Here’s a quick look at some of the top choices. For a crash course on football gambling terminology and bet types, visit our NFL betting guide.

San Francisco 49ers

QBs are always MVP favorites (they’ve won seven MVP awards this decade alone) so it’s understandable most bettors won’t look past Jimmy Garoppolo for their MVP pick – even if he only threw 8 times for 77 yards in the NFC Championship.

RB Raheem Mostert, who dominated on the ground with 220 yards and 4 TDs in the NFC Championship, is another reasonable choice while TE George Kittle at rising fast too. If you prefer to lay your money down on the defensive side of the ball, Nick Bosa is your best bet.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs are in a similar situation. The offense is chock full of weapons, as the Titans painfully found out, so Patrick Mahomes is the natural choice to explode on offense in the Super Bowl. His primary targets – Travis Kelce, Damien Williams, Sammy Watkins and Tyreek Hill – also make good candidates. As for the defense, Frank Clark is the name to keep in mind.

Who was last year’s NFL Super Bowl MVP?

For the 2019 Super Bowl, the New England Patriots faced off with the Los Angeles Rams at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The Patriots were slight favorites at the kickoff for what was expected to be a compelling contest.

For the football purists, it was. This game was a low-scoring affair that was akin to a chess match, but fans who prefer a higher-scoring style of play found it to be rather boring.

In any event, New England won by a score of 13-3. The final score broke the record for the lowest final score in a Super Bowl, eclipsing the mark previously held by Super Bowl VII. In that game, the Miami Dolphins defeated the Washington Redskins by a score of 14-7. The game was played on Jan. 14, 1973, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. For the Dolphins, the victory capped off a perfect undefeated season. They remain the only NFL team ever to finish a year undefeated while also winning the Super Bowl.

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was awarded the NFL Super Bowl MVP Award after the game. Edelman had a stellar outing, catching 10 of 12 targets for 141 yards, with a number of his catches being of the impressive variety.

For Edelman, the honor was incredibly emotional. Beyond helping his team reach its ultimate goal, it was also a bit of a redemption game for him. He had missed the 2017 season entirely with a torn ACL suffered in the preseason.

He was all set to come back at the beginning of 2018, but he wound up being suspended for the first four games of the year due to a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Edelman appealed the suspension and lost.

He returned to have a solid regular season as one of Tom Brady’s preferred targets in the Patriots offense. The cherry on top of his comeback was the ultimate individual award, the NFL Super Bowl MVP, on the game’s biggest stage.

Recent NFL Super Bowl MVPs

The award going to Edelman marked the first time a wide receiver had received the MVP since 2009.

Santonio Holmes won it that year for the Pittsburgh Steelers, who defeated the Arizona Cardinals by a score of 27-23 in Super Bowl XLIII, which was played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.

Let’s take a look at those who have won the award since Holmes:

  • 2010 Drew Brees, (QB) New Orleans Saints: Held at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Garden, this game saw the Saints take down the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 31-17. Brees threw for 288 yards and two scores in the win. (Super Bowl XLIV)
  • 2011 Aaron Rodgers, (QB) Green Bay Packers: The Packers defeated the Steelers by a score of 31-25 in a game held at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX. Rodgers threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns to earn MVP honors. (Super Bowl XLV)
  • 2012 Eli Manning, (QB)  New York Giants: The Giants upset the Patriots by a score of 21-17. The game took place at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Manning threw for 296 yards and a touchdown in the victory. (Super Bowl XLVI)
  • 2013, Joe Flacco, (QB) Baltimore Ravens: Held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, the Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 34-31. Flacco was awarded MVP after throwing for 287 yards and three touchdowns. (Super Bowl XLVII)
  • 2014, Malcolm Smith (LB) Seattle Seahawks: The Seahawks dominated the Denver Broncos by a score of 43-8 at Met-Life Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Among the accomplishments of Smith was a 69-yard interception return for a touchdown. (Super Bowl XLVIII)
  • 2015, Tom Brady (QB) New England Patriots: The Seahawks made it to the big game once again, falling to the Patriots by a score of 28-24 at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ. Brady threw for 326 yards, four scores and two picks in the win. (Super Bowl XLVIV)
  • 2016, Von Miller (LB) Denver Broncos: In honor of the game’s historical significance, the roman numerals were dropped for the actual number to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl. Miller forced two fumbles and generated 2.5 sacks as the Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers 24-10 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA. (Super Bowl L)
  • 2017, Tom Brady (QB) New England Patriots: The Patriots took down the Atlanta Falcons in overtime by a score of 34-28 at NRG Stadium in Houston. Brady sparked a furious comeback, throwing for 466 yards, two touchdowns and a pick to earn MVP. (Super Bowl LI)
  • 2018, Nick Foles (QB) Philadelphia Eagles: The Patriots were back once again, but they fell to the Eagles 41-33 at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Foles threw for 373 yards, three scores and a pick, and also caught a touchdown in the victory. (Super Bowl LII)
  • 2019, Julian Edelman (WR) New England Patriots: Ten catches for 141 yards from Edelman helped the Patriots defeat the Rams by a score of 13-3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. (Super Bowl LIII)

History of the NFL Super Bowl MVP Award

The NFL Super Bowl MVP Award made its debut the same year as the big game itself.

It was Jan. 15, 1967, when the Green Bay Packers met the Kansas City Chiefs at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The game was billed as the “First World Championship Game,” as it pitted the NFL’s Packers versus the Chiefs of the AFL, a rival league which would eventually merge with the NFL.

The Packers were a dominant team of the era, and it showed on the field as they cruised to a 35-10 victory. Quarterback Bart Starr was named MVP for his efforts in leading the team to victory as he threw for 250 yards, two touchdowns and a pick on the day.

The following year, the Packers were in the big game once again, this time facing off with the Oakland Raiders at the Orange Bowl in Miami. This game was referred to as the Super Bowl. It also attached on the Roman numeral for two to signify its second year of existence. That naming combination remains in place to this day.

Green Bay won a second-consecutive title by a score of 33-14. Starr was once again named the MVP, throwing for 202 yards and a score in the win.

In Super Bowl III, a new team would claim the trophy. The upstart New York Jets, of the AFL, shocked the world and upset the favored Baltimore Colts by a score of 16-7.

Jets quarterback Joe Namath was awarded Super Bowl MVP honors with 206 passing yards. He gained a lot of notoriety in the runup to the game as he famously guaranteed a victory. Namath delivered on his promise in one of the biggest upsets of all time. The game itself is viewed as the final catalyst to spark the merger of the NFL with the rival AFL.

The Super Bowl has been played every year since those early days. In roman numeral terms, the latest edition was Super Bowl LIII.
