MVP and Rookie of the Year Odds: How do the Patriots Fare?

Will Tom Brady win back-to-back MVP awards for the first time in his career?

Earlier today, Bodog released their odds for the NFL Most Valuable Player, Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Years awards.  While no Patriots appeared in the "Defensive Rookie of the Year" category, the Patriots did have some turnout for the other two.

After winning the NFL MVP award in 2010, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is currently slated at 13/2 odds to win the award again.  He has the second highest odds, behind only Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers (line of 11/2).  Rounding out the top five include Michael Vick (17/2), Philip Rivers (9/1), and Drew Brees / Peyton Manning, who both hold 10/1 odds.

For the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award, the Patriots have two players represented, with running backs Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen holding equal 16-1 odds.  Julio Jones is the current favorite to win the award, with 5-1 odds.

For obvious reasons, quarterback Tom Brady should have a fair chance at winning back-to-back MVP awards.  He's still at the top of his game and has come to training camp with his usual passion and excitement.

Because Danny Woodhead and BenJarvus Green-Ellis entrenched at the top of the Patirots' depth chart, it's a little bit harder to see Stevan Ridley and/or Shane Vereen putting up huge numbers.  However, one injury could change that.  And for what it's worth, Ridley has looked really impressive this preseason and could see time with the starting offense come the regular season.

Of course, as Patriots fans have learned the hard way in recent years, winning awards doesn't mean anything without a Super Bowl title.  That being said, these types of things can be fun to predict.  Who do you think could bring home hardware for the Patriots this year?  Will Tom Brady get his back-to-back MVP's?  Does a player like Jerod Mayo have a chance at winning Defensive Player of the Year?
