The Super Bowl prop betting market is as popular as ever as oddsmakers put out odds for just about everything. Still, one of the most popular props every year is which player will finish as the game’s Most Valuable Player. You can find the latest odds on the DraftKings Sportsbook, and here’s a look at where bettors are going with their MVP bets.

Patrick Mahomes is the betting favorite at -106 odds, and that’s where a ton of the bets are going. Of all the bets placed on MVP odds, 35% of the wagers are on Mahomes including 48% of the handle. The MVP typically goes to the quarterback, so it’s not surprise Tom Brady has the second highest odds at +190 and is second with 29% of the bets and 29% of the handle.

Outside of the quarterback position, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill has the third highest odds at +1200 and is getting 8% of the bets and 6% of the handle. Tight end Travis Kelce is getting +1300 odds with 7% of bets and 5% of the handle.

If you’re looking for longshot options, the rest of the top 10 are getting roughly 1% of the handle with Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette the highest among the group at +2500 odds. He has been playing much better in the playoffs than he has in the regular season, so he could have some value.

Defensive MVPs are incredibly difficult to predict, but Kansas City safety Tyrann Mathieu could make some sense at +4000 odds. Brady is coming off a three-interception performance in the NFC Championship and has had five multi-interception games this season. Mathieu had an interception in the divisional round of the playoffs and leads the team with seven total interceptions on the year. It would likely take a couple turnovers and maybe even a touchdown, but +4000 isn’t the worst odds for a guy who has a nose for the football.

Below is a look at the top 10 odds for Super Bowl MVP, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

  • Patrick Mahomes -106
  • Tom Brady +190
  • Tyreek Hill +1200
  • Travis Kelce +1300
  • Leonard Fournette +2500
  • Clyde Edwards-Helaire +2800
  • Mike Evans/Chris Godwin +3000
  • Devin White/Tyrann Mathieu/Darrel Williams +4000
