After winning back-to-back MVP awards, Aaron Rodgers is a +700 betting co-favorite to win again at Caesars Sportsbook, even with such uncertainty about where he will play.
“If he stays in Green Bay, he’s likely to stay the same price. He will not go to a team with less talent. He will only go where he can win a title,” said Caesars Sportsbook Commercial Director Craig Mucklow. to ESPN, while also not assuming regression for the 38-year-old Rodgers. “Age is just a number, because those were the two frontrunners last year [Tom] Brady and Rodgers. “
Four quarterbacks of 26 years or younger join Rodgers among the top five favorites. Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes is the second +700 co-favorite, followed by Buffalo’s Josh Allen (+900), Cincinnati’s Joe Burrow (12-1) and Justin Herbert (14-1) from Chargers.
“It’s a huge market. It’s volatile. It’s generating a lot of interest. We’ll put it up and move the money then,” Mucklow said.
To add more intrigue to the equation, Caesar’s offers odds on triple MVP Tom Brady, even though he recently retired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. “If the greatest ever decides retirement is not as fun as it sounds, and the call to the NFL returns, we’ll put Tom Brady up 45-1 in honor of his age. And in a gesture of faith to our customers, if he does not take a snap all season, we will refund the bets, “Mucklow said.
Derrick Henry (18-1) is the only non-QB among the top nine favorites. A quarterback has won the award nine times in a row and in 14 of the last 15 seasons. Cooper Kupp (25-1), Jonathan Taylor (30-1) and Deebo Samuel (40-1) are also among the top 15 favorites.
Five of the last seven MVP winners went into the regular season with odds 25-1 or longer.
