There’s all different kind of ways to bet on the Super Bowl. Sure, the most popular ways are to make a wager on the side or total. A lot of money will also come in on prop wagers. One of the more popular prop bets is the odds to win the Super Bowl MVP.
I’ve include the odds to win the MVP for Super Bowl 55 below. There’s a number of players listed from both teams.
The favorite to win the award is Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He’s currently listed at -120, which means for every $120 you risk you would get back $100if he were to win. The player with the next best odds is the Bucs Tom Brady at +200.
Player Odds to Win Super Bowl LV MVP Award
The fact that the two signal callers have the best odds to win the award, shouldn’t come as a surprise. Looking back over the year at the Super Bowl MVP Winners, you will see the position has dominated the award.
There have been 54 MVP awards given out and 30 of those have gone to the quarterback of the winning team.
We did just have a non-quarterback win recently with Patriots’ wideout Julian Edelman. Edelman was the first wide receiver to win the award since Santonio Holmes won it with the Steelers back in Super Bowl XLIII.
We put such an emphasis on the quarterback position that it becomes nearly impossible for them to not win the award, especially with the way teams are scoring.
You definitely have to believe that if Kansas City comes out on top, Mahomes will be the winner. While there’s a good chance Brady would be the winner if Tampa were to win, I don’t think it’s as sure as a thing.

Remember, in order for a player to win the award his team likely has to join the list of Super Bowl winners. It’s tough to play well enough for the losing team to deserve this much credit.
