NFL Awards Betting – Predicting The 2010 NFL Offensive MVP
With the NFL season fast approaching, it always fun to take a look at the league’s premier players and discuss their chances at achieving the NFL’s greatest individual award: the league MVP. It is even better when you can get betting involved in the mix. While the main goal of everyone in the league is to win the Super Bowl, taking home the honors of being known as the best player in the world’s biggest sport is not too shabby of a prospect.
NFL Betting Prop: Offensive MVP
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning won the award last season. We’d be remiss not to start at the top with him. After winning the first 14 games of the season, and advancing to the Super Bowl only to fall short, I would imagine that the ever-competitive Manning will be highly motivated this season. He always has the stats to show for it.
Saints quarterback Drew Brees is the toast of the town in New Orleans. Only two seasons removed from throwing for over 5,000 yards and nearly breaking the single-season record, Brees is going to be out to prove that the Saints Super Bowl win was no fluke. Loaded with weapons around him once again, Brees has to be considered one of the favorites.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appears to be fully recovered from his knee injury and will look to return to his 2007 form in which he won the MVP award. Brady is feeling the sting from losing his first ever career postseason home game, and wants to silence the doubters that still exist in regards to if he can return to the level he was once at.
Tennessee Titan’s running back Chris Johnson’s contract issues are behind him for the moment. This makes him the odds-on favorite of all the running backs to take home the award. Rushing for over 2,000 yards last season, he has stated his goal is to go for 2,500 this season. If he achieves that benchmark, they may as well just hand the MVP award to him after he does so.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson does not want Johnson to overtake his spotlight any more. Once considered the NFL’s best back, he has taken a backseat to Johnson’s success. Peterson plays on a better team, and is said to have improved on his fumbling issues. We can expect Minnesota to be in the Super Bowl mix again, and if they are, Peterson is going to be a main reason why.
Online betting Pick: Chris Johnson. I think the top quarterbacks are going to cancel each other out, in essence. Johnson is the NFL’s best back and he is hungry to prove his worth. He has gone on the record stating he wants to break milestones never before seen. While he may not do that, he will take the offensive MVP.
