NFL Betting Props – Super Bowl LIV MVP Odds

The Super Bowl is the biggest sporting spectacle on the planet. As a result it also takes in billions of dollars at the betting window. There are reasons for that. The game sits alone on the schedule and with weeks of buildup there is an assortment of proposition bets available from beginning to end. You can wager the over/under on the duration of the national anthem to what color liquid douses the winning coach. There are also the standard spread and total wagers. One popular prop is the game’s MVP, and considering quarterbacks have won the award 29 times in the previous 53 Super Bowls it’s not surprising to see Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo at the top of the odds board at BookMaker.eu with a significant drop after that.
