Derrick Henry appears to be on his way to returning for the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round on Saturday, and bettors are jumping on him now as a potential Super Bowl 56 MVP.

Henry has not played a game since breaking a bone in his foot on Oct. 31, but Tennessee's star running back has been checking boxes, setting up his return on Saturday.

As a result, bettors have hammered his Super Bowl MVP odds, moving him from +2500 to +2000 and making him BetMGM's largest liability in the market.

The Titans earned a first-round bye after taking the No. 1 seed in the AFC. They'll now meet the Cincinnati Bengals at home, a team that allowed just 102.5 yards per game on the ground during the regular season.

Despite playing in just eight games, Henry still led the Titans with 937 rushing yards on the season. D'Onta Foreman finished the year with 566 yards on the ground.

Henry and the rest of the field are chasing regular season MVP favorite Aaron Rodgers on the oddsboard. Rodgers (+400) is just ahead of Patrick Mahomes (+500), who had the advantage of an extra game to throw up video-game numbers against the Steelers in the Wild Card Round. Mahomes threw for 404 yards with 5 touchdowns in the 42-21 win.

Tom Brady and Josh Allen are right there at +600, with Matthew Stafford rounding out the top five at +1000.

Outside of Henry, Rodgers and San Francisco 49ers playmaker Deebo Samuel (+3000) are BetMGM's biggest potential losses on the award.
