Marcus Cooper Jersey , we pointed out some of the new favorites in the revised MVP odds generated by the folks at Westgate. Beyond the guys now among those considered most likely to win it are some interesting developments, and a few intriguing potential wagers.First, Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson‘s odd stand at 50-1, down from 100-1. At 50-1, it feels like a great bet. If he can stay healthy (and maybe that’s why the odds are 50-1), Jackson can definitely get votes.Next, remember when early betting caused Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky‘s odds to plummet from 200-1 to 50-1? He’s now at 1,000-1.Third, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers at 20-1 is a bet to consider, given the possibility that he’ll emerge as a short-list candidate, if the Packers claim one of the top seeds in the NFC.Fourth, how about Jimmy Garoppolo at 80-1? If the 49ers finish in the No. 1 seed and if Garoppolo starts racking up more passing stats down the stretch, he could creep into the discussion.Lastly, the guys seeing their odds increase the most are Saints quarterback Drew Brees (10-1 to 500-1) , Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (25-1 to 200-1 and should be higher), Rams quarterback Jared Goff (60-1 to 200-1), Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield (25-1 to 200-1), Rams running back Todd Gurley (100-1 to 500-1 and should be much, much higher), and Giants backup quarterback Eli Manning (200-1 to 10,000-1).So if you want to make an easy buck and if you have an extra $10,000 that you can do without until February 1, bet against Eli winning the MVP award and wait to cash your ticket. LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Coach Matt Nagy is saving the big celebrations for later.He opted instead to spend “quality time” at home with his four sons, ate sushi, consumed “one beverage” and kept his eyes on the prizes still out there after the Chicago Bears clinched the NFC North.One he would love, though it probably won’t come gift-wrapped: A first-round bye.“You wanna ask me if I want the first-round bye, or the No. 1 seed? Absolutely Womens Bryce Callahan Jersey , give it to me right now,” he said.The Bears completed their worst-to-first turnaround by securing their first division title and playoff appearance in eight years.Even better, they did it by beating Aaron Rodgers and the rival Green Bay Packers on Sunday. But if they’re going to land a top-two seed and first-round bye, they still have some climbing to do.The Bears are third in the NFC behind the South champion New Orleans Saints and West champion Los Angeles Rams with two games to play. They visit San Francisco this week before closing the regular season at Minnesota.“It’s OK to celebrate and enjoy last night and yesterday,” Nagy said on Monday. “But we have bigger things that we’re trying to achieve. And I think that’s going to be the biggest challenge for us where we’re at is understanding, OK, we accomplished a good goal but that’s not enough.”The Bears (10-4) simply need a strong finish and some help.They trail New Orleans (12-2) by two games after the Saints beat Carolina 12-9 on Monday night and are one back of the Rams (11-3), though Chicago defeated Los Angeles on Dec. 9. The Bears are also two games up on NFC East leader Dallas.“There’s the ability for us to be, basically, four different seeds,” Nagy said. “Some are slimmer than others. But take that into account, it makes it easy. You go play, and you play to win and nothing changes. You literally control what you can control.”The way things play out this week could determine whether Nagy keeps his foot on the gas or rests players — particularly those who are banged up — when the Bears visit Minnesota. But if seeds are at stake heading into the regular-season finale, he likely will go full speed.“Unless you’re locked in and you can’t move Josh Bellamy Jersey , then you have to decide,” Nagy said. “To me that’s when you have to decide what you want to do. But right now, we have to win.”Simply being in this position is a welcomed change for Chicago.The drought between playoff appearances claimed three coaches and led to shrinking crowds at Soldier Field.“This was for the fans, this was for the organization and we are glad that we were able to do it,” cornerback Prince Amukamara said.With the Bears winning the North, at least one NFL team in 15 of the past 16 seasons has finished in first place in its division the season after finishing last or tied for last place.Nagy is Chicago’s first rookie coach with 10 wins since George Halas in 1920, when the franchise was in its inaugural season. With a 7-1 record at Soldier Field, Chicago matched its home win total over three seasons under former coach John Fox.But as good as that all sounds, the Bears want more.“It hasn’t happened yet,” star pass rusher Khalil Mack said. “We just got the NFC North. We got that title so far. We want to get this push. We can’t really get caught up in all of that. We have two more games we have to win.”NOTES: Though both players were still being evaluated, Nagy said he doesn’t think the injuries to S Eddie Jackson (sprained right ankle) and LB Aaron Lynch (elbow) are season-ending. Jackson picked off a tipped pass intended for Jimmy Graham at the goal line late in Sunday’s game, then had to be helped off the field when his leg bent awkwardly as he tried to slide on the return. That play also ended Aaron Rodgers’ NFL-record streak of 402 attempts without an interception. Lynch walked off the field clutching his right arm after he was hurt fighting a block on a run by Jamaal Williams in the third quarter.
