There is a lot of excitement about the new Derek Carr-Josh McDaniels pairing with the Las Vegas Raiders.

There is a solid chance that Carr will take his game to the next level under the guidance of McDaniels, a noted quarterback mentor. With that in mind, those who are banking on Carr improving may take note of his odds to win the NFL MVP award for the 2022 season.

Carr is tied for the 16th-lowest odds at 50-1 with Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance, and 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel.

If betting is your thing, Carr is a solid longshot choice,
