The Cowboys quarterback moved into first place in the race for NFL MVP after his win against the Eagles
Another week, another favorite for the NFL Most Valuable Player award.
This Monday, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is in the lead for MVP, edging out Brock Purdy of the San Francisco 49ers, with odds of +160 on ESPN BET and +150 on Caliente.
This is the first time Dak Prescott has appeared at the top of a list dominated by quarterbacks since the preseason.
Patrick Mahomes led from the preseason to Week 2, and in Week 3, he shared the top with Tua Tagovailoa (the Miami Dolphins), who led in Week 4. In Week 5, it was the turn of Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills.
Mahomes and Tagovailoa took over the top spot from Weeks 6 through 11, with Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles and Purdy replacing them last week.
Both Purdy and Dak Prescott came out on top after beating the Eagles.
Dak Prescott has moved up the rankings since Week 10, placing 12th at 60-1 on ESPN BET. In Week 11, he climbed to No. 8 at 25-1, then reached sixth place at 15-1, before placing fourth at +800 and last week reaching second place at +325.
This season, Dak Prescott completed 312 of 450 passes for 3,505 yards with 28 touchdowns—the most in the NFL—and just six interceptions. He also had 44 carries for 185 yards and two scores.
With its 33-13 win over the Eagles on Sunday, Dallas leads the NFC East even though both are 10-3.
However, Philadelphia remains the favorite to win the division at -300 to +225 over the Cowboys on ESPN BET.
