The left-arm paceman has proved a thorn in England's side with match-winning displays in Brisbane and Adelaide as Australia have established a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.
Johnson followed up a nine-wicket haul at the Gabba with another eight wickets in a thumping 218-run victory to secure the man-of-the-match award for the second successive Test.
And the 32-year-old, with 17 wickets at an average of 12.70, bids for a hat-trick of awards at his home ground Perth when the third Test gets underway on Friday.
Sky Bet cricket trader Jon Hesford said: "Johnson has certainly answered his critics in style in this series.
"He's been in devastating form and England's batsmen have had no answer to his shear pace and aggression."
Johnson has a great record at the WACA and both he and Ryan Harris took nine wickets apiece in the 2010 Perth Test as Australia secured a crushing 267-run victory. The online bookmaker make Johnson 7/1 favourite to win the MOTM award for a third time in the decisive Third Test.
Sky Bet are offering 7/4 for Johnson to secure exactly three and 16/1 for four and 100/1 for a clean sweep of five MOTM awards during the series.
Hesford added: "He's already got two man-of-the-match awards in the bag so the 7/4 for exactly three awards in this Ashes Series looks great value we just hope he doesn't win it five times."
