Mahomes Headlines Competitive MVP Race to Start Season

The Chiefs offense wasn't as dominant in the regular season, keeping Mahomes out of the MVP conversation down the stretch, but he enters 2024 as the favorite amongst a strong group of quarterbacks.

Josh Allen is regularly in the mix for the award, and he has a chance to capture the eyes of voters with a less proven group of skill position players around him after the team sent Stefon Diggs to the Houston Texans. He enters the season second in MVP odds.

Speaking of Diggs, he is in Houston with the third choice for the award, second-year pro-C.J. Stroud, who will look to jump from Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2023 to MVP in 2024.

Meanwhile, last year's winner Lamar Jackson is given a fair shot to win the award for a third time and in the second straight season, sitting at +1400. However, he is behind Joe Burrow of the Bengals, who is expected to make a big return from season-ending elbow surgery, tied with Stroud on the oddsboard at +1000.
