Alex Smith has the same MVP odds as Odell Beckham, Rob Gronkowski and JJ Watt

New, comments

We have MVP odds and the Kansas City Chiefs have a player listed thanks to John Dorsey signing him. Oops. Never mind, this isn’t a John Dorsey post.

Alex Smith is the Chief listed among the MVP odds. There is no Jamaal Charles in KC anymore and he’s usually the one listed in these MVP odds. Alex is way down there at 66/1 odds but interestingly those are the same odds as Odell Beckham, Rob Gronkowski and Eric Fisher’s little brother, JJ Watt.

Alex should be on this list because he’s the quarterback of a team that will be a playoff contender but I can’t envision the season he has where he’s the MVP. He doesn’t put up the massive numbers that you would think you’d need for MVP. He is certainly valuable to the Chiefs (and that’s all I’ll say before igniting the Alex Smith Wars in the comments).

Listed third on this list is the Chiefs rival, Derek Carr. He just got paid in a big way so it will be interesting to see how he responds.
