Super Bowl MVP Pick 2017
Super Bowl LI MVP Odds
Tom Brady vs. Matt Ryan
This year’s Super Bowl features a matchup of MVP candidate quarterbacks. Both Matt Ryan and Tom Brady set records during the 2016 NFL season and their impressive play continued into the postseason. Tom Brady has the edge in terms of Super Bowl experience, but the Atlanta Falcons' offense is more dynamic and – with Ryan playing the best football of his career – nearly unstoppable all season long. The sportsbooks have determined this game will be a shootout and which quarterback comes out on top may come down to what team has the ball last.
Super Bowl MVP Betting Strategies
There are a few different strategies to consider when picking the Super Bowl MVP. The first strategy is to pick the quarterback of the team you think will win. This is the simplest strategy but offers a low return. The second strategy is to hedge your bet. If you think that the New England Patriots are going to win the Super Bowl, then you bet on Falcons players. The third and most complex strategy is to wager on multiple players. With a $200 budget, a smart strategy would be to place $100 on Matt Ryan at +225, $50 on Julio Jones at +1000, $20 on Devonta Freeman at +1800, $20 on Taylor Gabriel at +6600 and $10 on Vic Beasley at +5000. If any of these players win the award, the bettor will see positive returns.
Super Bowl MVP Prediction For 2017
Matt Ryan (+225) at Over the last decade, quarterbacks have dominated the Super Bowl MVP award, winning seven of the last ten. Excluding quarterbacks, the other winners include two linebackers and a wide receiver.
Both linebackers who won Super Bowl MVP came from one of the best defenses in the last twenty years. While the Patriots have a strong and impressive defense, it is difficult to pinpoint a different maker – like last year’s MVP Von Miller – who could take over the game and win the award. The best defensive player in the Super Bowl may belong to the Atlanta Falcons.
Linebacker Vic Beasley led the NFL in sacks this season with 15.5. Although Beasley may be a premier pass rusher, it is difficult to see the Falcons winning the Super Bowl because of their defense. This leads us back to Matt Ryan. While both he and Tom Brady are the likeliest candidates for the awards, Ryan’s +225 odds are more attractive and allow for a hedge bet on Matt Ryan's favourite target - Julio Jones - at +1000.
