The Super Bowl Most Valuable Player award is the American equivalent of being named man of the match – but who is the favourite to claim the prize in 2023?

Super Bowl MVP is the biggest individual gong on offer in the big game and all-time greats including Tom Brady and Joe Montana have won the Pete Rozelle Trophy on numerous occasions.

Quarterbacks have a bit of a stranglehold on the award as 31 of the 57 Super Bowl MVPs played in the key position. The dominance has continued in recent years as four of the last six winners were QBs, with the other two being wide receivers.

If you’re considering having a punt on Paddy Power’s Super Bowl LVII MVP betting market then it’s also worth noting that the Pete Rozelle Trophy is almost always handed to a player from the winning team. The only time that didn’t happen was in 1971…

We’ve taken a close look at Paddy’s latest odds ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs v Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, February 12 to pick out the leading contenders to win the prize in 2023 – and the latest prices can be seen on our snazzy widgets!

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is bidding to be named the Super Bowl MVP for the second time in his career having landed the prize in 2020 when Kansas City beat the San Francisco 49ers.

Mahomes, 27, enjoyed one of his best regular seasons to date thanks to a career-high 5,250 passing yards with a 67.1 per cent completion rate. It will be his third Super Bowl appearance.

Unsurprisingly, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is rated by Paddy’s trusty traders as the principal competition for the MVP after leading Philadelphia to their first Super Bowl since 2018.

Hurts, 24, has already claimed a prestigious personal gang this season courtesy of the Bert Bell Award, which is dished out by the Maxwell Football Club to the player of the year in the NFL.

Chiefs star Travis Kelce is viewed as one of the best tight ends in history – that’s the name of his position, not an insult – and was named in the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team.

Still going strong at the age of 33, Kelce became the fastest tight end to reach 10,000 career receiving yards and also scored a career-high 12 touchdowns during the regular season.

Wide receiver AJ Brown has enjoyed his best year in the NFL to date since being traded to the Eagles ahead of the 2022 season.

Brown, 25, recorded a career-high 88 receptions for 1,496 yards to help Philadelphia head into the postseason as top seeds in the NFC.
