Super Bowl MVP Best Bet 2023
Jalen Hurts, QB, Philadelphia Eagles (+110)
Hurts has been the MVP of the postseason thus far, flawlessly navigating relatively tame NFC waters through the NFL playoffs.
Mahomes is likely to be named regular-season MVP, but there’s no reason why Hurts shouldn’t be deemed the favorite to win the honors at the Super Bowl. The Eagles are favored, and quarterbacks often get the benefit of the doubt in games where a clear MVP doesn’t emerge.
With the plus-money odds, wagering on Hurts will yield a small profit ($1.10 per $1 wagered) if, as expected, he is named game MVP.
Super Bowl MVP Favorites
Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs (+130)
Mahomes, like Hurts, is a logical option if you feel the Chiefs will win instead of the Eagles. Mahomes, who was named game MVP when the Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV, has willed Kansas City back to the title game for the third time in four seasons.
Mahomes will likely need to have an enormous game to knock off the Eagles, and he’s defied the odds all season. Still, the lasting image of his most recent Super Bowl performance was him running for his life against the dominant Buccaneers defense in Super Bowl LV.
But with two weeks to heal his ailing ankle, Mahomes should enter Super Bowl LVII as dangerous as ever.

Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs (+1000)
Kelce is realistically the only other Chiefs offensive player, aside from Mahomes, capable of winning game MVP honors. He has been his quarterback’s safety net all season and has had an enormous postseason with three TDs and 176 receiving yards in just two games.
Kelce has had three multi-TD games in the postseason, including a four-TD game against the Raiders on Oct. 10 and a two-score game in the divisional round against the Jaguars. If he has two or three TDs, or even an eight- or nine-catch, 120-yard game and the Chiefs win, he will win game MVP, even though it’ll be Mahomes throwing to him.
Super Bowl MVP Sleepers & Value Bets
Devonta Smith, WR, Philadelphia Eagles (+2500)
Last season, wide receiver Cooper Kupp won the game MVP by putting up an enormous performance against the Bengals secondary. Smith’s running mate A.J. Brown may seem like the Kupp-comp, but Smith has become more than just a big-play threat, averaging almost six catches per game this season.
Hurts is the most likely candidate to win Super Bowl MVP from the Eagles, but there is a scenario where Smith steals the award with an 8-9 catch, 110-yard, two-TD performance. With these odds, it’s worth a sprinkle.
Chris Jones, DT, Kansas City Chiefs (+4000)
We all remember how Von Miller wrecked Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers’ championship hopes on his way to winning Super Bowl 50 MVP. Jones is the Chiefs’ version of that, as proven by his team-high 15.5 sacks and two-sack performance against Joe Burrow and the Bengals in the AFC Championship Game.
Haason Reddick is the Eagles’ version of Jones, so if you think he will wreck the game and steal the MVP, consider a sprinkle on him at +5000.
A defensive player has only won game MVP eight times, but a $10 bet on Jones as MVP will pay $400, making it absolutely worth considering.
How to Bet on Super Bowl MVP 2023
The first thing you need to think about when placing a bet on Super Bowl MVP is, does this player play for the team that will win the game?
The Super Bowl MVP comes from the championship team, so it’s important to place a wager on a player who you think plays on the winning team.
Betting on the Super Bowl MVP instead of the Super Bowl winner can be a terrific way to find value. For example, let’s say that you like the Cincinnati Bengals (+800) to win the Super Bowl. If you stake $100 on this bet, you would win $800.
However, you can get more value on this bet by choosing Joe Burrow (+1000) to win Super Bowl MVP, where risking $100 would pay $220. It’s highly likely that Burrow wins this award if Cincinnati wins it all.
Two Super Bowl MVP trends to remember:
(1) The prudent play when selecting your Super Bowl MVP is to pick a quarterback. 31 quarterbacks have won this award out of 56 Super Bowls (55.3%).
The NFL is more of a passing league nowadays, which is further reflected in the recent award winners: quarterbacks have won Super Bowl MVP in 11 of the past 16 years.
(2) The next closest positions are wide receiver (8) and running back (7).
It’s interesting to note that a wideout has won the award five times in the last 17 Super Bowls, including Rams receiver Cooper Kupp, who won the MVP in 2022.
A running back has not won Super Bowl MVP since Terrell Davis in 1998.
This means that if you want to make a longshot bet on Super Bowl MVP, your best choice would be to select a wide receiver rather than a running back, especially due to the pass-heavy nature of today’s NFL. There has never been a tight end that won this award.
