Current 2020 NBA MVP Betting Odds
The NBA MVP is a regular season award, which means players will have just eight more games to bolster their cases this year.
The Greek Freak is a massive favorite to win his second straight MVP at this point. His -5000 odds at PointsBet means you’d have to bet $5,000 to win $100. That converts to an implied probability of 98%.
And below them, it’s a bunch of players with very long odds, including James Harden, Kawhi Leonard and Luka Doncic, all of whom are 80/1 to win at PointsBet.
Giannis has a similar case to Stephen Curry a couple years ago when he was the first ever unanimous MVP. Curry’s stats were obviously good, but what was more impressive was the stats and record combined with his minutes. The Warriors were sitting him in fourth quarters because they were blowing out teams so regularly.
The Bucks, who have the NBA’s best record, haven’t been as dominant as those Warriors, but it’s largely been the same story. Giannis has put up 29.6 points, 13.7 rebounds and 5.8 assists — all the while playing just 30.9 minutes per game because Milwaukee has been so great.
