However, given the type of defense the Atlanta Falcons employ and the type of flexibility the New England Patriots have on the offensive end, there are some other options to explore, so let’s go through the list of possible Super Bowl MVP candidates.

2017 Super Bowl LI MVP Odds – Tom Brady -115
If you think the Patriots win, then this is the safest bet on the board. The Patriots don’t have that one dominate receiver that I could see winning the MVP.
Brady will more than likely just facilitate the ball around to Chris Hogan, Julian Edelman, and Martellus Bennett. That’s about it for Brady, you know what you are getting with the two-time Super Bowl MVP.
2017 Super Bowl LI MVP Odds – Matt Ryan +175
If you think the Falcons win, then this is the safest bet on the board. There are a couple of ways the Patriots might play this Falcons offense. One: They use Malcolm Butler to shadow Julio Jones. Or they they put Butler on Mohamed Sanu and use a safety over the top exclusively on Jones.
They’ll probably employ both as the game progresses, but wither way, there are so many weapons on this team that Ryan doesn’t have to just go to Jones. Taylor Gabriel will have his moments to pop the top off the secondary.
Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman are two terrific pass catchers out of the backfield. Austin Hooper at tight end will have his moments to split the seams. What I’m getting at is not one specific player may end up dominating in this game.
Ryan may end up throwing three touchdowns to three different players and throwing for 300 yards.
2017 Super Bowl LI MVP Odds – Dion Lewis +1800/LaGarrett Blount +2000
The Patriots have the ability to run the ball and defensively the Falcons struggle to stop the run. I go back to how the Patriots-Seahawks game from earlier this season.
The Seahawks held Brady to zero touchdowns. How the Patriots scored was from LaGarrett Blount from at the goal line. Blount was able to pound it in three times in that game.
The Falcons employ that same sort of defensive mentality; limit the big play, don’t get beat deep, and make the opposition earn every yard. If the Falcons do that then Brady might not put up the gaudy stats.
Instead, it might be Blount or Dion Lewis getting the touchdowns and nabbing the MVP if the Patriots win.
However, will it be Blount or will it be Lewis getting the yards and touchdowns? Blount was the workhorse for the entire regular season, but things have shifted since Lewis has gotten healthy.
He has been getting his fair share of carries and, of course, his targets out of the backfield. I’d look to get a package deal on both to cover your end.
2017 Super Bowl LI MVP Odds – Vic Beasley +5000
If you think the Falcons will win and you want some value on the board, I’d look at Vic Beasley. Beasley is a dominate pass rusher in the same vain as last year’s Super Bowl MVP Von Miller.
It’ll be a tough task going up against Marcus Cannon, but if Beasley does hit Brady time and time again and gets a couple of sacks and possibly a forced fumble, as well, Beasley would be a strong candidate to win MVP honors and at 50/1 that’s a ton of value right there.
