It’s been quite awhile since the National Football League had a repeat NFL MVP. Back then, Peyton Manning was tearing up the field and bringing home the trophy in 2008 and 2009.
It looks like we may have that happen again.
After tearing up defenses in 2018 and winning league MVP — Kansas City Chiefs quarterback is the favorite to win the MVP for the 2019 season at 6/1 odds, according to FanDuel odds.
The second-best odds belong to Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, at 9/1.
The remaining players on the list and their odds:
Drew Brees 10/1
Tom Brady 10/1
Aaron Rodgers 12/1
Baker Mayfield 15/1
Carson Wentz 16/1
Philip Rivers 17/1
Russell Wilson 18/1
After just one season at play, Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has better odds to take the trophy than some established names that have been in the league for years.
Carson Wentz shouldn’t really be a huge surprise either, since he may have been on his way to capturing an MVP before he went down with an injury during the same year the Eagles captures their first ever Super Bowl victory.
