With the Kansas City Chiefs set to meet the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 58 on Feb. 11, oddsmakers have set Chiefs superstar QB Patrick Mahomes () as the betting favorite in Super Bowl MVP odds.

49ers quarterback Brock Purdy () and his teammate, RB Christian McCaffrey (), round out the top three favorites to win the Super Bowl MVP award. 

For this year’s game — which brings a rematch of the Chiefs’ 31-20 win in Super Bowl 54 — oddsmakers see Mahomes as the Super Bowl MVP betting favorite ahead of Purdy. Mahomes is seeking his third Super Bowl MVP trophy in five years. The Niners opened as the favorite in the Super Bowl, but it will be interesting to see how the lines move between now and kickoff on Feb. 11.

Below are the current Super Bowl 58 MVP odds following San Francisco’s comeback win over Detroit on Sunday night to set up a rematch with the Chiefs in two weeks.

Mahomes Seeks 3rd Super Bowl MVP Trophy

Mahomes is coming off an upset win over Baltimore by Kansas City in the AFC championship game. The Chiefs entered that game as heavy road underdogs, but relied on outstanding defense and a hot start by Mahomes, TE Travis Kelce, and the KC offense. They jumped out to a 17-7 halftime lead en route to a 17-10 win.

Mahomes posted unspectacular stats — 3o-for-39 passing, 241 yards, 1 TD — but did enough to keep Lamar Jackson and the Ravens’ offense on the sideline, as the Chiefs dominated time of possession, 37:20 to 22:30.

The Kansas City signal caller has proven throughout this postseason that no player is better in big games, and he rightfully enters the Super Bowl as the favorite despite his team getting points. If there’s a player worth betting on to win Super Bowl MVP, it’s No. 15 for the Chiefs, who has already won this award twice in his young career.

49ers’ Brock Purdy Opens as Second-Favorite

After Mahomes, Purdy is the top contender to win Super Bowl MVP. The Niners fell into a 24-7 hole at halftime of the NFC championship game, but rode a dominant second half to another Super Bowl berth. This team is playing in the Big Game for the second time in five years.

Even if San Francisco can raise the Super Bowl trophy for the first time since the mid-’90s, Purdy has to contend with McCaffrey, among other teammates who could challenge him for this award. McCaffrey came up huge in his team’s NFC championship win over Detroit, rushing for 90 yards and two touchdowns while adding 40 receiving yards.

In addition to McCaffrey, wide receivers Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel, plus tight end George Kittle, are all capable of MVP-worthy performances.
