The 2018 NFL MVP is the odds-on favorite to be named the Super Bowl MVP. Patrick Mahomes has been fantastic this season, and he has been superb in the playoffs. Mahomes led the Chiefs back from a 24-point deficit against the Texans, and he overcame a 10-point deficit twice against the Titans to lead Kansas City to its first Super Bowl appearance in five decades. He was brilliant in both games, completing 65.7 percent of his passes for 615 yards with eight touchdowns and no turnovers. Additionally, Mahomes was the team’s leading rusher in both games, showcasing his mobility with a backbreaking touchdown run at the end of the first half against Tennessee in the AFC Championship Game.
At this price, it’s better to simply bet on Kansas City to win the Super Bowl than take Mahomes to win the Super Bowl MVP at -120. Only one player has won the Super Bowl MVP despite playing on a losing team (Chuck Howley), and it would take a gargantuan effort in a loss for Mahomes to even have a chance. Don’t take Mahomes at this price.
We have seen quarterbacks be named the Super Bowl MVP in over half of all the games that have been played to date. Signal callers have been even more prolific when it comes to winning the award recently too, claiming nine of the last 13 Super Bowl MVP awards. That’s why Jimmy Garoppolo has such low odds to be named Super Bowl LIV MVP despite tossing just eight passes in the NFC Championship Game.
Jimmy G will almost certainly throw more passes in the Super Bowl, but Kyle Shanahan has not emphasized the passing game in the postseason. Garoppolo has thrown for just 208 yards in the playoffs with one touchdown and one interception to his name, and Shanahan will likely look to run the ball and control clock against Mahomes and the Chiefs. That’s why the next player on the board is a great bet to win Super Bowl MVP.
Raheem Mostert thrashed Green Bay’s run defense in the NFC title game, and he is my favorite pick to win the Super Bowl LIV MVP. Mostert has a remarkable story, and that can push him over the top if San Francisco wins a lackluster game where no one in particular stands out. He was cut by six different teams before finally breaking through with the 49ers, and he should receive the lion’s share of the work at running back.
The longshot to bet at these odds is Mecole Hardman. Although Mahomes will likely be named Super Bowl MVP if the Chiefs beat the Niners, there is a path for Hardman to be named the best player in the Super Bowl. He has incredible speed and can break a long return or two on special teams, and he can catch a deep ball or two with Richard Sherman likely taking away Tyreek Hill.
