The NFL announced the five finalists for the 2022 Associated Press NFL MVP on Wednesday.
Comprised of four quarterbacks and one wide receiver, the winner will be announced Feb. 9 at the NFL Honors. A national panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the league completed the voting before the start of the playoffs.
The four quarterbacks are:
Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings is the finalist at wide receiver.
2022 NFL MVP PROBABILITY AT Bet FOX
Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs: -750 (bet $10 to win $11.33 total)
Joe Burrow, Bengals: +750 (bet $10 to win $85 total)
Josh Allen, Bills: +1000 (bet $10 to win $110 total)
Jalen Hurts, Eagles: +1200 (bet $10 to win $130 total)
Justin Jefferson, Vikings: +10,000 (bet $10 to win $1,010 total)
Why the Bengals-Chiefs line has changed
Shannon Sharpe explains why the line moved dramatically.
At -750, Mahomes is the runaway favorite. He led the NFL with 5,250 yards and 41 touchdown passes. He was a near-unanimous choice for first-team All-Pro QB. More than likely, the one-time winner will take home another MVP trophy this season. Will he have another Lombardi Trophy to go with it?
Hurts (+1200) was a strong contender for most of the season, but once he missed a few games with a shoulder injury, his bid was effectively over. Hurts threw for 3,701 yards and ran for 760 with 35 combined touchdowns.
Burrow (+750), is the second best favorite and a scorching end to the season greatly reduced his odds. Joe Cool threw for 4,475 yards and 29 touchdowns and was second in the NFL in completion percentage (68.3%).
Allen (+1000) was tied with Dak Prescott for most interceptions thrown, but sits with the third-best MVP odds. He threw for 4,283 yards and 35 TDs and rushed for 762 yards, third among quarterbacks.
Jefferson (+10000) led the NFL with 128 catches and 1,809 receiving yards and was a unanimous All-Pro selection. It’s even a longer shot than the odds indicate, as a wide receiver has never won the award. Could this be the year that changes?
Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers won the award in 2020-21 and has won it four times overall.
