Steph Curry is closing in on history as he's within 10 made 3-pointers of setting the all-time NBA record. The superstar sharp shooter is also the 2021-22 leading MVP candidate at +150, per FanDuel Sportsbook's MVP odds.

Curry is the regular season MVP leader on the league's best team with Golden State 21-4 and a half game in front of the Phoenix Suns in the Pacific Division. The Warriors embark on a five-game Eastern road trip starting Dec. 11 where the two-time MVP will likely set the record in the next week either at Philadelphia, Indiana or New York.

Kevin Durant (+500) is a leading MVP contender on the NBA championship odds favorite Brooklyn Nets (17-8). Durant is the league's top scorer at 28.4 points per game. That's just ahead of Curry (27.5) and two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo (27.0).

Last year's regular season MVP Nikola Jokic (+1500) remains a top MVP challenger. The Denver Nuggets center has ESPN's highest Player Efficiency Rating while sitting No. 2 in rebounding with 13.4 per game. He's also among the league's leading scorers at 26.3 points per game.

Monitor the injury lists daily as All-Stars Paul George, Devin Booker, Jimmy Butler and LeBron James have missed recent games. Joel Embiid's return to the 76ers lineup the end of November has helped Philadelphia win 3-straight games in December while averaging 34 points per game.

Here's the updated NBA MVP odds on FanDuel Sportsbook as play continues into December.
