Let’s look at the 31 player and Field odds and provide a predictably chalky pick based on the player’s position as well as his disposition after his alleged involvement in the decreased PSI of pigskins in a Playoff romp over Indianapolis two seasons ago.

Online sportsbook Bovada has released its MVP odds for Super Bowl LI at NRG Stadium in Houston next Sunday, Feb. 5 (FOX, 6:30 p.m. EST), and, as expected, the game’s two QB’s, New England’s Tom Brady (+160) and Atlanta’s Matt Ryan (+275), are the NFL odds favorites for the game which sees the NFC champion Falcons +120 Underdogs on the Moneyline with the AFC champion Patriots at -142 (Bovada).

Be sure to watch the two No. 11’s in this NFL championship game (NE -3 -125, 59½o -115, Bovada), Patriots’ WR Julian Edelman (12/1 to win MVP, Bovada) and 27-year-old Falcons’ WR Julio Jones (+750 to win MVP, Bovada) as they both should be targeted the most from their QBs, have great hands and always seem to rise to the occasion for the big game as they both did in their respective conference championship games last week with former QB Edelman being targeted 10 times and registering 8 receptions for 118 yards and a TD with the legend Jones being targeted 12 times and having 9 receptions for 180 yards and 2 TDs.

Analysis, Pick

As you can see from the above list of the last 15 MVP winners, nine have been QBs—three named Manning—while a deeper dive revealing 27 QBs have won the award in the 50 Super Bowls. And if looking for a longshot, productive goal line RB LeGarrette Blount (20/1 to win MVP, Bovada), Dion Lewis (25/1 to win MVP, Bovada)—who has played in 16 games with his Patriots winning all 16—or maybe Danny Amendola (100/1 to win MVP, Bovada) are worth consideration.

Here in Super Bowl LI (Coin Toss: Heads -105, Tails -105, Bovada), it seems Brady will want to exorcise his Deflategate demons with a big win, proving a point to the media, league and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell himself and with New England’s spread-it-around Offense (27.6 ppg, #3 NFL), the former University of Michigan backup could amass some really gaudy stats.
