So, which stars are the sportsbooks’ favorites to win the NFL MVP for 2019?

Russell Wilson 5/2

Despite losing to the Baltimore Ravens 30-16 in Week 7, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson leads NFL MVP odds. Wilson has already thrown for 15 touchdowns while tossing a mere one interception. He has also thrown for over 1,900 yards in seven games this season.

The Super Bowl XLVIII winner is the frontrunner for the NFL MVP award but needs to ensure the Seahawks reach the playoffs to guarantee he wins the trophy for the first time. A former Rookie of the Year, Wilson’s first interception of the season came in Week 7 against the Ravens. It was a big pick as the Ravens returned it for six. Still, Wilson leads the way in NFL MVP betting odds.

Deshaun Watson 6/1

Quarterback Deshaun Watson has led the Houston Texans to a 4-3 record after seven weeks. The Texans are in second place in the AFC South behind the first place Indianapolis Colts. Watson’s numbers are similar to Wilson’s as the Houston signal caller has thrown for 1,952 yards and 13 touchdowns. 

Watson has tossed five interceptions compared to Wilson’s one after seven games. The quarterback was also unable to lead his team to an NFL Week 7 win as Houston fell 30-23 to the Colts. 

With Mahomes now out for the next month due to a knee injury and the odds shifting for the NFL MVP award, Wilson or Watson could land the trophy by merely playing a good season rather than an exceptional one.   

Aaron Rodgers 10/1

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is in a brilliant position to win his third career NFL MVP award. Rodgers has the Packers on top of the AFC North with a 6-1 record. Green Bay has won three straight games while Rodgers has tossed over 230 yards in each of those victories. 

Rodgers last won the NFL MVP award in 2014. While Rodgers’ is third as sportsbooks’ favourite to win the NFL MVP trophy, he has the best numbers of the top three candidates. Rodgers has tossed for 2,019 yards, 13 touchdowns, and just two interceptions. He has also completed 65% of his passes. 

To compare Rodgers numbers against his 2014 MVP winning season, the quarterback ended the year with 38 touchdowns, 4,381 yards passing, five interceptions, and a 66% pass completion rate. Rodgers is on a similar pace to his 2014 numbers. After seven weeks, he had tossed 18 touchdowns and 1,674 yards. Rodgers really stands out right now and looks good to be the next NFL MVP winner. e Baltimore Ravens 30-16 in Week 7, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson leads NFL MVP odds.
