Uh oh. Can Jalen Hurts pass now, too?

After last week's Eagles home win over the Vikings, I noted that quarterback Jalen Hurts had jumped to third in NFL MVP odds at +800 on DraftKings Sportsbook behind just Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes. Hurts turned in the best game of his young career in the game against Minnesota and he didn't stop airing out on Sunday in a road win down in Maryland against the Commanders. The odds have jumped once again because of Hurts' play.

Hurts is now second at +700 behind Allen. This is where the odds currently sit as of Monday morning on DraftKings Sportsbook:


 PlayerTeam Odds 
 Josh AllenBills +300 
Jalen Hurts Eagles +600 
Lamar Jackson Ravens +700 
 Patrick MahomesChiefs +700 
Tua Tagovailoa Dolphins +1400 

Here's were the odds last Tuesday:

 PlayerTeam  Odds
Josh AllenBills  +350
 Patrick MahomesChiefs  +500
Jalen Hurts Eagles  +800 
 Justin Herbert Chargers+1000 
Lamar Jackson Ravens +1200 

Right before the season kicked, I had seen MVP odds for Hurts range from +1800 to +2200.

Three games into the season, the Eagles are first in yards gained and fifth in points scored. Hurts leads the whole NFL in yards per attempt (9.3) and yards per completion (13.9) while throwing for 916 yards, four touchdowns and one interception while completing 67.3 percent of his passes. He's rushed for three touchdowns as well.
