NFL MVP 2021 odds: Matt Stafford gets closer to Kyler Murray with Rams victory over Cardinals over MNF in Week 14


We had a big game on Monday Night Football with NFL MVP implications between Matt Stafford and Kyler Murray. The Los Angeles Rams were able to take the win thanks to Stafford’s big game. The Arizona Cardinals had a shot at clinching a playoff berth, but Murray returned the ball a few times and may have managed to get out of the MVP race. We look at their two odds on DraftKings Sportsbook after MNF.

Matthew Stafford MVP odds: +1,400

Stafford goes from +1600 to take the prize to +1400 after beating Murray, who entered the game at +750. The staff were masterful, finishing with 287 yards and 3 touchdowns in the 30-23 victory. He completed 13 of his 23 passes to WR Cooper Kupp, who had 123 yards and a touchdown. Stafford also found Odell Beckham Jr. and Van Jefferson for good scores. Don’t look now, but Stafford is making a case for MVP. He and Tom Brady will have an outdoor chance to break Peyton Manning’s record for passing yards in a single season.

While Stafford isn’t a bad bet in the long run, he has a lot of work to do to catch up with Brady and even Aaron Rodgers at this point in the season.

Kyler Murray MVP Rating: +1200

After falling to the Rams, Murray’s chances of winning the MVP went from +750 before the game to +1200. Murray had well over 400 yards of total attack, but also returned the ball twice and nearly lost a fumble. Both picks cost the Cardinals even though they were late in the game they just couldn’t convert. Between the games missed due to injury and this loss, Murray’s chances of catching Brady for the MVP title are very slim. It’s not worth taking a flyer after this game. Kiss this MVP goodbye.
