Today, our NFL expert handicappers take a stab at the Super Bowl 46 MVP odds and try to pick out a few surprises that you might not think of as potential candidates to win the MVP honors. All Super Bowl odds are available at Sportbet Sportsbook! Check out the best Super Bowl picks you’ll find on the internet!
Tom Brady, New England Patriots (+115): We’ll start with the obvious choice. Brady has been here and done that a number of times before, and even if someone like a TE Rob Gronkowski or TE Aaron Hernandez ends up having a big game as well, the nod is probably going to go to the experienced GQ cover boy. We know that Brady is going to have to throw the ball 40 times in this game, and we know that he is going to be going up against a team that has had a much maligned secondary all season long, so we completely understand why the future Hall of Famer is considered almost the odds on Super Bowl MVP odds favorite.
Eli Manning, New York Giants (+175): Again, duh. How appropriate would this story be? Baby Manning goes into the house of big brother Manning, wins his second Super Bowl, one more than big brother, and becomes the MVP of the game. It would be 100% perfection. Manning has been known for his fourth quarter comebacks ever since he was able to shock the Patriots four years ago to win the Super Bowl, and we tend to believe that Eli will at least have the opportunity to do this once again. The first time these two teams met, it was Manning that got the job done in the clutch, and when he really had a chance to have his name called, he stepped up to the plate on the road and knocked off New England. He can do it again, but his Super Bowl MVP odds are awfully short.
Brandon Jacobs, New York Giants (+6600): Jacobs might not even be the better choice of the two New York backs, as he tends to have some problems in short yardage situations even though he is certainly a bigger back than RB Ahmad Bradshaw. Still, Jacobs had 18 carries for 72 yards and a TD when these two teams met the first time around, and historically, New England has struggled against the bigger, stronger running games that tend to hit it right in the heart of the defense. Bradshaw can do it as well, but we aren’t so fond of the 33 to 1 that Bradshaw is to win the MVP award. This 66 to 1 number on Jacobs though, is a totally different story.
Danny Woodhead, New England Patriots (+8000): Just because we never really, truly know what the mastermind, Head Coach Bill Belichick is thinking… These running backs are all not very talented that the Patriots have, but for whatever reason, Belichick tends to put them in situations where they can succeed against certain teams. Woodhead is a longshot to say the least, as he might not ever get a single carry in the game… Or, he could have 25 carries and lead the team to victory… Just on the off chance that Woodhead does find himself busy near the goal line on Sunday though, we think we would be remiss if we didn’t mention him as a possibility to win the Super Bowl MVP award.
Osi Umenyiora, New York Giants (+12500): Umenyiora didn’t play in a ton of games this year, but there were few times that he stepped on the field that he didn’t make an impact. Over the course of the last four weeks, the veteran end has had 5.5 sacks and forced a fumble. Though many just assume that the team’s sack leader, DE Jason Pierre-Paul is the better choice to make if you had to go with a defensive player for the Giants, we’re not all that sure that that is a good assessment. Including the playoffs, Umenyiora has 12.5 sacks and three forced fumbles this year… and he only played in a grand total of 10 games! This is clearly the better option, again, especially since we are talking about a veteran that has already helped one team win a Super Bowl ring.
