2016 NFL Football MVP Predictions + Futures Betting Odds

Betting NFL Season Props?

The 2015 NFL MVP race became a two-man extravaganza between Aaron Rodgers and J.J. Watt. The two finished with 31 votes and 13 votes, respectively, but it’s Rodgers and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck who lead the way entering the 2015-16 season.

***2015 BONUSES***

Behind Rodgers and Luck leading the way is Adrian Peterson, Watt and Peyton Manning.

Take a look at the full odds below, but first, here’s a glance at the top 10 candidates.

Aaron Rodgers (+500)

Last year’s MVP leads the odds for 2016, and it’s easy to see why. Although it’s impossible to quantify exactly what Best Quarterback in the NFL equates to, the eye test puts Rodgers ahead of the pack. And while it’s impossible to quantify just what Best Team in the NFL looks like, the Green Bay Packers seem to lead the way in most polls when it comes to that category.

Take the best player on the best team, and you’d got a strong candidate to win an MVP any season. That won’t change this year, which is why Rodgers is No. 1 on the list.

Andrew Luck (+500)

Few players in recent memory have entered the league with as much hype surrounding them as Andrew Luck. And few players have lived up to the hype surrounding them as the quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts.

Somehow, someway, the former Stanford Cardinal has made fans in Indianapolis forget about Peyton Manning (or at least as close to forgetting as can be when you’re considering one of the greatest QBs of all time). Last season, the then-third-year man behind center tossed for a career-best 4,761 yards on a career-best 61.7 percent completion rate.

He also threw for 40 touchdowns, which was nearly twice the amount he’d tossed in his previous two seasons.

Adrian Peterson (+1200)

The Adrian Peterson saga continues into the 2015-16 season, but odds are, the tailback will be back in action for the Minnesota Vikings.

The question worth asking here is whether or not he’ll be fresh enough to truly contend for an MVP after sitting out last season. If photos of recent workouts are any indication, the running back appears to be in impeccable shape, which is good news for anyone counting on a bounce-back season.

J.J. Watt (+2000)

If you’re looking for a player who does it all, J.J. Watt is your guy.

As one of the rare NFL players who plays both sides of the ball, Watt is a special player to keep an eye on. He finished second in the MVP race last season, and unless he takes a shocking step back, his current spot of No. 4 on Bovada’s list may be a bit low when the year is all said and done.

Peyton Manning (+1600)

Peyton Manning is not a young man. He’s also not getting any younger. What he is, however, is the NFL’s only five-time MVP, and until he hangs it up for good — or shows actual signs of playing like his age indicates he should — there’s no point counting him out just yet.

Although Manning has admitted that he’s beginning to envision the end of his career, there’s still a stretch of road that he must travel before reaching that light at the end of the tunnel. Last season was a tale of two seasons of sorts for the veteran, so the hope is that in 2015-16 he’ll not only start hot, but find a way to keep up momentum as the year progresses.

Drew Brees (+2000)

The New Orleans Saints should be the offensive powerhouse we’ve seen for years now in 2015-16, but there’s one big question: Where will Drew Brees turn if the offense is stuck in a lull?

With safety net Jimmy Graham now in Seattle, there’s a chance Brees struggles at times this season. He doesn’t exactly qualify as an under-the-radar long shot; however, considering him a favorite is a bit risky.

Tom Brady (+2000)

Bovada has Tom Brady listed seventh in terms of MVP odds. There’s two train of thoughts here.

The first is that they’re crazy. With the quarterback facing a four-game suspension, you know his numbers aren’t going to be near those at the top of this list.

The second train of thought, however, is one that takes a bit of creativity. If the New England Patriots struggle with Brady off the field, a strong second-half of the season could show just how important the man behind center is, which would be a huge case in favor of him winning the Most Valuable Player award in 2016.

Russell Wilson (+2000)

The only question surrounding Russell Wilson during the offseason was whether or not his contract situation would be revolved. With that concern now in the rear-view mirror, Seattle Seahawks fans can rejoice — especially knowing that the quarterback now has the one thing at his disposal that the team has been missing since Wilson’s arrival: a stud tight end in Jimmy Graham.

Jamaal Charles (+2000)

Jamaal Charles is listed at ninth on Bovada’s list, and he’ll have a chance at earning MVP recognition if he can play more like he did in 2013 than he did in 2014. Last season saw him rush for 1,033 yards and nine scored while catching five receiving touchdowns on 59 targets, while 2013 saw him rush for 1,287 yards and 12 scores while catching seven receiving touchdowns on 104 targets.

Le’Veon Bell (+2000)

The last player on Bovada’s rankings listed at +2000 or better is Le’Veon Bell. The next four players on the list jump to +2500, which rounds out our look at the top 10 players with the best odds at the 2016 NFL MVP award.
