Super Bowl 50 Prop Bets Updates – January 20, 2016
As we approach the NFL’s conference championship games this coming Sunday, the race for the Super Bowl MVP trophy has boiled down once again to the ever-important quarterback position, with the frontrunners for the award all starting signal-callers from each of the four remaining playoff contenders.
With another New England playoff victory in hand, Tom Brady seized the top spot from Carolina’s Cam Newton as the leading favorite to win an NFL record-breaking fourth-career Super Bowl MVP award. Arizona’s Carson Palmer isn’t that far behind them in the standings, and so is the immortal Peyton Manning of Denver.
Meanwhile, several skill position players are also on the board, and with very attractive prices. Considering that only 27 of the league’s 50 previous MVP winners were actually quarterbacks, these players could very well net you a pretty sweet haul on February 8. Or, you could even take a good shot at an unlisted player below that could very well have an epic performance in Santa Clara just the same (Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald or Broncos linebacker Von Miller, anyone?)
And without further ado, here’s this week’s update on the leading candidates for the coveted Super Bowl 50 MVP Award.
