POWER️ RANKINGS

NBA awards betting is an absolute roller coaster. Who wants to buckle up for one more ride with NBA Finals MVP futures?

Giannis Antetokounmpo (+400): His odds have risen from +260 after his Game 1 back injury.

Jayson Tatum (+450): Tatum took the Celtics to the Finals last year and this year’s team is even better. So is Tatum.

Kevin Durant (+800): He may be surrounded by superstars in Phoenix, but that didn’t stop him from winning back-to-back NBA Finals MVPs with the Warriors.

Joel Embiid (+1000): Can the likely regular-season MVP become the first player to win both awards in the same season since LeBron James in 2013?

Nikola Jokic (+1000): Expectations are sky-high for Jokic with the two-time MVP having his healthiest playoff supporting cast since the bubble.

Stephen Curry (+1600): When Curry has been on the floor, the Warriors have outscored the Kings by 14. While on the bench, they’ve been outscored by 25.

Jaylen Brown (+1600): Brown is the ideal sidekick for Tatum and has the potential to outshine him if the latter slumps in the Finals again.

Devin Booker (+2200): Booker excelled in his postseason debut in 2021 with an NBA playoff first-timer record of 601 points. Is third time the charm for getting a ring?

LeBron James (+2800): Interestingly, LeBron’s odds worsened from +2200 after the Lakers’ Game 1 victory. Is Austin Reaves (+30000) worth a look?

Anthony Davis (+3500): Injuries are a concern, but not many can match his two-way impact.
