Jalen Hurts & the Philadelphia Eagles may have been on a bye week, but the MVP race raged on as the rest of the league partook in the week 7 slate. Going into this week, Hurts was around +500 to win the MVP award following a big-time win over the Dallas Cowboys. But how would the market react when he wasn’t on the field and the rest of the candidates were?
Jalen Hurts is now second in the MVP race
NFL MVP Odds: Jalen Hurts to win MVP +450
Jalen Hurts didn’t play last week but his odds still came down. The Eagles are undefeated, beat the Cowboys in primetime, are healthy, and have a fairly easy run in from here.
Their next 4 opponents are the Steelers, Texans, Colts, and Commanders. Their combined record is 9-16-2. There is every chance that Jalen Hurts really entrenches himself in a flat-out duel with Josh Allen if he continues to progress at his current rate and can keep the engine going.
