Giannis Antetokounmpo is bagging awards like a full-on looter lately. Is scoring champ the next feather in the Greek Freak’s cap?

He took home All-Star Game MVP last year, followed by Finals MVP en route to the Bucks’ title.

And despite narrowly trailing MVP front-runner Joel Embiid in points per game, Antetokounmpo is favored — albeit slightly — to pull away at season’s end.

Those two and LeBron James are the only three players in the league above the 29-point mark with about 24 games in the season.

James is in the mix, but will he have the legs down the stretch? He’s logging 36.8 minutes per game, on pace for the most since his 2017-18 campaign.

Steph Curry was last year’s winner in this category, posting an even 32 points per game. He and Wizards guard Bradley Beal (31.3) were the only two players north of 28.8.

Curry, off an All-Star Game MVP bid this past weekend, can be had at 75-1 ($100 wins $7,500).

Few players can flip the switch quicker than the three-time champ, though he’ll need a serious boost in the second half: He’s averaged just 23.4 points in 22 contests across January and February, after putting up 27.9 over the first three months.

DeMar DeRozan (+900), meanwhile, has been a stone-cold killer in his first season with the Bulls.

His 1,547 total points entering the break are most in basketball and are 72 more than the next-closest player (Trae Young, 1,475).

Players in this betting market, available at FanDuel, must play 58 games.
