The Brooklyn Nets are the favorites to win the NBA title, and superstar Kevin Durant leads the early NBA Finals MVP betting at 400.
The second round of the 2021 NBA Playoffs is underway, and while the biggest focus is on who will win the Larry O’Brien Trophy, NBA Finals MVP odds are now heating up as well.
In what has been a wild NBA season, with surely more surprises in store, this popular player prop will be one to watch as players pick up their play, upsets continue to happen, and the postseason whittles down its contenders.
The Brooklyn Nets are the favorites to win the NBA Finals, so it’s no surprise that all three of the Nets’ superstars are available at 12/1 or better odds. But leading the way is Kevin Durant ( 400), an 11-time All-Star who averaged 26.9 points per game in just 35 games for Brooklyn and already has two NBA Finals MVPs on his resume.
Another athletic big out of the East keeps the theme at the top, as Giannis Antetokounmpo sits second at 550. Giannis is the reigning two-time regular season MVP, and while he and the Bucks have constantly fallen flat in the playoffs, a retooled roster provided a great early return in humiliating Miami in the first round.
Utah’s Donovan Mitchell returned from an injury to provide his team an offensive push to get by Memphis in the first round, and he’s risen to tie Giannis for second at 550 odds. The Jazz seem poised for a deep playoff run, especially with the threat of the Lakers now snuffed out.
Two explosive guards round out the Top 5, with Brooklyn’s James Harden at 750, and Phoenix’s Devin Booker at 800.
The NBA Finals MVP Award has been handed out 31 times and only once has it gone to a player on the losing team (Jerry West in 1969), a rookie (Magic Johnson in 1980) or a bench player (Andre Iguodala in 2015).
Sportsbooks will post NBA Finals MVP odds as early as the beginning of the playoffs. These NBA futures are constantly adjusted throughout the postseason depending on how well players perform as well as their team success. Sportsbooks will also adjust the NBA Awards odds based on handle and liability to certain players.
This means that on a $100 bet, you’ll stand to win $410 if Durant takes home the NBA Finals MVP Award. If it’s close to the end of the NBA Finals and a player has stood out as the obvious MVP of the series they might have a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds like this:
This means that if you bet on LeBron to win Finals MVP, you would have needed to bet $155 to profit $100.
