When the Kansas City Chiefs and San Fransisco 49ers kick off Super Bowl 54 this Sunday, Feb. 2, in Miami, all eyes will be on the future face of the National Football League (NFL).

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the heavy odds-on favorite to win the Most Valuable Player (MVP), according to Bovada Sportsbook.

The Super Bowl betting odds for the MVP prop bet lists Mahomes at +115 (a $100 bet would win $115), meaning the oddsmakers are giving the 2018 NFL regular season MVP an approximately 46.51% chance of winning the award.

Here’s a look at the top 10 odds to win the 2020 Super Bowl MVP:
