NFL MVP FUTURES Notes
In a strange trend, Indiana has seen the most handle on 49ers rookie QB Trey Lance, who is still mired in a competition with incumbent Jimmy Garoppolo.
New Jersey has seen the most handle on three-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald (), although Lawrence Taylor was the last defensive player to win MVP back in 1986. This is possibly skewed by a bet BetMGM has reported on Donald to win MVP that would pay out $100,000 at +20000 odds.
Finally, in a vote of low confidence in their hometown franchise, Michigan residents have placed the most tickets and handle on Matthew Stafford to win MVP (). A former No. 1 overall pick, Stafford was traded to the Rams for fellow former No. 1 pick Jared Goff (), and Michigan residents seem to believe that the talented veteran will thrive under coaching wunderkind Sean McVay.
