The Golden State Warriors could be crowned champions with a win over the Boston Celtics in Thursday’s Game 6. Not only would the Warriors be celebrated with a win, but so, too, would be the NBA Finals MVP.

Stephen Curry’s been the betting favorite the majority of the series, but Jayson Tatum and Andrew Wiggins are lurking. Plus, if you’re looking to dabble on a couple long shots, we’ve got those, too.

Check out the consensus odds and where to find the best price for the top MVP candidates ahead of Warriors-Celtics Game 6 (you can shop more futures odds here).

Stephen Curry 

Consensus: -376
Best Odds: +110 (DraftKings)

Curry can only get better after snapping a 233-game streak with a three-pointer in an 0-for-9 Game 5.

Also, with the majority of star players throwing up duds across the series, Curry’s still alive for MVP if Golden State loses.

Jayson Tatum

Consensus: +375
Best Odds: +400 (PointsBet)

Tatum usurped Curry as MVP favorite after the Celtics upset the Warriors in Game 1, with the forward putting up 12 points and 13 assists.

Tatum’s been consistent since — he’s scored between 23 and 28 points in the previous four games — but a 40-piece (or more) in a win could very well chop his price in half ahead of a potential Game 7.

Andrew Wiggins

Consensus: +1779
Best Odds: +2500 (DraftKings)

Wiggins is the biggest riser in this market.

He’s gone bonkers since his Game 4 coming-out party, combining for 43 points and 29 rebounds in two contests.

Shopping here is key: He’s as short as +1600 to win MVP.

Jaylen Brown

Consensus: +2000
Best Odds: +2500 (PointsBet)

Brown’s trending down after opening +1100 before the series.

Though he’s still putting up numbers due to volume, he’s been wildly inefficient of late. The small forward’s a spotty 14-of-37 (37.8%) from the field with seven turnovers over the past two tilts.

Klay Thompson

Consensus: +10000
Best Odds: +25000 (PointsBet)

Thompson looked dead in this market after starting 10-of-33 from the floor with 26 combined points in the first two games. He’s picked it up recently, however, canning at least four triples in the previous three.

Thompson’s another prime example of why line shopping is critical: One book is hanging +1500 for the shooting guard to win MVP.

Gary Payton

Consensus: +10000
Best Odds: +10000 (DraftKings)

Payton’s on the radar, but likely not worth the bet despite draining 11 of his 16 field goal attempts in the series.

Marcus Smart

Consensus: +12004
Best Odds: +17500 (Caesars)

Smart’s had flashes, but he’s been plagued by turnovers, committing an average of four per contest since Game 2.

The Oklahoma State product has also been slowed down in both the assist and rebound columns this series. After averaging 6.2 dimes and boards per game in the previous round vs. the Heat, those numbers are down to 4.2 and 4.3 against the Warriors, respectively.

Draymond Green

Consensus: +25000
Best Odds: +25000 (DraftKings, Caesars, SugarHouse)

Green’s impact to the Warriors is unmatched, but a couple two-point performances essentially shut down his chances for MVP.

Al Horford

Consensus: +25000
Best Odds: +50000 (PointsBet)

Horford raised some eyebrows after exploding for 26 in the opener. However, he hasn’t come close to sniffing that type of outing since and has failed to top 11 points the past four games.
