Something to chew on a while passing the time until the Sixers game. Jalen Hurts is heating up in the MVP futures market according to Max Meyer, an Editorial Content Writer at Caesars:
A couple NFL notes at @CaesarsSports…
1. Dan Campbell has nearly triple the tickets & double the money as anyone else to win Coach of Year. Odds shifted from 60/1 to 25/1 in past week.
2. Player that's drawn the most tickets & money to win MVP over the last month? Jalen Hurts

Right now Jalen is going off at 40/1 and has the 14th best odds to win the MVP. Admittedly I’m not the biggest Jalen Hurts guy even with the addition of A.J. Brown, but that’s some good juice. It’ll be interesting to see how the Birds match up against a 2nd place schedule and not having to play guys like Garrett Gilbert, Trevor Siemian, or Mike Glennon late in the season. If Jalen turns it around and starts firing bombs on target down the sideline I’ll be the first one to happily eat crow.
Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers, and Josh Allen are leading the way at 7/1. I like Justin Herbert at 14/1, especially if he can compete and potentially win the AFC West. The Chargers had a good off-season and the NFL media LOVES Justin Herbert almost as much as they do Brandon Staley.
