The odds are out for the most likely NFL MVP candidates in 2017, and it’s probably no surprise who’s on top of the list for former SEC players.
Dallas Cowboys and former Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott ranks in a tie for fourth in the odds at 12/1.

Those 12/1 odds come one year after Prescott led the Cowboys to the NFC East title as a rookie, joining Ohio State newcomer Ezekiel Elliott in a passing/rushing combination that took the league by storm.
Not surprisingly, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tops the list at 4/1, followed by Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (7/1) and Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, now the league’s highest-paid player, at 9/1.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, the only active player from the SEC to actually win a previous MVP award, comes in at 25/1.
Other former SEC players listed:
WR Julio Jones (Atlanta Falcons/Alabama), 50/1
QB Eli Manning (New York Giants/Ole Miss), 50/1
QB Matthew Stafford (Detroit Lions/Georgia), 50/1
WR Odell Beckham Jr. (New York Giants/LSU), 66/1
QB Ryan Tannehill (Miami Dolphins/Texas A&M), 66/1
LB Von Miller (Denver Broncos/Texas A&M), 100/1
