Super Bowl 53 MVP Odds from YouWager
Through 52 Super Bowls, quarterbacks have won the MVP award 29 times. Unsurprisingly, Tom Brady and Jared Goff are the favorites to win the award this year, but that doesn’t mean it’s a sure thing. Who has a chance of walking out of Atlanta with some extra hardware? Let’s take a look at the top contenders.
The Favorites to Win Super Bowl LIII MVP
Brady and Goff are the top two choices of oddsmakers. The current total sits at 56.5 points, and many observers are expecting an air show at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Tom Brady -125
If the Patriots win and Brady throws for multiple scores, you’re looking at the Super Bowl MVP. The team has been leaning heavily on the ground in the red zone through the postseason, but that could change if the Rams are once again stout versus the run.
Jared Goff +175
Goff hasn’t done much in the postseason, but he’s capable of making noise if the situation calls for it. He has a plethora of weapons at his disposal if the Patriots do another stellar job versus the run in the wake of shutting down the Chargers and Chiefs on that front.
Offensive Players With a Shot at Super Bowl LIII MVP
Both squads are loaded with star power, amd a spectacular performance from one of them could give voters something to mull over.
Todd Gurley +800
Is Gurley not right or is that just a bunch of ado about nothing? We won’t know for sure until the whistle blows, but oddsmakers have him right behind the QBs.
Sony Michel +1600
Michel made his postseason debut against the Chargers. As he enters the Super Bowl, he has five touchdowns on his postseason resume. Michel ran for 100+ yards in both games to boot.
CJ Anderson +1800
Anderson was quiet against the Saints as well, but that came in the wake of three monster performances. Anderson could be worth a whirl for those who think there’s something to the Gurley intrigue.
James White +2000
White has been a huge part of Patriots postseason gameplans, and there’s nothing to suggest that will be changing this week. He was arguably robbed of the MVP in Super Bowl LI versus the Falcons.
Julian Edelman +3300
If Brady is airing it out, Edelman will receive plenty of looks. He has seen the bulk of the passing game targets in the postseason, and that could continue on Sunday.
Robert Woods +4000 and Brandin Cooks +4000
If we get the air show, then the stud wideouts in the game will naturally benefit. Goff’s top two targets have an equal chance at the MVP in the eye of oddsmakers. .
Rob Gronkowski +4000
Gronkowski has been quiet in the postseason and hasn’t had a big game since Week 14. However, he seems awfully confident in this week’s media appearances.
Defensive Players With a Shot at Super Bowl LIII MVP
It’ll take a herculean effort for a defender to take down the award. Here are the two with the best shot at making it happen.
Aaron Donald +1500
Arguably the most disruptive force in the NFL on defense, it’s not too hard to envision Donald making a game-changing play or setting the tone when the Patriots have the ball.
Trey Flowers +9000
Flowers is set to cash in during free agency, whether with the Patriots or elsewhere. A monster performance in the big game will only enhance his value.
