NFL 2021: Who Will Be The Best MVP?

If you’re a fan of American football and has been updated with the latest happenings in the industry, it is virtually impossible to miss that Tom Brady once again proved how legendary he is of a player by bringing home another Super Bowl with his team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With the hype of the closing of the most recent Super Bowl still hot, talks about the upcoming season are already starting, especially with the question of who would be the next MVP.

The talks are already hot, even though the new season does not start until September this year. You can now read things talking about NFL mock draft 2021, predictions for trades and retentions, and of course, odds and lines. There are the usual early odds for each team for future bettors, but how do the odds for the 2021 season MVP look like right now? Here is what you should know.

Do take note that, as always, these numbers and standing in the odds are current as of the time of writing and may change anytime.

Russell Wilson (+1300)

Remember the time when Russel was the surefire MVP for the season? The hype was strong around him, but it faded quickly. Wilson had good numbers early in the season, but he failed to show further impressive stats throughout.

Although there is the possibility of him playing his last game for the Seahawks, it is still a fact that Wilson is a powerhouse on his own and when paired with the right team, may prove to be one of the top contenders.

Matthew Stafford (+1500)

Although Stafford always had impressive numbers during his games, his win record is not that as impressive. However, it is expected that people would get to see what he has to offer this time.

The reason why he was pushed so high on the odds board was that this time was because he is set to play along with a more formidable team–Los Angeles Rams–with the likes of Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Tyler Higbee, and Josh Reynolds.

Tom Brady (+1600)

You may expect the current MVP on the top, but the current odds do not think so–for now, at least.

With the kind of player that Brady is, it won’t be a huge shock if he bags the MPV for the next seasons as well, bringing in another win for Tampa Bay. This would become even more possible if he and the team would be able to pick up on the high note that they left for the recent seasons and find the room for improvement that would make their overall game better.

Deshaun Watson (+1700)

Although he is still under contract to play for Houston, Watson had been very vocal about his dissatisfaction and the fact that he already wants out of the team. The team, in turn, has two options: to refuse to trade him for now or to sell him to other teams while he is still considered a hot property.

Although his odds of becoming MVP is quite promising, it still lies in a big line of uncertainty.

Lamar Jackson (+1700)

Lamar Jackson once made the headlines for winning the MVP by a landslide. However, the spotlight seemed to have a hard time finding him again, and he was not even as close to being in the list of most people for MVP last season.

Still, he is surely one of the best contenders for the title should he be able to bounce back for the upcoming season. This is also one of the reasons why he is currently the top favorite for future betting. If he managed to improve his numbers and helped the Ravens get more wins, he is no doubt on his way to becoming MVP again.

Aaron Rodgers Signs $150m Contract as Green Bay Packers Retain Star Quarterback

If you are a Green Bay Packers fan, then the news that Aaron Rodgers has pledged himself to the Lambeau Field franchise for another three years will be music to your ears. The veteran quarterback has completed back-to-back NFL MVP award-winning seasons, and many may have feared that another offseason filled with ‘will-he, won’t he’ rumors were on the cards, but that’s now been neatly avoided.

38-year-old Rodgers has put pen to paper on a deal that will net him a massive $150m and makes him the best-paid player in the league. His first year will amount to $41m, the second is worth $59, and his third will work out at $49m. That may seem like a hefty sum, but Rodgers reportedly actually turned down a higher amount, knowing that doing so would free up money to improve the deals of other players (and possible newcomers to the Packers ranks).

The retention of Rodgers will, of course, offer a massive boost to Matt LaFleur’s team’s push for a Super Bowl title, and if you take a look at any odds comparison site, you’ll see that Green Bay are now at around the (+1100) mark, meaning that only the Buffalo Bills, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are ahead of them in the betting.

Rodgers has been in superb form over the past few seasons, showing that age hasn’t caught up with him, and there is certainly plenty more left in the tank. Next season will be his 18th with the Packers, and he has led his team to the playoffs in each of the past three campaigns. 

During that period, the Packers have a 39-6 record in regular-season action, which is a frightening level of consistency, and keeping such a hugely talented player at the team is something that has been widely applauded.

Green Bay general manager Brian Gutekunst remarked;

“We are very pleased to be able to come to an agreement with Aaron that keeps him in Green Bay,”

“His play on the field and leadership in our locker room remain vital in our pursuit of another Super Bowl title. The agreement also allows us to maintain and enhance what we feel is already a very competitive roster.”

The new deal for Rodgers has left back-up QB Jordan Love considering his options, and one imagines he may look to leave Green Bay in order to find game time elsewhere. 

On that point, comments from LaFleur suggest that they may not stand in his way, should he indeed look to find a new team;

“Jordan’s come a long way,” 

“I still think, with any young player that hasn’t gotten maybe the experience up to this point, there’s still a lot of room for growth. So I think it’s going to be an important offseason, that when he does come back, it’s making sure that his footwork is sharp, that he’s on the details of what we’re trying to accomplish on each and every play and all the concepts, really a mastery of the offense, and just the command that he has. I know he takes that to heart, and he takes it very personally, and he’ll do whatever he can to be his best.”

One thing is for sure. Trying to force your way from behind the shadow of such an accomplished player, such as Aaron Rodgers, isn’t something that can be easily achieved. Hence the likely need to move on rather than sit on the sidelines for another three years.
