The race for 2021 NFL MVP took a strange turn as Bills QB Josh Allen assumed favorite status this week despite coming off of Buffalo’s bye.
FanDuel is among the sportsbooks that have Allen at the top of their oddsboards:

The quarterback-laden list features only one non-passer in the top-nine selections. Derrick Henry, the powerful Titans RB who leads the league in rushing with 869 yards, remains a longshot to become NFL MVP. Then-Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was the last non-QB to win the award, in 2012.
Since then, the MVP has been a quarterback for eight consecutive years. Aaron Rodgers, the 202o winner, has captured the prize three times in his career. Kyler Murray, among the favorites for this year’s award, and the undefeated Cardinals square off against Rodgers and the one-loss Packers on Thursday night in Phoenix.

As you should with any wager, shop around the sports betting market for the most attractive odds for your MVP pick.
Wither Patrick Mahomes?
Mahomes was an MVP favorite at some books, including +550 at FoxBet before the season kicked off. Kansas City’s recent collapse has left the Chiefs tied for last place in the AFC West at 3-4 and dropping down the Super Bowl 2022 oddsboard.
It’s also left the MVP quest for Mahomes in tatters, and the current odds reflect that. He’s +5000 at both FanDuel and Points Bet and +4000 at DraftKings.
