NBA MVP Odds: Jokic heads to three-peat

John Sampson February 7, 2023

The NBA season is always a long road ahead. Many matches, and a lot of changes in the standings, a fact that makes many not be sure of what is ahead. Despite that, there is a constant that doesn’t change a lot in the last five or six seasons, meaning that the NBA MVP odds present fair and square the best players in the league. Below are the top candidates, for a chance to look thoroughly at their deeds in this regular season.

At the top of the list is the current holder of the trophy, Nicola Jokic at 1.73. The Serbian center continues to improve his game, levelling up his teammates. He is averaging a triple-double with 25.1 points, 11.1 rebounds, and 10 assists per game, keeping Denver at the top of the Western Conference, in the second-best record in the league (only behind Boston Celtics). He can make history, being just the third player (the last one was Larry Bird back in the 80s) who three-peats as an NBA player. His value will continue to fluctuate on bonus sites.

Next on the line is the surprisingly consistent Joel Embiid at 3.39. He is the top scorer in the NBA, averaging 33.6 ppg, adding also 10 rebounds per game. He has been on the upswing in the last couple of months and right now, no one is a better contender to the mighty Serbian. It is the first season in a long time that he is healthy, meaning that his best performances are yet to come. Philadelphia 76ers fighting for a good spot, gaining at least the first-round home advantage in the playoffs.

Giannis Antetokoumbo follows up at 6.93. Helping the Middleton-ess Bucks sit in second place in the Easter Conference, the Greek Freak could not be thrown out of the conversation. No one would sleep on him, averaging 31.2 ppg, 12.2 rpg and 5.2 apg, despite the magnificent seasons all the others provide. Giannis is champion material, meaning that he improves his game every night, leading his team safely to the promise land. He has already won the trophy twice, so the bookies should not forget his value.

NBA MVP Odds – The rest


Luka Doncic was the clear favourite for quite some time, but his recent injuries (right heel contusion and an ankle sprain) moved him to the fourth spot on the list at 8.01. The exciting news is that he will team up with Kyrie Irving at Dallas Mavericks from now on, a fact that may cause a fall in his numbers. He definitely needs more help from his teammates, if they want to be competitive on a championship level.

The Celtics have their own candidate in the NBA MVP odds list, in the face of Jayson Tatum. According to the best football betting sites, Tatum sits fifth at 12.71, despite his breakout season. The Celtics have the best record in the league and their leader is averaging 31.1 points, 8,7 rebounds and 4.4 assists. The young core continues to provide for the city, aiming only to win a championship.

Other honourable mentions in the NBA MVP odds list are the “King” Lebron James at 54.50, one of the youngest stars in the league and the leader of the Memphis Grizzlies, Ja Morant, at 55.00 and the somehow frustrated in the Nets’ current situation, Kevin Durant at 74.20. One thing is sure, these stars will continue to step up their game, having only the Larry O’Brien trophy in their mind. Lebron tries to break Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s record for the most points scored in the history of the NBA and at the same time he continues to be the leader of the Los Angeles Lakers.
