According to DraftKings, Jackson is now listed at -230 to win the NFL’s top individual prize just over one week after he first became the betting favorite. After a Week 11 victory over the Houston Texans, when he threw four touchdown passes, Jackson was listed at +170.
Jackson was listed at 10,000-to-1 odds for the MVP award when the Ravens reported to training camp this summer.
“I’m trying to win a Super Bowl and we’re trying to take it a game at a time,” Jackson told reporters Monday night when asked about the MVP award. “I’m not worried about MVP. If it comes it comes and I’ll be satisfied. But I’m trying to win a Super Bowl. That’s a team award. That’s what I want.”
