Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers now has a 650 point lead on the second-ranked player in the NFL MVP odds and is poised to win his fourth Most Valuable Player Award during his hall-of-fame career.
Rodgers has been the league’s MVP three times in the past, and if he can win the honors for the 2021-22 season, he’ll become the player that has won it the second-most times in the history of the NFL.
That will place Aaron Rodgers one Most Valuable Player Award win behind Tom Brady, and 18+ NFL betting sites are still taking action on odds that are pretty close to even for a candidate that seems like a near-certain victor.

A wager of $1.50 will be required to win $1.00 on Rodgers in the above NFL bet type posted at Bovada, which is not bad for a candidate that is featured in the negative.
What would have to happen for Aaron Rodgers to be passed over for the NFL MVP Award?
For starters, the Packers would need to lose their remaining two games and relinquish the #1 seed in the NFC. The next two games on Green Bay’s schedule are NFC North Division rivals, the Minnesota Vikings, and the Detroit Lions.
The Vikings have been playing above-average football lately and are lingering around the final wild card spot at the moment. Minnesota needs a win against the Packers to remain alive for the NFL Playoffs, but the following game line favors Green Bay by nearly a touchdown this weekend.
Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers
- Point Spread: Vikings +6.5, Packers -6.5
- Moneyline Odds: Vikings +240, Packers -290
- Over-Under: 47.5
Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins is featured in the NFL MVP odds listed above with a +20000 moneyline that’ll net brave gamblers with $200 for each $1 wagered. While that is indeed a handsome payout, we don’t even recommend a $1 hedge on Cousins’ odds to win MVP.
The odds for the Vikings to beat the Packers offer a much higher probability of success, but still imply that Minnesota will fall short of victory.
A Green Bay win this weekend against the Vikings will likely deliver Rodgers his 4th NFL MVP Trophy, but the odds for him to do so will narrow considerably if and when that happens.
That’s why gamblers should bet on Rodgers MVP odds now before they drop too far into the negative. Even if the Packers somehow lose to the Lions, the decisions of Associated Press voters are unlikely to be affected, especially if Green Bay retains the #1 seed.
Super Bowl betting sites are also favoring the Packers to win the NFC and face off for the whole ball of wax against the Kansas City Chiefs on February 13th, but there’s plenty of NFL Playoff action to get through before that happens.
Chances are, the Packers and Aaron Rodgers will get a chance to test their might against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and prove who the true MVP really is during the 2021-22 NFL Playoffs.
