NFL MVP odds 2022-2023: Breaking down biggest favorites

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Similar to Lamar Jackson, Hurts leads a potent offense thats been among the best rushing attacks in football. Hurts should bring somewhere near 900 yards rushing (on pace for 897), but he also has taken a major step forward as a passer. If he can maintain his completion rate (68%) and aggressiveness (8.1 Y/A), an MVP trophy isnt out of the question as he leads the NFLs best team through Week 14.

Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs:

Swapping Tyreek Hill for JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling hasnt slowed down Mahomes at all. Leading the NFL in yards and touchdowns by a wide margin, the All-Pro QBs chances to win MVP are extremely strong. Especially if he can actuallybreak the NFLs single-season yardagemark.

Amazingly, Burrow got to the Super Bowl quicker than any other No. 1 overall pick in NFL history. Theres no telling what he can accomplish next. Burrows back to posting big numbers, withJaMarr Chasereturning, whats stopping the duo from going on a tear? Yet, he likely has too much ground to make up, only because Mahomes is on a different level, as usual.

Becoming one of the best young QBs in football in just three years has catapulted the Firebaugh, CA native near the top of the NFL MVP odds for the 2022-23 season. Allens ability to put up otherworldly numbers through the air while being his teams most explosive rushing option gives the 26-year-old QB a betting chance, as he is the heart and soul of the Bills. But recent losses and turnovers have set him back.

Tagovailoas incredible run is coming to an end with his recent spell of inaccuracy. But we cant discount his growth. Clearly, some well-earned recognition belongs to coach Mike McDaniel, as well asTyreek Hills sensational season, but its Tagovailoa who has brought it all together. Hes no longer a true MVP candidate after not only missing time, but also performing poorly as of late.

Justin Jefferson, Minnesota Vikings:

Putting his team on his back, Jefferson has seemingly almost single-handedly turned the Vikings into a dangerous team. Regularly a threat to gain 100 yards or more, defenses always have to account for the third-year pro. On pace forjust under 2,000 receiving yardsthis season, Jefferson is a legit MVP candidate, but only if the Vikings finish with one of the leagues best records.

Many expectedRussell Wilsonto be a leading NFL MVP candidate, but instead, its Smith who leads the NFL in completion rate while leading the sixth-best scoring attack. As long as the Seahawks maintain a winning record, Smith will continue being a part of the MVP conversation, but hes fading as of late.

It may sound a bit outside the box since only two defensive players have ever won MVP, with Alan Page (1971) and Lawrence Taylor (1986) as the only members of this exclusive club, but if anyones capable, its Micah Parsons. After taking the NFL by storm as a rookie, Parsons has already tallied12 sacks in 13 games.

Predicting NFL playoff bracket and Super Bowl 2023 winner

Bottom line:As we saw last season, the MVP race doesnt truly take shape until the final stretch of the season, when playoff teams start becoming established.

If were predicting the 2022-23 NFL MVP right now, give us Patrick Mahomes, whos leading the top-scoring offense in football. Mahomes has a chance to break the NFLs all-time single-season passing yardage mark while leading a first-place team. This is the ideal formula for MVP voters.

While its a bit early to go all in on an MVP candidate with so many possibilities, chances are it will be a quarterback. The last time a non-QB won was back in 2012 when Adrian Peterson took home the trophy. One of the above quarterbacks will likely win the award, but players like Derrick Henry or Christian McCaffrey could emerge later on.

Last yearAaron Rodgers was announcedas the leagues MVP for the 2021-22 season on Feb. 10, which took place three days before the Super Bowl. Stay tuned to find out when the NFL plans on officially announcing the MVP for the 2022-23 season.
