Philadelphia Eagles’ QB Jalen Hurts Will Win The 2023 NFL MVP Award
It’s the 2nd day of August and it’s time to lock in your MVP bet! There is one player I’m betting to win the MVP award and if you clicked on this article you already know who that is going to be. Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts should have won the MVP Award last year. If his defense could have made one stop in the 2nd half he would’ve been a Super Bowl Champion and Super Bowl MVP too. Obviously, all of that didn’t pan out.
For the last few years, we’ve heard that Hurts is different in regard to his motivation. How different? This dude has a photo of himself walking off the field covered in Chiefs-colored confetti after the Super Bowl loss as his phone lock screen. It’s not enough for him to just remember they lost and want to get back and win. No, he has to be reminded of it every time he takes out his phone. Get a text message, motivated. Spam call? Motivated. Check the time, motivated! We’ve had and currently have highly motivated athletes in this city. Bryce Harper is the athlete closest to Hurts’ motivation, but it still feels like it pales in comparison.
We know motivation isn’t going to be the only thing that gets Jalen Hurts the NFL MVP Award. It helps, but there are other factors that will play into this win. The NFL MVP is a Quarterback award. Since 2000, only four MVP winners have not been a QB. All four were running backs, Adrian Peterson, LaDainian Tomlinson, Shaun Alexander, and Marshall Faulk. So Hurts is already on the right side of the ball in the right position. He’s also got a stacked group of offensive weapons at his disposal to help his cause. If the Eagles defense can keep the other team off the scoreboard as well as they did last year then Hurts is going to have the opportunity to put up points, stats, and wins to pad his MVP case.
Here are Hurts’ current odds to win the MVP at various sportsbooks:
Bet MGM: +1100
Points Bet: + 1000
So if you were going to bet $100 today at those odds you’ll win anywhere from $1,000-1,200 depending on which sportsbook is your favorite. If you’re unsure of Eagles QB Jalen Hurts having an MVP season look at this for motivation:
