Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the favorite after winning the award last season. 

The 6-foot-3, 230-pound Mahomes closed at 35-1 before the 2018 campaign kicked off—tied for the 14th-lowest odds—while being available around 50-1 in the offseason. He posted 5,097 yards and 52 total touchdowns, along with manufacturing the most yards per attempt (8.79 Y/A) among QBs with at least 300 attempts.

In 2017, Wentz was the frontrunner for the award before tearing his ACL late in the season. The Eagles went on to win the Super Bowl that year, but Tom Brady won the MVP—the third of his career. 

QBs have claimed the award in each of the past six seasons, with the Carolina Panthers’ Cam Newton (52-1) and Atlanta Falcons’ Matt Ryan (75-1) producing the highest odds among that group in 2015 and 2016, respectively. Peyton Manning (2008-09/2003-04), Brett Favre (1996-98), Joe Montana (1989-90) and Jim Brown (1957-58) are the lone players to claim the Associated Press’ NFL MVP Award in consecutive seasons.

Mahomes is followed by Aaron Rodgers, who’s won it twice (2011, 2014), and Andrew Luck, both at -800. Cowboys tailback Ezekiel Elliott is the first non-QB listed at 60-1. Below is the full list of odds.
