Here are the top five candidates for the Super Bowl LVII MVP award including our predictions, picks, and odds.

Our Pick – Mahomes (+120)

NFL Super Bowl MVP Predictions

Super Bowl LVII MVP Predictions

1. Patrick Mahomes, QB, Kansas City Chiefs (+120)

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes recently suffered a high ankle sprain, so if he can suit up and lead his Chiefs to another Super Bowl victory (he already helped them win Super Bowl LIV) over this highly rated Eagles defense, this MVP Award should be his, especially given that four of his receivers are now injured and questionable to play.

2. Jalen Hurts, QB, Philadelphia Eagles (+125)

At the start of the season there were whispered doubts about the Eagles’ young QB Jalen Hurts, but after a season of wowing critics with his ability to escape the pocket and throw effectively on the run while helping his team win 14 regular season games and crush the Giants in the postseason, a Super Bowl win could earn him an MVP.

3.Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City Chiefs (+1200)

Last week, the Kansas City Chiefs didn’t think 4x First team All-Pro TE Travis Kelce would even suit up due to a seized back he suffered before the game, but his toughness cannot be denied as he helped lead his team back to the Super Bowl, and now with some Big Game big plays with his QB Mahomes, he could earn his first ever MVP Award.           

4. A.J. Brown, WR, Philadelphia Eagles (+1800)

After spending his first three NFL seasons with the Tennessee Titans, WR A.J. Brown came to play for the Eagles in 2022 and posted 88 receptions for almost 1,500 yards and 11 TDs, production that helped catapult his team to the Big Game, and now he is just a few thrilling TD catches and a Super Bowl victory away from earning the game’s MVP Award.

5. Miles Sanders, RB, Philadelphia Eagles (+2200) 

The Eagles’ fourth year RB Miles Sanders is a longshot to win the Super Bowl MVP but he is on the list because of his outstanding contributions in the regular season and in the playoffs, so far with 279 total touches for 1,347 yards from scrimmage and 11 TDs (all from rushing), a multi-tooled player who could be the key to an Eagles’ Super Bowl victory.
