Through the first two weeks of the NFL season, the MVP race is starting to take shape as Bills quarterback Josh Allen (+300) and Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (+450) lead the way for oddsmakers, however, a new name has entered the discussion.
Hurts and the Eagles moved to 2-0 on the season with their convincing win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night. Hurts completed 26-of-31 passes for 333 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, however, his highlight reel touchdown run was the key play in the Eagles’ 24-7 victory.

Of course, being an MVP candidate in week two means little to nothing as it is a long season, however, having only Allen and Mahomes to look up to is a promising start for the young signal-caller.

In addition to Hurts, Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (+1800) saw his odds improve after his six-touchdown performance in Miami’s 21-point, come-from-behind victory over Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. Tagovailoa tossed four of his six touchdowns in the fourth quarter as wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle were too much to handle for the Ravens.
Both Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady (+2200) and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (+1800), the top two MVP candidates a year ago, had their odds drop for a second consecutive week after being among the top favorites entering the season. Now, that’s not to say they won’t be right in the mix by the end of the season, however, early on, it appears to be a neck-and-neck race between Allen and Mahomes.
