New York Knicks forward Julius Randle has continued his rise to hold the lead in the latest Most Improved Player odds at FanDuel Sportsbook.

It's a two-man race between Randle (-155) and Jerami Grant (+145) of the Detroit Pistons. Randle has made a mighty surge since February when his odds were +6500 at FanDuel Sportsbook. Just over three weeks ago he was +480. and trailing Grant and nearly even with Christian Wood (+500). But Randle's surge saw him move up to -130 last week and he's since extended his lead as the -155 favorite.

Randle leads the playoff-bound Knicks (24-23) with career highs of 23.0 points, 10.8 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. He's hitting a solid 41.9% of his 3-point shots, and has been an effective catch-and-shoot scorer.

Grant has exploded in his first year with the Detroit Pistons, averaging 22.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.1 blocks per game. He's making 86.6% of his free throws, but all his efforts have not been enough to keep the Pistons (13-33) out of last place in the Eastern Conference.

Christian Wood (+1400) of the Rockets has fallen back from three weeks ago, while Jaylen Brown (+2400) of the Celtics, Zion Williamson (+2400) of the Pelicans and Zach LaVine (+4200) with his 27 points per game for the Bulls round out the six leading players in the odds.
