  • We're tracking 2019 NFL MVP odds every week throughout the season.
  • See the latest update below, including the biggest risers and fallers.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been among the NFL MVP favorites for the past month, so it’s no surprise to see him settled in as a co-favorite at 3-1 odds.

However, after leading the Ravens to a huge win against the Patriots on Sunday Night Football, Lamar Jackson has skyrocketed into a tie with Wilson as the most likely players to win MVP following Week 9.

Last week’s favorite, Aaron Rodgers, fell from +250 to 5-1 after Green Bay’s offense laid a dud against the Chargers.

Here’s a look at updated NFL MVP odds heading into Week 10.

NFL MVP Race Takeaways

  • Risers: Dak Prescott was another big riser, improving from 30-1 to 16-1.
  • Fallers: Tom Brady is the most noteworthy of the week’s fallers, dropping from 20-1 to 30-1 after struggling against Baltimore.
  • Non-QBs: Christian McCaffrey has once again solidified himself as the most likely non-quarterback to win the award, jumping from 20-1 to -10-1.
  • Defensive Players: For the first time this season, Nick Bosa has set himself apart among defensive players. Bosa is now 100-1, ahead of Aaron Donald and Joey Bosa — both listed at 200-1.

NFL MVP Betting History

Over the past decade, quarterbacks have dominated the MVP circuit. Running backs were once a more popular choice, winning seven times between 1991 and 2006, but Adrian Peterson’s 2012 season is the only non-QB MVP season since then.

If oddsmakers had a say in the voting, quarterbacks would command every possible vote considering they are capable of moving the line upwards of six points while a non-QB seldom moves the line even one point.
