The 2022-2023 NBA Season is set to tip off in less than a MONTH…anyone else feel like it’s been sneaking up on them? I feel like the start of the NBA season gets lost in the NFL season and MLB Postseason sauce, so I’m here to remind you that it’s on its way. No better way to get ready for the NBA season than to make some early MVP bets, right fellas? So let's take a look at the odds leaders coming into the season, as provided by Bet365.

  • Luka Doncic +450

  • Joel Embiid +500

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo +525

  • Kevin Durant +900

  • Nikola Jokic +1000

  • Jayson Tatum +1200

  • Steph Curry +1200

  • Ja Morant +1400

  • Kawhi Leonard +1800

  • LeBron James +1800

  • Devin Booker +2800

  • Trae Young +4000

  • Anthony Davis +4000

  • Damian Lillard +4000

  • Jimmy Butler +4000

Not all the sportsbooks on the market have MVP odds this early, but you can be sure to bet on the NBA MVP through any of these New Jersey Online Casinos.

So, time to get to my best bets.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (+525)

Giannis somehow just gets better and better…and it’s scary to think that he’s only 28-years-old. Last season he set a career high in points per game, scoring just shy of 30 (29.9). All the while, he grabbed 11.6 rebounds per game (his third best) and 5.8 assists per game (also a third best). Giannis is already a two-time MVP, and the third may be within his grasp if he continues to perform at such a high level.

Nikola Jokic (+1000)

How could you not sprinkle a little bit on Jokic? He’s won it in each of the last two seasons, thanks to his incredible scoring and rebound numbers. Add on the fact that he dishes out almost 8 assists per game as a big man, and Jokic immediately is a force to be reckoned with. The Nuggets are also looking to be fully healthy in 2022/23, so he will have tons of support around him (Jamal Murray and MPJ) to help him get those assists numbers up. This should go without saying, but if Jokic averages a triple double, then the MVP is his.

Jayson Tatum (+1200)

Tatum was the talk of the town in the postseason last year, and I feel like we’re finally seeing him blossom into the player he was always supposed to be. He averaged 26.9 points per game and is the face of one of the best franchises in all of US sports history. While that shouldn’t matter, we all know it does.

Ja Morant (+1400)

If you’re an OddsSeeker head, then you know I love Morant and the Grizzlies. Morant averaged 27.4 points per game last season, dishing out almost 7 assists as well. I am expecting a huge season out of Morant this year, so he is who I will be backing the most. I may sprinkle a little bit on the Grizzles to win the finals as well, so keep an eye on that.

Anthony Edwards (+5000)

It’s a long shot, but Edwards was a star last year, and he could progress greatly in year three. Edwards increased his PPG from year one to year two by two whole points, and I expect more growth here in year three.

Josh Giddey (+40000)

Why not? And if this hits, I’ll be able to retire a happy man. Giddey is a fantastic player on a bad team, so he could just constantly get fed the ball and take the easy route (scoring) to the MVP. I’d tread lightly with Giddey, but think you can find decent value in the Sophomore guard.
