Mahomes (+120) has the Super Bowl pedigree to take home the MVP award just based on his reputation alone. He’s won it twice already, including last year’s trophy and he’s the leading candidate again in Super Bowl LVIII.

Only once in the past 57 years has a player won the award in back-to-back Super Bowls though, so that might be a strike against him in some people’s eyes. On the other hand, his 14-3 all-time postseason record and a hot playoff season so far at #1 in QBR (Total Quarterback Ranking) are tough factors to overlook.


The next best bet at +225, Purdy is often overshadowed by the collection of offensive weapons like CMC, Deebo, and Brandon Aiyuk around him. But he was the #1 quarterback in the league during the regular season in QBR, ahead of Mahomes and everyone else.

If you believe the 49ers can win the Super Bowl, then the odds are decent that Purdy lands the MVP too.


The highest-ranking non-QB with a chance to win the Super Bowl MVP award is the 49ers’ superstar running back. At +450, he’s a great shot to become just the 8th running back to win it.

Run CMC led the league in rushing this year, and he tied for the league lead in total touchdowns (rushing and receiving) during the regular season.


With a monster game against the Baltimore Ravens, the Kansas City tight end silenced doubters who thought he’d lost a step this season. He seems built for playoff intensity, though – consider that he had 5 TD receptions all season long but already has 3 touchdowns in just 2 playoff games this year, to go along with 23 receptions.

At +1000 to take home MVP honors, he’s an attractive option to a lot of people (not just Taylor Swift).

With two () full weeks to rest his injured shoulder, the 49ers’ star wide receiver could be appealing to some as a +2000 dark horse. With the Chiefs’ D forced to focus on McCaffrey, Aiyuk and Kittle, Samuel could have a big day. He had 12 TDs in the regular season and can hit a game-changing play at any moment.


Pacheco (+2500), the Chiefs’ wrecking ball running back, is a solid option if you think the Niners’ D will focus on containing Mahomes’ scrambles and shutting down Kelce. Even more enticing is the idea that KC will try to run the ball a lot to keep the ball out of the hands of the San Francisco offense.

With 3 TDs while averaging over 20 carries and 80+ yards in the playoffs so far, Pacheco could have a decent shot at Super Bowl MVP.


The highest-ranking defensive player when it comes to Super Bowl MVP odds, the Niners’ Bosa could create havoc for Mahomes and Co. He had 10.5 sacks this season, as well as two forced fumbles. It’s a long shot though, at +6500.

The Chiefs defensive leader is Jones, on and off the field. He’s a high-profile name that MVP voters might like. He also had 10.5 sacks this season and has forced a fumble in this year’s playoffs. If Brock Purdy gets rattled on the massive Super Bowl stage, Jones (+7500) could be the reason and the beneficiary.


If you like really long odds, MVS for MVP could be your guy. At +25000, he is off the radar for most Super Bowl bettors, but he makes big catches in big games. He sealed the AFC Conference Championship game for the Chiefs late against the Ravens, with a crucial deep third-down catch. He also had two catches for 62 yards a week earlier against the Buffalo Bills. If the Niners focus on the short game with Pacheco and Kelce, MVS is the deep threat that could make big plays.

At Bovada, we’ve got the odds even beyond just specific players.
You can go with Brock Purdy vs. the Field, meaning either Brock (+225) will win the Super Bowl MVP, or anyone not named Brock (-325) will take it home instead.

Oddsmakers placed even more faith in Patrick Mahomes vs. the Field – the KC QB is +125 and the field a mere -150.

If you’re interested in position only and aren’t in the mood to pick a specific player, we’ve got Super Bowl MVP odds for that too.

Predictably, someone playing the quarterback position is the favored position to win it, at -345. Out of the previous 57 Super MVP winners, a QB has taken home the trophy 32 times.

The Running Back/Fullback odds to become the Super Bowl MVP are at +365 – a number that might be pretty attractive to some bettors this year, considering the Niners’ RB McCaffrey is healthy and rested.

Bovada bettors can also go for any defensive player at +1100. Considering the Chiefs’ talent in players like Jones or Bosa, this might be a worthwhile play. And don’t forget San Francisco’s star linebacker Fred Warner (+10000 if you pick him specifically), who could really shine if he shuts down Kelce and Mahomes combo.

Better yet, consider this crazy stat: Over the past 8 games, the Chiefs defense has given up an average of just 4 points in the second half. Any defensive player on the Kansas City side could make a big-time impact in the game.
