Nikola Jokic has won back-to-back MVP awards by convincing margins, but he’s not the betting favorite to make it three in a row. Instead, Luka Doncic has been pegged as the favorite to win the award at +460 odds. The Dallas Mavericks point guard is coming off a season in which he averaged 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 8.7 assists per game. Doncic was also named to the All-NBA First Team for the third season in a row. With the Mavericks poised to make the jump to championship contention in 2023, Doncic will enter the season as the most likely MVP winner.

Behind Doncic is Joel Embiid (+550), who’s been the MVP runner-up in each of the last two seasons. The Philadelphia 76ers center will be motivated to finally bring home the hardware this season.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is next on the odds board at +650 to win his third MVP award, and Jokic is right behind at a surprising 10/1.
