The oddsmakers over in Las Vegas have released their odds for the NFL MVP award for this season. Philip Rivers is 50/1 odds to win the MVP award, courtesy of Bovada, (, Twitter: @BovadaLV). This just means that the season is getting closer.

Looking at some of the other players around the league that have the same odds or better odds to win the MVP award is comedy. Seeing Jay Cutler as one of the top 10 favorites to win the MVP just makes me want to cry and laugh at the same time. These are the people in Las Vegas that make these odds for a living! This is what they do and they believe that Jay Cutler has a decent shot at getting the MVP award!

Eli Manning even has the same odds as Philip to be the NFL MVP. Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Andrew Luck top the list for the MVP odds and those guys all make sense to be a the top of the list. Philip has 3 non-quarterbacks ahead of him in the odds and a grip of other quarterbacks in the league that have higher odds. Pretty amazing.

Will Philip Rivers win the MVP award? I like his chances over some other players in the league.
