According to PointsBet, the NBC Sports official betting partner, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson continues to represent the best bet for MVP, at -110.

Despite the fact Wilson is having one of the best seasons of his career with the Seahawks playing at an extremely high level, the veteran quarterback will have his fair share of competition to win his first MVP award. Quite a few notable names are in the running along with Wilson for the league’s top individual award.

Next on the list is Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers at +400, with Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes at +450. No other players have odds better than +1200.

At +1200 is Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson and Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray are at +2000.

Four players sit at +3300: Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, Bills quarterback Josh Allen, Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and Titans running back Derrick Henry.
