The Chiefs enter their bye week with a 7-2 record following an impressive 21-14 win over the Miami Dolphins in Germany.

Patrick Mahomes and the offense have struggled relative to their standards, but oddsmakers are still giving Mahomes the respect he deserves nonetheless.

Let's look at Mahomes' MVP odds and stats to this point in the year below.

Patrick Mahomes NFL MVP Odds

BetMGM has Patrick Mahomes listed as the current betting favorite (+275) to win the NFL's MVP award for the third time in his illustrious career.

Jalen Hurts is second at +300, while Lamar Jackson (+400), Tua Tagovailoa (+600) and Joe Burrow (+900) round out the top five.

Mahomes opened the season at +700 to win the award, though he's steadily dropped in odds as the Chiefs surged to the top of the AFC.

There's a lot of season left, but Mahomes is in the driver's seat to become the seventh player in NFL history to claim three MVP trophies.

Patrick Mahomes NFL Stats This Season

Here are Patrick Mahomes' stats through nine games this year for the Chiefs:

  • 68.6% Completion Percentage (229/334)
  • 2,442 Passing Yards
  • 7.3 Passing Yards Per Attempt
  • 17 Passing TDs
  • 8 Interceptions
  • 42 Carries
  • 258 Rushing Yards
  • 6.1 Yards Per Carry

Mahomes has the highest completion percentage of his career and is on pace to shatter his previous best rushing totals.

He's on pace for the lowest passing yards and TDs of his career with the most interceptions he's thrown, though Mahomes is still third in the NFL in passing yards and fourth in passing TDs.

If you extrapolate Mahomes' per-game averages, he's on pace to finish the season with the following stats:

  • 68.6% Completion Percentage (433/631)
  • 4,613 Passing Yards
  • 7.3 Passing Yards Per Attempt
  • 32 Passing TDs
  • 15 Interceptions
  • 79 Carries
  • 487 Rushing Yards
  • 6.1 Yards Per Carry

That's still an excellent statistical season by any measure, but we'll see if Mahomes can improve that pace when the Chiefs return from their bye week in Week 10.

In the meantime, Mahomes still has as good of a chance as any NFL player to bring the MVP home.
