With the second half of the 2019 NFL regular season now underway, there are several familiar names from past years currently in the field to win the 2019 NFL MVP, with one in particular that has picked up more stream than anyone else: Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, who is currently slated with a price of +350 at SportsBetting.ag.
As things heat up and become more apparent, sports bettors are flocking to online gambling sites to get in on the updated action, which now has MVP future odds for all the players associated with the race up to this point.
Yet it is Jackson, not just his team that is attracting interest on football betting sites, as the year-two quarterback has seen the biggest jump of anybody in this year’s MVP climb, surging from a mark of (+900) last week to now tied with Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson for the second-best odds to capture the award at (+350).
Initially viewed as an “experiment”, the dynamic year two talent is proving to be far more than that, as Jackson has taken the league by storm with his dual threat ability and explosive athleticism. The top ranked New England defense struggled with Jackson’s arms and legs last Sunday night, with Jackson amassing 163 passing yards, a touchdown, and a QBR of 89.0 to go along with two additional rushing touchdowns.
All of that culminating with a 37-20 victory against the AFC’s best team has many eyes now fixated upon the 6-2 Ravens as a legitimate threat in the conference the rest of the way.
Where Does Jackson Go From Here?
With a division rival spot next week versus the Bengals in Cincinnati, Jackson’s production should continue, as the Bengals currently have the league’s worst ranked defense, letting up 435.8 yards per game and 26.2 points per game.
Another successful outing should keep Jackson in the same ballpark for his future price moving forward, assuming the team takes care of business and picks up the win against the Bengals, who are currently posted as a (+10) dog on BetNow.eu
While the 22-year old, former Heisman Trophy winner has some stiff competition in the MVP field currently, his team’s overall success paired with his consistent performance on the field ensures that he will be in the discussion for the time being.
