NFL Week 8 futures betting odds include the Super Bowl, MVP, and other events.
Week 7 was a big one for award markets. All of the favorites for MVP, Offensive Player of the Year, and Coach of the Year were defeated.
Some of those markets reacted strongly to the results, while others did not.
Last week, five of the top seven favorites in this market fell, allowing Patrick Mahomes to go from +450 to +240.
He is currently the favorite in this market for any week of the season.
Mahomes also had his finest statistical game by far, completing 424 of 424 passes for 424 yards and four touchdowns.
According to ESPN Analytics, the Chiefs have a 55% probability of securing the No. 1 seed, which has been important for recent champions.
Aside from MVP, this was possibly the most intriguing market in the NFL last week.
Both favorites, Dan Campbell and Mike McDaniel, were defeated by double digits, yet their odds scarcely changed.
Despite losing as a heavy favorite in Minnesota, Kyle Shanahan, who was tied for third, stayed 10-1.
The Dolphins are projected to win 11.7 games, while the Lions are projected to win 10.8, but both teams won nine games last season, so a 2-3 win improvement may not be enough for either coach.
