Super Bowl MVP betting Odds – Manning will win MVP
The Super Bowl MVP betting odds are always popular when it comes to the Super Bowl props. We all know that the Super Bowl line will receive the most action but with so many other props to take advantage of, it’s hard not to find an edge on the bookies somewhere else. The Super Bowl MVP will be one area where it should be clear.
Super Bowl MVP betting Odds: Manning Is The Best Choice
|Manning will win MVP if Colts win|
|Running backs are a poor choice on either side|
|Offensive showdown means quarterbacks, receivers will be highlighted|
If The Colts Win
If the Indianapolis Colts win, NFL betting cappers might have a tough time imagining anyone else besides Manning winning the award. He was the league MVP, he is the unquestioned leader of this team and he is the reason why they compete each week.
There is the chance that one of his receivers has a monster game, such as Pierre Garcon did in the AFC Championship Game, but the reality is that Manning spread the ball around and he rarely locks onto one target. He avoided Reggie Wayne in the AFC Championship because he had to worry about Darrelle Revis. The Saints don’t have any defensive back like that.
Super Bowl MVP betting Odds: Peyton Manning
If The Saints Win
If the New Orleans Saints win, once again, you’ll have to take a good look at the quarterback. There is the odd time that Reggie Bush goes off, or Robert Meachem has a huge game, but in general, the pattern is fairly the same in New Orleans: if the Saints win, Brees is the reason.
Sportsbook odds makers will have both quarterbacks with low odds for that reason, but they are legitimately good picks.
Super Bowl MVP betting Odds: Drew Brees
If It Is A Defensive Player
Betting a defensive players probably isn’t ideal in this type of a contest but if you’re going to pick one, consider what type of contest this will be.
Both teams pass the ball and both teams have subpar running games. That means if you’re picking a player, a defensive back is a good play.
Online betting cappers might be wise to take a look at Antonie Bethea and Darren Sharper, the two best playmakers in the secondary.
Considering the quarterbacks on both teams, though, a defensive back isn’t the advisable play.
Super Bowl MVP betting Odds: Antoine Bethea, Darren Sharper
Notable Injuries: Saints vs Colts Betting Odds
The most notable injury on either side is New Orleans tight end Jeremy Shockey (knee), who limped down the stretch and even though he came back for a good game against Arizona, he didn’t practice before the NFC championship game and had only one catch. The two weeks off before the game should help him, though.
Betting Edge: Colts
If It Is a Special Teams Player
The kickers on both side leave much to be desired and unless Matt Stover or Garret Hartley are kicking the game-winning field goal, it’s tough to see them winning the MVP award.
The Colts are not known for their return teams, so they don’t really have any special teams players worth betting, but the Saints do have an interesting weapon: Reggie Bush.
Sure, he isn’t the player we thought he would be but he can still be electrifying. We saw what he is capable of in the divisional round and if he gets his chances in a shootout, and he returns a punt for a touchdown, he is going to be up for consideration.
He’s the only special teams player worth considering.
