NBA MVP Odds 2024

Europeans dominated the NBA MVP voting from the 2018-19 season until last year. In 2019 and 2020, Giannis Antetokounmpo won with 11.00 (10/1/1100) odds, and in 2021 and 2022, Nikola Jokić won with the lowest odds of 2.80 (1,8/1; 180) this season.

Looking ahead to the NBA MVP odds 2024, last season, Joel Embiid, a Cameroonian, French, and US national, was MVP for the first time, with 7.80 (6,8/1; 680) odds this season.

Overview

Luka Doncic is the second-highest scorer, with a current odds of 6.40 (5,4/1; 540). The Slovenian has the best chance of becoming the best player in the league so far in his career, with the Mavericks currently tied for 3rd-6th in the Western Conference.

Last season, Embiid was the most talked about MVP, as the Serbian N. Jokić was almost no match for his rival. However, the last time Magic Johnson won the MVP three times in a row was in 1989-1990.

Jayson Tatum is also in the top five with 9.00 (8/1; 800) odds. The Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, with 13.00 (12/1; 1200) odds, must also be mentioned.

Domantas Sabonis, one of the leading candidates last season, is currently at 120.00 (119/1; 11900). Lebron James, the league's leading scorer, is 60.00 (59/1; 5900), and his teammate Anthony Davis is 60.00 (59/1; 5900).

The main NBA MVP candidates

In this section, we discuss the main candidates.

Nikola Jokić

Nikola Jokić, a Serbian, started the 2023-24 season impressively, averaging 28.8 points (career-high), 13.4 rebounds (second-best), 8.9 assists (second-best) and 33.8 minutes per game (second-best).

However, the accuracy is down a bit, with the percentages of all shots, three-pointers, and free throws almost at career lows.

The Denver Nuggets are currently third in the Western Conference with 12 wins and six losses. As you know, team results are significant in the MVP process – almost always, the MVP goes to one of the teams with the best record.

The Nuggets have been without their second most important player, Jamal Murray, who is expected to return to the court soon. Jokić must drag NBA champions alone, which adds even more points to the MVP.

Nicola Jokić MVP Odds are 2.80 (1,8/1; 180)

These are the main reasons basketball bookmakers give Nikola Jokić odds of just 2.80 (1,8/1; 180). There is still a lot of game left to play, so there is no doubt that the odds will change.

It will be interesting to see if Nikola Jokić can maintain his high level of play or if he will have more performances like the one against the Pelicans. In that game, he scored 26 points, grabbed 16 rebounds, and had 18 assists.

Triple-doubles are nothing new for the Serb, so now only the impressive numbers in the personal statistics raise an eyebrow.

Luka Dončić

The Slovenian, for whom betting sites give 6.40 (5,4/1; 540) odds, could extend the European dominance in the NBA.

Victor Wembanyama, the potential 2024 NBA Rookie of the Year, is expected to join the ranks of the most prominent Europeans within a few years. Still, right now, Doncić is the only one among the dominant players without an MVP title.

Luka Dončić MVP Odds are 6.40 (5,4/1; 540)

The star of the Slovenian national team and the Mavericks have been linked to the award several times, but it has always come down to team performance.

Last season, Doncić scored 32.4 points, grabbed 8.6 rebounds, and had eight assists per game – but the Mavericks finished just 11th in the league, which was the main reason why the Slovenian was not among the candidates for MVP.

This year, the situation is a bit different: Kyrie Irving has been with the team since the beginning of the season, and the line-up has been strengthened with solid, mediocre players in the summer, which should lead to much better team performance.

luka-doncic-mvp-odds

The Mavericks are in fifth place with six losses, the same as the teams in third and seventh place. Doncić's stats are impressive, with 30.5 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 7.8 assists per game.

The Slovenian's three-point shooting is outstanding, with 9.7 three-pointers and 3.8 rebounds per game – 39.4%, the best figures of his career. The 6.40 (5,4/1; 540) odds align with reality, and it's safe to say that Luka Doncić's MVP title is in the hands of the team's results.

Joel Embiid

The Philadelphia 76ers' leading scorer was in fantastic form last season. He scored 33.1 points per game and was the league's leading scorer. He grabbed 10.2 rebounds, had 4.2 assists, and blocked 1.7 shots.

The 76ers finished third in the Eastern Conference but had the third-worst overall win/loss record in the entire league, even better than the Nuggets, who finished first in the West.

Joel Embiid MVP Odds are 7.80 (6,8/1; 680)

The team started the season without James Harden, who was traded to the Clippers, leaving Embiid as the only bright star in Philadelphia. However, it didn't stop them from sharing the 2nd-4th place in the Eastern Conference with the Magic and the Bucks.

His stats are impressive – 32 points, 11.3 rebounds, and 6.6 assists per game.

joel-embiid

Two players in a row have won the MVP title the last few times, so don't write off Embiid, one of the leading candidates again this year with 7.80 (6,8/1; 680). And if the 76ers continue to dominate the East, the odds could potentially go down

Other MVP candidates and their odds

Celtics' Jayson Tatum is increasingly mentioned among the MVP candidates. However, the forward is different from the other players in that he focuses more on himself and less on his teammates.

The last time a player with a similar style won the league MVP was Kevin Durant in the 2013-14 season. Steph Curry, who is not a pure point guard, may share some similarities.

Jayson Tatum MVP Odds are 9.00 (8/1; 800)

However, since the 2016-17 season, the MVP has been won by potential triple-double machines – Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Nikola Jokić. These are players who do everything on the court, and that is the main reason why Tatum's odds on NBA MVP are 9.00 (8/1; 800).

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is in a similar situation, with 13.00 (12/1; 1200), which is a substantial increase compared to the start of the season, thanks to the Thunder's very good start.

nba-mvp-candidates-Shai-Gilgeous-Alexander

Although he plays the point guard position and spends much time with the ball, he makes relatively few assists, 6.2 per game. However, this is the best result of his career.

What's more impressive is that the Canadian is scoring 30.4 points, making all his shots with 53.4% accuracy and 93.7% of his free throws. If the Thunder stays on top, it wouldn't be surprising if the 13.00 (12/1; 1200) odds start dropping even further.

Looking at the other stars in the league, Kevin Durant is 22.00 (21/1; 2100), Anthony Edwards is 25.00 (24/1; 2400), Stephen Curry is 26.00 (25/1; 2500), and Devin Booker is 27.00 (26/1; 2600). These players have the potential to finish quite high with their teams.

However, the Suns' situation is such that the key players can hinder each other – both Durant and Booker are equally important, so the odds for both are high.

Remember that Bradley Beal is on the team and is nursing an injury. Anthony Edwards' MVP odds may decrease if the Timberwolves hold first place in the Western Conference.

Damian Lillard MVP Odds are 70.00 (69/1; 6900)

Damian Lillard, who has been traded to the team, has odds as high as 70.00 (69/1; 6900) even though the Bucks are 2-4 in the Eastern Conference. However, Antetokounmpo is statistically ahead of his teammate here, which is the main reason for the odds.

It should be noted that Lillard is one of the leading candidates to win the NBA Clutch Player of the Year Award with odds of 4.00.
