Super Bowl 57 MVP Odds: QBs Favored, Chris Jones Brings Big Value

The Super Bowl is always a bitter-sweet time of year for sports bettors. On the one hand, it’s the single biggest betting day of the year. And on the other, it’s the last NFL game for seven months.

We like to focus on the former and squeeze in as many fun bets as possible on the sport’s biggest day. One of the most popular bets on Super Bowl Sunday is the game’s MVP.

Here are the latest Super Bowl 57 MVP odds from top football betting sites.

Super Bowl 57 MVP Odds

The quarterbacks

Unsurprisingly, the shortest odds on the board belong to the QBs. Not only are Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes favored for MVP in the Super Bowl, but they’re also two of the finalists for MVP of the regular season.

Jalen Hurts +110

Had Jalen Hurts not gotten hurt for two games down the final stretch, many felt he would have been the league’s MVP this season. And while he still could be, the consensus around football circles is that Patrick Mahomes will take home the honor for the second time in his career.

But the only MVP that either of these guys cares about is the Super Bowl. Because winning an SB MVP would mean that their team won the championship.

Hurts didn’t have to do much in the NFC championship game, as it was a rout from the get-go after 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy went down.

But the Eagles’ QB looked healthy and efficient, doing what needed to be done against the best defense in the NFL.

He’ll now face a Chiefs defense that is far less potent than the San Francisco 49ers. The third-year pro’s dual-threat offensive brilliance should be on full display in this one.

Patrick Mahomes +130

Patrick Mahomes is widely regarded as the best quarterback on the planet, and for good reason.

In his five years as a starter, he’s been to the AFC championship game five times and will now head to his third Super Bowl.

Mahomes led the league in passing yards and touchdowns this season and will likely be handed his second regular season league MVP award.

He’s also been here before. The 27-year-old led the Kansas City Chiefs to a championship in Super Bowl 54 in just his second year at the helm. He was named the game’s MVP, going 26 of 42 for 286 yards and two touchdowns.

Mahomes is hobbled with a high-ankle sprain right now, but the two-week break should be a blessing for the QB’s mobility.

The longer shots

The Super Bowl MVP has gone to a non-QB 40% of the time in the last ten years. Here are a couple of the best options for players that don’t throw the ball for a living.

Chris Jones +4000

Chris Jones’ MVP odds are oozing with value right now.

The defensive tackle is coming off the best season of his career for the Chiefs, starting all 17 games and recording 15.5 sacks.

He also just single-handedly wrecked the game for Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

If that game were the Super Bowl, there would have been a strong case for Jones to win the MVP. He finished the game with two sacks, including a third-down takedown that essentially ended the Bengals’ season.

If you think the Super Bowl MVP is automatically awarded to a QB, think again. Four of the last ten winners have been non-QBs, including last year’s winner Cooper Kupp.

A defensive player has won it twice in the last nine games (Von Miller SB50, Malcolm Smith SB48).

A.J. Brown +1000

Landing A.J. Brown in a trade with the Tennessee Titans in the offseason has been paramount to the Eagles’ success.

The Ole Miss product has been a pivotal piece in the progression of Jalen Hurts and has been Philly’s big-play threat all year long. Brown led the team in yards (1,495) and TDs (11), averaging a ridiculous 17 yards per catch.

The Chiefs were susceptible to the pass this year and just lost arguably their best cornerback L’Jarius Sneed to a concussion in the AFC final.

While there’s a chance Sneed plays two weeks from now, Brown has big-game potential regardless.
