Josh Allen is in a dead heat with Dak and Brady

Josh Allen (+450) plays Tennessee on Monday Night Football before matchups with the Dolphins, Jaguars, and Jets so don’t expect him to relinquish his pole position anytime soon. Dak Prescott (+500) was just as masterful in the Cowboys’ 44-20 win over the division-rival Giants, throwing for 302 passing yards with three TDs. Next up is a date with New England and the same Bill Belichick defense that slowed Tom Brady (+500) in Week 4.

The 44-year-old Buccaneer followed up his mediocre showing in Foxborough by putting up 411 yards and five touchdowns in a 45-17 destruction of the Dolphins on Sunday. And, as we pointed out in our column last week when Brady was at +900, his next seven games come against clubs unlikely to make the NFL playoffs

Justin Herbert pulls ahead of Kyler Murray

Justin Herbert (+625) is hot as any quarterback in the league right now. After tossing seven combined touchdowns in victories over the Chiefs and Raiders the past two weeks, the standout sophomore accounted for 427 total yards and five touchdowns in a back-and-forth slug-fest with the Browns on Sunday.

Next up is a date with Lamar Jackson (+1600) and the Ravens, but the Chargers’ schedule softens considerably after their Week 7 bye.

Kyler Murray (+650) rounds out the top five. The league’s most electrifying player put up his lowest-wattage performance of the season in Week 5, throwing for 230 yards and a TD in a 17-10 victory over the 49ers. A huge game between his undefeated Cardinals and the Browns beckons this Sunday, as well as a Week 8 Thursday nighter in primetime versus reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers (+1200) and the Packers.

With Patrick Mahomes (+1000) fading from contention, this promises to be the most exciting NFL MVP race in years with the GOAT Tom Brady looking to fend off a new generation of star quarterbacks (Allen, Dak, Herbert, and Kyler) and claim the honor for the fourth time in his career.
