With the NFL season already fast approaching the postseason, teams and their players will be looking to do as much as they can to try and get into the playoffs and remain in contention to win the Super Bowl this year.
There have been a number of impressive performances throughout the league so far as we head into Week 11 of the season, with fans having been treated to some of the best football that is possible to view. Indeed, while many will have been entertained by the action that takes place on the gridiron, there have been many north of America that have also been enjoying the betting opportunities that this has brought about.
Punters who participate in NFL online betting will find a variety of options and markets for added fun while watching the games. And, one of those markets that many are interested in is the race to be crowned the 2022 NFL MVP.
With this in mind, we thought we would take a look at some of the leading candidates for the award, and try and determine which individual may have the best chance of obtaining this prestigious personal accolade.
Patrick Mahomes is considered the favorite
Through 10 weeks of hard football, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is thought to be the most likely to be crowned the MVP this season. Indeed, the 27-year-old already has one award to his name after winning it in 2018; the year which was his first as a starter for the organization since being drafted.
So far, he has managed to guide the Chiefs to 7-2, thus placing them first in the AFC West. His own personal stats stand at 2,936 passing yards, 25 touchdowns, and 7 interceptions. With this in mind, it is hardly a surprise he is considered the favorite at the moment.
Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa, and Josh Allen are all in the race
While Mahomes might be the leading contender at the moment, it is important to note that there is plenty of competition for the MVP Award this year.
Indeed, the Philadelphia Eagles’ Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa of the Miami Dolphins, and the Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen are also thought to each be in contention to win the award with seven weeks still left to play of this NFL season.
Some might suggest that Hurts’ chances were hurt in Week 10 as the Eagles suffered their first loss of the season, but the fact that the QB had managed to get the franchise to 8-0 initially is perhaps an achievement that is too hard to ignore.
Tagovailoa has impressed for the Dolphins when he has been on the field, with the Hawaii-native leading the team to a record of 7-1 in the eight games that he has been able to play and start. Josh Allen was one of the betting favorites ahead of the beginning of the season, and with the Bills currently 6-3, it seems he still has an outside chance despite things not going as well as many thought they would in Buffalo.
