Team: Seattle Seahawks
2019 NFL MVP Odds After Week 12: +270
2019 NFL MVP Odds After Week 13: +340
Week 13 Stats: 21-31 / 240 Pass Yards / 2 TD / 1 INT / 13 Rush Yards
2019 Season Stats: 67.4% Completion / 3,177 Pass Yards / 26 TD / 4 INT / 284 Rush Yards / 3 Rush TD
With his longest NFL MVP odds of the year being all the way down at +2800, Russell Wilson has made a steady ascent ever since Week 5. In Week 9, Wilson had back risen to the top of NFL MVP odds board in a tie with Lamar Jackson at +300. After holding the best MVP odds a few weeks back, Wilson has slowly taken a larger and larger back seat to Jackson as the NFL’s #2 MVP odds holder.
No quarterback has slung more touchdown passes this season than Wilson’s 26, and he’s got the Seahawks at 10 wins and the NFC’s #1 seed through 13 weeks. Riding a five-game winning streak, the Hawks are hot and Wilson has made key plays when he’s needed to for his team.
The MVP discussion is looking to officially be a two-horse race, and with Seattle playing winning ball, Wilson will 100% be sticking around the MVP race. Despite Jackson’s steady separation at the top, there’s still four more weeks of ball left to be played. It’d be foolish to count out one of the game’s best closers as the 2019 NFL regular season winds down, so don’t count out Russ just yet.
