Super Bowl MVP odds
Odds as of January 20 at Bovada
Mahomes, who a year ago was +115 to become MVP of Super Bowl 54 prior to the game, came through for bettors despite a mediocre performance by his lofty standards.
Mahomes finished the game completing 26 of 42 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns along with two interceptions. But he came up huge when it counted the most, in the fourth quarter of Kansas City’s 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
Super Bowl MVP Has Belonged to QBs
In Super Bowl 53, Julian Edelman became the seventh wideout to win the Super Bowl MVP Award. Quarterbacks have won the trophy 30 times, compared to seven times for running backs, four times for linebackers, and two times each for defensive ends and safeties.
