The odds for a Pittsburgh Steelers player to be named NFL MVP are not good

The odds have been released in regards to who might claim the 2015 NFL MVP, and for Pittsburgh Steelers players, it wasn't pretty.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have some incredible talent on their roster. Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown, just to name a few. Nonetheless, most would admit that when it comes to a major award like NFL MVP, those are typically reserved for players named Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.

The Bovada sports book in Las Vegas recently released the odds for the 2015 NFL MVP, and for the triplets out of the Steel City it isn't pretty in terms of their odds to win such a prestigious award. Roethlisberger and Bell are tied for the best odds on the team with 20/1 odds to win the award, and Brown comes in at 50/1 odds to win the award.

Not the best odds for a quarterback who threw for the most passing yards in 2014, a running back who is single-handedly re-defining the position and a wide receiver who is simply can't be covered. Nonetheless, you won't hear any member of the Steelers complaining about such a thing. After all, success in the Steel City is defined by Lombardi trophies, not individual accolades.

Take a look at the top odds to bring home the NFL MVP award this season:

Aaron Rodgers (5/1)
Andrew Luck (7/1)
Adrian Peterson (12/1)
J.J. Watt (12/1)
Peyton Manning (16/1)
Le'Veon Bell (20/1)
Tom Brady (20/1)
Drew Brees (20/1)
Jamaal Charles (20/1)
Ben Roethlisberger (20/1)
Russell Wilson (20/1)

Although having a player from your favorite team bring home the NFL MVP award would be nice, I'm pretty sure any fan of the Steelers would take a "sticky" Lombardi over a MVP award. Let's hope the 2015 Steelers do just that when the 2015 season officially begins in less than a month.
