NFL MVP odds 2015: Ravens’ Joe Flacco makes the list


Jan 10, 2015; Foxborough, MA, USA; Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (5) celebrates after the Ravens

With the 2015 NFL season getting ready to begin, there’s no better time to take a look at some of the more interesting odds and debating how they might pan out.  We’ve already discussed the Baltimore Ravens’ chances at landing in the Super Bowl, but what about their shot at employing the 2015 NFL MVP?

Turns out, there’s only one player on the Ravens’ roster who has a shot at winning the MVP award in the coming season, and that player is quarterback Joe Flacco.  According to oddsmaker Bovada, Flacco has a 40/1 shot at taking home the trophy.

That places him far behind this year’s current favorite, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has 5/1 odds of being named MVP.  Andrew Luck is right behind him at 7/1.  For obvious reasons, quarterbacks dominate the list.

Here’s the full list:

Aaron Rodgers 5/1
Andrew Luck 7/1
Adrian Peterson 12/1
J.J. Watt 12/1
Peyton Manning 16/1
Le’Veon Bell 20/1
Tom Brady 20/1
Drew Brees 20/1
Jamaal Charles 20/1
Ben Roethlisberger 20/1
Russell Wilson 20/1
Odell Beckham 25/1
Dez Bryant 25/1
Calvin Johnson 25/1
Eddie Lacy 25/1
Marshawn Lynch 25/1
DeMarco Murray 25/1
Tony Romo 25/1
Philip Rivers 33/1
Joe Flacco 40/1
Matt Forte 40/1
Eli Manning 40/1
Matt Ryan 40/1
Matthew Stafford 40/1
Ryan Tannehill 40/1
Sam Bradford 50/1
Antonio Brown 50/1
Jay Cutler 50/1
Andy Dalton 50/1
Julio Jones 50/1
Colin Kaepernick 50/1
Cam Newton 50/1
Demaryius Thomas 50/1

Do these seem right to you?  I find it interesting that Flacco shares the same odds with guys like Ryan Tannehill, and is only a notch above Jay Cutler and Andy Dalton.  Those are, uh, interesting decisions to say the least.  Feel free to sound off in the comments below.
