There’s two main observations here. First, you have to have Mahomes at the top of the list. You just have to. There’s no way you can put anybody above him.
The former Texas Tech star has set the NFL on fire ever since he became the starter for the Chiefs. He won the Super Bowl last season and already has one MVP award.
He’s the definition of a safe pick.
Not only is he number three, but he’s ahead of Russell Wilson! Yes, Dak Prescott has better MVP odds than Russell Wilson.
That’s not just crazy. It’s straight up insulting to Wilson.
Anything can happen in the NFL, but the idea that Prescott will have a better season than Wilson is simply laughable.
I’d bet my life savings that doesn’t happen.
