Super Bowl XLVIII MVP: The Odds-On Favorites

Last week, we posted the odds on just about everything relating to the NFL’s Conference Championship games, as well as early odds on who would get to the Super Bowl. Now we know which teams will be there in New York on February 2nd, and we know which players we’ll be watching giving their all to help their team bring home the Lombardi Trophy for the 2013-14 season.

But which of those players will be recognized as the most valuable throughout the game? Will it be Peyton Manning, with a winning performance that will close the chapter on one of the most amazing single seasons of any quarterback in NFL history?

Or will be Seattle CB Richard Sherman, the subject of so much media scrutiny once again after his post-game verbal onslaught denigrating the skills of 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree, whom he prevented from catching the touchdown that would have won the game for San Francisco?

Or will it be any of the other phenomenally-talented players on the rosters of both teams? Russell Wilson? Wes Welker? Marshawn Lynch? Demaryius Thomas?
