There are only a few games remaining in the 2020-21 NBA regular-season. The NBA Most Valuable Player odds show Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets center.
Jokic’s NBA MVP odds now at -2000 (95.2 per cent implied probability) at the top basketball betting sites. This is his first NBA Most Valuable Player Award. Jokic may be accused of being the victim of injuries to Joel Embiid and LeBron James, but the Nuggets are still at 45-24 SU this season. “The Joker,” is the reason.
NBA MVP Odds Are Dampering Due to Injuries
Although it’s not the Madden cover curse, being tabbed the favorite in NBA Most Valuable Player Odds was a terrible experience for the faves. After Joel Embiid, Sixers center, was named the favorite in MVP odds betting, he twisted his knee and fell to the ground. Initial bettors believed he was finished for the season, but he has since been back in the lineup and appears to be his dominant self.
Embiid still has a chance to win NBA MVP in 2021, with just two games remaining in the regular season. If the Sixers finish in the Eastern Conference first and Embiid plays well, voters should still consider the Cameroonian giant man who has been truly dominant on both ends of the ball.
Embiid, a seven-footer with a history of injuries, was still able to play. However, LeBron James’s injury caused the NBA MVP odds to be shaken.
LeBron is a legend in the NBA. He has not suffered any major injuries other than his December 2018 groin strain. LeBron, 36, has been an 18-year veteran of the NBA. However, after his long absence, LeBron is now considered a very unlikely NBA Most Valuable Player.
