NFL MVP bettors look for next Lamar Jackson jackpot by Todd Dewey of Las Vegas Review-Journal

“Three bettors at the Westgate sportsbook turned $50 into $10,000 when the Ravens quarterback earned MVP honors and a bettor at Circa Sports cashed a large ticket on Jackson at 125-1 odds. ‘That was the result of basically one person having an opinion that turned out to be very sharp,’ Circa sportsbook manager Chris Bennett said. ‘That’s part of booking futures in general. You’re going to have things open up at 50-1 or higher that win from time to time.’ Circa has posted 2020 NFL MVP odds on 87 players, ranging from 5-1 on favorite Patrick Mahomes to 500-1 on eight wide receivers and Eagles tight end Zach Ertz.

Now it’s just gone nuts. Almost every bet we’ve taken the last several days on Tua has been against him. ‘There’s all this negativity and skepticism regarding Tua’s injuries and his ability to stay healthy as an NFL player.’
