Last season Lamar Jackson took the league by storm in 2019 running away with league MVP, he started the season with odds at 100/1.  The last seven MVP awards have gone to Quarterback’s, the last none QB to win the award was Running back  Adrian Peterson in 2012.  A Wide Receiver or Tight End has never won the award.  The last defensive player to win was Lawrence Taylor in 1986.  In 1982 Washington Redskins placekicker Mark Moseley won the award during the strike-shortened season being the only special teams player to win the award in NFL history.

BEST BETS * Who can challenge Lamar Jackson & Patrick Mahomes *

Dak Prescott – Dallas Cowboys +1400

Looking around the league is there any team with more firepower on the offensive side of the ball then the Dallas Cowboys?  The Cowboys front office has done a great job of putting big-time talent around signal-caller Dak Prescott.  Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, Blake Jarwin & Rookie Wide Receiver out of Oklahoma CeeDee Lamb is one of the top pass-catching units in the league. Dak has leaned on Ezekiel Elliott and that star-studded offensive line the past few years, up until last season when he finished second in yards with 4,902 & fourth in touchdowns with thirty.  Dak feels disrespected over contact negotiations with Jerry Jones and the Cowboys front office, so expect him to come out fired up and ready to prove himself with a big season.

Tom Brady – Tampa Bay Buccaneers +2200

Tom Brady has had a chip on his shoulder since he came into the league in 2000.  The 2020 season will be nothing different.  2019 wasn’t easy for Brady as him and the New England Patriots were bounced in the wild card round against the Tennessee Titans.  Talks of Brady falling off a cliff have been in the news for years, talks of his arm strength declining floated around the league last season.  All of this has added another chip on to the shoulder of the greatest of all time.  Bruce Arian’s offense is predicated on the vertical passing game and pushing the ball down the seam and over the top.  Brady has an abundance of skill players, Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, O.J. Howard and his former tight end in New England Rob Gronkowski.  All this talent on offense and a mastermind of a coach in Bruce Arians.  Bet on TB12.  Always.

LONGSHOTS

Josh Allen – Buffalo Bills +5000

This is the time for the Bills to take the step into a true contender in the AFC, with TB12 out of the division now is the time to make the move.  In order to win its first division title since 1995 Quarterback, Josh Allen has to take the next steps in his progression.  General Manager Brandon Beane made a big offseason move by acquiring Stefon Diggs from the Minnesota Vikings giving Allen a true number receiver.  Allen finished with twenty-nine total touchdowns last season,  twenty threw the air, and nine on the ground.  Allen brings an added element with the ability to beat teams with his legs.  At a long shot at +5000, a  small wager is worth the risk.
