The world is Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ oyster. The 24-year-old signal caller just led his team to its first Super Bowl victory in over a half century.

In doing so, Mahomes became the youngest player in NFL history to earn both the regular season MVP and the Super Bowl MVP.

Mahomes is now an early favorite to come away with the trophy once again in 2020. He’s joined by Lamar Jackson and Russell Wilson in the top three, via Super Book USA.

Here are the overall odds.

  • Patrick Mahomes: 4-1
  • Lamar Jackson: 6-1
  • Russell Wilson: 10-1
  • Deshaun Watson: 12-1
  • Dak Prescott: 16-1
  • Carson Wentz: 16-1
  • Drew Brees: 20-1
  • Aaron Rodgers: 20-1
  • Christian McCaffrey: 30-1
  • Ezekiel Elliott: 30-1
  • Kyler Murray: 30-1
  • Matt Ryan: 30-1
  • Tom Brady: 30-1

Jackson earned the award in unanimous fashion this past season. Though, the performance we saw from Mahomes during the postseason makes him a solid bet to come away with the award in 2020.
