Most sportsbooks have installed Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen as the favorite to take home MVP honors during the 2022 NFL season. But the betting public is enamored with a different passer, as the Los Angeles Chargers’ Justin Herbert has been the heaviest bet so far.
BetRivers.com and FIFA World Cup PlaySugarHouse.com report that Herbert (+900) has taken on the most bets (19.9 percent handle, 12.6 percent tickets) and that he is backed almost twice as much as Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals (+1200), who ranks second (9.9 percent money, 6.7 percent tickets).
Allen (+700) is the third-most backed player for the award (8.7 percent money, 8.5 percent tickets).
DraftKings, who also listed Allen as the favorite at +700, has Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady listed with the second-best odds at +800 and FIFA World Cup Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes third at +900.
