Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen surpasses Kyler Murray as betting favorite for NFL MVP

Published

on

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen enters November as the consensus favorite to win the NFL’s regular-season MVP at sportsbooks around the United States.

Allen moved ahead of three other quarterbacks — Arizona’s Kyler Murray, Dallas’ Dak Prescott and Tampa Bay’s Tom Brady — this week at Caesars Sportsbook and is now the MVP favorite with 7-2 odds.

Murray is 5-1, followed by Brady at 11-2 and Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford at 6-1. Prescott’s odds lengthened to +875, after missing Sunday night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings because of a calf injury.

The race to win the Associated Press MVP is wide open headed into the second half of the season. Allen is the third quarterback to be the favorite this season, following Murray and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes.

Allen hasn’t separated himself from the other contenders statistically and does not rank in the top five in most passing categories. But he’s the only one of the top contenders who led their team to a win in Week 8.

The Bills improved to 5-2 with Sunday’s victory over the Miami Dolphins and remained in first place in the AFC East. Buffalo currently is favored by Caesars Sportsbook to win the Super Bowl at +550.

Murray surpassed Mahomes as the favorite in early October, but saw his odds lengthen after throwing a crucial interception late in the Cardinals’ loss to the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. Mahomes’ odds have plummeted to 40-1.

Brady committed three turnovers in the Buccaneers’ loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Titans running back Derrick Henry, who entered last week at 20-1 to win MVP at Caesars Sportsbook, suffered a foot injury Sunday against Indianapolis and is out indefinitely.

Groin injury ends Randall Cobb’s most productive day since his return to Green Bay Packers

Published

on

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Randall Cobb‘s most productive day since his return to the Green Bay Packers this season ended at halftime of Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Cobb was ruled out at the start of the second half because of a groin injury.

He set a season high for receiving yards in the first half with 95 on four catches, including a 7-yard touchdown that was his fifth score of the season. Previously on that drive, Cobb had a 43-yard reception to move the Packers into the red zone. It was not immediately clear when Cobb suffered the injury. He muffed a punt in the second quarter but stayed in the game.

The Packers traded for Cobb this past summer at the request of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Cobb played for the Packers from 2011 to 2018. They let him go in free agency, and he spent one season each with the Cowboys and Texans.

The Packers finally had their full complement of receivers back with the return of Allen Lazard from a shoulder injury. It lasted for one half.

Cobb’s previous best game came in Week 4, when he caught six passes for 69 yards and two touchdowns.
