The MVP race is extremely close for the first six weeks of the 2022-23 season, and it’s a three-way race between the best talent in the league. Giannis Antetokounmpo is currently in the lead, but not far behind are Luka Doncic and Jayson Tatum. All three have seen great individual and team success this season.
NBA betting sites have Giannis at (+275), Luka at (+290) and Tatum at (+300) to win the MVP this season. Antetokounmpo is a two-time MVP winner in his career, while Doncic and Tatum are looking for their first. Both the Celtics and Bucks are currently the top two teams in the East and the Mavs are currently eighth in the West.
It will be an exciting race all season long to see who can take out the other and win the hardware when it matters.
