ahead of the playoffs.

The Chiefs and Bills are just about neck and neck in the Super Bowl odds race, but one place where they aren’t is in the MVP race. Mahomes is a whopping -800 favorite to win the honor prior to Bills vs. Bengals.

Mahomes was +415 at the beginning of November, but a hot few months for the superstar has helped catapult him to the front of the list.

Another major factor has been the lack of availability from Eagles QB Jalen Hurts over the last two weeks.

Interestingly, while Hurts has been away, the Eagles have lost two games, while they lost just one with Hurts at the helm. Nonetheless, Hurts is now a +1600 underdog to win the MVP after being -178 prior to his injury.

Elsewhere on the board, Bills quarterback Josh Allen is +1000 ahead of his big game. Allen was the favorite for the award throughout the beginning of the year, before bottoming out at +123 at the start of November.

On the other side of the field, Joe Burrow is +750 and the second-favorite for the award. When the Bengals were struggling at the beginning of the year, Burrow was as high as +3500.

Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson is the only other player listed at DraftKings. He’s been given a +5000 price, but his true odds feel longer than that.

The last non-quarterback to win MVP was Adrian Peterson in 2012, and no wide receiver has ever won the award.
