The 2021 NBA regular season completed play on Sunday and the MVP race still sees Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic (-6000) as the runaway favorite. But, the MVP odds have also undergone a decent shakeup between Steph Curry and Joel Embiid, who rank second and third according to the latest NBA odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.

After an series of unconscious shooting performances from Curry this past month, he's slowly been closing in on Embiid for the second-best odds in the entire league. Well, Curry finally passed Embiid for that second spot with his +2400 odds. Embiid still owns the third-best odds at +2700.

Curry has been unstoppable in the month of May after scoring 36.8 points per night on 45.2 percent shooting from the field. He's scored nearly 7.0 three-pointers per night throughout eight games in the month of May while the Golden State Warriors raced to the finish line with an 8-1 record.

Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers also finished their season strong, but his stats can't keep up with the unstoppable performances from Curry. In May, the 76ers have gone 7-2 with Embiid averaging 23.7 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.

Despite the late shakeup between Curry and Embiid, Jokic has completely run away with this award race. His -6000 odds are incredible and deserving after the big man put up career high marks in points (26.4), rebounds (10.8), assists (8.3) and field-goal percentage (56.6%). Jokic and the Nuggets finished with a 47-25 overall record and the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference.
