Every year in the NFL, there seems to be an MVP candidate that comes out of nowhere to make things interesting in the conversation down the stretch of the season.

Last year, Cooper Kupp and Jonathan Taylor made their presence felt in the MVP race, and there could be another surprise like that in 2022. Now, imagine if they came from your favorite team?

That's right, we're going to break down the top MVP candidate from each team, according to the odds at WynnBET Sportsbook.

1. Josh Allen (+600) -- Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills are the Super Bowl favorites, so it's not a surprise that Allen could take the next step in his rise to stardom in 2022.

2. Patrick Mahomes (+750) -- Kansas City Chiefs

The former MVP is looking to prove he can still lead an elite offense even with Tyreek Hill in Miami.

3. Tom Brady (+800) -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tom Brady may never retire. And, his presence is so important, that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the favorites to win the NFC.

4. Aaron Rodgers (+1000) -- Green Bay Packers

Similar to Mahomes, Aaron Rodgers is looking to prove he is still one of the game's best even without his top weapon, Davante Adams.

5. Justin Herbert (+1000) -- Los Angeles Chargers

Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers missed the playoffs last season, but with a new and improved roster, they could be a sneaky team in the AFC.

6. Joe Burrow (+1200) -- Cincinnati Bengals

Joe Burrow shocked everyone by leading Cincinnati to the Super Bowl in 2021. Does he have an MVP in him in 2022?

7. Matthew Stafford (+1500) -- Los Angeles Rams

The defending Super Bowl champs struck gold with Matthew Stafford, and they hope he can lead them back to another Super Bowl.

8. Russell Wilson (+1500) -- Denver Broncos

Russell Wilson has a new home, and he's going to be tasked with leading Denver back the playoffs for the first time since its Super Bowl 50 win.

9. Dak Prescott (+1500) -- Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys flamed out in the playoffs last season, but they have an easy road in the weak NFC East.

10. Kyler Murray (+1800) -- Arizona Cardinals

If Kyler Murray stays healthy, he's shown he can hang around in the MVP conversation.

11. Lamar Jackson (+2000) -- Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson is one of my favorite dark horse candidates to win MVP in 2022. The Ravens could be one of the league's most improved teams this coming season.

12. Derek Carr (+3000) -- Las Vegas Raiders

Derek Carr has a new weapon in Davante Adams that should make the Raiders very fun to watch on offense in 2022.

13. Deshaun Watson (+3000) -- Cleveland Browns

The biggest question around Deshaun Watson is whether or not he will be able to play in every game in 2022 due to several allegations of sexual assault against him.

14. Jalen Hurts (+3000) -- Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles are aiming to get back to the playoffs and brought in some new pieces around Jalen Hurts in 2022.

15. Derrick Henry (+4000) -- Tennessee Titans

Derrick Henry is the first non-quarterback to make this list. If the Titans are going to succeed, it's going to be on his back.

16. Matt Ryan (+4000) -- Indianapolis Colts

Matt Ryan is a massive upgrade over Carson Wentz. That's all Colts fans needed to hear.

17. Tua Taogovailoa (+5000) -- Miami Dolphins

This is a make or break season for Tua Tagovailoa with all the new weapons the Dolphins have brought in.

18. Kirk Cousins (+5000) -- Minnesota Vikings

Sure, Kirk Cousins may be the most viable MVP candidate on the Minnesota Vikings, but can the team even win enough games for him to be in the conversation?

19. Deebo Samuel and Trey Lance (+5000) -- San Francisco 49ers

The first tie between teammates. I like Deebo Samuel as the second non-quarterback to make this list.

20. Mitch Trubisky (+5000) -- Pittsburgh Steelers

I believe in Mike Tomlin-led teams, but not this much.

21. Justin Fields (+7500) -- Chicago Bears

Justin Fields needs to prove to the Chicago Bears that he can be the quarterback of the future in 2022 after the organization failed him in 2021.

22. Trevor Lawrence (+7500) -- Jacksonville Jaguars

Trevor Lawrence finally has a competent NFL coach, but is that enough to thrust him into the MVP conversation?

23. Mac Jones (+7500) -- New England Patriots

Mac Jones is going to need to be more than a game manager if he wants to win an MVP award.

24. Jameis Winston (+10000) -- New Orleans Saints

Famous Jameis (Winston) was playing great before tearing his ACL in 2021. I don't mind him as an extreme dark horse.

25. Zach Wilson (+10000) -- New York Jets

Does Zach Wilson make the leap in Year 2? Crazier things have happened...

26. Jared Goff (+10000) -- Detroit Lions

Jared Goff has a new weapon in Jameson Williams, but the Detroit Lions aren't going to be contenders in 2022 based on these odds.

27. Drew Lock (+10000) -- Seattle Seahawks

Drew Lock may get another chance to start in the NFL. That's bad news for Seattle Seahawks fans.

28. Daniel Jones (+10000) -- New York Giants

Daniel Jones edged Saquon Barkley for this honor, but both are uninspiring picks.

29. Christian McCaffrey (+10000) -- Carolina Panthers

Another running back cracks the list. The Panthers have been horrible when Christian McCaffrey has missed time with injuries, so he is the most valuable offensive player on this roster.

30. Chase Young (+10000) -- Washington Commanders

The only defensive player that has the shortest odds his team is Chase Young! What does this say about Carson Wentz...

31. Davis Mills (+15000) -- Houston Texans

Davis Mills isn't getting any love in the odds cause his team stinks, but he was solid as a rookie in 2021.

32. None -- Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons currently don't have a player listed in the MVP odds at WynnBET. Yikes.
