The top nine candidates to win the NFL MVP are quarterbacks according to the consensus Vegas and offshore odds compiled by OffshoreInsiders.com. Of enormous interest to the fantasy football expert and sports handicapper alike, Green Bay Packers signal caller Aaron Rodgers edges out Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers and Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers as the favorite. Tom Brady, pending court appeals, is facing a four-game suspension to start the season and hence is a long shot relatively speaking at 14/1.
“If the Patriots struggle without him and Brady, as the knight in shining armor, leads the Patriots to the division title, the suspension could work in his favor,” points out Bob Warner of Lines-Maker.com. Steelers RB Le Veon Bell is given the best chance of any non-QB, but not a great prospect at 40/1. OffshoreInsiders.com will have winning ATS and totals bets throughout the season.
