Super Bowl Sunday is 12 days away, and prop bets are appearing by the hundreds each day at legal online NFL sportsbooks. Several Super Bowl prop bets appear before the participating teams have been decided, but odds for the game’s Most Valuable Player are typically reserved until the completion of the AFC and NFC Championships.

Patrick Mahomes was the MVP of Super Bowls 57 and 54, and is favored at NFL betting sites to win his third in the span of five years. Why is Mahomes so heavily favored to win if the Chiefs are 1.5-point underdogs?

If San Francisco wins, it will be on the back of either quarterback Brock Purdy or running back Christian McCaffrey. This is causing them to split the odds and push Mahomes to the top of the list even though KC is the underdog.

Over half of all Super Bowl MVP awards have been given to the quarterback position, but there have been occasions where the running back carried the team to a win. Given that it is the final game of the year, there is a high probability that McCaffrey will be leaned upon more than usual, and his +475 moneyline is daring gamblers to bet on it.

In the previous 57 Super Bowls, Chuck Howley of the Dallas Cowboys was the only player to become the MVP that was a member of a losing team.

Who Will Become The Super Bowl 58 MVP?

Does Not Mention Any Of The Above +1800

This Super Bowl prop is taking action on the first person, place, or thing that the MVP mentions while delivering their acceptance speech. Brock Purdy typically mentions God first during his post-game interviews, so if you’re betting on him to win the SB LVIII MVP, consider creating an NFL parlay on the above prop bet.
