The Cincinnati Bengals‘ improbable run to Super Bowl LVI wouldn’t have been possible if Joe Burrow hadn’t turned the corner and played as well as he did when he was at LSU. Burrow won the Comeback Player of the Year award and was an offensive line away from winning a Super Bowl in just his second year in the league.

With all of that said, it’s not surprising to see Burrow with top-five odds to win NFL MVP in 2022.

BetSided has released their odds for NFL MVP in 2022 and Burrow has the fifth-best odds to come away with the award, at +1400. Ahead of him are Josh Allen (+600), Patrick Mahomes (+700), Aaron Rodgers (+800), and Justin Herbert (+1200). Nine of the top 10 on BetSided’s list are quarterbacks with Derrick Henry being the first non-quarterback to make the list at +2500 odds.

Joe Burrow with fifth-best MVP odds

This is a tremendous value for Burrow, who is coming off a season in which he threw for over 4,600 yards, 34 touchdowns, and 14 picks while leading his young team to their first playoff win and first Super Bowl appearance since 1989.

For those who aren’t familiar, the +1400 odds for Burrow mean that if one was to place $100 on Burrow to win MVP and he ended up being crowned NFL MVP, that person would win $1,400. That’s an incredible value when you look at the season the guy just had and the fact that this team has the money to build him a solid o-line and keep the rest of the team strong as well.

Honestly, all five of the guys who are sitting in those top five spots are a good value to bet on. Allen and Mahomes went head-to-head in arguably the best playoff game ever and their teams will be the favorites to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl this season. Rodgers won his second straight MVP and fourth overall this past season and Herbert is another young protege at the position.

I wouldn’t be shocked if any of these guys won it but if Bengals fans put down money on Burrow to win MVP, they could end up making quite the payday when the 2022 regular season concludes.
