Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is the new favorite to be named the NFL's Most Valuable Player.

The latest odds at the Westgate Las Vegas have Wilson at 2/1, making him the favorite six weeks into the 2019 season.

For as good a career as Wilson has had, he's never received even a single vote for league MVP, which is chosen each year by a panel of 50 members of the media. This year he has a great chance.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the preseason favorite to repeat as MVP, now has the second-best odds, at 9/4. Next is Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson at 4/1.

Wilson, Mahomes and Watson are the clear favorites, and after them is Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey at 12/1.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady are both listed at 20/1, as is Vikings running back Dalvin Cook. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is at 25/1.
