on Jan 26, 2017 11:23 AM EST
It should not be a surprise to know the fact that New England Patriots' quarter-back Tom Brady and Atlanta Falcons' quarter-back Matt Ryan are top and second favourites to win the Super Bowl MVP.
Brady has odds of 3-to-2 to succeed whereas Matt Ryan has second best odds of 5-to-2 to succeed. Receivers Julio Jones and Julio Edelman following are at 10-to-1 and 12-to-1 odds respectively to round up the top four favourites of the competition.
Brady missed the first four games for the Patriots due to suspension, but still managed to have a season as good as anybody and any quarterback would be proud of. He managed to compile over 3,500 yards and had 28 touchdowns against two interceptions only. Over 1,000 of those yards and three touchdowns went to his teammate Julian Edelman
Ryan, who is the NFL MVP second favourite, has had the best season of his career with the Falcons. He threw for almost 4,944 yards and 38 touchdowns, both being his career highs. He also threw just seven interceptions, a career low. He combining Julio Jones made arguably the best quarterback-receiver duo in the NFL this season, Jones apparently finished second in the NFL in receiving yards, despite missing two games this season.
There are many players in this game who could still step up and win the NFL MVP, RBs have won the award seven times, second most of any position. LeGarrette Blount, Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman are all running backs (RB) who can stir the audience with breath-taking performances. In receiver position, Chris Hogan is coming off the back of a huge game for the Patriots in the AFC Championship, with nine reception for 180 yards and two touchdowns.
