MVP market hotting up as Super Bowl XLIX approaches
If you bet on the MVP market ahead of last year’s Super Bowl, and if you don’t own a crystal ball, chances are you walked away empty handed.
Malcolm Smith was a surprise winner for many reasons, and his odds of +10000 to repeat the feat are testament to that, but often the market is easier to predict.
Super Bowl XLIX MVP Betting Odds:
Tom Brady +150
Russell Wilson +225
Marshawn Lynch +450

Tom Brady is chasing his fourth Super Bowl ring and his third MVP award after 2002 and 2004, and the winning quarterback is often the recipient of that particular honor. It is unsurprising, therefore, that Brady’s opposing QB Russell Wilson is second favorite.
However recent years have seen unlikely names buck the trend, and while a repeat for Smith might not be high on most people’s expectations, there are a few other outside bets who have captured people’s attention.
Richard Sherman (+2500) has hit the headlines in the days leading up to the game, while Brandon LaFell (+5000) has been talked up as a potential MVP this time around (all odds from AllYouBet Sportsbook are subject to change).
So who’s your money on this year? Are you going for one of the favorites or does an outside bet take your fancy? Have your say in the comments section below.
