The second round of the NBA Playoffs is nearing a close with three series tied at 2-2 and the Phoenix Suns having already punched their ticket to the conference finals. That means the NBA Finals are approaching, and there's plenty of players who could earn the coveted Finals MVP in July.

The odds for NBA Finals MVP on FanDuel Sportsbook have shifted significantly since the start of the playoffs. And, more than midway through the conference semifinals, there's a new leader at the top in Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo.

NBA Finals MVP Odds

Antetokounmpo currently owns the best odds to win NBA Finals MVP at +410, just ahead of Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant (+430). Whoever advances from their series will likely have the inside track on Finals MVP.

Utah Jazz star Donovan Mitchell (+440) isn't far behind, but Kawhi Leonard (+650) and the Los Angeles Clippers will hope to advance past Utah to the WCF.

A pair of Suns players make up the top six in the odds with Devin Booker (+650) and Chris Paul (+750) given a serious chance to take home some extra Finals hardware. Booker and Paul led Phoenix to a 4-0 series sweep over the Denver Nuggets in the second round.

Joel Embiid (+800), James Harden (+1800), Kyrie Irving (+2500) and Paul George (+5000) round out the top 10 in the odds for Finals MVP.
