According to John Ewing at Bet MGM, data shows Jalen Hurts is the most popular player in the NFL to win MVP:

It’s the same story over at FanDuel:

Hurts is going off at 10/1 at BetMGM and 12/1 at FanDuel right now. Last year, before he officially became QB1, he drew the most MVP tickets at Caesars. Hurts probably cashes that 40/1 ticket if he doesn’t miss two games.

This year is going to be tough. The schedule doesn’t do them any favors and history isn’t kind to teams that lost the Super Bowl the year prior. But if Jalen can put together a season like he did last year and win 12-14 games, I can’t see how he doesn’t win the MVP. The dude put on a show in the Super Bowl and I expect it to carry over into this season.

It’s also pretty good juice for the MVP runner up. The award has gone to a QB the last 10 years. Over those last 10 years, said QB’s team has been the #1 seed in their conference every year except two (Matt Ryan and Aaron Rodgers in 2014). I’ve got them 5-0 going into New York.

The Eagles unsurprisingly are heavy favorites to win the NFC East. I’m more leery to throw money on that than a Hurts MVP future. The NFC East hasn’t had a repeat champion since 2004. It’s the craziest trend in football:
