If you want to place a bet on Josh Allen being named NFL MVP this season, do it now.

After an impressive performance in a 31-10 Week 1 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night at SoFi Stadium, the Buffalo Bills quarterback's odds jumped from +650 to +500 ($100 bet wins $500), per DraftKings Sportsbook.

  • Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills: +500
  • Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: +850
  • Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs: +900
  • Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers: +900
  • Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers: +1000
  • Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals: +1200
  • Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos: +1400
  • Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys: +1600
  • Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams: +2000
  • Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens: +2000

Allen completed 26 of 31 passes for 297 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed for 56 yards and one score.

Even before the season started, Allen was projected to be one of the league's top candidates for the MVP award. If he can continue to play at a high level, he could become the first Bills player since running back Thurman Thomas in 1991 to win the honor.

A quarterback has won the MVP in each of the last nine seasons.
