Super Bowl 50 MVP odds: Ted Ginn installed at 22/1, Kurt Coleman, Von Miller are more intriguing

New, comments

Super Bowl 50 is less than two weeks away, and it is safe to say I'll drop a wager or two on the game. I think the Panthers are probably going to win big, but maybe the Broncos defense can step up in a big way.

Along with the game, there will be plenty of prop bets to wager on. We'll have a rundown of the prop bets later this week, but in the meantime, the Super Bowl MVP prop bet has arrived. You can check out the full list of odds down below. Quarterbacks are on top, which is no surprise. 27 of the 49 Super Bowl MVPs have been quarterbacks, and seven of the last nine MVPs went to quarterbacks.

Former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver, returner Ted Ginn, Jr. is listed at 22/1. He is a boom or bust player, but it is an intriguing wager if the Panthers offense can get things going. The Broncos defense is tops in the league, so bust potential is there for most of the offensive Panthers. And Cam Newton is sufficiently high profile that even just a "decent" game from Newton could net him the award.

There are two intriguing names listed. The first is Von Miller. If the Broncos spring the upset, it will likely be primarily due to their defense. Miller is coming off a huge game against Arizona. If the Broncos win this game, it will likely feature a big game from Miller. At 22/1, I am tempted by a $10 bet.

I already put $10 on another player. I decided to go with Panthers safety Kurt Coleman at 150/1. He is coming off a huge game, with two interceptions of Carson Palmer. The long odds might be due to the idea that he won't do it two games in a row. However, Coleman finished this past regular season tied for 3rd with seven interceptions. Manning is interception-prone this year, and Coleman very well could collect one or two. Odds are obviously long, but I decided it was worth a $10 bet.
