Our buddies over at Bovada just hit us up with the official odds to win the 2015 MVP and quarterback Joe Flacco actually makes the list! Now before you say "well everyone has a shot", no, no they don't.

The list is kept to 33 players only and include some of the heavy hitters like Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Luck, J.J. Watt and Tom Brady. Out of the 33 available slots, Flacco is tied for 20th with a 40/1 chance of becoming your 2015 NFL MVP.

Aaron Rodgers                          5/1

Andrew Luck                             7/1

Adrian Peterson 12/1

J.J. Watt                                   12/1

Peyton Manning 16/1

Le'Veon Bell 20/1

Tom Brady                                20/1

Drew Brees 20/1

Jamaal Charles 20/1

Ben Roethlisberger 20/1

Russell Wilson 20/1

Odell Beckham                          25/1

Dez Bryant 25/1

Calvin Johnson 25/1

Eddie Lacy 25/1

Marshawn Lynch 25/1

DeMarco Murray 25/1

Tony Romo 25/1

Philip Rivers 33/1

Joe Flacco                                40/1

Matt Forte                                 40/1

Eli Manning 40/1

Matt Ryan                                 40/1

Matthew Stafford 40/1

Ryan Tannehill 40/1

Sam Bradford 50/1

Antonio Brown 50/1

Jay Cutler                                 50/1

Andy Dalton 50/1

Julio Jones 50/1

Colin Kaepernick 50/1

Cam Newton 50/1

Demaryius Thomas 50/1

In order to win the MVP award, the Ravens would have to achieve great things under Flacco. Aaron Rodgers won the award last season and found himself ranked as the second best player for 2015 in the NFL's Top 100 list to go with an All-Pro award and Pro Bowl nod. For Rodgers, he earned the MVP award after posting up an astounding 65.6 completion percentage, 4,381 yards, 38 touchdowns with only 5 interceptions.

If Flacco can do that, added with the ability of the rushing attack and tough defense, the Ravens will have a legit shot at going undefeated and should certainly be in the Super Bowl. Even with an MVP under his belt, the questions would likely still come for Flacco on his ability to be #Elite.
