Sept. 16 Update
After taking down a Super Bowl contender in Week 1, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray saw his name rise up the odds board for NFL MVP.
Murray is now tied with Aaron Rodgers for the fourth-shortest odds at 14-1, trailing only Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, and Russell Wilson.
Mahomes and Jackson remain in the top-two positions at 31-10 and 26-5, respectively. The pair are the most recent MVPs, with Jackson taking the trophy in 2019 and Mahomes earning it in 2018.
Derrick Henry now has the shortest odds of any non-quarterback at 40-1, supplanting Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey.
June 29 Update
As the NFL season continues to approach, the NFL betting market continues to take shape, with its most recent “transformation” coming thanks to Cam Newton’s signing in New England.
The Patriots moved from 25-1 to 20-1 to win the Super Bowl (you can see all of their odds changes here), and saw increases in their conference and division chances, but perhaps the biggest odds change as a result of Cam’s agreement came by way of his own MVP chances.
Newton was down at 60-1 prior to becoming a Patriot, but as of Monday afternoon, he’s been pushed up to 30-1, making him the 11th-most likely player to win the award.
Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes (4-1) has held the top spot throughout the offseason, followed closely by reigning MVP Lamar Jackson (6-1).
With a new fleet of weapons in Tampa Bay, Tom Brady is the fifth-most likely MVP at 16-1, a number that was up near 30-1 at the end of last season.
And as for the leader among non-QBs, that would be Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey at 45-1.
