SEATTLE – Russell Wilson, NFL MVP.

Has a nice ring to it, right?

Oddsmakers have drastically Wilson’s odds of winning the MVP award over the past few weeks, and the Seattle Seahawks’ quarterback is now trailing only Tom Brady.

Bovada has Wilson at +350, meaning a bettor would win $350 on a $100 bet. Brady, the New England Patriots’ quarterback, is listed at +275.

Wilson’s odds improved dramatically over the last several weeks as he recovered from several injuries he suffered early in the season. He’s improved from +2,500 to +2,000 to +1,450 to +350 in the span of four games.
