Last year, Patrick Mahomes was the Super Bowl 54 MVP and he has a shot at winning the award for two straight years as his Kansas City Chiefs meet the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Super Bowl 55.
According to Bovada, Mahomes has the best odds of winning the MVP award again at -120. His counterpart on the Buccaneers, Tom Brady, has the second-best odds at +200.
If Brady is the MVP again, it would be the fifth time he’s won it.
Out of the last 10 Super Bowl MVPs, seven of them have been quarterbacks, so it makes sense that Mahomes and Brady have the best odds.

Patrick Mahomes -120
Having won Super Bowl MVP last year, Mahomes has already shown that he has what it takes to play on the biggest stage in football.
He also led the Chiefs to a Week 12 victory this season over the Buccaneers, where Mahomes threw for 462 yards and three touchdowns. If he can have a performance half as good as that, the MVP award is his to lose.
Tom Brady +200
At 43 years old, Brady has shown that he’s still capable of playing like his old self. He threw for over 4,600 yards and made 40 touchdown passes during the regular season.
The Buccaneers are the first Super Bowl team to play at home, so if Brady can lead his team to victory at this historic event, it’s hard not to like his odds of being MVP.
Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill +1000
Hill would become the eighth wide receiver to be Super Bowl MVP. He’s already torched the Buccaneers for 269 yards and three touchdowns in Week 12, so the big game potential is there.
Meanwhile, Kelce would be the first tight end to be MVP of the big game. He had 43 yards and a touchdown in Super Bowl 54, so you know he’ll want to have a bigger performance this year.
Leonard Fournette +2500
It may have been a slow start for Fournette’s stint as a Buccaneer, but he’s turned things up in the playoffs. Fournette has 313 total yards and three touchdowns in three games this postseason.
If he can keep up that trend in the Super Bowl, Fournette has the second-best odds on his team of being Super Bowl MVP.
Mike Evans +2800
With WR Antonio Brown likely missing the game, it’ll be up to Evans and Chris Godwin to carry the offensive load for Tampa Bay. Evans had 50 yards and two touchdowns when the teams met in Week 12, so another performance like that would be welcomed.
Chris Godwin, Tyrann Mathieu, Devin White +3000
Godwin had eight receptions for 97 yards against the Chiefs in Week 12. The Buccaneers will hope he can do that and more in Super Bowl 55, especially if he wants MVP honors.
If Mathieu won the MVP award, he would become the first cornerback to win the award since Larry Brown in 1996. If any cornerback can do it, it’s him.
This season, Mathieu had a career-high six interceptions and one touchdown. Fun fact: one of those interceptions came from Tom Brady himself.
White has the best odds of any linebacker to win Super Bowl MVP. Against the Chiefs in Week 12, White led the game with nine tackles and he would like to have a repeat performance. He also had nine sacks on the season, so expect him to try to get at Mahomes early and often.
