Super Bowl 51 MVP Prop Bet – Who They Thank First

There is a great Super Bowl 51 MVP prop bet -  in addition to who that Most Valuable Player might be – on who they thank first.

Typically before placing such a wager, it is best to try to guess who might be named the Super Bowl MVP and dig a bit into their personal life.

God is often among the favorites as are teammates, and this is the case for Super Bowl 51.  God would pay out just over $22 for every $10 bet while teammates would pay out $16.

In order for an MVP to thank God first, it goes without saying they would need to be religious.

Patriots starting quarterback and among the favorites to be named Super Bowl 51 MVP Tom Brady was brought up in a devout Irish-Catholic family.  Brady remains devout, at least on the surface, though his dad has publicly chastised him for being otherwise.

Brady is more inclined to thank family members, such as his wife Gisele Bundchen (paying $70 for every $10 bet), as he has done in the past.

Matt Ryan has the second shortest odds of being named Super Bowl 51 MVP.

Also a Catholic, Ryan still attends mass but is viewed as less devout than even a Tom Brady.
