Caesars Sportsbook releases Super Bowl MVP odds

2 February 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Caesars Sportsbook posted Super Bowl LVI MVP odds last week, with many bettors getting in early ahead of the Conference Championships. As a result, there are tickets on key players at longer odds that are still alive heading into Super Bowl Sunday.

How have the Super Bowl MVP odds been adjusted, though? Matthew Stafford was only (+350) behind Patrick Mahomes (+170), while Joe Burrow (10/1) trailed those two along with Jimmy Garoppolo (+850) and Cooper Kupp (+900). Stafford and Burrow top the board now, with the Rams gunslinger at +120 and the Bengals signal-caller at +220.

“The prices for the quarterbacks seem fair,” said Adam Pullen, Assistant Director of Trading at Caesars Sportsbook. “When you have a Mahomes or Brady, they’re going to be odds-on favorites most likely with their star power. Stafford and Burrow are still the favorites, obviously the quarterbacks are going to be the favorites, but they’re just not as heavy of favorites.”

One Louisiana bettor placed $1,500 on Burrow 10/1 last week for potential winnings of $15,000, while an Arizona bettor laid $1,000 on Burrow 10/1 for potential winnings of $10,000.

Kupp is the only other player who has odds below 10/1, shifting from +900 to +700 following another big performance in the Rams’ NFC Championship victory over the 49ers. The biggest Super Bowl MVP wager put down so far is on the star pass-catcher, as a Colorado bettor staked $6,000 on Kupp +700 for potential winnings of $42,000.

“For a receiver, that’s a very low price,” Pullen said. “He’s just somebody that everybody likes to root for, and if he has any type of a decent game, he’s going to get a lot of votes. There’s obviously the human element to voting, and he’s the type of story that could generate votes to break a tie. If he gets a hundred yards and a couple of touchdowns, which he’s done a lot this season, he’s going to be a likely candidate to win.”

Two more wide receivers are next, with Ja’Marr Chase at 12/1 and Odell Beckham Jr. close behind at 16/1. Chase was at 40/1 last week, whereas Beckham was all the way up at 60/1 before a massive odds shift.

“I think Beckham will get a chunk of the action here,” Pullen said. “He’s a big name and he’d had a resurgence in the playoffs. People know Odell Beckham, and he’s become more of a focal point in the offseason. He’s put up some big games in the playoffs, and he’s going to be a trendy pick for this and first touchdown.”

The first running back and defensive player are both displayed at 25/1. Joe Mixon was at 100/1 last week before coming down to his current number. Another Louisiana bettor nabbed him at 100/1 for $100 for potential winnings of $10,000. Aaron Donald also sits at 25/1, which is slightly down from his previous 30/1 standing last week.

“There’s been a good amount of action on Donald so far,” Pullen said. “People like to bet the top defensive players just because they’re juicy odds. It’s hard for them to win MVP, not that many have. But if any defensive player were to win, he’s obviously at the top of the list. I wouldn’t be surprised to see his odds come down this week.”

Cam Akers follows at 30/1, while Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller shares a 40/1 mark with Tee Higgins. Four players are at 60/1 (Van Jefferson, Jalen Ramsey, Trey Hendrickson and Sony Michel), and another five are in range at 75/1 (Tyler Boyd, Kendall Blanton, Logan Wilson, Evan McPherson and Darrell Henderson Jr.).
