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