Minnesota Vikings fans love to remind us how good Kirk Cousins is. They are sure loving the fact the Green Bay Packers will soon be without Aaron Rodgers.

Vikings fans have watched the Packers go from Brett Favre to Aaron Rodgers. Since 1992, the Vikings have eight playoff wins and zero Super Bowl appearances. The Packers have 23 playoff wins, three Super Bowl appearances, and two championships in that time.

So it's understandable why Vikings fans don't particularly like the Packers. Green Bay has dominated for the past three decades.

With Aaron Rodgers finally leaving the NFC North, this is the Vikings' time to shine, right?

Just don't tell them the latest 2023 NFL MVP odds.

Above are the 20 players with the best odds to win the regular-season NFL MVP award in the 2023 season.

But, hang on, is that Jordan Love ahead of Kirk Cousins? The same Jordan Love with one career NFL start?

Love currently has the 15th-best odds to win next season's MVP award. Soon-to-be former Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has the seventh-best odds. He will be aiming to tie Peyton Manning's record of five career MVP wins.

While few will expect Love to actually win the award, there's reason to believe he can exceed expectations in his first season as a starter. He showed significant improvements last season, most notably by coming off the bench against the eventual NFC-champion Philadelphia Eagles, throwing for 113 yards and a touchdown.
