2020-2021 NFL Season Update

While there have been some early season surprises in the NFL, the elite clubs in the league have started the way pundits expected them to. Each of the top-three teams on the NFL Vegas odds board have started the year with 2-0 records and look every bit the contenders that Super Bowl odds makers pegged them to be before the season began.

Similarly, the early MVP favourites have kicked off the season with a bang. We’ll break down the top-five clubs on the NFL betting lines and discuss who is likely to be crowned NFL MVP in 2020.


NFL Odds to Win the Super Bowl


Baltimore Ravens +450

It hasn’t been the video game-like offense that we all expected from the Ravens to start 2020. But Baltimore’s defense looks vastly improved from last year, surrendering an average of just 11 points per game. If they can keep it up, it’ll be tough to match Baltimore on either side of the ball.


Kansas City Chiefs +450

Despite a lot of change this offseason, the defending champs will need their defense to turn things around as the season progresses if they hope to remain leaders on the NFL lines. While Patrick Mahomes will score plenty of points and make the Chiefs a dangerous club, giving up 150 yards per game on the ground won’t be sustainable over the course of the season for KC.


Seattle Seahawks +850

The Seahawks look like they mean business this year. WR DK Metcalf has continued in an upward trend following an impressive rookie campaign last season. The combination of Metcalf and Tyler Lockett is hard for any team to defend against, and makes QB Russell Wilson that much more dangerous.


New Orleans Saints +1100

The Saints have struggled out of the gate and have watched their NFL odds slip in the process. All eyes are on 41-year-old Drew Brees, who looks like age may finally be catching up with him.


San Francisco 49ers +1600

San Francisco hasn’t gotten off to the start that they were hoping for either, dropping their Week 1 contest to the Arizona Cardinals. QB Jimmy Garoppolo is dealing with an early-season ankle injury, so that won’t make things easier for the ‘Niners.


NFL Odds to Win MVP


Patrick Mahomes +400

It’s Patrick Mahomes’ league and everyone else is just playing along. We’ll see if the 2020 Super Bowl MVP can snag his second regular-season MVP award in three years.


QB Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks (+240)

Wilson has never won MVP honours before, but if he can stay healthy and benefit from the rise of DK Metcalf, it looks like No. 3 may finally be rewarded with the accolades he deserves.


QB Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs (+500)

Patrick Mahomes is as complete of a QB as you can get in the NFL. He has the arm and the legs needed to be unstoppable. A healthy Mahomes is a sure-fire MVP favourite..


QB Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens (+500)

The defending MVP winner continues to give opposing defenses nightmares with his run threat and deep passing abilities. He’s a lock to lead all QBs in rushing TDs, but has shown that he’s an elite passer as well.


QB Aaron Rogers, Green Bay Packers (+700)

The grizzled veteran has a chip on his shoulder this season after the Packers’ drafted QB Jordan Love this offseason and has shown he’s still the man in Green Bay with a league-leading 91.0 QBR.


QB Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals (+1200)

Last year’s rookie of the year is looking to insert himself in the conversation for the best QB in the NFL. Dragging the lowly Cards out of the basement of the league would go a long way.
