Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner.
Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts headline a historic Super Bowl matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. Both quarterbacks will be the favorites to be crowned Super Bowl MVP if their teams prevail on Sunday.
While QBs have historically dominated the award, two of the past four winners have been wide receivers (Cooper Kupp & Julian Edelman).
Who Decides On Super Bowl MVP?
The Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the Super Bowl is selected through a voting process that involves 16 NFL journalists and a fan vote. The journalists, who are made up of writers and broadcasters, account for 80% of the voting while the fan vote contributes the remaining 20%. The MVP is awarded to the player who had the biggest impact on their team’s success during the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl is the most prestigious sporting event of the year and the players who perform best on this global stage will receive recognition in the form of the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award. Betting on the MVP is a widely popular activity in the Super Bowl prop market, and it becomes available as soon as the NFL Playoffs start.
In the NFL, quarterbacks play a crucial role, so it’s not surprising that the two quarterbacks from the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles are favorites for the MVP award.
With the Super Bowl 57 matchup now set, we are only a week away from the big game.
