Josh Allen favorite to pip Tom Brady to NFL MVP award ahead of new season

The final stages of the NFL countdown are on as the 2022 season moves within reach, and Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen is the league’s favorite to be named Most Valuable Player.

Allen, 26, has been consistently highly rated and has guided Buffalo to the play-offs in his last three seasons, passing for 73 combined touchdowns across the past two campaigns.

The 7/1 MVP frontrunner just about pips three-time winner Tom Brady to top spot, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers veteran running a price of 8/1 to take the gong come season’s end.

Kansas City Chiefs shot-caller Patrick Mahomes keeps the quarterback trend running as a 9/1 MVP shot, while Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay) and Justin Herbert (LA Chargers) are 10/1 apiece.

In fact, the top 17 players in the running for the MVP prize are all quarterbacks, which is understandable given the last nine winners of the award have been QBs. Running back Adrian Peterson was the last non-quarterback to lift the award in 2012.

Tennessee Titans rusher Derrick Henry is the lowest-priced non-QB to be named MVP coming into 2022, boasting a princely price of 50/1. The 2020 Offensive Player of the Year ran for 10 touchdowns during the 2021 regular season, having combined for 33 across the previous two years.
