No surprise: QBs dominate NFL MVP odds

Quarterbacks dominate the preseason odds to win MVP for the 2016 season.

Quarterbacks take the top seven spots in the preseason odds to win MVP for the 2016 NFL season, according to gambling site Bovada.lv, and 15 of the top 20 spots.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is given the best odds to win the award at 4/1, but close behind him are Ben Roethlisberger (7/1), Cam Newton (15/2), Russell Wilson (8/1), Tom Brady (9/1, despite a four-game suspension to start the season), Andrew Luck (12/1) and Carson Palmer (12/1).

After that, non-quarterbacks finally made it into the odds, but next on the list wasn’t a running back or receiver. Defensive lineman J.J. Watt tied with QB Eli Manning at 25/1 odds to win the MVP.

QB Drew Brees and RB Adrian Peterson are 33/1 to win MVP, followed by QB Tony Romo and RB Todd Gurley at 40/1.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is the top rookie, given 100/1 odds.

Here is the full list of odds from Bovada:
