The odds of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes repeating as NFL MVP are …

Pretty good, according to oddsmaking source BetOnline.ag.

Make Mahomes the favorite at 6/1, followed by a trio at 9/1: Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers, Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts and Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles.

In fact, BetOnline.ag, has quarterbacks at the first 17 choices. No. 18 is New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara.

Makes sense. Quarterbacks have dominated the award in recent years. When Mahomes became the first Chiefs player named the Associated Press NFL MVP after his 50-touchdown, 5,097-passing yards season, he was the sixth straight and 11th in 12 quarterbacks to win the award.

Mahomes will bid to join Peyton Manning (five), Tom Brady (three), Johnny Unitas (three), Brett Farve (three), Rodgers (two), Joe Montana (two), Steve Young (two) and Kurt Warner (two) as quarterbacks with multiple AP MVP awards.

Also on the MVP odds table: Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill at 150/1.

Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray is the top choice for offensive rookie of the year at 8/5, with Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman the seventh choice at 18/1.

Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock from Lee’s Summit and Missouri is listed as a 28/1 choice.

Nick Bosa, the San Francisco 49ers defensive end, is the top choice for defensive rookie of the year, at 5/1, with Chiefs safety Juan Thornhill appearing at 28/1.
