On Friday Tom Brady turns 41 years old. And yet, according to Bet 365, he's still the favorite to win the Associated Press's NFL MVP Award this upcoming season, topping a list of about 100 skill players because that's how the MVP Award works:
As you can see (if you have good enough eyes) Brady is a +400 favorite to take the honor, narrowly edging out runner-up, Aaron Rodgers (+500). If you're a gambling fan you already know, but that means every dollar you put on Brady will pay back four dollars if he wins MVP.
Other notables include: Carson Wentz (+800), Drew Brees (+1200), Russell Wilson (+1600), ex-Brady backup Jimmy Garoppolo (+1600), Cam Newton (+1800), Matt Ryan (+1800), Kirk Cousins (+2000), and Deshaun Watson (+2000). As for non-QBs, you got running backs Le'Veon Bell, Ezekiel Elliott, and Todd Gurley leading at +2500. Wide receiver Antonio Brown at +4000. Tight end Rob Gronkowski at +6600. And top defensive players J.J. Watt and Von Miller sitting as long-shots at +10000.
Pawn your assets accordingly.
Brady last won the award, uh, last season. He'd previously brought it home in 2007 and 2010. In winning his third MVP, he joined an exclusive club that only includes Johnny Unitas, Jim Brown, Brett Favre, and five-time winner Peyton Manning. Kill the vibe at a party by randomly dropping that fact sometime.
