PERUSING THE PLAYERS

???? The Vikings are the only NFC North team whose most popular MVP bet isn’t a quarterback. Kirk Cousins (+4000) has lower MVP odds than Justin Jefferson (+8000), however the superstar ???? wideout is 15th in handle for the award (0.82%) compared to Cousins coming in at 22nd (0.53%). Jefferson was as high as +9000 for MVP in mid-July, and has come down slightly since to his current price.

???? Continuing with Jefferson, he opened as the +1000 favorite to repeat as Offensive Player of the Year ????. Former LSU teammate Ja’Marr Chase (+1000) has overtaken him at the top spot, while Jefferson now has his longest odds at +1200 after he was moved there yesterday. Minnesota’s fourth-year pass-catcher is seventh in tickets (5.0%) for OPOY, though he only ranks 16th in handle (1.5%).
