RJ Bell: "Justin Herbert is a sneaky pick to win the NFL MVP, he's 10-1. It feels like Tom Brady and Justin Herbert are the two uncorrupted MVP candidates this year. There isn't a disqualifying element for them. I feel like Josh Allen isn't disqualified, but he's coming from a big deficit. Dak, Stafford, I don't know. Who else is viable? Lamar Jackson? Kyler Murray? Jonathan Taylor?"
AJ Hoffman: "When I looked at Herbert's stats today, I was wowed. I knew that he'd been good, but not this good. He's second in the league in QBR, third in PFF."

RJ Bell and AJ Hoffman react to the latest NFL MVP odds. The guys explain why Tom Brady is the current favorite, but disagree over the rationale that puts Josh Allen as the second favorite. RJ identifies Justin Herbert at 10-1 as a great value bet to win the NFL MVP, and concludes that Brady and Herbert are really the only two players who have a realistic path to winning the award.
