2014 NFL MVP Favorites, Odds and Free Picks

NFL MVP Odds Free Picks 2014

The buzz for 2014 NFL football has started as well as the two most important questions, first, who is going to win the Super Bowl (not the Cowboys) and secondly, who is going to win MVP? Today we look at the latter, taking into consideration the current odds as well as some initial gut reaction.

THE FAVORITE

Peyton Manning (7-2)

Last year was amazing, but amazing rarely occurs two years in a row in Denver, plus that Super Bowl defeat had to hurt. I mean even “the bride” would have given up after that whipping. No ‘Kill Bill’ sequel and no repeat MVP performance for Manning.

Bet: $0

THE (OTHER) OLD DUDES

Drew Brees (8-1)

Brees is always in the conversation, but hasn’t put up an MVP worthy season for a few years now. Brees is 35 and the Saints are not the powerhouse they were a couple years back. Still, at 8-1 it’s worth throwing a couple dollars down.

Bet: $10 (win $80)

Tom Brady (10-1)

The rare example of someone who came into the league vastly underrated and will leave (eventually) overrated. Brady had some amazing MVP seasons, but those are way in the past.

Bet: $0

THE “ONLY IF YOU’RE FROM PITTSBURGH” FAVORITE

Ben Roethlisberger (100-1)

Pittsburgh fans still believe in “Big Ben.”

Bet: $0, unless you live in Pittsburgh, then $300 to win $30,000.

THE SEMI-OLD DUDE & SEMI-FAVORITE

Aaron Rogers (8-1)

How did Rogers become such a veteran already? The Packers now need to worry about wear and tear and his next extension – oh how the time flies by. The good news is Rogers is still in his prime (1-3 years remaining for typical MVP like numbers – note: many exceptions, known as the Warren Moon exception). Personally I think he is one of two favorites so I will give him some love despite the unfriendly odds.

Bet: $20 (win $160)

THE VALUE PICKS

Now we’re talking – would anyone be shocked to see any of the four below win? No and look at those odds. This is where I suggest you look to invest, where talent and good odds meet.

Cam Newton (20-1)

If you like Newton I suggest jumping on this one right away because barring injury, the odds will decrease.

Bet: $30 (win $600)

Calvin Johnson (20-1)

Some would argue he has deserved the past two seasons, but because he’s a receiver he has no chance. I agree, but if no one else steps up the past two seasons may help if he puts up strong numbers again this year.

Bet: $10 (win $200)

Andrew Luck (25-1)

In my opinion here is the best value. After last season Luck could easily come out and toss 30 touchdowns.

Bet: $20 (win $500)

Adrien Peterson (25-1)

Here’s my favorite, and yes I know he is not a quarterback and is injury prone. However, what if he makes it through healthy?

Bet: $30 (win $750)
