Seahawks' Russell Wilson Overtakes Mahomes, Lamar as NFL MVP Betting Favorite

After two big weeks to start the 2020 season, Russell Wilson is now the favorite to win the NFL's MVP award.

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback is currently +320 ($100 bet wins $320) at William Hill sportsbooks, via David Purdum of ESPN. Patrick Mahomes entered the year as the favorite but now sits at +450, while Lamar Jackson is +500.

Wilson has never received an MVP vote in his nine-year career, but he was a top candidate last season after totaling 4,110 passing yards and 31 touchdowns with only five interceptions.
