All Of The 2012 NFL MVP Odds Can Be Found Below

Drew Brees Super BowlSeveral players have started off the 2012 NFL schedule in fine form, and they are going to be the favorites on the odds to win the MVP award in the NFL. Don’t miss our NFL MVP odds, as we take a look at the odds near the halfway point of the season.

It’s tough to think that there really isn’t a bona fide favorite on the odds to win the MVP. At the moment, the man getting the nod is the Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan (Favorite To Win NFL MVP: 5 to 1 at JustBet Sportsbook). Matty Ice is the best player on what is statistically the best team in the NFL. He has a great set of receivers, and all three of TE Tony Gonzalez, WR Roddy White, and WR Julio Jones might all get to 1,000 yards by the end of the campaign. Ryan, as a result, has some big time stats. The Boston College product has thrown for 1,756 yards, putting him on a clip for 4,683 yards this year. He also has 14 TDs against just six picks. That leaves him fourth in the league in passing yards, tied for second in touchdowns, and fifth in quarterback rating. We aren’t so sure that Matty Ice is going to be able to stay here for the whole year, but there is no denying that he is the favorite at the moment.

We still can’t help but wonder if the man that is going to end up winning the MVP Award this year is New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees (2012 MVP Odds: 12 to 1 at JustBet Sportsbook). Brees has a big strike against him, knowing that he is on a team that lost its first four games of the year. But how dramatic would it be to see Brees lead his team all the way back to the playoffs and become the second team ever to come from 0-4 to get into the second season. Brees has thrown for 14 TDs, tied with Ryan and others, and he is on a clip to throw for 5,504 yards, which would break the record for the most yards in a single season that he set last year. This is a great price on a man that clearly would be the MVP of the league if he were to get his team back into the push for the playoffs this year.

With so many different options this year, there is a real chance that The Field (Odds To Win 2012 MVP: 5 to 1 at JustBet Sportsbook) ends up taking the MVP Award. There are a lot of fantastic options here on this list, but there are a bunch that aren’t as well. Both of the best defensive players in the league at the moment, DE JJ Watt of the Houston Texans and LB Clay Matthews of the Green Bay Packers. The league’s leading rusher, RB Jamaal Charles isn’t on this MVP list, nor is the league’s leading receiver, WR AJ Green. Those are a heck of a lot of players that could all legitimately win the MVP Award this year, though it is going to take a whole heck of a lot for that to happen. We do think that in the end, one of the top quarterbacks in the league will end up winning this award, but at 5 to 1, there is a good enough chance for someone off the board to end up taking the MVP. We’d much rather have the field than someone like Eli Manning, Aaron Rodgers, or Peyton Manning, all of which are 5 to 1 as well.

NFL Betting: 2010 NFL Draft Props by Position (4/19)

April 19th, 2010 by Adam Markowitz (Bankroll Sports Columnist) | Posted in NFL Football   Comments Off on NFL Betting: 2010 NFL Draft Props by Position (4/19)

NFL Draft betting action kicked off this morning at BoDog Sportsbook, as a plethora of props opened up for us to pick apart. Here’s a few that we’re focusing in on for Thursday night’s first round!

Prop Bet #1: How many running backs will be drafted in Round 1?: Taking the over 1.5 at -350 odds seems like an absolute slam dunk, but maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to react this way. Sure, Clemson RB CJ Spiller is going to go at some point during the first round. However, beyond him, there really aren’t a ton of running backs that just scream first round talent. Unless someone is reaching, grabbing a guy like Fresno State’s Ryan Mathews isn’t going to be likely until the 20s. Yes, Cal’s Jahvid Best could also be a possibility, as could Auburn’s Ben Tate or Georgia Tech’s Jonathan Dwyer for real reaches. The Houston Texans at #20 could come out and draft a running back, and they could also do so by trading back into the back end of the first round as well. Aside from that though, perhaps Philadelphia could use some running back depth, as could Arizona at #26 or San Diego at #28. Though the prospects are good for another back to be taken, it’s probably worth the stab at the long price that Houston goes with a safety or a corner and everyone else in the draft decides to go with either linemen or defense.

Selection: Under 1.5 running backs drafted in Round 1 +275 at BoDog Sportsbook

Prop Bet #2: How many wide receivers & tight ends will be drafted in Round 1?: This may not be a slam dunk of a prop either, but it really may look like it when the round is said and done. Someone at some point is going to take Oklahoma State’s Dez Bryant in Round 1, and whomever that is will probably get themselves a steal, particularly if he lasts into the late teens or early 20s. Though there aren’t a lot of teams out there that are guaranteed to draft offense, there are some other fantastic playmakers that are going to be available at the back end of this round as well. Look for TE Jermaine Grisham to hear his name called in the 20s, which could set the stage for a guy like Notre Dame’s Golden Tate, Illinois’ Arrelious Benn or Georgia Tech’s Demaryius Thomas to fill out our allotment of pass catching options to cash a winning ticket for us.

Selection: Over 2.5 wide receivers & tight ends drafted in Round 1 -115 at BoDog Sportsbook

Prop Bet #3: How many offensive linemen will be drafted in Round 1?: Let’s just throw some names out there of absolute sure fire first round locks for the hogs up front. Oklahoma State’s Russell Okung, Iowa’s Bryan Bulaga, Oklahoma’s Trent Williams, and Maryland’s Bruce Campbell are probably all coming off the board in the first ten selections. It seems likely that Rutgers’ Anthony Davis and Florida’s Maurkice Pouncey will also be picked amongst the first 32. Beyond that six, USC’s Charles Brown, Idaho’s Mike Iupati, and Indiana’s Rodger Saffold are all possibilities. So basically what we’re asking for with this prop is to see the six should be first rounders go, and then just one more. It is becoming more and more trendy to spend first round picks on offensive linemen, and we expect that to continue with at least seven selected in Round 1.

Selection: Over 6.5 offensive linemen drafted in Round 1 -240 at BoDog Sportsbook
