Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers opened as a 13-2 favorite to be named the NFL's Most Valuable Player in 2018 in Bovada's initial odds released Tuesday, narrowly ahead of Tom Brady.

The New England Patriots' signal-caller, who claimed his third MVP award in 2017, is second at 7-1. Rodgers has claimed the honor twice before, most recently in 2014.

Carson Wentz, who many expected to win the award last year before he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Week 14, has the third-best odds at 19-2. Drew Brees and Russell Wilson round out the top five at 15-1, with Jimmy Garoppolo among a group of four with the sixth-best odds at 20-1. Newly minted Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins is 22-1.
