Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford has the sixth-best odds of winning the NFL Most Valuable Player Award next season, according to online bookmaker Bovada.lv.

Stafford, who passed for 4,650 yards on 371-of-634 passing with 29 touchdowns and 19 interceptions last season, is a 20-to-1 bet to win the MVP. That ties Stafford with Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and puts them ahead of seven players with 25-to-1 odds of winning, including Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

Denver quarterback Peyton Manning is the odds-on favorite to win MVP at 3-to-1, followed by Saints quarterback Drew Brees at 11-to-2.
