Patrick Mahomes is on the verge of winning his second NFL MVP award.
The 27-year-old was named the NFL’s MVP during the 2018 season by throwing 5,097 passing yards with 50 TDs and only 12 INTs. The following season, Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs to victory at Super Bowl LIV. The next two seasons were filled with disappointments, both for Mahomes and the Chiefs. Enter 2022.
Mahomes has delivered another 5,000-yard passing season and has the Chiefs on top of the team standings. At the top NFL sportsbooks, he has the best odds to win this year’s MVP award and if you look at the latest betting boards, it’s not even close.
The Chiefs QB leads the NFL in passing yards with 5,048 and passing yards per game at 315.5. Mahomes is also the NFL leader in passing touchdowns with 40 and QBR at 77.8. He also ranks second behind Tua Tagovailoa with a QB rating of 105.2 and is also only the third QB in NFL history to throw over 5K yards in a single season twice in his career. 메이저놀이터
Mahomes is also chasing some history during the final week of the 2022 NFL season. The Chiefs QB needs a combined 185 rush/pass yards to break Drew Brees’ single-season record of 5,562 total yards. Mahomes is also 429 yards away from Peyton Manning’s single-season passing mark of 4,777 and although he is likely not to shatter it, his 5,048 passing yards already rank as the 13th-best passing season ever, and he still has one game left to play.
Aside from individual success, Mahomes has also led the Chiefs to a 13-3 SU record, tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for the best mark in the league and one-half game better than the Buffalo Bills for the top spot in the AFC. After starting the season with a 4-2 SU mark, the Chiefs have won 9 out of their last 10 games played and are now the +385 favorites to win Super Bowl LVII.
