NFL MVP odds: 4 favorites heading into Week 10

With only eight weeks remaining in the 2020 NFL season, four quarterbacks have moved into the conversation for NFL MVP. Here are the men with the best odds.

4. Josh Allen, QB, Buffalo Bills (+950)

After throwing four touchdowns in a 44-34 win over the Seahawks last weekend, Allen has officially put himself back into contention for the NFL MVP. The third-year man out of Wyoming is third in passing yardage (2,587) while throwing for 19 touchdowns against five interceptions.

Allen is certainly the fourth man in this race considering the odds, but he’s worthy of being included in the conversation. Another few weeks like the last one, and he’ll be vaulted directly into the mix.

3. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers (+400)

Rodgers was supposed to be on the backside of his career. After all, the Packers traded up to take Jordan Love in the first round of the 2020 Draft, getting ready to replace him in the coming years. However, Rodgers has turned back time, having one of the best seasons of his eventual Hall of Famer career.

The 36-year-old has tossed 24 touchdowns against two interceptions, all while having no weapons to speak of beyond receiver Davante Adams in the passing game. Rodgers has also thrown for 8.0 yards per attempt, and is on pace for 4,500 yards through the air.

2. Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs (+220)

What else is left to be said? Mahomes is 25 years old and already has an NFL MVP (2018) and Super Bowl MVP (2019) on the mantle. This year, he’s launched 25 touchdowns compared to a single interception, and hasn’t lost fumble. The Chiefs are the league’s best team at 8-1, and Mahomes is peaking lately with nine touchdowns and no mistakes over the past two weeks.

It’s hard to see a scenario short of injury where Mahomes isn’t in this race to the end. Currently, Mahomes is jut off a pace of 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns, something he did two years ago.

1. Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks (+125)

Wilson has never earned a single MVP vote — stop us if you’ve heard that before. Still, regardless of narratives, Wilson deserves the top spot at the moment. He’s on pace to lead the league in passing yards (2,541 through seven games) and is pacing the league with 28 touchdowns.

The only knock on Wilson is the turnovers, including two fumbles lost and eight interceptions. If he can curtail those numbers, Wilson is in great position to add some hardware to his trophy case.
