The New England Patriots are odds-on favorites to reach Super Bowl LI, and now their quarterback is the front-runner to win MVP at the big game.
Our friends over at OddsShark have Tom Brady as the +225 favorite to be named Super Bowl LI MVP. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (+900), Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (+900), Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (+1100) and Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (+1200) rounded out the top five.
If Brady were to win MVP at Super Bowl LI, it would be the fourth time in his career that he’s earned the honor. He most recently won it for his performance against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, in which he completed 37 of 50 pass attempts for 328 yards with four touchdowns.
While Brady winning Super Bowl MVP certainly is within the realm of possibility, the Patriots first will have to take care of business against the Houston Texans in Saturday’s divisional-round game if they have any hopes of playing in Houston on Feb. 5.
