DraftKings has reported that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (-7.5) is now the betting favorite to win the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award over Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Tom Brady following his dismal performance against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday night where he threw 48 passes for 214 yards and an interception in the game.

Brady and Kyler Murray were the only players who had odds shorter than +1000 to win the award nearly two weeks ago. However, Murray’s Arizona Cardinals’ defeat to the Detroit Lions (+5.5) on Sunday toppled him from the race.

The strongest candidates for the award are currently Rodgers with +125 odds and a 44 percent implied probability and Brady with +175 odds and a 36 percent implied probability. Clustering behind them are Matthew Stafford, Jonathan Taylor, Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Justin Herbert, Cooper Kupp, Dak Prescott and Murray.

Murray’s +750 odds earlier this month had earned him nearly five times the chance to win the award compared to his current +4000 odds. On the other hand, Rodgers climbed from having +600 odds to only +125, earning him four times the chance to win the award.
