Brady odds on favorite to win his fifth Super Bowl MVP.
There are plenty of things to bet on leading up to Super Bowl LIII, including an exhausting list of prop bets ranging from how long Gladys Knight's national anthem will last to who will score the first points. Of course, one of the most popular items to wager on is who will be crowned Super Bowl LIII MVP on February 3rd.
In a surprise to no one, The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook has listed New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady as the odds on favorite to win the award, followed by Rams QB Jared Goff with odds of 2-1.
Worth noting, a quarterback has won the MVP award in seven of the last 10 Super Bowls. Brady, who is entering his ninth Super Bowl, has won the big game five times and has been named Super Bowl MVP in four of those five victories. Deion Branch earned the honors at Super Bowl 39.
After Brady and Goff, there is a steep drop off in Super Bowl MVP odds, which means a much bigger return on your wager if you select the right non-QB MVP.
For instance, Rams running back Todd Gurley is listed at 16-1 (risk $100 to win $1600), followed by Patriots back Sony Michel, who has 18-1 odds. Backup running backs CJ Anderson and James White are both sitting at 20-1 odds, as is L.A's All-Pro defensive end Aaron Donald.
