Josh Allen’s MVP odds faded after the Bills were upset by the Indianapolis Colts 41-15 on Sunday.
Allen entered the weekend as the +350 favorite but saw his MVP odds drop to +1600 after the loss.
Likewise, the Bills have fallen from the top of the Super Bowl LVI oddsboards and are now either second on third, depending on which of the best NFL sportsbooks you use.
Josh Allen had dropped from the top of the MVP betting boards one week after he reclaimed the spot from Tom Brady.
Allen became the odds on favorite again after Tom Brady threw two interceptions in the first quarter of Tampa Bay’s Week 10 game against the Washington Football Team. The Bills QB solidified his status with a 366 passing yard effort against the Jets last week. But after throwing two interceptions for the second time in three weeks, the best NFL sportsbooks faded Allen’s MVP odds after Sunday’s loss.
It wasn’t all Allen’s fault though. The Bills defense, which allowed only two field goals to their opponents in their first nine games, gave up two rushing touchdowns to Jonathan Taylor in the first 13:22 of the game. Taylor would and another score in the second as the Colts raced to a 24-7 lead at the half. The defense allowed 17 more second-half points including two more TDs from Taylor and gave up a season-high 41 points on Sunday while scoring only 15.
Allen finished with 209 passing yards while completing 21 of 35 passes. He threw for two TDs but was also picked off twice. He was just 2-8 on throws 15 yards or longer and his two INTs happened during such throws. The Buffalo offense had the ball for only 22 minutes and 13 seconds as their defense failed to produce a takeaway.
What’s worse, the Bills don’t have much time to regroup as they will head to New Orleans to face the Saints on Thursday. Buffalo has opened as three-point spread betting favorites to win that game but the 5-5 SU and ATS Saints are 2-2 SU and ATS at home while the Saints are 3-0 SU and ATS in their last three head to head meetings against the Bills.
Following their loss, Allen went from the +350 MVP betting favorite to +1600 at online sportsbook PointsBet USA. He closed the day at +1000 at the said sportsbook but not after dropping to fifth in a tie with Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert. As of its latest MVP betting board, PointsBet has Tom Brady back as the +250 favorite with Dak Prescott chasing him at second spot with his +500 odds. Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers are next at +700 and +800, respectively.
Allen has also faded from a +250 at BetMGM prior to Sunday’s games to +450 early Monday morning. However, Allen is still second at that sportsbook with only Brady at +260 having shorter odds than him. After Allen, Prescott, Stafford, and Rodgers follow at +900 apiece. Allen is also listed at +450 via Caesars Sportsbook with Brady ahead of him at +260. Rodgers is at +750 while Prescott and Mahomes are at 800 and Stafford at +900.
With Allen’s drop also came Buffalo’s fall from the top of the Super Bowl oddsboards. After entering the weekend as the Super Bowl favorites, the Bills have now fallen from the top of the mountain. At BetMGM, they are now tied with the Rams and Cardinals at +800 with the Bucs and Chiefs back on top at +550 and +700, respectively. The Bills are 4th at Bet 365 USA with their +900 odds. They trail the Bucs at +600, Chiefs at +650, and Rams at +800. They are fourth at +800 via PointsBet behind the Bucs at +600, Chiefs at +650, and Rams at +750.
