Josh Allen entered this season as the unquestioned favorite to win the 2022 MVP award, but after another disastrous, turnover-filled game Sunday against the Vikings, his hold on that perception is steadily decreasing.
The favorites to win MVP at Tipico Sportsbook are Patrick Mahomes at +130 and Jalen Hurts at +250. Allen is third at +500.
But you know who should also be ahead of Allen? The quarterback who just led his team to another victory Sunday to overtake Buffalo for first place in the AFC East: Tua Tagovailoa.
Despite an NFL-leading 82.6 QBR, the Miami Dolphins signal-caller has just the fourth-shortest odds at +650. But his stats are worthy of first-place consideration. After a third straight three-touchdown, zero-interception game to beat the Browns, his 9.1 yards per pass attempt lead the league, his 71 completion percentage is second only to Geno Smith, his 18 touchdowns are tied for third behind Mahomes and Allen, and his three interceptions are tied for second-fewest among starters.
More importantly, the Dolphins are undefeated in games Tagovailoa has started and finished, and he remains the hottest QB in the league right now. So, those numbers could continue sky-rocketing.
That leaves now as the time to get in on his MVP odds before it’s too late.
