The NBA regular season is winding down and we still have no idea who is going to bring home the title of the league's Most Valuable Player.
It has essentially become a two-man race for the NBA's MVP. Paul George threw his name in the mix for a little bit, but Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden have separated themselves from the pack.
The only issue is, they can't seem to separate themselves from each other.
Yesterday, Harden and Giannis were tied with identical odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Latest Odds to Win the #NBA #MVP via @FDSportsbook— The Duel (@TheDuelSports) March 4, 2019
G. Antetokounmpo -155
J. Harden +115
P. George +600
J. Embiid +5000
S. Curry +5000
K. Leonard +5000
K. Durant +5000
N. Jokic +7000
L. James +9500
R. Westbrook +10000
K. Irving +10000
B. Simmons +10000
For the majority of the season, the award has been Harden's to lose. That's what happens when you rattle off 32-straight games of scoring 30 points or more. The Greek Freak closed the gap earlier last week and then finally overtook Harden
Right now, it looks like the tiebreaker is wins. The Bucks are currently the best team in the NBA and you simply can't ignore the importance of winning, which is seemingly what separates Giannis over Harden.
These two still have 19 games each left to play, so a lot can change. But for now, it's Giannis's to lose.
