For the first time this season, Lamar Jackson is the favorite to be named the NFL's Most Valuable Player.

He is 7-5 at Caesars Sportsbook in Las Vegas, after entering the season at 50-1 odds.

Mark Ingram II introduced Jackson before the quarterback spoke to the media following Sunday's win over the Houston Texans.

"Now I would just like to introduce y'all to the man, the myth, the legend, the MVP front-runner ... if anybody else got something different to say about that, then come see me," the running back said.

Since Oct. 20, Jackson been the most popular pick by bettors at Caesars Sportsbook. Over the last two weeks, 54% of the money bet on DraftKings' MVP odds has been on Jackson.

Russell Wilson is the second-favorite at 2-1 at Caesars Sportsbook, followed by Aaron Rodgers (9-1) and Patrick Mahomes (10-1).
