Here’s Who Vegas Is Picking to Win the 2017 NFL MVP Award

Football is widely considered to be the ultimate team sport. Still, one of the fastest ways a player can earn legendary status in the NFL is by winning a league MVP award.

Most players would tell you that they would take winning a Lombardi Trophy and being rewarded with a Super Bowl ring over any type of individual award. At the same time, it’s only human nature to want to be recognized for individual accomplishments along the way. That’s where the MVP award comes into play.

With the NFL’s regular season rapidly approaching, here’s who the oddsmakers in Vegas are picking to win the 2017 NFL MVP award.

11. Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers

Odds: +2500 (25-1)

Newton proved to be one of the most dynamic players in the league when he took home the 2015 NFL MVP award. That said, Newton has had his fair share of struggles (starting with his performance in Super Bowl 50) since joining the prestigious list of NFL MVP winners.

At the end of the day, Newton needs more support from his teammates to have any chance at contending for the honor in 2017.
