Bet NFL with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
For the first time since late September, Russell Wilson isn’t the sole betting favorite to win NFL MVP this season at William Hill.
Wilson overtook preseason favorite Patrick Mahomes on Sept. 22 (after Week 2), when the Seahawks quarterback had lower odds of +300 versus the Kansas City gunslinger’s +400 price. At one point, Wilson was priced as low as -175.
Now Wilson and Mahomes are tied atop the board at +200. Aaron Rodgers is next at +350, followed by Ben Roethlisberger at +450 and Tom Brady at +600. Young dual-threat QBs Kyler Murray and Josh Allen are at 10/1 and 15/1 respectively, and they round out the players who have odds lower than 50/1 at this point.
The biggest jump in odds over the past month-plus has been Roethlisberger, who was as high as 60/1 back on Oct. 11 before reaching his current price of +450.
Besides being a current co-favorite, Wilson also leads the way in total number of tickets since the season started at 11%. Murray is behind him at 9%, with Rodgers (8%) and Mahomes (7%) nearby as well.
Wilson has also gotten 26% of the total dollars wagered since opening kickoff, which ranks second to Brady’s 29%. Mahomes at 11% is the only other quarterback to reach the double-digit mark in that category.
There have been a couple notable MVP bets placed at William Hill as well.
One Nevada bettor placed $20,000 on Brady back when he was 10/1 for a total potential payout of $220,000. Meanwhile, other Nevada bettors laid $10,000 on Wilson at -125 for a total potential payout of $18,000 and $3,000 on Wilson at +550 for a total potential payout of $19,500.
