Milwaukee Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo is favored to win his third consecutive MVP award, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA MVP odds. The last time a player won three straight MVPs was Larry Bird from 1984-86, so this would certainly put Giannis in rarified air.
But he'll have plenty of competition from stars like Luka Doncic, Anthony Davis and Stephen Curry.
The Greek Freak is currently available at +390 to bring home the hardware. That puts some distance between him and the second-place Doncic (+440), the third-place Davis (+700) and the fourth-place Curry (+900).
Following a relatively clear-cut top 4, James Harden and Kevin Durant check in tied for the fifth-best odds at +1200. LeBron James (+1400), Kawhi Leonard (+1600) and Damian Lillard (+2000) round out the rest of the top 9.
As for some interesting dark-horse options, Jayson Tatum boasts +2600 odds to win the award and Devin Booker is available at +5500.
But these odds will surely continue to shift as we move toward a Dec. 22 NBA Opening Night.
