Best Super Bowl MVP odds

The favourite: Jalen Hurts (+115)

The Eagles (-134) are the favourite to win the Super Bowl, making Hurts the obvious first choice to win MVP.

The quarterback isn't racking up video game numbers during the postseason because he simply hasn't needed to. Hurts hasn't eclipsed 160 passing yards or 50 rushing yards in either of Philadelphia's playoff games, but the team has won both contests by a combined score of 69-14.

In addition to the game script, Hurts' shoulder injury could be driving his limited production. The QB missed two of Philly's last three regular season games with the ailment and has admitted in the postseason that it's still not fully healthy.

The extra week off between the conference championship and the Super Bowl will likely serve him well. Playing the most high-profile position on the team favoured to win is Hurts' case for winning this award.

Other Super Bowl MVP choices

Best value: Patrick Mahomes (+145)

Considering nine of the past 13 winners of this award are quarterbacks, it only makes sense that the QBs are the ones at the top of the board.

The case for Mahomes winning is pretty obvious. If the Chiefs win the game, he'll win MVP. There's nobody more important to Kansas City's success than him, and he's able to mask a lot of roster deficiencies.

In a game where he was running around on one ankle and losing wide receivers on seemingly every other play, Mahomes completed 29 of his 43 attempts for 326 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

His placement behind Hurts stems from Kansas City's underdog status. Like Hurts, an extra week off will help Mahomes heal.

Player to watch: Haason Reddick (+3,000)

If Philadelphia wins the Super Bowl, it wouldn't be surprising to see a defensive player win MVP.

Let's take a moment and break this down.

Hurts' postseason numbers aren't blowing anybody away — in two games, the QB has thrown for 275 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. On the ground, he has 73 rushing yards and two scores. Although his rushing numbers are fairly impressive, his passing stats are thoroughly unimpressive for a two-game span.

The rushing attack has seen an even distribution of carries. Miles Sanders (28 rushes), Kenneth Gainwell (26), and Jalen Hurts (20) have all seen 20-plus attempts in the playoffs. Gainwell leads the bunch in yardage (160), but Sanders, Hurts, and even Boston Scott pace the team in rushing touchdowns with two each.

With such a low passing volume, nobody in the receiving game stands out either. No receiver on the Eagles has hit 100 yards in two games, and only Dallas Goedert and Devonta Smith have a touchdown.

With a lack of quality offensive options, the drum beats louder for Reddick. He leads the NFL playoffs in sacks (3.5) and actually paces the league in sacks for both the regular season and postseason (19.5).

If Reddick able to get after a compromised Mahomes, he can put himself in the running for this honour.
