Bears News: Latest 2023 MVP odds for Justin Fields


by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields has the 11th best odds at +1800 to win the 2023 NFL MVP Award.

BetMGM gives the latest update on Fields getting a lot of attention with betters this offseason.

Lastly, Bears QB Justin Fields is receiving a lot of buzz this offseason after his ridiculous 2022 season. The 24-year-old has the third-highest ticket percentage (9.3), which is higher than former MVPs Lamar Jackson (8.9) and Patrick Mahomes (8.7). However, Fields is only receiving 8.4 percent of the handle. The young dual-threat quarterback completed 60.4 percent of his passes for 2,242 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions in 2022. He also had an incredible year on the ground, totaling 1,143 yards and eight scores. It was one of the surprise stories of last season, leaving bettors to think Fields could take another leap this season.

Fields' MVP odds opened up at +3000 and have quickly moved to +1800 ahead of training camp. With such a big shift, bettors might feel pressured to place a wager on the young QB. However, the best move is to wait and see how training camp and preseason go for Fields. The Bears added D.J. Moore to their wide receiver unit, which should help Fields' passing numbers. That being said, the jury is still out on the young quarterback and if his performance last season was a flash in the pan. Fields is uber-talented and plays in a division that many believe is up for grabs, making him a trendy MVP pick.

This should be a fun season for Bears fans as Fields should take the next step in his maturation process as a future star with standout receiver DJ Moore running routes for him in 2023.
