The NBA MVP race remains tight heading into the month of March. Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (+350) continues to push Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James (+170) at the top of the latest MVP odds from FanDuel Sportsbook.

Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic has the third-lowest odds to win MVP at +600, followed by Dallas Mavericks star forward Luka Doncic (+1100), who led the MVP odds race in early January.
