The 2016-17 season saw a number of top players emerge. Here are some choices to bet on the 2017 NFL MVP this season with NetBet Sportsbook.
Matt Ryan: 4/11
Most experts and online sportsbooks in the UK predict Matt Ryan will be the 2017 NFL MVP. Truth be told, if Ryan were playing for a bigger name team, he would be a shoe-in for the award. Unfortunately, the Falcons just don’t carry the same weight as the Patriots or Cowboys.
Nevertheless, Ryan had one of the best seasons for a QB in recent memory. He held a 69.9% completion rate, with 4944 total yards and 38 touchdown passes. He averaged 9 yards per attempt, the highest in the history of the NFL.
Matt Ryan may not be considered the best QB in history, but his performance this season was nothing short of fantastic. He is likely the best bet on the 2017 NFL MVP, and is without a doubt one of the most deserving players to win the award. His odds are currently set at 4/11.
Aaron Rodgers: 16/5
Another player that some believe is the most deserving of the MVP award in 2017 is Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers. The Packers didn’t have a flawless season, but managed to end the preseason with 6 straight victories to secure the NFC North title.
Green Bay’s record ended as 10-6 in the preseason. They are certainly an underdog to win the 2017 Super Bowl this year, but if Rodgers can play like he did after claiming he would “run the table,” they have a real shot.
Rodgers completed 142 of 200 passes in the last 3 games, for a total of 1,667 yards with 15 touchdowns. Aaron Rodgers is always a consistent player, and appears to have truly reached his potential this season. NetBet Sportsbook lists his odds to win the MVP award at 16/5. He could be considered an underdog bet on the 2017 NFL MVP award, but may be the one holing the trophy at the end of the season.
Tom Brady: 4/1
You can’t talk about potential MVP’s in 2017 without at least mentioning Tom Brady. After returning to the field following the “deflate-gate” scandal, Brady was nothing short of phenomenal, helping to lead his team to the top of the league’s rankings with a total record of 14-2.
Brady has already made history this year with a 28 to 2 touchdown ratio, and earned 3,554 total yards with a 67.4% completion rate. He is falling behind Matt Ryan in terms of accomplishments, but if Brady can help his team win another Super Bowl trophy, he may very well win the 2017 MVP award.
Brady’s odds to win the 2017 MVP is set at 4/1. He has already won the award twice, first in 2007 and again in 2010. If he can do it again he will make UK gambling news and will be one of just a few players to win it 3 times.
Ezekiel Elliot: 28/1
The only player on this list that’s not a QB is Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot. He is leading the entire league in carries and rushing yards, and was a key reason why the Cowboys are the #2 ranked team in the NFL right now.
Elliot might be the most impressive rookie we’ve seen in over a decade. He has the perfect frame for running back, and has already earned the most rushing touchdowns for a Cowboys rookie.
Dallas is now one of the top betting favorites to win the 2017 Super Bowl, and if Elliot can continue to run as well as he has in the preseason, they seem likely to win. Ezekiel Elliot’s odds to win the MVP is currently set at 28/1.
