Since the 2023 NFL Draft is in the books and teams are running OTAs, it means one thing. Time to look forward to the upcoming football season. And one forecast we’re particularly interested in is the NFL MVP opportunity market.
Yes, we know — the engraving is relatively fresh on the MVP trophy that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes collected before leading his team to its second Super Bowl in four years. However, it’s never too early to predict how next year’s Most Valuable Player race will play out.
Prior to the draft, Bills quarterback Josh Allen was the favorite to win the coveted award. But his chances skyrocketed shortly thereafter, with Mahomes holding the top spot for a few weeks. Now, with just over two months left until the season begins, Allen’s chances of being named MVP next year are back at +700.
Allen and Showtime Mahomes are now co-favorites to win MVP, currently at +700.
Will Mr. Will the half-billionaire, who some say is underpaid, take it back next season and take top honors for a third time? Or will their conference rival Allen prevail? Or will Super Bowl rival Jalen Hurts take home the coveted trophy?
Let’s take a look at the prospects for the 2023 NFL MVP (Top 10 pick).

If you’re looking for help with which player to be the starting MVP futures bet, here are our Fox Sports NFL analyst picks Jeff Schwartz,
Joe Burrow (+700) — Cincinnati to Bengal
Burrow has everything you are looking for in an MVP favorite.
He is not only a terrific quarterback, but he competes with a flair and passion that deserves the attention of MVP voters. We saw this happen in 2021 when Burrow won Comeback Player of the Year instead of Dak Prescott.
The Bengals’ QB consistently posts an accuracy rating that is among the best in the league. And Cinci has improved at the offensive line position and has arguably the best wide receiving area in the NFL. Last year the Bengals tweaked their attack to plays and schedules that worked best for Burrows, so I expect their attack to be a little better this season.
The Bengals have a chance to become the top seed in the AFC, increasing Burrow’s chances of winning the award.
Pick: Joe Burrows (+700) wins NFL MVP
Move the Cardinals, Colts, Texans’ win totals up or down?

Jalen Hurts (+1200) – Philadelphia Eagles
Hurts was a frontrunner for the MVP award before suffering a shoulder injury last season. He excelled in 2022, throwing for 3,701 yards while rushing for 760 yards in only 15 starts. Hurts also totaled 37 touchdowns and was the center of a powerful Eagles offense.
Philly’s offense returned nearly everyone on its NFC Championship roster, including one of football’s best offensive lines. Even though the team has a new offensive coordinator after Shane Steichen left for Indianapolis, I expect the Eagles’ offense to continue.
Hurts’ ability to make plays and generate MVP-caliber highlights will grab the attention of voters. And the Eagles are on track to return to the Super Bowl in 2023, which should help their candidacy as well.
With odds of 12-1, this bet is definitely worth it.
