Super Bowl MVP Betting Odds

Defensive players rarely top the Super Bowl MVP betting odds table since they have won the award just twice in 18 years.

However, the last player to do it – Von Miller in Super Bowl 50 with the Broncos – is playing in Super Bowl 56 while his defensive line colleague Aaron Donald is a legit threat to take the award.

Donald, arguably the best defensive player of the previous 20 years, was sitting at 14-1 odds over at FanDuel. Meanwhile, Miller was a distant 39-1 as the LA Rams try to terrorize the Cincinnati Bengals’ offensive line (which allowed the most sacks in the NFL this year).

As usual, its the quarterbacks at the top of the table, but Super Bowl 56 shapes up as a unique betting opportunity for bettors trying to predict the MVP.

QBs Top Super Bowl MVP Betting Odds

The quarterbacks top the list, with Matthew Stafford having the best odds at +125 at FanDuel. If Stafford throws a couple of TD passes and the Rams win the game, you can bank on him winning this award.

It would take a dominant defensive game or another dazzling Cooper Kupp performance to take this away from Stafford. The same can be said about Joe Burrow, who is at +230 to win the award at FanDuel. Quarterbacks have won the award nine of the last 12 Super Bowls. 

WRs on the List?

Wide receivers have been an afterthought for this award, winning it only seven times in 55 Super Bowls and only twice in the last 13 years. That could change with the wide receiver talent in this game. Kupp is sitting at +550, which is not great value, but you have to consider he was the best non-quarterback in the league this year.

The real value is with Ja’Marr Chase, who has +2500 odds to win the award at FanDuel. Chase is averaging 116 yards over his last six games and has been one of the best receivers in the league this season.
