LSU fans have a lot to cheer for this weekend. Between Joe Burrow, Odell Beckham Jr., and Ja’Marr Chase, former Tigers’ stars are now some of the biggest names in the NFL. But which one can make us the most money as the potential Super Bowl MVP this weekend?
WynnBET currently has Burrow at +220 to win Super Bowl MVP while Beckham is at +2500 and Chase at +1600.
Best Super Bowl MVP Bet
As much as I would love to say that Chase and Beckham are great values at their high odds, this is Burrow’s world and we’re just living in it. He is trying to wrap up one of the best three-year stretches in football history, going from Heisman winner and national champion to 1st-overall draft pick to Super Bowl champion, and what better cherry on top than the Super Bowl MVP to boot?
We’ve heard plenty about how terrible the Bengals’ offensive line is all postseason, so the narrative is set up perfectly for Burrow to carry this “ragtag group of backups” to the promised land. If the Bengals win, people will want to give the MVP to Burrow to help fuel the narrative that he’s the next great quarterback and basically Football Jesus.
I don’t see any way the Bengals win this game without Burrow playing well. That would mean passes to Chase, for sure, but it’s more likely to mean excellent play from the anointed one.
Cincy is +170 at WynnBET to win the game, and Burrow is the only Bengal that realistically makes sense to win the MVP. So at +220, we’re getting great value on Joe Cool. If Cincy wins, Burrow wins.
If the Rams win, Beckham will have a difficult time overcoming teammates Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp for the award. Kupp is the likely NFL Offensive Player of the Year after an incredible season and he’s going to be heavily involved. While I think Beckham has a great game and is a great value at +600 to score the first Rams touchdown, it’s really difficult to imagine a world in which he wins Super Bowl MVP.
So that gives us Joe Burrow at +220. He’s the best shot at a former Tiger winning Super Bowl MVP and if you like the Bengals to win, he’s a tremendous value at +220.
