Giannis Antetokounmpo NBA MVP Odds
Note: This snippet is from Matt Moore’s larger MVP piece. See his analysis for all major candidate here. Odds as of Thursday, October 17.
The reigning MVP is set to only get better. Antetokounmpo dabbled in his 3-ball last season, and of course there’s a possibility he expands it. If he does, that might be a wrap given his defensive and athletic advantages. The Bucks had the best offense in the league last season, along with the best record.
I’m hesitant, though, on Antetokounmpo because I’m not certain the Bucks will repeat last year’s success. Win 50 games? Absolutely. Best record in the league? In the conference? Those are more up in the air, and I’m expecting some regression from Milwaukee. Those little chips at his resume could have big impacts on the vote, especially with how unstable the new landscape is.
