Quarterbacks have captured Super Bowl MVP in four of the past six seasons. While that makes Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts the obvious frontrunners to claim the award this year, there are a number of intriguing longshots on the board.
Before we check the Super Bowl MVP Betting props and make our picks, here’s where you can find the best Super Bowl betting tips.
Super Bowl 57 MVP
Patrick Mahomes or Jalen Hurts?
Jalen Hurts (+110) ran for his 15th touchdown of the season in a 31-7 victory over San Francisco in the NFC Championship Game. The dual-threat superstar passed for 3,701 yards, 22 TDs and six interceptions in 2022 with 760 yards on the ground. Hurts was leading the NFL MVP race before missing two games with a shoulder injury. That opened the door for Patrick Mahomes (+130), who finished the year with a career-high 5,250 passing yards, 41 TDs and 12 picks.
Mahomes won the Super Bowl MVP in 2020 but struggled in a 31-9 blowout defeat to the Buccaneers two years ago. The 27-year-old could become the first player since Kurt Warner in 1999 to win the NFL MVP and Super Bowl MVP in the same campaign. However, he’ll have to deal with a ferocious Eagles pass rush that led the league with 70 sacks this season.
Mahomes vs. Hurts is historic.

Travis Kelce or AJ Brown?
Cooper Kupp was named Super Bowl 56 MVP after hauling in 98 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams’ 23-20 win over the Bengals last year. Travis Kelce (+1200) could certainly follow in his footsteps. Kelce went for 78 yards and a TD in Kansas City’s 23-20 triumph over Cincinnati in the AFC Championship Game. In addition to finishing the year with 1,338 yards and 12 scores, the future Hall of Famer has nine TDs in his last eight playoff games while averaging over 100 receiving yards.
AJ Brown (+1300) has been practically invisible in the postseason with only seven receptions for 50 yards. However, the Eagles were content to keep the ball on the ground in blowout victories over the Giants and Niners.
Super Bowl MVP longshots
Devonta Smith (+2400) has been more productive than A.J. Brown in the playoffs. The Slim Reaper also finished the regular season on a tear, with four 100+ yard outings in the final six games. Miles Sanders (+3100) scored 11 TDs in 2022 and punched in two more on Sunday. On the other side of the ball, Haason Reddick (+5000) already has 3.5 sacks this postseason after racking up 16 during the year.
Marquez-Valdes-Scantling (+6000) is unlikely to repeat his 6-for-116-yard, TD performance from the AFC Championship. Isiah Pacheco (+7500) ran for 95 yards and a TD versus the Jags in the Divisional Round. Chris Jones (+5000) sacked Joe Burrow twice on Sunday, showing the world why he’s nominated for the 2022 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. The defensive tackle was instrumental in the Chiefs’ Super Bowl 54 win over the Niners.
Chris Jones finished with a team-high 6 QB pressures in the AFC Championship, his 3rd-most in a game this season.

Make no mistake, Super Bowl MVP is a quarterback’s award to lose. But voters could be eager to make Travis Kelce (+1200) the first-ever tight end to claim the honor. Haason Reddick (+5000) and Chris Jones (+5000) could also deliver game-wrecking performances reminiscent of Von Miller’s Super Bowl 50 outing.
