NFL Betting: 2011 MVP Odds

By Richard Gardner, Bodog Sportsbook Manager – With the NFL lockout lifted and teams scurrying to fill out their rosters, we here at Bodog’s online sportsbook are also busy putting things together – namely, a bunch of NFL player prop bets for the upcoming season.

In our quest to be the ONLINE LEADER in NFL Gambling & NFL Handicapping information we’re way out ahead of the rest with our 2011 NFL odds articles.

We just released a bunch of numbers for the potential 2011 NFL MVP winner. Let’s check them out:

Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay QB


The defending Super Bowl MVP comes into 2011 as our odds-on favorite to tame home the regular-season trophy.

The Packers return all Rodgers’ key offensive weapons from a year ago – including star WR Greg Jennings and playoff RB sensation James Starks – and the QB himself displayed the maturity and deft play-making ability that could put him in conversations for “Best NFL QB” along with Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. At 27, the sky truly is the limit for Rodgers.

Tom Brady, New England QB


The reigning regular-season MVP comes in at No. 2 on our list of favorites. Last year re-affirmed Brady’s standing as one of the best QBs of our generation — his 9:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio broke his own single-season record; he threw for 3,900 yards with 36 touchdowns and just four interceptions with a 111.0 passer rating, giving him two of the top five season ratings in NFL history.

He, like Rodgers, returns most of his key offensive weapons and should be lighting up defenses again this year.

Peyton Manning, Indianapolis QB


There’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding Manning at the moment. While there’s no arguing his place as one of the NFL’s best (and most valuable) players, a lingering neck injury that wasn’t properly healed during the lockout could force Peyton to miss most, if not all, of training camp.

Manning is 35 and has been one of the NFL’s most durable players – he’s started 208 consecutive games – but a neck injury isn’t good for one of the league’s most active throwers.

Michael Vick, Philadelphia QB


Statistically speaking, no player meant more to his team last year than Michael Vick. Oh sure, Tom Brady’s passing numbers far surpassed Vick’s – the Eagles QB only thew for 3,018 yards and 21 TDs – but his rushing numbers equal that of some starting RBs.

Vick’s uber-athleticism (100 carries, 676 yards, nine TDs) makes him a very legit MVP candidate, because he can essentially play two positions whereas most QBs can only play one. 

Drew Brees, New Orleans QB


Of all the trophies Brees has won throughout his storied career – Super Bowl MVP, AP Offensive Player of the Year, NFC MVP – he’s never been named the league’s most valuable player. Now heading into his 10th professional season at the age of 32, could Brees pull it off?

At 10/1, he’s definitely worth a look. Brees is coming off the second-most throwing yards (4,620) of his career and completed an amazing 68 percent of his passes in 2010. Those are the marks of a veteran, precise passer that can has a mastery of his offense.

He’s definitely one to keep an eye on as far as sleeper bets go.
