Cardinals’ Kyler Murray inches atop NFL MVP odds favorites after Week 3
The NFL’s most valuable player race has only gotten busier through three weeks of the season.
But with the Arizona Cardinals posting three wins in three games behind an advancing Kyler Murray, it’s their quarterback who is making the move up as an odds favorite to win MVP.
There is little consistency between betting services regarding the race, but Murray as of Tuesday is atop the board at DraftKings with +700 odds of winning MVP.
He’s just ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes and the Los Angeles Rams’ Matthew Stafford, who are +800.
At FanDuel, four quarterbacks not named Murray are tied for first (+800): Mahomes, Stafford, plus the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and the Buffalo Bills’ Josh Allen.
Murray and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady are tied with +850 odds.
And at SportsBetting.ag, Murray is alone in second (+700) and behind the Dallas Cowboys’ Dak Prescott (+675).
Through Week 3, Murray has thrown for the third-most yards in the NFL (1,005) and is also third in completion percentage (76.5%).
The Cardinals signal caller is fifth in QBR (71.0) and sixth in passer rating (113.4).
There could be a shift atop the MVP race after Sunday. Murray’s Cardinals face Stafford’s Rams in a battle of undefeated NFC West teams.
