MVPs Bets For Super Bowl 53
Super Bowl LIII is less than a week away and everyone is slowly starting to get hyped. The story line of the GOAT vs the kid Part Two. Tom Brady did just enough to get by the young gun in Patrick Mahomes II and now he will have to do battle with another young talent in Jared Goff. It will be a Bay Area duel between Brady and Goff. Brady went to Serra high school and while Goff went to Marin Catholic. Also both these guys look up to Joe Montana and grew up diehard 49er fans. Montana was a Super Bowl king and Brady has taken over that title. Brady is definitely the favorite to win another Super Bowl MVP, but there is a fair amount of players in this game who might be the difference maker and earn this honor:
Tom Brady, QB, Patriots (+110, 1st Best Value)
This Sunday, Brady and the Patriots will be going for their sixth Super Bowl Title. Brady is Mr. MVP in footballs big stage, as he has won four Super Bowl MVP awards. His last two Bowl games were his best performances, where he completed an historic comeback against the Atlanta Falcons and threw for over 500 yards in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. This guy is playing better then he played ten years ago and is a competitive, work horse. The GOAT will be ready to deliver in the big game again.
C.J Anderson, RB,Rams (+5000, 3rd Best Value)
Now even though Anderson has only played a few games with the Rams, all those performances made a huge impact for LA. The Rams rushing game was already pretty epic and Anderson put them over the hump even more. In the playoff win against Dallas, he rushed for 123 yards, on 23 carries, and two rushing touchdowns. He was the lead rusher in the game against the Saints and he will probably lead in rushing against the Patriots. Championship caliber teams sometimes need a late pick up in the season to be the difference maker in the title game and Anderson might be that guy.
Julian Edelman, WR, Patriots (+2500, 5th Best Value)
Brady always has had some amazing weapons to throw to and Edelman has been the guy this season. He has come through for the Patriots in every other game this season and definitely played some of his best games in the playoffs. Against the Chargers, he went for 151 yards and nine catches. In the AFC Title game against the Chiefs, he went for 96 yards and seven catches. Both games he helped the Patriots in total yards and getting up the field in critical moments. He is very capable of making a great catch in crunch time.
Greg Zuerlein, K, Los Angeles Rams (+7800, 12th-Best Value)
When it comes to a potentially close Super Bowl matchup, the thought of a game winning field goal comes to mind. Zuerlein has a great chance of being that guy. He just kicked the game winning field goal against the Saints to get here and has shown the golden boot off. He went 4/4 in that NFC Title game with the longest being the winning kick at 57 yards. Greg the Leg has been clutch on the long range kicks and you need that confidence going into the championship game. Now the last time these two teams met in the Super Bowl, Adam Vinatieri kicked a game winning field goal for the Patriots victory. You know the Rams would love nothing more than to get revenge on the Pats with a game winning kick of their own.
