No list of Super Bowl props is complete without a bet on who will be named Super Bowl MVP. The Pete Rozelle Trophy is the second-most important award that will be handed out on Super Bowl Sunday, aside from the Vince Lombardi Trophy of course.

The winner of the MVP is voted on by sportswriters and fans, so this Super Bowl prop is as much a popularity contest as it is a meritocracy. Tom Brady won the award in 2015, which was no surprise when comparing the number of winning Super Bowl quarterbacks to who wins the Super Bowl MVP award each year.

With so many touches on the ball and opportunities throughout the game it is proven that the quarterback position has provided 27 of the last 49 Super Bowl MVP winners. Compared to seven running backs, six receivers, nine defensive players from various positions, and one return specialist (Desmond Howard of the Green Bay Packers at Super Bowl XXXI) it is evident that quarterbacks have the edge for winning this award.

Also don’t forget that the NFL has become more of a passing league in recent years. The last running back to be named MVP was Terrell Davis of the Denver Broncos at Super Bowl XXXII. With this being said not every quarterback is popular; Ben Roethlisberger has two Super Bowl rings for the Pittsburgh Steelers and no MVP awards. Maybe one of these years, Ben.
