Latest Super Bowl MVP Award odds at BetOnline.ag
Let’s start out by looking at the obvious choices, the quarterbacks. We all know that most of the MVP awards are handed out to the leader of the team, which is always the quarterbacks.
Matthew Stafford is the favorite to win the award by a solid margin.
The Los Angeles Rams quarterback has been playing incredibly well throughout the postseason.
In three games, he has thrown for 905 yards, six touchdowns and only one interception.
On top of that, each of his three playoff games saw him post a quarterback rating over 100 with only one of those games seeing him complete less than 70 percent of his passes.
Stafford has unbelievable weapons on the outside for him to utilize like Cooper Kupp and Odell Beckham and a strong offensive line to sit back in the pocket.
Plus, the Bengals defense allowed Patrick Mahomes to complete 11 straight passes for 127 yards and three touchdowns in one half of action last week.
Stafford may get the same opportunity. In my opinion, I think that Stafford will win the award if Los Angeles wins the game.
Everybody knows how badly he has worked for this moment coming from the Detroit Lions.
Then we have Joe Burrow right behind him.
Burrow’s numbers in the postseason aren’t better than Stafford's, but it’s clear that Joe has a swagger surrounding him that makes him one of the most likeable players on the field.
Voters will see the leadership and impact he has on this team and he would be the surefire choice to win it if Cincinnati wins the game.
Burrow has thrown for 842 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in three playoff matches, with all three of those games being tough down to the wire.
The Bengals aren’t putting up insane numbers, but they are finding ways to win. Sometimes that already makes you a great choice for the Super Bowl MVP award.
It may seem too obvious, but Burrow will win it if Cincinnati beats the Rams. Everybody is in love with Burrow at the moment, and a Super Bowl win would just put him over the top.
Cooper Kupp is the third guy on the list.
There isn’t any other wideout in the league posting numbers like he has this season. This was a record-breaking year for Kupp, a man that only had less than 100 receiving yards twice this season.
He has carried this ridiculous efficiency into the postseason.
In that first game against the Arizona Cardinals, he had five receptions for 61 yards and a touchdown.
He followed that up with a nine catch, 183-yard performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that also included touchdown.
Then finally, he dropped 11 receptions for 142 yards and two touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers.
He’s scored in every playoff game as you can see and has neared 200 yards in back-to-back contests against stout defenses.
Stafford clearly thinks of him as his favorite target, and Odell Beckham takes a large chunk of pressure off of him in passing situations.
Kupp shouldn’t be overlooked here.
Aaron Donald is fourth.
Now, his numbers aren’t great at all.
If you don’t include quarterback hurries or hits, he has very pedestrian numbers in the postseason.
He has just three tackles and 1.5 sacks in their three playoff games. Donald’s impact just goes far deeper than the stat sheet though.
He is considered the best defensive tackle in football and is always throwing plays completely out of sync with his strength and intelligence.
Von Miller has also allowed him to get more one-on-one opportunities to make big plays or rush the opposing quarterback.
He is definitely considered a leader on this team and if he can rack up multiple sacks against a Bengals offensive line that allowed nine to the Titans earlier in the postseason then he may walk away with the award.
Ja’Marr Chase is listed right behind Donald.
Everybody knows that Chase has broken almost every single rookie receiving record in front of him this season.
It’s been a stellar year all-around for the rookie wideout that many thought couldn’t catch during the postseason. Now, he is being focused in every game he plays.
That focus hasn’t stopped him from putting up some solid numbers though.
In that opening postseason matchup with the Raiders, Chase had nine receptions for 116 yards but no touchdowns.
He followed that up with a five catch, 109-yard game against Tennessee after that. Then most recently, he had six receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown against the Chiefs.
In that Chiefs game specifically, he was being double covered practically the entire time until he scored that touchdown.
Kansas City refused to leave him one-on-one down the sideline on any play.
Jalen Ramsey is more than likely going to strap Jalen Ramsey onto Chase throughout the game but he has been able to produce regardless of situation.
At some point, Chase will break free for a big gain. However, if the Rams are smart, they will send so much pressure his way and force his numbers to be low.
Lastly, we have Odell Beckham here. Beckham is almost guaranteed to not win this award but stranger things have happened in the past.
Odell hasn’t been with the Rams that long, but is getting more comfortable as the season progresses.
Stafford and him have started to get on the same page which has resulted in better play on the field. Odell had four receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown in the Wild Card game.
Then he improved his numbers to six receptions for 69 yards against the Buccaneers.
Finally, he took another jump by grabbing nine catches for 113 yards against the 49ers. Every week has been an improvement statistically for him, but he just isn’t the focus point of the offense.
Odell may have some big grabs, but Kupp has consistently been the man in the offense all year and should finish with better numbers than Beckham.
Again, it is a longshot, but Beckham was listed number six on the current odds for the award.
