Some names like Jared Goff and De’Von Achane have shot up in their respective categories, while players like Bijan Robinson and Dak Prescott have slipped. So, let’s take a look at the current standings for the MVP, Offensive Rookie of the Year and Coach of the Year with my best bet for each market ahead of Week 7. Make sure you also keep an eye out for our NFL Week 7 picks with our experts currently boasting a 100-82-4 record on side and total predictions this season for +32.2 units of profit.

NFL Most Valuable Player

The race for the MVP award contains the usual suspects with a little movement in the odds after Week 6.


Tua Tagovailoa +350
Patrick Mahomes +450
Brock Purdy +700
Josh Allen +850
Jalen Hurts +850
Christian McCaffrey +1000
Jared Goff +1800
Trevor Lawrence +2000
Lamar Jackson +2000

NFL MVP Best Bet: Tua Tagovailoa (+350)

So far this season, I’ve sprinkled some money on Jalen Hurts at +850 and Brock Purdy at +2200 for the MVP. Following Week 6, I think Tua Tagovailoa has value at +350. The leader of the Miami offense has been excellent so far this season, and the key to his success has been staying healthy. Durability was Tagovailoa’s biggest knock heading into the season, and so far (knock on wood), he’s been able to stay on the field and lead the Dolphins to a lot of big wins. In Week 6, the Fins went down 14-0 to the winless Panthers, but it didn’t take long for Miami to wake up. The Dolphins ended up winning 42-21, and Tagovailoa threw 3 touchdown passes. He’s been a favorite for the award all season, so he’s worth a sprinkle heading into Week 7.

NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year

Heading into Week 1, Bijan Robinson was the clear favorite. But now, heading into Week 7, there’s a new favorite at the top of the list.


C.J. Stroud -150
Puka Nacua +450
Bijan Robinson +600
Jordan Addison +1400
Zay Flowers +1800
De’Von Achane +2000
Sam LaPorta +3000
Rashee Rice +4000
Tyjae Spears +4000

NFL OROY Best Bet: De’Von Achane (+2000)

After Week 2, I invested in Puka Nacua. The rookie receiver for the Rams became Matthew Stafford’s favorite target with Cooper Kupp out. However, Cupp is back, and Nacua has become the afterthought for Stafford. Instead, I’m turning to De’Von Achane at +2000 odds. Yes, before you say anything, I know he’s hurt and on IR. However, the Dolphins stated that the trip to the IR was more of a precaution than anything and that Achane will be 100% when he returns. The rookie back ran for 460 yards on just 38 carries in 4 games, so when he comes back, he should play a huge role in Miami’s offense. In my opinion, he’s worth the risk.

NFL Coach of the Year

When the team does well, the coach gets a lot of praise. Following Week 6, here are the contenders for the award.


Dan Campbell +200
Mike McDaniel +275
DeMeco Ryans +1000
Kyle Shanahan +1000
Robert Saleh +1500
Doug Pederson +2000
Shane Steichen +2200
Kevin Stefanski +2200

NFL COY Best Bet: DeMeco Ryans (+1000)

Dan Campbell has overtaken Mike McDaniel in the race for the Coach of the Year, and it makes sense since the Lions are one of 5 teams that are 5-1 this season. Only the Bills, Eagles, 49ers and Chiefs are also 5-1, which is great company to be a part of. Campbell is absolutely worth the bet at 2/1 odds, but for me, I’m turning my attention to DeMeco Ryans. The first-year coach of the Texans was given a very young and inexperienced team with a rookie quarterback, and so far, Houston is 3-3 with wins over the Saints, Steelers and Jaguars. Fortunately for the Texans, their next few weeks shouldn’t be too hard since they have the Panthers, Buccaneers, Bengals, Jaguars and Cardinals in their future. If the Texans continue to win, Ryans’ odds will continue to get shorter.
