Who does the MVP mention first?
GLENDALE, AZ (The Spread) – The Super Bowl XLIX MVP will get a chance to thank those that have helped him achieve this honor on Sunday. Who will the winner mention first?
According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, when it comes to the odds of who the Super Bowl MVP will mention first, his teammates is favored with 3/2 odds. God is next shortest with 2/1 odds while the Fans/City are at 15/2 and Owner is at 12/1. Other options are Coach (15/1), Family (15/1) and Other (5/2). Super Bowl XLIX will be played on Sunday, Feb. 1 from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona at 6:30PM ET.
The interesting aspect about this bet is whether or not the winner is a real religious person. However, the tight-knit style of the Seahawks’ defense also could play a role. The Legion of Boom seems to play as a unit, so a Seattle defender winning the honor would point to the teammates being likely.
When it comes to the quarterbacks, Russell Wilson was quite emotional following the NFC Championship and thanked God upon the victory. If he is to win the MVP honor, odds will be strong for God in this prop bet. Tom Brady has always been quick to thank his teammates and offensive line when succeeding at things, so the teammates would be likely in that case.
