Adrian Peterson tied for 3rd best odds to win 2015 NFL MVP


Betting on sports is something that has become very popular.  Whether it is pick ’em leagues, fantasy football, online betting or on-site gambling, people love putting money on sporting events in order to make them even more interesting.

On the popular betting website Bovada, when you’re gambling on the National Football League, you have many options.  You can choose to bet on which team will win the Super Bowl, the outcomes of particular games, and even who will win particular awards.  That includes the NFL’s Most Valuable Player.

Currently, the MVP betting lines are pretty interesting looking.  Here is how they currently stand as of this publishing:

As you can see, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers currently has the best odds to win the MVP award, followed by Indianapolis Colts quarterback, Andrew Luck.  However, tied for third best odds are Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt.

The site lists their top 34 candidates to win the prestigious award.  Along with Adrian Peterson are many of the league’s best players as well as some that would be rather surprising to see become NFL MVP.  But of all the NFL’s running backs, Adrian Peterson is listed has having the best odds.

If Adrian Peterson wins the 2015 Most Valuable Player, it will be his second time receiving the honor.  The first was back in 2012, when the dynamic runner nearly eclipsed the single-season NFL record for rushing yards when he totaled 2,097 yards on the ground.

Gambling types may want to head on over to the Bovada site and throw some money down on who they think will be the NFL’s MVP for the 2015 season.  Others will likely just watch the games and root on the Minnesota Vikings.  Either way, we all could be winners.
