NFL MVP Odds: How does Jalen Hurts rank going into 2023?
The Philadelphia Eagles fought valiantly against the Kansas City Chiefs but ultimately fell short of the mark in Super Bowl LVII. Jalen Hurts put in the performance of a lifetime and if you were to choose which player had the better game between him and Patrick Mahomes, the majority would back 24-year-old Jalen Hurts. It was Mahomes who won both league and Super Bowl MVP, but what do the odds project for 2023?

It’s worth noting that Jalen Hurts started last year at +2000 to win the MVP Award, but even this feels like it’s too high. He entered the offseason at +1350 and it’s already dropped to +1100 while the rest of the field has tightened. Hurts was one of only 3 players to receive an MVP vote this year (Mahomes and Allen being the others) and then balled out in the Super Bowl in a way that shattered records. He will be surrounded by the same offensive weapons as he was this year and there’s no reason his growth shouldn’t continue.
Patrick Mahomes takes the top spot here and that was always going to be the case. The big surprise recently has been the rise of Justin Herbert, who was close to +2000 not too long ago. He dealt with injuries in 2022 but will be playing in a new offense under Kellen Moore which may unlock some of that generational potential he’s flashed time and time again.
Jalen Hurts, I feel, should be priced at around +900. There is definitely some value to be had here in the early stages of the offseason and prices can move fast. Hurts went from +1000 to +650 in a seven-day span last year upon his return from a shoulder injury and it would be fair to say that the MVP race would’ve been tighter had he played an entire year.
