Justin Fields is receiving more than twice as many NFL MVP bets than Patrick Mahomes.
Fields’ 2023-2024 MVP odds at online sportsbooks shortened from +3000 to +1800 as a result.
The second-year quarterback’s MVP handle surpasses Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, and Justin Herbert’s combined handle.

The +1800 legal sports betting odds for Justin Fields to win MVP are more appealing than Patrick Mahomes’ short +600 odds, but the resumes are incomparable between the two quarterbacks. The higher handle-percentage could also be attributed to legal Missouri online sportsbooks being unable to make up from the loss of no land-based sports betting in the Show Me State.
2023-2024 NFL MVP Betting Odds
Patrick Mahomes +600
Joe Burrow +800
Josh Allen +800
Lamar Jackson +800
Justin Herbert +1000
Jalen Hurts +1200
Trevor Lawrence +1200
Tua Tagovailoa +1800
Aaron Rodgers +1800
Justin Fields +1800
In order for Justin Fields to win the MVP next season, the Chicago Bears must be a great team. Since 2013, the team of every NFL MVP winner finished first in their division.
The Chicago Bears made massive strides in the offseason, but they finished the 2022 NFL season with the worst record in the NFL at 3-14. Their current odds to win the NFC North are dead last with +375 odds.
NFC North Betting Odds
Detroit Lions +150
Minnesota Vikings +300
Green Bay Packers +330
Chicago Bears +375
There’s plenty of upside with Justin Fields dual-threat ability, but action from Illinois sports betting may be jumping the gun on the second-year star.
