The two men atop the 2020 NFL MVP odds list will be familiar faces to those who have followed the league closely the past couple of years.

Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson heavily favored to in 2020 NFL MVP

According to Caesars Sportsbook, Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson are the heavy favorites to win the 2020 NFL MVP award.

Rod Walker of NOLA.com provided the latest information:

  • Patrick Mahomes: 4-1
  • Lamar Jackson: 13-2
  • Dak Prescott: 9-1
  • Russell Wilson: 12-1
  • Tom Brady: 16-1
  • Kyler Murray: 16-1
  • Drew Brees: 20-1
  • Aaron Rodgers: 25-1

Jackson claimed the MVP award last season, winning in unanimous fashion for just the second time in NFL history. Mahomes, of course, won MVP in 2018, putting together one of the most legendary seasons in NFL history.

The biggest surprise on this list of favorites is Kyler Murray. He’s heading into his second year as a pro and was last year’s Offensive Rookie of the Year, though. So it isn’t exactly shocking that he’s being considered among these other superstars.
