2014 NFL Odds to win the MVP

I don’t know if this happens to you or not, but when betting for the NFL MVP Award, you kind of feel is Peyton Manning’s prize to lose, right? He has five of them and the NFL prop betting odds thinks he’s the leading candidate to win it again.

manning_broncosI don’t know if this happens to you or not, but when betting for the NFL MVP Award, you kind of feel is Peyton Manning’s prize to lose, right? He has five of them and the NFL prop betting odds thinks he’s the leading candidate to win it again.

How does this happen? I mean Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, and Drew Brees are always in the mix when you talk about who’s the best QB in the NFL, yet always Manning  wins these types of awards.   The reality is Peyton puts ridiculous numbers almost every year; one fact is that he actually throws more than the other three when in the red zone; that would help.

Can we explore different possibilities other than those four names? I don’t think so.  Adrian Peterson won it two years ago, but he had an unprecedented comeback season, and his team posted a winning record; I don’t see that happening again.

WR Brandon Marshall said his teammate QB Jay Cutler is poised to win the award in 2014; yeah, not buy that one either.

“I want to see what happens when they have a healthy Jay Cutler,” Irvin said. “I asked Brandon that very question; what do you think a healthy Jay Cutler for 16 games [can accomplish]? He said ‘MVP in the league.’ I said that’s high praise right there; you’re just going to take Peyton Manning off that shelf and just going to put Jay Cutler right up there like that? That’s the way he sees it.

Is a receiver worth taking the risk? Is there any value on them? The reality is most of them would be overshadowed by their quarterback, who is always the guy taking the credit for everything. However, having said that, Dez Bryant will be my choice, if I had to pick a receiver, especially considering how the media and the fans love to make fun his QB, Tony Romo.
